Life’s Music

Sometimes you wish your life had a soundtrack. Sometimes you think your life does have a soundtrack. Sometimes, you want nothing but the comfort of your old favorites. And sometimes you find new music that just seems to be right for where you are in life. I’ve recently come across “Mumford and Sons”, which seems to fall into the last category. Somehow, it’s just right for me at this time. Almost all their songs invoke some kind of emotion in me that relates to my life in the past year or two that I want to hold on to. And when the next song starts playing, it gently carries me over to another emotional mind set that, by the end of the song, I then want to hold on to. When the next song starts, the cycle repeats. And it continues like this throughout the entire album. When the album ends, its like just after you’ve had a big crying session and you start to see things clearer and feel that things are a bit better now. And if I put the album on random order, the experience is slightly different, but with the same results. I know it won’t be the same for others as it is for me while listening to these songs, but I thought I’d share a few of them just the same. This is the music that is just right for me at this time in my life. It’s not my soundtrack, but just right just the same.
