Love Songs That We Hear and Sing

There are many songs that make us react when we hear just its melodies. The most captivating lyrics come from love songs that are performed by famous singers like Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Whitney Houston. These singers were proven to melt one’s heart by just starting to sing a love song.

But the most common reaction in hearing love songs is feeling sad with mixed feelings thereafter. I am not saying that this happens all the time. What I am trying to convey is the idea that if we listen to music particularly love songs, there are past events that makes us happy and sad that we automatically remember. I am referring to bittersweet memories that are kept sacred by time.

Some famous love songs that make us remember bittersweet memories include Through the Rain, It’s All Coming Back To Me Now, Loving Arms, Almost Over You, and even I Can’t Cry Hard Enough. These love songs are played in the radio always while music videos are visible in the entertainment channels too.

There are three things that I can say on this topic. First, love songs are the music of the heart when love is absent. Love can be absent because it is beyond our control. For instance, we have past relationships that we consider important in our lives but we cannot keep forever since it does not work. All we can do is to keep it within and when we hear any love song that fits our stories, our hearts listen to it. Second, music heals all wounds. Love songs are very powerful in changing one’s mood. We may forget the pain that we encountered in the past if we listen to love songs especially if we already moved on. And third, music is life. Music is part and parcel of life because it makes us complete. Without music, the cultivation of other artistic talents is rendered futile. Hence, music specifically love songs, are important in this life.

Music has a powerful ability to change my moods, for the better, and for the worse/sad. Your very right about music having the power to change things within ourselves. So, usually, I choose my music carefully. Some emotions I'd rather not relive~

Music reminds me so much about events in my life, most especially people who entered it. Most of them already gone and unheard about but the music that reminds me of them lives on.
