Music transports me. It makes me feel so many things, but it also moves me through my day in time. It moves me through my day in space as well; listening to music while I walk to work seems to propel me. Recently I heard a song that vividly brought back a time and place like scent or taste will do.
I hear this and in my mind I’m on a train in Europe watching the summer green flash past the window. I’ve got my Walkman cassette player in hand. Listen:
When I walk down the street with music I’m the star of my own movie. Am I the plucky young detective, tough as steel with a heart of gold? Or am I sauntering down the road unaware of the slimy creature right behind me? Perhaps I’m the alien visitor from another planet, the about-to-be-discovered heiress, or the caregiver for a dying parent. Music tells the story. Is it an adventure? A quirky Indie film? Romantic comedy?
You get the idea. So for fun today, I’m blogging some soundtracks. Pick your movie.
