The Medicine Cabinet #7

Music Is My Medicine
by Nayt Housman

Music is my medicine. Is it yours? I ask the public six golden questions to find out if and how they use music to feed the soul.

 Enire by Nayt Housman

Like any man of the 21st century, I’m an aficionado of social media and as such, I have a few acquaintances from various parts of the world that I have become cyber friends with. NERD ALERT! So why not rope one into my clinic to do a bit of scientific music medicinal research? My delightful patient today is the enigmatic and energetic 26 year old Enrie from Italy, who’s life passion is fashion, travelling and MUSIC!

Who flicks your switch and turns up the volume?

Enrie: Tiny girls with BIG guitars. It could be either a rocking Alanis Morissette  or Courntey Love, but also pop oriented singers like Michelle Branch and Taylor Swift. Music is feminine and singular to me.

Why are they the pills that cure your ills?

Enrie: I think that music gives a name, shape and words to unexpressed feelings inside of me. It’s like she (music) knows better! Music doesn’t ask, she just gives you answers!

What kind of high does it give you?

Enrie: Ecstasy. Relief. Peace.

When do you find yourself craving musical relief?

Enrie: Especially when I’m very angry or very sad. Music can be very cathartic, a pretty good companion. Haha I feel like I sound like an emo bimbo, cutting her veins to the last Evanescence album LOL.

Where does music take you?

Enrie: DAMN these questions are difficult! To a place that is my own, where I can take my time to think or not think at all. It depends on my mood I guess.

How do you share your music love?

Enrie: By singing and dancing to it!!!!

Music is a powerful woman. She can be your mother, your best friend, your aunt or your uncle. Oh wait…no, no…actually YES, I guess she can be your uncle too. She can simply be a good companion. That person who is always there when you’re in need a figurative shoulder to cry on or to laugh on, and always has some good advice for whatever situation you may find yourself in.

I shall dub this ‘The Diva Affect’. One of my fave karaoke tracks so wisely states; “any time you need a friend, I will be here, never be alone again, so don’t you fear, even if you’re miles away, I’m by your side, so don’t you ever be lonely, love will make it alright.” Yeah sing it gurrrl…

Doctor Nayt’s prescription is to firstly realize, you’re never alone. Baby, Lady Music has always got your back. So when the days are all blending into one and the light at the end of the tunnel has gone; STOP, collaborate and listen. There’s a diva out there who can bring back your glisten. Shine, shine, listen to the rhyme, rhyme and the wise words within is where life begins. The mother divas of the music world have the power and magic to reverse the bland and tragic. Have a dose.
