Oldies Goodies by Frshta Mangal

Quote of the day: “There are those who give joy, and that joy is their reward” – Kahlil Gibran.

I spend a lot of time driving because of my delivery job. Therefore, I spend a lot of time in my car. I like driving but the car rides can become repetitive and boring. Sometimes I am lucky enough to talk on the phone, but usually, it is just me, myself, and I. I am not a huge music person anymore. I was when I was younger, but now I listen to the same things over and over again. I have music fatigue. I am tired of the music choices therefore I end up listening to the news, which I don’t mind.

Luckily, I found a new station! It was called “oldies and goodies.” I listened to “Someday, when it’s cold outside,” “Dancing in the moonlight,” and “Sherry.” I noticed a common theme in these songs and I noticed how these songs made me feel.

Love and romance was the theme in these songs but that might be the theme to a lot of songs. Yet, it was different. It made me feel good and uplifted. I felt loved and yearned for an era that love conquered all. A time where love was sincere and real.

I think the world needs love like the love in those songs. If I was a successful creator then I would create content that promotes romance and love. The world needs love.

So, if you are feeling the blues, listen to some oldies goodies. Let it run your imagination into another time and another world. Let the positive synergy run through your blood and your soul.
