It all amounts to nothing in the end

If there is one thing that I hate about music (and I love music), it’s the fact that no one else can ever truly experience a song the way that you do. You can feel somewhat of an emotional connection to the singer or songwriter or musician…but the song is a different experience for each person who performs it or hears it.

There are so many intangible things that a song can make you feel, but it’s like there is no true way to possibly express those feelings to another individual…or there is no true way of knowing that the song makes them feel the same way.

One song can be a unique world that can only ever be explored by one person at a time. I would like to say that as typically social creatures, people should be able to share these things…and I guess in a superficial way we do/we claim to….but no one else can ever really know what goes on between one person and a song.

It just sucks because certain songs can take you to really amazing places…places no one else can ever truly go. I guess just idolizing whoever made the song(s) will have to suffice….

    Ashley, I know what you mean. But isn’t it also really cool that everyone experiences a song completely differently?! Like the way you feel about a song is so unique.
