How does music affect your life? How has music been a part of your family? Do you listen to the music your kids listen to? Do they listen to your music?
#DadChat this week, Thursday December 22 at 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PST, will discuss music. “Music is God’s Drug” is a quote from Dennis Prager and that is the title of this week’s A Dad’s Point-of-View column, which is loosely the homework for this chat. Enjoy the Ten Best Xmas Songs list and feel free to comment on them or mention your favorites during the chat.
God’s drug is music – if God had a drug that is. Some of my best thinking is when I walk around the lake near our home. Often, I will listen to music. My taste is decidedly eclectic and recently I listened to the overture from The King and I and realized how I’ve grown to appreciate beautiful music more as I’ve aged in sharp contrast to my son’s love of angry rock ‘n’ roll. Yeah, I still love the music I grew up with but I now tend to appreciate more classical, standards, and even country. And, let’s face it music and love certainly go together well!
A Theory About Our Music Taste
I have a theory about the average person’s music taste. It is simply that it is formed during the decade or so from the teens to career and marriage. Obviously, that may be more than a decade but the idea remains the same regardless of the exact number of years.
