The whole thing got me thinking about how songs affect my attitude at the moment I listen to them.
"Eye of the Tiger" really amps me up. Makes me wanna take up boxing or just go kick ass at something I want to be successful at.
"Remember the Name" by Fort Minor kinda has the same affect but really makes me do something athletic. (As athletic as I can, he he)
"Austin" by Blake Shelton makes me feel like I should make attempts to be more romantic with my wife.
"Playboys of the Southwestern World" by Blake Shelton really makes me think back about silly things I did with my friends in the past. "My Hometown" by Charlie Robison has the same affect. Great "MEMORY SONGS!!"
"Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis was incredibly popular when we went to Grand Cayman island so every single time I hear it I lose all focus and my mind goes back to the incredible time we had deep sea fishing there.
"Seven Spanish Angels" by Willie Nelson and Ray Charles may be the greatest love story song of all time and it makes me wonder just who all in the world is that important to me and how many people feel that way about me.
"Love Lock down" by Kanye West was the song they played at the end of the last Victorias Secret fashion show on CBS so, well, I pretty much lose focus when it comes on too.
"Old Silver" is a song by Radney Foster that is one of the greatest songs ever written. It makes me wanna live my life so that someone misses me when I am gone.
"Blue Jeans and a Rosary" by Kid Rock is another incredible love song that just makes me really think about my better half and all the quirks I have that she puts up with and all the things I love about her.
"Toes" by Zac Brown Band just makes me smile and wanna be on a beach with a no worries.
There's a ton more songs that have very distinct and direct affects on me the instant I hear them. But my thumbs hurt from typing on my BlackBerry, so...
I would love to hear some examples of how music affects you?
