Sometimes nothing soothes an aching soul like the warm embrace of your favorite song.
“People haven’t always been there for me, but music has.” ― Taylor Swift
Most everyone in my life has been there when I needed them. I’ve been fortunate in that regard. But I’d be lying if I said that every single person has been there every single time. There have been times when I couldn’t find a friend. During those times, I’ve been blessed to have music that comforts me.
My favorite songs by my most cherished artists have often filled my ears with words of solace. Modern technology makes it easier to hear these songs of consolation, so I am able to hear those old familiar voices wherever I go. I am often reminded of the days when we would have to wait to hear our favorite songs on the radio, so the instant access associated with today’s technology is a godsend. When the sweet strains of nostalgia are needed, I can simply dial up my old musical friends and let them sing and play to my heart’s content.
I have spent countless hours talking with friends and family, often finding refuge in their company and attention. Nothing can ever fully replace the human element, as we will always need to see familiar faces and hear friendly voices. But I have come to realize that sometimes nothing soothes an aching soul like the warm embrace of your favorite song.
