Music really is a magical thing. It has the power to bring out emotions in individuals, bring people together, and physically relax someone – mind, body, and soul. I have always been a fan of all kinds of music: classic rock, alternative, pop, rap, rhythm and blues, motown, etc. I certainly can appreciate a collection of sounds and words that create a connection with someone using only one of their senses.
Last week I posted the first of three parts for the 3 Quote Challenge by sharing some of my favorite television quotes. This week, I’ll be continuing the challenge with 3 of my favorite music lyrics.
“And I’m alive
And I don’t need a witness
To know that I survived
I’m not looking for forgiveness
I just need light
I need light in the dark as I search for the resolution” – Jack’s Mannequin, The Resolution
It’s no shock that I love Jack’s Mannequin and Andrew McMahon. It was actually incredibly difficult to pick just one quote from one song to highlight – I could do a whole 3 Quote Challenge on his music.
“You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will live as one.” – John Lennon, Imagine
It’s a classic, there’s no doubt about it. It’s likely that most of the world knows the words to the song Imagine. The picture, while not the best, is a piece I painted for my sister a few years ago with the lyrics to the song.
“All the things that you will do
And now I’m standing next to you
And darling I will see you through the rest of our lives
With you beside me I have won
I’m glad I’ve waited for so long
There is no doubt that you are the one
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life” – Michelle Featherstone, Man and Wife
This was the song Justin and I danced to at our wedding reception. It’s awkward to dance in front of a room full of people, but I loved listening to this song as we celebrated our new marriage.
Music is pretty awesome. If you’re a music fan, I want to hear your favorite lyrics! If you’re reading and want to share – JOIN THE CHALLENGE!
Next week – the final post for the 3 Quote Challenge.
