Besides being with those that I love the most, I think the source of inspiration that is most deep for me is music. Some musical pieces, whether with words or not, touch my soul in such a deep place that it is hard to describe. There is a spirit sense to what those songs say to me in my times of happiness, despair, loneliness, and connection. Music can sometimes enable me to say what is in heart, when the words fail me.
There is a contemporary band that speaks to me in a way that no other band does, not since my favorite band. My favorite band of all time is the Beatles. Not just because they were fun to watch, and because of their possession of terrific melodies and harmonies, but the words. The words that spoke so deeply to me, and for me, and struck a chord deeply in no other way.
Now, I have finally heard a new group that speaks to me in the same way. Coldplay. It is hard to put into my own words how intensely they impact me with their harmonies, instrumentals, lyrics and voices. They don’t speak of day to day events as much as they soul speak, enough said.
When I listen to them, I feel a lump growing in my throat. It is hard to think, without swimming in the reality that they paint for me. I get lost in them. I get lost in their message.
To me, that is true music. True inspiration. True soul speak.
