Music

It's such a personal thing, isn't it?
Music?

I grew up listening to a lot of different music. Opera believe it or not.
60's and 70's.
Popular music.
Motown.

And today. No different. We have music on all the time.

I still love all that, that "takes me back".
And I can say my taste encompasses a wide variety,
but not all types of music.

I even admit to enjoying a little
Flo Rida every once in a while, Yo.
I mean, who doesn't?

Now my obsession love for Seal started when Bill and I met.
The words to his songs have very deep meanings
and that really plays a key part
in why I
act like a teenager and rush the stage just so I can
touch him each and every concert I go to
really enjoy listening to his music
constantly.

Which brings me to my new favorite song,
which is not Seal......

.....or Daughtry

..........or Justin Timberlake

.......no, no....none of those hunky solo artists

but Nickelback - these hunks of rock n roll

They have a new song out called


IF TODAY WAS YOUR LAST DAY

I've have written the lyrics. They are Powerful.
They are Stop and Think.
They are Meaningful.
To me, they are Awesome.

If you don't know the song, do yourself a favor,
go to iTunes and spend the buck twenty nine and download it.
Now I know it is not talking about drinking too much and doing things you regret,
or kissing someone through the phone cause you're probably in jail,
or blaming it on the alcohol, whatever "it" is.....
so you might want to stop reading right now.


My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?

Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day
If today was your last day

Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin' stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side

If today was your last day and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?

Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

Man I love this song.
