What an interesting creation music is. I learned a long time ago to stay away from music when my emotions are out of control. Maybe it is the susceptibility to depression, but music certainly has a sway over me.
Today, I decided to back up my ITunes library, and I came across some oldies but goodies.
Sunglasses At Night – Corey Hart
Don’t Let It Bring You Down – Annie Lennox
Every Time You Go Away – Paul Young
Ok, I know the Seether one is a new release of an old song, but I always loved the original.
Back in my teen years, a lot was said in church about whether satan was in control of all secular music. But I’m inclined to say that while he has a grasp on some of it, he doesn’t have the entire industry locked up. Some of these songs are written about love. And God is the Author of True Love, is He not?
Sometimes, listening to music from my youth, I am transported back to the days that love was only something to hope for, not something to regret, or to fear. Each song reminded me of a different set of circumstances that I was experiencing back then.
Music is the Ultimate Time Machine….
