Living inside a song

Living in Music



Full Details


Imagine, dear writers, that you could somehow live or exist inside a piece of music. What song or composition would you choose?

In a short reflection, tell us about your choice. Why, of all the thousands of anthems, tunes, melodies, and chants did you choose this one? Perhaps you are drawn to a particular piece of music for the story it tells, or the mood it creates. Perhaps this music is a source of escape—a portal into another world, or perhaps it helps you to better understand or reflect on your own world or life.

Whatever music you choose, tell us why this alternate reality is one that you would like to step into for a while... Feel free to experiment with incorporating lyrics and/or notes.
