I cant imagine my life without music. As far back as i can recall music has been apart of my life during happy and sad times.Music has the amazing ability to transport to a moment in time and remind us of a once special person and the way we felt then bitters sweet memories I call them.
I clearly recall in High school in the 90’s we would make mix tape of love songs for a loved one. And then the digital age moved on and we started geting CD’s with better quality sound and then we started making mixed CD’s. A couple months ago I watched a great movie on Dstv called Textuality. This movie was a great example of Technology in our lives . The central theme of the movie was how people conduct relationships on their phones with BBM and emails. There is a romantic undertone in the movie which is fresh and intriguing. A conversation between 2 guy friends in the movie on how to win back a girl was hysterical especially when the friend suggests making a mixtape to which the other one replies that is so 80’s so hence they come up with the idea of a mix USB( someone still owes me 1). i thought what a totally genuis idea so uptodate with technology ! I recommend you watch this movie if you are in love with technology and seem to manage all your relationships via technology lol.
So in keeping with the music theme , I tend to make up music playlists on my phone each one different depending on my mood. How amazing is this option a list of songs from different artists all on one playlist ! makes me feel like i am a DJ.This is such an easy way to carry music around instead of tons of CDS.
I have decided to share one of my playlists with you today.I believe every song has a meaning and often tells a person what we are too afraid to tell them .
My playlist is dedicated to Mr X .I met him earlier this year in March at teh 80’s concert .He immediately caught my attention as he was very friendly and seemed to have an interesting personality. I must admit i was intrigued by him. When Rick Astley came on and i saw him singing his heart out I KNEW instantly I wanted to get to know him .He is like no other guy I have met in South Africa since coming back from London he is interesting , intriguing and we have alot in common. But he is a very damaged soul from a past relationship which has left him very unsure about relationships. I just wish at times I could wave my magic wand and make him whole again so he can feel love again and learn to trust .So Mr X and I started to get to know each other very much similair to the movie Textuality, he would often randomly sent me songs which i believed was his way of telling me his story or letting me in……….So this playlist is dedicated to Mr X , I know i aint your type and you no longer speak to me , but i think you are amazing a breathe of fresh air. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to know you and get a glimpse of your wonderful soul……….
