Musical Therapy


Musical Monday is all about making friends and sharing the music that we love. The more the merrier! Diane at Good Mourning, Glory! is the official host of  Musical Monday, but I found out about it via Thom.

Somethin’s at the edge of your mind, you don’t know what it is
Somethin’ you were hopin’ to find but your not sure what it is
Then you hear the music and it all comes crystal clear
The music does the talkin’ says the things you want to hear

I’m young, I’m wild and I’m free
I got the magic power of the music in me

She climbs into bed, pull the covers overhead and turns her little radio on
She’s has a rotten day so she hopes the DJ’s gonna play her favorite song
It makes her feel much better, brings her closer to her dreams
A little magic power makes it better that it seems

She’s young now, she’s wild now, she wants to be free
She gets the magic power of the music in me

If you’re thinkin’ it over but you just can’t sort it out
Do you want someone to tell you what they think it’s all about
Are you the one and only who’s sad and lonely, reachin’ for the top
Well the music keeps you goin’ and it’s never gonna stop

The world is full of compromise, the infinite red tape
But the music’s got the magic, it’s your one chance for escape
So turn me on – turn me up – it’s your turn to dream
A little magic power makes it better than it seems


This song was musical therapy for me during my last 2 years of high school. I had just moved to a new city and had to start all over. The lyrics and the musical style spoke to me… and I admit, they still do!
