Recently, I’ve been super inspired by new music and old favorites. I’ve been Shazaming up a storm. Seriously. Even if I know the name of a song, I use the app to store the name of the song until I can get back to my computer. Whoever invented Shazam deserves a billion dollars. It’s brilliant.
In particular, the music during the fashion shows I went to were amazing. I do not dance in public. Ever. But I was so ready to dance in my seat. I was just way into it. Between the lights, the crowd, the beautiful models, and the gorgeous clothes… the music was just perfect. I don’t think I ever really considered how necessary music was until this weekend. I mean, I hear it yes, but it really can change perceptions, turn moods around, and (most importantly) indirectly convey entirely new levels of emotion.
I could feel myself walking with an extra pep in my step while playing the playlist. It’s upbeat and happy. It’s so funny because the songs I put into these playlists absolutely correlate to my mood at the time. Sometimes I look back and think about the failed relationship I was lamenting over or the anxiety behind a giant event. These playlists really become like the soundtrack to my life… at least for that particular month. In fact, I may or may not pop my earbuds in on my city walks and pretend like I actually am living in a movie. (Okay, please tell me I’m not the only one who does this!?)
What songs are topping your playlists (slash soundtrack your life)?
