I can't pin point when the music stopped for me, I just know for the last 20 years I lost the music. I lost the magic of instruments and the glory of voices. I lost the magic of how music just made me feel just so happy(need a new word).
I found it - a week after activation. Of course it sounded terrible, just plain horrible. :( I was determined to find it again and make it better than before. So I took my husband's ipod video and set out to learn music again. It started with one song, "Little Jeanine" by Elton John. I pulled the lyrics up on the computer and sat and sang to the music. I listened to the this song, oh 30 to 60 times in one day. I kept it up until I understood the words and could pick up the piano. Oh how wonderful. Then slowly each day I added another song until my library is now 70. (thank you Minglewood for itune cards)
Now my latest obsession is the song "Everyone wants to rule the world" by Tears for Fears. I keep listening to it over and over and over and over again. I can't crack its code. I look at the lyrics, but somewhere in the middle I get lost. I also am overwhelmed by the fantastic instruments - the piano, the guitar, and the drums. Just something makes me listen around 70 times just yesterday. My husband who can hear the song through the ear buds, and I drove him completely crazy. Not a little, but the kind that he had ask me to leave the room so he could have some peace. Me - I just enjoyed another couple hours listening to the same song. I even had to listen one more time this morning walking to the office to go to my mailbox. And of course I made Vanessa and the kids listen to it again on the way home. So I need some new songs, please leave some suggestions. Please my husband begs you!
