Friday 5! The country King of Tears, a video vault, and other good stuff

By July 20, 2017Friday Five

Welcome back to the weekend!

We missed you. If you’d like to get a chance to catch up, you can always drop us a line. (Down there in the comments, that is.) We’d love to hear what you have been up to and what music therapy successes (or stresses) you’ve been having. But until then, enjoy our Friday 5 this week. You may even sense a bit of a theme 🙂

 

Song
Live Like You Were Dying by Tim McGraw
A song about living life to the fullest. If you haven’t already heard this one, it’s a country classic.

Resource
Virtual Job Shadow
If you want to see what a real music therapy session looks like, or even get session ideas for yourself, this video vault was meant for you. (And if you know of any other music therapy YouTube videos we should add, share it in the comments!)

Podcast
Revisionist History: The King of Tears
Malcom Gladwell goes to Nashville to talk with Bobby Braddock, who has written more sad songs than almost anyone else. What is it about music that makes us cry?

Movie
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Based on a true story of a man who suffers a stroke and then experiences “Locked-In Syndrome”. Both educational and fairly moving.

Laughs
“If You Won’t Be My Number One, Number Two On You” by Roger Miller
Definitely listen to the full song if you can. It’s only about a minute and a half, and we certainly had a bit of a chuckle ourselves.

We love making the Friday 5 and a lot of you have told us that you love reading it. Please help us cover our costs and keep the love going here.

Peace out,
-Hannah and Matt
