So many songs out there, flying thru the air waves to the point where we find ourselves with some tune or lyrics caught in our heads…
Singing: “I’m stuck on ‘bandaide brand’ cause ‘bandaides’ stuck on me.”
We subconsciously hear things, picking up what has been put into a clever jingle.
I stopped to think abour what is going into our ears & sticking in our minds?
This took me back to some old songs that talk about this and offer a solution…here are a few…
Rez Band (Resurrection Band) with Elevator Musik:
“Just What I Need” by Prodical:
I remember Barry Manilow talking about how he got his break into music by writing commercial jingles. I wish I had a video clip of him doing those live. You’d be amazed by all that he wrote. Those short 8 to 16 measures (30 seconds or so) ditties that call out the name of some product that claims to make the world a better place. I’ve found my self smiling as I break out into a song, ‘I like to buy the world a ‘Coke’ and keep it company!’ When ever I hear the original tune to that I regress back to the clever Coke commercial…
Here is what I’m mean for those who don’t remember or missed out on growing up in the same generation:
We have great musicians and music in this world and music is probably one of the most powerful tools for learning, selling & celebrating things.
Music. It’s up to us what to do with it.
Barry Manilow song “I Write The Songs”:
Music. Given as a gift. What do we do with it? What do we say in our songs?
I’ve been going back to Music that helped me through my teen years, to consider what I really need, what I want to focus on and what I want to join in saying.
“What you need” by Joe English (The English Band):
“Don’t Stop The Music” by DeGarmo & Key (The D&K Band):
What ever season you are in may music add to your life not take away.
“What this world needs Is music that feeds, Not elevator musik” -Rez Band
We are not slaves to others advice. Daily seek the truth & fill your mind & heart with the good things God has for us. Read the book, don’t wait for the movie.
Tonight i’m publishing a post along the same lines’ “I Heard The Bells”.
