Music Is The Medicine Of The Mind.

What song is your favourite to listen to if you need to relax after a stressful day? How about just before going on a night out? Or even in the car? Music can be used in so many different situations & for so many different moods but also certain songs can evoke different emotions or even memories. When I went through a very painful time in my life I listened a lot to Samuel Barbers Adagio For Strings, literally my favorite piece of music ever. It brought an immediate sense of mental calmness to me & still does to this day. At my Mums funeral two very different songs were played, Roy Orbison’s Pretty Woman & Alison Moyet’s The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face. The first makes me smile instantly, the second gives me a little heartache. Music is also used as therapy for depression, anxiety & even more recently to help with Alzheimer’s Disease & those suffering with Dementia. So whatever the situation, feeling or emotion there’s always a song to suit!
