Music. What do I want to say about music. It changes me. It changes my mood, my behavior.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have fallen in love with someone who is moved by music more deeply than I am. Matt is a man who is constantly seeking, listening to, or making music. It’s funny, for how much I love hearing the sounds of music, I often find myself hours into my day, working away, in silence. I don’t know why that is. I just forget to put something on. Matt never forgets. It’s the first thing he does and I’m always reminded of how much I wish I did that when he walks into a quiet room and puts on just the right music to enhance whatever it is that we’re doing. O.K. maybe not every time, but 9 times out of 10 for sure.
Recently he came home and shared one of his new favorite songs and it instantly became one of mine as well. I thought today I would share that song. It’s great if you can just sit and listen. Putting head phones on would be even better. Get lost in the song and the mood that she creates with the melody and her voice. It’s a bit haunting I would say, but there’s something so smooth and relaxing at the same time.
I know it’s not for everyone and if it’s not for you, simply turn it off and chalk it up to a difference of taste. But, if you like it, and you’re like me, you may just find yourself playing it again and again and again. Her name is Imogen Heap and she was nominated for 2 grammy’s in 2006.
SInce I couldn’t figure out how to just upload the song to this post, I’m giving a link to a site for you to play it. When you launch the site, there is a bar in gray that lists the song duration and to the right of that is a play button. Enjoy!
