From my desk to your ears 5.28.21
Getting the vibes on a beautiful day. Cranking up the tuneage. Throwing in some new stuff. Be it new to you or brand spanking new, You can really get a vibe with these. Feeling the feels while stuck in your head can let you just let go and ride the flow of the music.
I have been speaking visual for my entire life. Painting pictures in peoples heads creates amazing story telling. Sometimes you can visualize everything that the storyteller tells you. With music it is the same vibe. The ability to close your eyes. Let the flow of the music and the lyrics take you on a journey. Truly getting the vibes is not like just cranking the music as loud as it can go. It is about letting the music just take you.
Some music allows you just to kick back and not think about a thing, Others allow you to fully hear all the elements of the song. Embrace the emotion and totally feel it all. Sometimes if your lucky you can close your eyes and piece together a visual to go with the emotion and the vibe of the song.
