That Song Changed My Life: Greeting Committee

August 25, 2016

I like music, you like music and of course, your favorite bands like music.

"What song changed your life?"

I was asked this question a while ago and it has stuck with me ever since. Music is such an amazing thing from how it can turn smiles into tears or take you from your car to half-way across the world with just a few notes, that I became fascinated with finding out what other people's life-changing songs were.

This week, we hear from The Greeting Committee...

"Medicine" by Daughter is the first song that made me pull out a notepad so I could write, "This song changed my life." I'm sure I could find that page buried under songs of my own in my nightstand.

I remember lying on the floor of my bedroom three or so years ago, just staring at the ceiling with the song on an endless loop. I find Elena's voice to be very comforting, as well as Igor and Remi's instrumentals. It has a sort of warmth to it in the way that it gives a sense of stability and safety.

The line, "You could still be what you want to, what you said you were when I met you," repeats in my head on my off days, reminding me that I'll always have a place or a heart to retreat to in complete madness. It's very special to me and has saved my life on more than one occasion. So, thank you, Daughter.
