My Semicharmed Musical Life

with one comment

Now, I know that some people will say that they constantly have music playing in their head and just burst out into random song all the time. However, the majority of these people are playing in the minor league compared to myself and others that surround me. Why? It’s because our lives tend to be overly musical at times (well, overly musical to normal people hence forth to be referred to as “normies”).

At any given time during the day whether wandering from my car to class, in class, at the tutoring center I work at, or at any number of businesses that are in our small town, I might burst out into song. Let me tell you it is a fun and exciting thing to do because it breaks up the monotony of my day. It helps me have a more bright and sunshiny day, and I hope that others around me feel the same way. There’s just something about it that is very freeing…if you’re free to sing in random places, to me it says that you have self-confidence and that you throughly enjoy music. Music to me is meant to be experienced in many ways. Whether it’s singing with a choir or breaking out with “The Phantom of the Opera” at Wal-Mart, it makes me happy.

Now, another thing I will say, having an “I don’t care what others think” attitude is good if you do sing in public places because sometimes the songs floating through your head that come out might be a little risqué. One day, I was walking through Wal-Mart when I burst out in the song “Sweet Transvestite” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Nothing will get you more looks than this in rural Tennessee or if you start singing Evita in a room full of Argentinians.  It can make you feel awkward, but at the same time, I just roll with it. I don’t make excuses as to why I do it. So, now, most people accept it and even joke about it.

I am a living musical….all genres come into play: country, pop, rock, musicals, r&b, etc. I am a treasure trove of random music across generational gaps and other barriers. I love my music and wish to share it with the world. If the world isn’t ready for it, they still “can’t take that away from me”. So, people you can love my nuances or just “beat it”.
