Sesame Street - Leader of the Pack
I love music and I always have. I was 3 in this picture and while I don't remember the exact time that this picture was taken, I recall many times during this age before and after listening to records and I've never really stopped. I had a lot of them that all came in a box, maybe 10 45's. Of them "Leader of the Pack" was my favorite because, as I understand it now, it was a cohesive song, had a little guitar and was structured well enough to suite what I would come to love just a couple of years after this picture was taken...Rock. Grow out of it they said....ha!
I see Music in shapes and movement. I also see music in almost the form of a music video but using the backdrop of my life. It's always been that way and I was struck particularly hard when I discovered as a kid that others don't seem to see it the same way I do. I know now that millions of people do but growing up it was a hard sell. My thoughts and emotions move with music, not in an influential way (sorry Mom ha ha) but music is able to adhere to what I am feeling and shape into a sort of musical instrument which plays along. This is why it has always been so therapeutic, it draws out the thought and brings it to a conclusion by allowing the senses to work naturally. Music cannot heal but it can be a band-aid for a wound and through familiarity we do tend to become attached to it.
Life long fan, I remember being younger than the 3 year old I am in the picture and trying to play my Dad's records on the turntable and breaking his needle. I'm very sorry about that, I just wanted the sounds created by a needle moving thousands of times a second and making the records come alive.
