MUSIC and what it means to you...

I am not a scientist or professional about this subject so stand by for simply my own personal take on music.

When I am working in the office, I always have the radio on, or I’ll be listening to a music playlist, depending on my mood.

This sounds weird but bear with me.

Music evokes powerful memories and emotions. It starts to plant these memories from early childhood; Nursery rhymes, songs at playgroup, hymns at school, theme tunes to toddler’s favourite television shows.

Recently, I would suggest Baby Shark was a song we couldn’t escape from.

Seeing the joy on children’s faces when they heard it was really heart warming and I just know they will remember the tune for many years. Hopefully, it will take them back to happy childhood memories.

Have you ever checked the Top 10 from the year you were born? There were three number ones from the Beatles in mine! My mum and dad loved music too, so I was weaned on Jim Reeves, Val Doonican, Elvis Presley etc!

In my humble opinion the 80s had the best music and when I hear certain songs I am whizzed back to when I was younger.

We should not underestimate the power of music. Music therapy is often used to help people with Dementia. It triggers emotions in the brain. Happy memories.

Music means so many things to so many people. Think of all the genres.

Do you have a favourite album?

The music and entertainment industry is being very badly affected by the current situation.

Theatres, discos, concerts, festivals, all cancelled and on hold for the foreseeable future. So many industry people out of work.

I really hope this situation changes quickly so we can all get out and celebrate with great music again.

Music is a massive topic and I will definitely be writing more about in the future!
