A Musical Journey

August 2015 From The Editor turntableWhile a good air conditioner is crucial to survive the hot days of August, music is just as important in creating the cool vibe associated with summer. I find that setting aside some time to watch and listen to music is the perfect vehicle to refuel my energy level and increase productivity.  It provides me a feeling of freedom and takes me to my “happy place.”

Thanks to the never ending collection of YouTube videos, songs from many of my all-time favorite albums, cassettes or cds are literally a click away. Even more exciting are the vast array of concert videos uploaded. Here I get to enjoy versions of songs I have never seen or heard before. I may begin with one tune by a certain artist but after noticing other choices listed along the side, I veer off in an entirely different direction. It is like traveling without a map, letting go and just seeing where the road takes me. I look for albums I haven’t thought about for decades and try pairing artists together for potential duets. The possibilities are endless.

So instead of complaining about the massive heat wave outside, I think I will pour myself a tall glass of iced tea and let Linda Rondstadt’s version of “Heat Wave” take me away.
