"There ain't no mountain high enough..." - Marvin Gaye
Music has the power to uplift and motivate the human spirit to unknown heights and powers. Yet less than 4% of the world's population can play an instrument.
Yamaha, a leader in musical instruments, conducted a study in 2001 that found playing the drum had a positive effect on immune response. The idea that music can affect health and behavior is at least as old as the writings of Plato and Aristotle. In fact, the first music therapy program was founded in 1944 at Michigan State and is so well respected today that even the federal government identifies it as a Medicare reimbursable expense.
And while most people's music downloads are not covered by Medicare, almost everyone has a favorite song list that can get them fired up and ready to take on the world!
My Top 5 Favorite Songs That Get Me Fired Up are:
• Your Life Is Now - John Mellencamp
• If Today Was Your Last Day - Nickelback
• Lose Yourself - Eminem
• Beautiful Day - U2
• Zimbabwe - Toni Child
