As an avid music lover, it infiltrates every part of my life and certain songs trigger powerful memories from different stages of my life. Whenever I hear “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” by C+C Music Factory I think of my dad and random dance parties in the basement when I was a little girl. Music has gotten me through some of the highest and lowest points of my life. It is a daily part of my everyday routine from what song my morning alarm plays to what inspires me to run that extra mile. No matter what type of music you like, melodies and beats have a universal language on an unconscious level that we can all relate to.
