“We belong to the light, we belong to the thunder

“We belong to the light, we belong to the thunder

We belong to the sound of the words, we’ve both fallen under.”

This is a post about living under the influence. Not the influence of drugs or alcohol. Nooooo – something much more powerful. I’m talking about music and lyrics.

It doesn’t take a lot – a musical phrase, a rhythm – and the song has its way with us. It rushes through us, opening doors to emotions and memories. It messes with time – we go back to the first time we heard it. We remember the surroundings – the details. We are young again. Its all still in there. Music holds the keys.

Any songs like that for you?

“We Belong” – by Pat Benatar – written by Lowen and Navarro in 1984.
