musical survey


this is another entry for me that will be finished another time, but I wanted the raw material out of the scribble files because it's easier to keep track of this way...




this entry started as an idea for a survey and soon became a long questionnaire and is turning into meme, a musical meme (and I've put a cork in expanding it further for now because it could expand infinitely in my mind)...


I'm always hearing music in my mind
sometimes sounds seem to become a song
it might not be music to your mind
but my calling it music is not wrong

for I can feel the sound of emotions
I can hear the sound of my heart
and the words are not always needed
but they feel so good when they start
to find their part
to express my heart
and connect the music in my mind
all the rhymes and reasons I find

in this life
we need a way of getting by
of expressing ourselves
and embracing each other
whether near or far away
we must find a way to say
what we think and feel
to start to make it real

in this life
people come and people go
and what remains for us
is left for us to show
in all we can do
and all we can know
let the music of your mind
put on a show, let it flow
so your reasons and rhymes can show
so you become some one some one can know

this is philosophy
about the way we feel
and in the melody
for me it becomes real

a musical survey

Realizing that favorites change with mood and over the course of a lifetime, try to come up with the best song that answers the questions below - the one right answer for you. Some questions ask for two answers. If the same song answers more than one question, that's ok. If you have several answers for some questions, list them all. Feel free to explain why if you're in the mood to talk music. If you feel inspired, take this survey as a meme for your diary. Let me know where it is so I can read it too.
