This exercise is a little music therapy for you. Once you've picked your songs, listen to them. What is it about your song choices that speak to you?
What song never fails to pick you up?
What song can make you cry when you hear it?
What song inspires you to take on your life? the world?
Is there a song that represents the darkness of your life?
Give it some thought please.
Here are a few of mine....
Everybody Hurts by REM...never fails to make me cry and inspires me to hold on.
Disturbia by Rhianna....marks the darkness of my emotions and life
Tubthumping by Chumbawamba...I get knocked down but I get up again ain't never gonna keep me down
Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves....gets me smiling almost every time...walking on sunshine baby yeah! and don't it feel good?
Just like the things we say to ourselves, our music can inspire us. What music "talks" to you?
