Ready to play? Here is The $100 Question for Wednesday, May 19:
Music. It soothes and comforts us. It gets us moving and shaking. Its words and melodies associate with memories in our heads and makes us remember when. It defines us.
Music has always been a big part of my life--from the time I was nine, I've played piano by ear, recreating music I'd heard on the radio or on TV. Once I got to college, I even got to the point when I was creating my own masterpieces (?), and the tone set by those remind me of people, thoughts, feelings, and events.
Always for me, it is about the music. It is about the clever rise and fall,trills,key changes, and well-written timing. But I do love songs with stories, which is why I eventually drifted over into the country music genre. I love a good beginning, middle, and ending full of plot and clever hook. The more meaningful, the better.
So here's the $100 question for today:
What one song defines your life right now?
I know, it's a tough one, right? Tongue-in-cheek, I always say that "Low" by Flo-Rida is my song. (you know, "Them baggy sweat pants and the reeboks with the straps...she turned around and gave that big booty a slap...she hit the flo', next thing you know, shawty got low low low low low low low low...")
