Mind Music


Every now and then I am struck by the simplicity and lucid expressions of human survival by some very ordinary works of art. Words when mingled in the background of some esoteric and haunting melodies always take me for a journey which is next to route of nirvana. One such very powerful song is “return to innocence” by Enigma.

That’s not the beginning of the end that’s the return to yourself, the return to innocence.Love – devotion, Feeling – emotion, Love – devotion, Feeling - emotion.
Don’t be afraid to be weak, don’t be too proud to be strong, just look into your heart my friend, That will be the return to yourself, The return to innocence.
If you want, then start to laugh, If you must, then start to cry, Be yourself don’t hide
Just believe in destiny, Don’t care what people say, Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance, To return to innocence.That’s not the beginning of the end, that’s the return to yourself, The return to innocence.
This reminds me of psychedelic music “which is a musical genre inspired by or attempting to replicate the mind-altering experience of drugs such as cannabis, especially LSD. It is not rigorously defined, and is sometimes interpreted to include everything from Acid Rock and Flower Power music to Hard Rock.

Psychedelia began in the United States folk scene, with New York City's Holy Modal Rounders introducing the term in 1964. A similar band called Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions from San Francisco were influenced by the Byrds and the Beatles to switch from acoustic music to electric music in 1965.

Although these days Trance is also believed to be a form of Psychedelic music but purists have their own reservations. More about it here.
