Music I live by – Welcome to my little record store

There are some songs that accompany my life like a personal soundtrack. Some moments only become as special as they are, when you add music, almost like in a movie. An instant of unreal beauty in everyday life. Welcome to my little record store, where I share with you the music I live by and  all the recommendations are for free. 

I often work in Cafés and I like hang out with friends there. My newest discovery fits that laid back café atmosphere, it’s a special production from Israel called Shanti. This enchanting melody soothes me and puts dreamy pictures of the dessert in my head. If I need a break during the day or a song to unwind in the evening, Shanti (שאנטי) is my go to choice.

Feelings and Music

Music is so powerful, it can easily alter my mood. I noticed that, when I listend too much to sad songs and as a result I felt really low. For this reason, I am careful to only emphasize emotions with music that I really want to cherish.

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by love and gratefulness for all the people that make my life special. Mostly these sentiments overcome me when I sit in my armchair by myself and ponder about the beautiful things that keep happening to me. This is the right moment for All of Me – John Legend.

Inspiring tunes

Music greatly influences my writing, but I feel that I have to be precise with my choice, as a song might divert my attention from the topic I want to focus on. To keep my concentration and still enjoy the stimulating energy of music, I choose low key trip hop music like Massive Attack. I find that their album Mezzanine is perfect for my work flow, the soothing beat helps me stop thinking too much and just get into a flow of creativity.

    Thanks for your post. I can recommend Dexter Britain. It is the perfect sound for quiet hours when I am wondering about the world and it is also nice as background music for a good read or when I write letters. 🙂

    I appreciate your insight into the effect of music. It’s an important truth that music can easily create mental states.
