Mash-up: Sing a Song of Sixpence

I definitely cannot say it as well as these three did:

Ray Charles: “I was born with the music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me – like food or water.”

Aldous Huxley: “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”

Billy Joel: “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”

I think I was looking for something this week to calm me, to heal me, to express the inexpressible. These three blog posts reminded me that sometimes you don’t need to look for what you want, you need to open your ears and listen for it.

    1. Thanks, Laird. I didn’t mention in the post but I love Will with the mullet and open shirt. Clearly the way he would live in the 80s.

  1. Music is the great equalizer, whether we have it inside of us or just a desire to enjoy it. It can makes us experience every emotion known to man…that alone proves it’s more than man, don’t you think? Thanks for the great links, Sara!

  2. Music is such a source of inspiration, motivation, and relaxation in my life. Thanks for the links and I’m glad the Bard made it in to your list. 🙂

    1. For me as well. And of course the Bard made it. I’m just waiting for the Julius Ceasar list I read might come to a post in the near future.

So what do you think?
