When I told my husband, Mark, I planned to write about music, he burst into song, “Put another nickel in, in the nickelodeon, all I want is loving you and music, music, music!”
How many of us recognize that song? Can you sing along? We may not remember what a nickelodeon is or even a nickel, but music stays with us.
We need music from the moment we’re born until the moment we die. And not just listening to it, although that’s wonderful. We need to be singing, playing the clarinet or the castanets. We need to be dancing to it.
