Good Music

I am enjoying Michael Buble's songs just now.  While I like most of his songs, I particularly like Feeling Good and Moondance. As crazy as it sounds, the way I enjoy music is listening to the same song over and over until my wife kicks me. That's about ten times or so depending on her mood.

Why do I listen to a same song over and over? Because I see a movie of my own making when I do that. With Feeling Good, I saw a movie about an autistic middle-aged man who spent most of his entire like listening to jazz music in his room. One day, he finds himself in a jazz club and starts mumbling to songs. His uncle asks the band to play his favorite song, Feeling Good. He starts singing, meekly at first with his face down but when the turn comes, the Feel Good part, he looks up, smiles, and then let's all go.

Too bad there aren't many movies with such uplifting moments. With vivid imagination, books are better than movies but music is even better.

Oh, yeah.  The best part of that song is:

Dragonfly out in the sun
  you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun
  you know what I mean
