sing a song

whenever you sing a song or listen to music
it activates several areas of your brain
not just one music area

thats why its recommended that people listen
to music every day
over years it keeps those multiple areas of the brain
which may stave off the progression of alzheimers disease
it makes you relax and feel good

now when i was working i use to listen on earphones to
classical music music like nora jones and willie nelson singing
while i was taking my lunch break and doing my end of the
day charting and responding to messages and refill request

i found it relaxed me and allowed me to unwind at the
end of the day

when i was younger i listened to music on the radio and cds
now ive noticed i dont listen to music hardly ever
when i am driving
i listen to npr or sports talk or talk radio or i dont even
have anything on
i call it my moment of meditation as im driving
a moment of zen like when i work in the garden

Image result for the voice
what i have done is become a big fan of the voice
heck i didnt know who adam or gwen were until
i watched the voice
of course i knew who blake was and pharrell was

ive also been exposed over the last 3 years to a lot
of music i would not have listened to or ever heard of

so im glad im tuned in now

plus my listening to the voice and the music
may be helping slow down things in my brain
i hope so anyway
at least thats the excuse i give to my wife she whenever
i want to listened to the voice

so i have been a pretty good predictor of who gets in
the final group
even who will win it all
this year the winner is easy to choose
heck last week he was number one on itunes
ahead of adele
thats saying something to be ahead of her
he had another song in the top 10 list
Image result for jordan smith the voice
that of course is
jordan smith
the new male adele

then i guess besides him
my favorite is the little dolly parton singer
emily ann
now thats a good country southern name isnt it

whether she wins or not
she will probably be a successful country singer
real successful one

Image result for amy the voice
the one i liked from the beginning was amy
her soulful nora jones voice
i could listen to all day

Image result for madi the voice
one thing im amazed at is the talent of the teenagers
on this years final group
one madi is probably one of the most talented of the group
writing her own songs producing her own songs
singing them
her last song on monday she seemed like a movie star
singing in a movie
real talent there

so i guess ill keep using the voice for my music exposure
i like meditating a lot when im busy driving or working outside
so watching the voice is the only time i get to
activate all those different parts of my brain
thats not busy

sing a song
its good for you
listen to one
