Take a Sad Song…

Posted: August 6, 2018 in Uncategorized
Once upon a time a Knight and a Poet gave the world some sage advice.
He wrote (and sang): “Take a sad song and make it better.”
Paul McCartney wrote Hey Jude to comfort John Lennon’s son Julian during the divorce of his parents.
One of the greatest rock ballads ever was written to help a five year old boy get through a very tough time.
In the mixtape of our lives, we will listen to some sad music.
How do we take those sad songs and make them better?
Maybe we need to find a different rhythm.
Maybe we need to change keys, change a major or minor key. Change the way we play. Change our perspective.
Maybe we need to change a few of the lyrics…Change nope into hope. Change scheme into dream. Change busted into trusted.
And for heavens sake, we shouldn’t sing a solo!
Life is meant to be a sing-along!
Find someone who will sing with you. (Even if it’s your dog!!)
Then don’t hold back!
Sing LOUD!!
Do all the hand gestures.
Invite some other voices.
Take a sad song and make it better.
C’MON!! Sing it with me…
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
