Hearing music with your heart

Ever since my interview with Natalie Lloyd where she talked about hearing a song for the first time with your heart before your ears, I have become much more attuned to this idea. Music has always had such a deep impact on my life. There's nothing like that moment of hearing a song for the first time that you absolutely love.

I just had that experience as I was listening to Ingrid Michaelson's new album Lights Out when the song "Over You" came on. I was bouncing back and forth between windows on my computer when about midway through this song, I just had to stop and listen because I was so moved. It wasn't even about the words. It was the melody, vocal harmonies, and the arrangement. Music really is feeling personified through sound. So, my question to you is, what songs did you hear for the first time with your heart before your ears? I've talked about heartprint books before. Now I want to know your heartprint songs.

  1. Ingrid Michaelson is brilliant. I love her. My daughter and I play a few of her songs together on the piano, it never gets old.
