The Power Of Music

The Power Of Music

What does a song do for you?

There is something about music, something I can’t put my finger on, that makes music so special. The many different genres allow for everyone to find something for them; it serves as an escape, a safe haven; it’s the way to a good morning or the best hype up for a night out with your friends. Whatever it is, music is still uniquely important in everybody’s lives. What is it for you? It is something that I genuinely wonder; what is it about music that makes people tick?

For me, it’s the way someone’s mood can instantly change from song to song; it’s how a single song can bring back that one memory that you so deeply cherish or remind you of that one person. Music is so strong it can invoke just about any feeling on a person and no one forces or questions it, it just happens.

It’s the way you can walk around with your earphones on and you have the luxury of your own personal mind bubble; you block out the world and, in return, it is just you in your mind with your favorite sounds enveloping your every thought. It’s your own personal bliss, even if it’s just for a couple of minutes. Maybe for someone it's not about listening to music, but actually playing it; being able to produce someone else's escape by playing that one instrument they adore. Whether it's the drums, a cello, or their voice, it still has the same effect.

Music is the haven you can look for when you feel like you have no one else to turn to. But that’s the beauty of it, I guess. For whatever reason music has a special place in your heart, I hope that you continue to cherish it the way that I do, that you get those concert/symphony/opera tickets, that you enjoy those events and I hope that those days become memories that later on get invoked by listening to that one song.

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7



On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
