GREAT Monday morning, ladies and gentlemen!
Each and every one of us has heard a song or two and wondered why anyone would think it’s good music. And we’ve probably already convinced ourselves that it’s actually not good music. We look at certain people listening and singing along to the songs and wonder if they have any clue as to the meanings, relevance, or impact of the things that they are repeating. I’ve been asked. I’ve wondered. And the thought that always comes to mind is an interview with a former NFL running back that I watched long ago. He quoted his mother, saying that she always told him he had to be able to, ”You have to be able to separate the music from the message.” That has stuck with me for nearly 15 years.
