Imagine all the people, living for today..... ooo ooo ooooooo.

I love the beatles, their lyrics inspire me so much. I love listening to a song and thinking how many people have listened to this song and throught different things. That is the most amazing thing about music, it has the power to do so many things. It has the power to change your mood, to make you cry, to make you happy, to think about things in a way you never have before, to bring you back to a certain place in time, to make you fall asleep, to do just about anything. Music is magic! That is what I would like to say... ARE THERE ANY SONGS THAT MOVE YOU??

Here is a playlist of songs that move me.

1. Rain Song - Led Zeppelin
2. Freddie Freeloader - Miles Davis
3. One Sweet World - Dave Matthews Band
4. Idioteque - Radio Head
5. Andalucia - Yo La Tengo
6. Beloved one - Ben Harper
7. Dream a little dream - Ella Fitzgerald
8. Dirt - Phish
9. Only living boy in New York - Simon & Garfunkel

All of these songs are so inspirational and so thoughtful. Download some of these songs if you want, or if not, listen to them for free and the apple store on itunes. You might just appreciate them!

I have a playlist of all these songs on my computer and I call the playlist "Brain Orgasm" that is a term a friend and I made up last here for that feeling you get when you are listening to a great song with the windows down in your car, driving around a lake late at night. Or the same feeling when you wake up and go for a walk outside and everything is still dewey and peaceful and quiet and it is so refreshing. The same feeling when you reach the top of a mountain, look down and see everything underneath you. You can get a "brain orgasm" even from sharing a special moment with someone important to you, or laughing for hours. This is my version of religion - beauty.

TODAY IS A DAY FOR BEAUTY!!!

Now go out and find some!!

*Love*
Vanessa
