As long as I can remember, music has played a big part in my emotional health. I spent alone hours upon hours in my room listening to AM radio, vinyl 45s and albums, and later, FM radio.
Music gave me hope and helped me feel less alone. You can read more about my music memories in my Soul Music series beginning here. If you like scientific studies on the power of music, read this article.
Anyway, when I began thinking about quotes on feelings, my mind began thinking about song lyrics. But, I want to respect the copyrights of all songwriters, so I won’t be posting any lyrics here. My quotes relate to the feelings that music invokes or the impact of music on us emotionally.
After the quotes, you will find links to my mix tape of favorite memory-inducing songs.
Let us find a good musician to play the harp whenever the tormenting spirit troubles you. He will play soothing music, and you will soon be well again.1 Samuel 16:16
