Are you someone’s darkness?

03What does music do for you?  Is it background noise?  Does it make you happy or get you pumped up?  Is there a song that can make you cry?

Why does the music give you that feeling?  Is it the voice, the words, the instruments?  Does the song remind you of something to give you that feeling?

Last night at work I listened to a song that just with the first couple of notes I had tears in my eyes.  It takes me back to years ago when I first saw an episode of a show that even as I have watched it over the years even though I know what is going to happen I cry.

Do you have a problem free philosophy?
