My Music; Expressing Deep Emotions

Musicals, such as South Pacific, display a range of emotions best expressed in song.

I don’t like going to musicals, but once there I’m hooked.

I like reality and musicals interrupt reality by breaking into a song. That doesn’t happen in real life or does it?

Have you ever felt so good you just want to sing. I have a friend who whistles a lot. What is in his head that triggers a melody? It’s got to be something good. Music brings out our emotions. Sometimes  we live a musical without really knowing it.

Many years ago at work a coworker was having a difficult time explaining something to me. “It’s too hard to put into words.”

“Than can you express it in music,” I said joking.

He smiled and walked away.

Later he approached me and started singing to the tune of There’s Nothing Like a Dame from South Pacific.

“Don’t you know I hate my boss,

More than anything in the world.

Don’t you know I hate my boss

And makes me want to hurl.”

What can’t be expressed in words, because the true emotion is lacking, can be expressed in song.
