Music Feeds the Soul... Sometimes

Dear Charlie,

Have you ever just listened to a song and thought about what it means? Sure, some songs you don't really want to look deeper into (*ahem* Hey, Soul Sister), but there are some songs that actually mean more than their catchy tune.

Bad Day by Daniel Powter can be a good example, it sounds like it's about, well, a Bad Day, but it's also about being there for someone even if they say they don't want help. It's about someone wanting to help, but being at a loss for what to do.

Haven't Met You Yet by Michael Buble (I can't do that accent mark on the 'e') isn't just about wishing for someone to pop into his life, it's about him promising to be the best person he can be for this girl, even if he hasn't met her yet.

Heck, maybe I'm completely off on my translations of these songs. Maybe when Daniel Powter wrote Bad Day it was only about a bad day, or maybe even something completely different. But when I hear these songs, this is what I see in them.


P.S. Thanks to my mom, 5thsister, I've gotten so many amazing followers! Thanks for the awesome comments, guys, and thanks for reading!

  1. I, personally, think that a song is meant to be interpreted by the listner. Sure, some songs are no deeper than the paper that they were written on...but some...SOME reach into you and grab your heart and pluck your soul and make it sing, too!!!

    (That's the best kind, in my opinion!!!)
