Sometimes it is not the song that makes you emotional, it is the people and things that came to mind when you were listening to the song.
Have you ever heard a song and wondered how much the songwriter knows about you? Music speaks to us through lyrics (well, including Carlos Santana’s guitar). There are moments that we listen to music that we love and would love to explain to people the kind of excitement or the relationship we have to the lyrics. Many people draw inspiration from music. Music also helps in connecting like minded people and people of a common interest. Just think about the online groups and pages of different music genres and how they have brought masses of people together. This is Life Stories In Lyrics way explaining some of the ways that lyrics speak out our lives.
Music is the language of the universe and what is music without lyrics? This site is about understanding and interpreting lyrics in ways that we experience in our daily existence. As lyric enthusiasts, we enjoy learning from lyrics and interpreting the thoughts of the songwriter when working on a project. Our interpretation of the lyrics might not reflect the meaning as that of the songwriter but how we as the audience are affected by or relate to the lyrics. Therefore our meaning of the lyrics is subjective because different people have different experiences to the lyrics.
The site is also intended to celebrate the genius in the song writers who have come to help explain our situations in a fun three and half minutes.
No matter how old the song is, the message in the lyrics does not age. Nothing under the sun is new, same experiences in the 50s/60s as today. The good thing about music is that it addresses timeless concerns. Or as Whitney Houston would say, Same Script different cast or the popular pop rock band of the early 2000’s, Bowling for Soup, High School never ends, meaning through song lyrics we get to relate with the people represented by the lyrics who lived before our time. For this reason we try to understand the genius of the lyricists who came before our time and inspired the current generation of lyricists who are always blessing us with their incisive lyrics. This website delves into the lyrics to different genres as long as the song lyrics have an impact or a message that relates to our life situations.
Therefore, if music is your kind of high, then this is the place to be.
'Life without playing music is inconceivable for me. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. … I get most joy in life out of music.' -Albert Einstein
