Pearls of Wisdom: Where Music Meets Life Advice
FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song. I'm a parent of a teenager who wants little to do with my life lessons, philosophical nuggets, or pearls of wisdom. As a teen, she doesn't want to hear about what anyone learned from their mistake. Right now, she's too busy texting with friends and listening to music. But this mother is creative and won't be easily dissuaded. So if a direct approach doesn't work, I'll let the music speak on my behalf. Here is a list of diverse songs that offer memorable tidbits on how to live a better life. Make your own Life Advice playlist and enjoy listening to the enduring lessons that life has to teach, compliments of pop, rock, and country music. Youth is filled with limitless optimism, the feeling that you can achieve anything, be anybody if you just try hard enough.
1. "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones
Some unfairly view pop merely as fluff music, something light and irreverent and fun to dance to. And while there's plenty of pop music that's been perfectly primed for the dance floor which, by the way, there's nothing wrong with! As widely listened to as it is, pop music can be used as vessel for change, a tool for discourse on social issues. There are numerous pop songs — including more than a handful of well-known singles — that tackle social, political, and cultural issues as diverse as racism, feminism, police brutality, LGBT representation, and much more.
A connection has long been made between music and moral education. Recent discussions have focused on concerns that certain lyrics can lead to acceptance of violence, suicide, inappropriate views of women, and other unethical behaviour. Debate over whether such connections exist at least illustrates that popular songs engage listeners with ethical issues; this arises from the unique blend of emotional and cognitive reactions to music.
