Yesterday, I spent more time than I should, listening to Clay Aiken sing. I started with Perfect Day, then clicked on Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You. I had to listen to Something About Us more times than I could count. And, since I love the holidays, I enjoyed All Is Well and The Christmas Waltz. Yep…it was a good day!
What this did was make me hunt for some answers.
What is Music? Why am I so touched?
Why do I feel better after listening?
Music is what life sounds like.
Music washes away from the soul like the dust of everyday life. ~Berthold Auerbach
He who sings scares away his woes. ~Cervantes
In music the passions enjoy themselves. ~Nietzsche,
Beyond Good and Evil, 1886
Do you have a Clay Aiken song that you listen to more than others?
