Music Creates Connection

music-is-a-world-within-itself-with-a-language-we-all-understand

This blog will be about the connection that music brings to people, especially in ways that people do not fully realize anymore. In today’s world,society has become overtaken with technology and people are slowly losing the ability to interact with each other face-to-face. This musical connection blog will be about how music can be bring back this human connection to one another. Music is something that has always been felt and shared, from religion, to different cultures, music has been around throughout history and has been there to help tell the stories of others. It has a way of connecting each other through similar and different reasons that brings out an emotional connection that is not felt as much in today’s world. I am a college senior and have been observing the lack of face-to-face interaction around campus for awhile now. One thing I have come to notice is that most college students have their headphones in while walking to class and most are listening to music. This is where the idea came to me for this blog. This will be a blog where I will talk with people and other students to get their feelings on music and how they think it can connect them to others without needing a small bright screen in their face. People can comment and interact on this blog about their feeling with music and how it brought them closer with other people in hopes of them realizing that music is a great way to bring back that face-to-face interaction/connection that this world is slowly losing. I will be suggesting songs  of the day, discussing people’s different experiences (including my own) with music and concerts and how they feel about music bringing back face-to-face interaction to this technologically driven world. Music is one of the most powerful entities in this world that expresses and articulates feelings and emotions that humans cannot express with words alone. Music teaches us how to feel and with that, it teaches us how to connect with others. As the legendary Dave Grohl once said” You can sing a song to 80,000 people and have them sing it back to you for 80,000 different reasons”.
