Music is powerful. It has the power to make us laugh, cry, dance, and drive faster. It also has the power to make us think, ask questions, and challenge authority. Music can take you back to an easier time in your life, or help you through the challenges you are facing right now. Music can be “of the moment” or “timeless,” but no matter what kind of music you enjoy, music can be healing and inspiring.
While most songs do tell a story of sorts, there are some that are truly a story set to music. These songs are referred to as narrative music and are equally as enjoyable as any short story you might pick up to read.
