The Power of Music

A thought has been going through my head recently. It has been around the power of music. They say scent is one of the most powerful senses. For me hearing trumps all.

I hear a song such as Kylie Minogue’s “All The Lovers” and I am taken back to AIDS LifeCycle 2011. Or when I heard “Queer as Folk’s” theme “Cue the Pulse to Begin” and I think about college or study abroad in France.

In fact, if I need to decompress, all I need to do is put on some Kylie Minogue and go to spin at the gym. I sit in the spin class room by myself and listen to Kylie and ride.

What song takes you back or takes you forward? What music inspires you?
