Music Monday

I know I know..its been a month...bad Stefani bad!!!!


This weeks pick I made it tough on myself.  You see music is the universal language for so many people. It can hit you so hard or it can make you cringe by just the right or wrong notes.  Every song writer usually has a story to the meaning of it....or they just put a great rhyming melody together and its a big hit.

But just as people come with all kinds of layers to do songs.  A song may mean one thing to someone but take on a totally different meaning to someone else.  That's when a good song is really a great song.  When you can dig down beneath the different layers and see the beauty that comes from with in it.  The true meaning of music, like all art, is seen through the eye of the beholder.  Even some of the crappiest of songs...are a true piece of artwork in their own form.   Just like the famous pieces of art that you wonder what all the fuss is about.

This week I chose for Music Monday the Red Hot Chili Pepper's song Snow (Hey-o). I chose this song not only cuz I like the melody and the beat...but because this song can be interpreted many  ways.  A quick obvious interpretation could be that its about drugs...cocaine or heroine.  But if you get past the first layer and start digging might find more to the song.  Could it be about a man that is trying to recover and break free from drugs and find his own self worth?  Could it be about life in general. That there is more to it that what you see on the outside? 

The interpretation is really in the eye of the beholder and what you want to take away from it. All people are unique...all songs are unique. That's the great beauty in it all. God works his magic in breath taking ways that who are we to question it.

So here you is my Music Monday pick....

and just for fun.....take a look at this 9 year old boy....truely talented....

Peace out and luvs to ya'll
