“LEGITIMATELY” : An Educational Song About Rape and the GOP

In years of musical theatre training, the best lesson I have learned, relevant to both theatre and life, is “When emotions are too big to speak, you sing.” Like many others, the behavior from the GOP brings up a lot of emotions for me from disgust, to sadness, judgement, and disbelief. Not only do I turn to song in times of high emotion- this might be helpful for the little daughters of the current republicans. Learn to use that magical uterus now, girls. http://youtu.be/jeag_1EoQKA This song is largely based on the actions and opinions of the GOP, from Senate...

The Soundtrack to Your Divorce: How Music Can Help During a Separation

Music is a powerful medium. It can trigger emotions and bring back memories, causing both laughter and tears. The power behind music is one of the reasons that it can be so useful during stressful times, such as when you are getting divorced. It can help you relive the good times, mull over the bad times and release emotions you’d otherwise bottle up. Music has the power to console you through all the stages of a divorce.   Transfer Your Emotions Tracks such as Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Go Your Own Way’ or Alanis Morrisette’s ‘You Oughta Know’ have lyrics raw with emotion that you can transfer to your ex-partner, either with regret or anger depending on how you feel at the time of listening. That’s another of music’s effects: at different times it has different meanings and the lyrics deliver new messages.   Even the sound of the music, whether it’s soft and sensual or loud with a driving beat can help to channel the strong emotions felt during a divorce. Songs such as ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by Joy Division or ‘Crown of Love’ by Arcade Fire provide a connection to the rest of humanity and prove that others have also felt the heartache of broken relationships and loves lost. While family law solicitors in Leeds and other cities can give you the practical advice and guidance you...
