Last night I heard this song on the radio. I was reminded of a friend who once quoted me a Jackson Browne lyric. (I think it was in an email). At the time, the quote made me think of the boy I once knew and I felt as if he were sitting next to me, reading me poetry.Good music is like that. We understand the notes, the words, the magic. The classics, like Mozart and Handel speak to my heart. Country and folk music tell a story. For me, jazz is happy music. And even pop culture or rock music can take me to a place that is worlds away. It’s poetry in sound.
May you find poetry in the music.
