Alright, it’s no surprise that music has been an important part of the human species’ various cultures for thousands of years. Music has grown into such diverse forms since it’s first beginnings with our native tribes on Earth. Music takes on many forms, from national anthems, to war songs, to mainstream money making music, to sitting around the camp fire at night. Really, anything can be made into music if an individual wants it to be. Music has helped us through rough times, and helped us celebrate the good times. To some, it’s a beacon of hope, something to identify with. For this elderly gentlemen, it was a life changing experience. This video has gone viral in a matter of days, people sharing it all over social networks like Facebook, and Twitter. I have watched the video a few times myself, and each time I get this really joyful feeling for this man. As you will see in the video, this man was quite depressed and sad, did not talk much at all, and seemed overall just down. That is, until he heard the music. Watch the amazing change in his entire being after he hears some music from his era. Truly an awesome video, that really shows the power of music. I personally love music, mostly metal and rock, but other types too, including but not limited to, country, rap, hip hop, and even some reggae. A bit of everything really. I know one thing’s for sure, if I lived to be his age, and someone put some Metallica in my ears, I’d perk up quick too! Enjoy the video.
