Today, celebrate three songs that are significant to you.
Writing 101. Day 3.
Three songs of significance. With some thought this becomes a very interesting question, it is not asking the most significant, or even for ones that have a positive significance. It is simply asking to celebrate three significant songs.
So… what three to pick.
1) This is the Moment, from Jekyll and Hyde.
A friend of mine sang this at our High School graduation. And since then I have a hard time hearing the song without thinking back to the friends I had then — many of whom are still my very good friends now. So I hear this song, and I think of my friends that have stuck with me through many years. Friends I’ve been close to, and drifted apart from, and drifted back together. Friends that have helped me understand that sometimes there are people in your life who you can connect to in such a way that you will always be able to come together again and connect again.
2) Pachelbel’s Canon in D.
Yeah.. so you know how sometimes significant doesn’t mean good, right? There was, once, a time when I thought this was a beautiful song. But, I play (sort of) the cello, and in a chamber music group we played this song. By the end of that experience, my feelings about Pachelbel’s was something less than loving. Seriously, I nearly literally fell asleep while playing it once.
This guy sums it up much better, and more entertainingly than I could.
3) Rockabel’s Canon
Yes, the song that made me actually have some fun with Song #2. And it has become one of my favorite songs… at least, the Piano Guys version of the song…. still not so fond of the original, but at least it doesn’t make me want to scream anymore….. And it reminds me that sometimes you just need to play :)
