These are trying times indeed. The COVID-19 pandemic weighs heavy on all of our minds and continues to test our strengths. Many of us are deeply concerned while others are hurting in numerous ways. Here's a few recently released songs that will cheer you up and help you defeat this little micro nuisance invading our world.
Music Joins in the Fight
This is a good opportunity to illustrate the different purposes of music and song and how it is used in relationship to our real lives. Despite both songs dwelling on the same topic, the style of each tune is completely different. One in Country and one in Hard Rock, both songs carry the same idea but have a near opposite outlook. Music also relates to us as we to music.
Music can carry most any meaning or purpose the composer wishes to portray. The performer gets the message across to the listeners. Both song examples do an excellent job of pulling it off. Left: Big & Rich perform 'Stay Home.'
As always, music carries a special meaning for each listener and they look to certain performers for a particular style of music or message. Music has a way of treating or even curing many of our ailments in life. If only music could cure a disease like COVID-19 so easily.
Musicalhelp.org cannot at this time recommend any help resources for your concerns about the COVID-19 virus. To be frank, we simply do not trust the current authorities or the many medical or legal compliance factors. Compliance should be that last of your worries when it comes to your health and well being. Honestly, I believe the entire coronavirus fiasco to be no more than a political and corporate plot to gain control and steal trillions of dollars from the American people.
Music and Illness
Sadly friends, music can't yet cure a virus such as COVID-19, but it certainly can help in the treatment of illness. Music can literally make you feel better. Music soothes the soul, stirs the spirit, offers up an appreciation of one of life's most important characteristics, our ability to feel and express.
I've seen music cure illness. I've been cured by music too. Music is great at curing unhappiness. It can instill hope, comfort the trembling, even save lives. "Music certainly does tame the savage beast." Who knows? Maybe one day we can use it to cure the body. Studies have been underway for quite some time to find that out. Don't forget that sound can be both a tool and a weapon. Left: Mike Campbell performs 'Lockdown.'
Please do your best to keep you and your family safe during this pandemic. Try not to let it get you down. But if it does, just remember that the music and musicians are here for you too. We want to make you feel better. We want you to be well and continue enjoying and using music as a favored and preferred part of your lives.
