There's probably some poor soul somewhere who isn't affected by music at all; thank God it's not me.
I don't play any instruments, my singing is beloved only by my wife and a few church ladies, but music has always been important to me.
These songs, for one reason or another, shaped my interests, my beliefs, and me, over the years.
I first heard this song at the age of nine, and it gave me the creeps. I didn't hear it again until I was eighteen, but by then, its subject had led me into an interest in similar things that continues to this day.
I saw this film, heard this song, in '68; I was twelve, and watching the world around me turn strange.
Four years later, I was in love for the first time, and this song seemed to confirm that all was right with the world.
I heard this song for the first time the same week that first romance ended.
This song has uplifted me, even saved my life a couple times.
This song is for all the special ladies over the years....thank you.
This song is for me, and the one special one who sits beside me.
For the One Who has brought it all to pass, and holds our future....
