Love is zing when it's the thing that makes us want to greet a new day. When we are energized and inspired to be at our creative best. There's not much better feeling than to be in love with someone who loves you back.
You may have heard the line lifted from a song or two, "Zing went the strings of my heart!". How many songs have been inspired by love? Happy songs, sad songs--actually probably a majority of songs. Love is music that fills us inside with lush orchestral strings in the heart or the plaintive sound of a lone voice in the night backed by a strumming guitar.
The language of music tells of so many stories, but love is the story that seems to capture us most of all. You can sing in the rain or sing on a train, but if the refrain is about love then ears perk up as others identify with the lyrics. Nearly all of us have been in love or are in love and even if we don't know the lyrics, they're easy to learn because we know the old story.
The zing of love has rung out as long as history can remember. And the zing will continue to sing!
Listen to the zing and revel in love. Enjoy the ride. The ups, the downs, and all that makes the world go around. If we have never loved, then we have never lived.
Do you like love songs? What are your favorite love songs? Have you ever written a song about love?
