What’s Going On – Marvin Gaye

I recently went through our vast music collection. I wanted to put together a few songs that lifted my heart and made my toes tap. Maybe even a few that make me shimmy and shake. I put together an Uplift Mix. What a lovely meandering through my past. Each song reminded me of where I was when I was listening to them, but also how far I have come.

Pump up the volume – M/A/R/R/S

I could remember the best moments of my life, the saddest moments, and everything inbetween. Some songs have always been there for me. My favorite is Little Wing, by Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s song. It always seems to release whatever emotion is within me. If I am sad, his licks are so terribly mournful; if I am happy, each phrase is more joyful than the last. This one song has got me through so many things in life. Just music. Simply listening to one song. It changes everything. It heals.

I encourage you to dust off those old vinyl jackets, scan through your collection, and make yourself a modern day mixtape of your favorites. It is transformative!
