I have always loved music, always. And, throughout life have had many favorite artists/singers that have expressed just the right feelings. I know I am not the only one that feels this way, (even without reading research studies on it). I bet as you read this, you are nodding your head and making a mental list of artists and songs that have helped you through rough times, and spoke of the pain in your heart. I know there are many songs that have also spoken of the joy in my heart and happy times.
One such artist is Janis Ian. Her song "At Seventeen" was an anthem for me, as I'm sure it has been for many women. As was "The Come On".
I love all kinds of music really. Anything that gets my booty to shakin'. The other day I was standing at a machine at work. Lately at work they have had the best muzak, a really great mix of all kinds of music. Spanning many decades. So, I'm standing there, bobbing my head, shaking my hips a little, ya know just getting into the beat. I turned and there was a male customer standing there watching me. He was smiling, and I was blushing.
