I’ve read somewhere that music does wonders to the brain, and it even ‘repairs’ it. It also literally changes your physical brain — well, at least learning an instrument does. But I’ve noticed that I haven’t been listening to a lot of music recently. My usual morning radio show has changed a lot (I’m definitely becoming a member of #TitosOfManila) that I almost cannot relate to the new music. I listen to more retro stations now, but it’s never always the music I like.
Today, I tried to rekindle my fondness for classical music, but I wanted something other than Strauss and Beethoven but still relatable. Then, I remembered the Boston Pops Orchestra so I searched for any concert or playlist they may have online. I was not disappointed:
So now, it’s past 5pm, I’m putting it on full blast! Ok fine, not full blast, but it’s still pretty loud. I’m trying to wake up my sleeping braincells, OK? LOL! If they don’t wake up, at least I’m drowning out my other negative thoughts in positive, good music!
