Music Made Me Do It, Sol Republic Punk and Tracks Giveaway #MMDI


Music has always been a huge part of my life because of the emotional pull it has. Like a time machine, a song can pull us back to that special moment in our lives when we heard it playing. Music expresses what we often fail to put into a words; our deepest raw emotions. Music can also be our friend to get us through rough times or to inspire us to do great, and sometimes not so great, things.

Music made me name my youngest daughter, Rose for the song made famous by Bette Midler.

Music made Rose and I get the word "Imagine" tattooed on our wrists for the John Lennon song, and as a reminder of all the great possibilities our future holds if we can only imagine.

Music also made us take a trip to Central Park in NYC to visit the John Lennon Memorial together. We made the trip to celebrate. You see, Rose struggled with depression after being bullied. Getting through school was a battle for her, but she graduated High School, and it was the promise of the NYC trip that helped motivate her. She made it through a tough time and deserved to celebrate, so we went to NYC, and to Strawberry Fields. It is a memory of a special time shared with my daughter because Music Made Me Do It.

  1. I'm usually quite shy but music brings me out of my shell. When I go out dancing I sing along and dance like I'm all alone.

    1. I'm the same way. I can't help but dance when I hear a good song, and it doesn't matter to me if anyone wants to dance along. Good luck to you!

  3. There is not one day that goes by without me listening to Music.

    Music made me understand my emotions better than I could explain through words.

    Music made me have the ability to smile when I know I should be crying.

    Music made me silence the world, escape the state of depression and lick old wounds of the past.

    Truth be told, Music made me who I am today.

  31. Music made me swallow my pride and get up on the stage to sing with my daughter. She LOVES to sing, and she's very good at it. I love music, but good gravy, I can't sing. It meant a lot to her though, and she means a lot to me, so on the stage I went. The song I selected was a good one that would showcase her voice, and make mine minimal. The Music Made Me Do It. #MMMDI
