I always find that I turn to music when I’m down or I’m stressed out, even though I’m not someone who constantly listens to music.
My favorite song that helps kick me out of a stressed out worry-wart funk is from Jesus Christ Superstar, Everything’s Alright.
The lyrics are just the right thing for me, especially the main Mary M stanzas.
Mary Magdalene:Try not to get worried, try not to turn on to<br />Problems that upset you, oh<br />Don’t you know<br />Everything’s alright, yes, everything’s fine<br />And we want you to sleep well tonight<br />Let the world turn without you tonight<br />If we try, we’ll get by<br />So forget all about us tonight
Apostles’ women:Everything’s alright, yes, everything’s alright, yes
Mary Magdalene:Sleep and I shall soothe you, calm you and anoint you<br />Myrrh for your hot forehead and<br />Then you’ll feel<br />Everything’s alright, yes, everything’s fine<br />And it’s cool and the ointment’s sweet<br />For the fire in your head and feet<br />Close your eyes, close your eyes<br />And relax, think of nothing tonight
Apostles’ women:<br />Everything’s alright, yes, everything’s alright, yes
Another big song that I go to all the time is Ordinary Day by Great Big Sea.
Never fails to pick up my mood!
Anyone have songs that they go to over & over to either get them out of a funk or put things in perspective?
