I put together a compilation of random songs a couple of years ago, which I’ve recently enjoyed listening to daily, along with an assortment of other CDs. It has a mish-mash of songs that don’t go seem to go together, except in the unique moods and emotions they evoke, as each track plays.
At work I listen only to classical. It helps me stay focused and grounded. At home, I begin my mornings with classical and make my way around. With this compilation, it brings my energy up. It makes me want to get up and dance to high-energy, techno-house, soul, reggae, Santana, Pink—and in between it all, I’ve placed this well known beautiful piece—Time to Say Goodbye. It causes me to pause, to stop. I sway, move in a very different way than the songs before or the songs after. And here watching Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman, it fills me with so much.
It seems the perfect song for this Sunday, as the week comes to a close… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_JLkIOnq04&feature=related
