elevateDo you ever find yourself humming or whistling tunes to songs that you really hate?  I’ve found there can be a fine line between something you truly dislike and something you (sort of) enjoy.  I recently listened to this podcast with Alec Baldwin interviewing the-one-and-only Billy Joel.  The podcast is called “Here’s the Thing” – and you can find it on iTunes.  I recommend this listen if you’re a fan of either of the aforementioned people, or songwriters in general.  One of the biggest things I took away from it was Billy discussing that moment when he could really separate himself as a songwriter, a music fan, and a performer.  Where I’m going with this is making the suggestion of taking a new approach to how you hear music.  Challenging yourself to figure out what you truly love, what you can appreciate, what is not your thing, and what you truly can’t stand.  What you actually enjoy listening to, and what you get down to at the club, or work out to.  Maybe these are one in the same!  Maybe not.  I have gotten to a point in my life where I can separate what my ears find pleasing and what my mind and soul finds pleasing.

I think saying a song is a “guilty pleasure” is more telling than we initially realize.  Why is it guilty?  Because it would be embarrassing to admit that we like it?  Or because we know it’s not well written?  It might be the exact opposite, when you really break it down.  It might be SO well written, that you enjoy hearing it, even if it’s not something you’d ever consider purchasing (or een illegally downloading?  HOW lazy are we in 2013?).  This is where we need to learn to separate something that is pleasing to our ears, and something that is pleasing to our soul.  We’ve all heard or said something like, “I love everything except rap and country.”  Oh yeah? I bet that’s not true.  Open your ears and your heart, and let music in.  Pick and choose when you’re the one controlling the playlist.

Now listening to:  “Elevate” by St Lucia
