Songs of my Heart

Songs of My Heart

Songs have always had the ability to carry me away to another time and place; almost giving a sense of euphoria as I get so lost in the emotions, the memories, the lyrics and the melody. There are some that stand out as being “songs of my life”, that can always bring me somewhere special. 

As I sit and listen to Pachebel’s Canon in D, I am lost in the moment. No matter where I am when I hear it, I am gone with it. I think that I was about 14-years-old when I first heard the beauty of the song and I longed to hear it time after time. I have come to call this my “life’s song” as it represents the joys and the struggles the playfulness and the sadness. I hear the phases of life when I listen to this song. 

My dad was a big fan of the Beatles, so thinking of which song brought the best memories back I remember him singing “When I’m 64” over and over. He’d ask if I’d care for him and love him still. I always said yes.. Sadly, he didn’t make it to that age, but I hold him and the many, many songs we sang together through the years, close to my heart.

There is a song based on the prayer of St Francis of Assisi. My favourite stage of my life certainly was that special time of middle school. We were a very tight-knit bunch of kids and funny enough, many of us have remained friends. We would sing this song in church as a grade and somewhere close to me is the wonderful man that I stand beside in the very same church singing the same song. 🙂

  1. Music always has the power to move our heart and, while some can be irritating to me, I enjoy so many kinds of music. It can evoke such emotion and memories. Too many have I lost so far in life, yet I’m thankful for the memories. Nice piece to stir me for the day.

      • hmmm, being a country boy, I seem to fall back on my roots.. If I were to think of my 3 favorites that leave me memories:

        1. Lady Antebellum – I need you now
        2. Three Dog Night – One
        3. Roberta Flack – Killing Me Softly

        • Awesome choices! I knew that you’d have good ones. Thinking of Roberta Flack’s song brought me back to my grandmothers big front lawn listening to mu new transistor radio. I was so proud of it, coloured red, white and blue.

  2. Music is amazing. As Beethoven said “If you hear a marching band, is your soul exalted? No, you march. If you hear a waltz, you dance. If you hear a mass, you take communion. It is the power of music to carry one directly into the mental state of the composer. The listener has no choice. It is like hypnotism.”
