Listening = Building Associations

The Master Mind principle is based on the idea that we all share one mind and as more people share a similar belief, the cultural consciousness shifts. One of the places you can hear the direct relationship of influence is music.

Most music today is inspired by music from the past. Not everyone who listens to music knows this but people who produce it usually do and they often have a reason for being influenced by a certain artist.

Stevie Wonder has been an incredible source of influence for many hip-hop and R & B artists. Today when I was at the gym the song Rocket Love (1980) came on.

Starting at about 1:21 in the song and throughout the song is a lyric “Cold Cold World”. This same lyric and sound is a song by Genius GZA released in 1996. Today when I heard Rocket Love, I also heard Cold World in my mind which made me think of how and maybe why I discovered this song to begin with.

Do people unconsciously make their current music choices based on influences from the past? Are musicians consciously or unconsciously shaping our culture with their message? Does listening to old music keep you stuck?

As a person who’s been heavily influenced by music I try to make my selections consciously and as a DJ I also have a conscious intention to build unity and a family vibe.

And yes, a group of people in a room listening to the same music, laughing and dancing at the same time is probably one of the most powerful Master Mind groups there can be. Whatever you say or play today, do it consciously, pay attention and play wisely. The words you share will undoubtedly impact the future.

Schoen Von Hinten by Stereo Total on DJ GAL-VanIZed Jukebox

Great little tune by a nice group of people. Got the chance to see them in Hollywood at a small club. I asked my friend who speaks German about the lyrics, it basically boils down to: If you never leave, how can I miss you?

An iPod allows you to fit 1,000’s of songs in your pocket; whereas a Jukebox stays in one place and your selections are limited. What would you do if you only got to choose 52 songs to put on your iPod? What would the list include?

Cycles by Raw Produce on DJ GAL-VanIZed Jukebox

“I said well daddy don’t you know that things go in cycles?”
“Back and forth, forth and back.”
That sums it up.

Winter Wonderland Mix by Motivatorman to Feel Good Energy

May this entirely unique version of Winter Wonderland by Motivatorman spark courage and creativity now and in the New Year to come. Motivatorman is a public speaker who helps his audience identify hope and encouragement through movies. This YouTube video contains slides of his original artwork and is backed by an 80’s synth version of Winter Wonderland performed and sung by Motivatorman himself. Suffice it to say, he is multi-talented. To see more, visit his movie blog at: http://www.motivatorman.com/

Motivatorman closes his Winter Wonderland video with these words: “Feel the FEEL GOOD Energy of the Holiday Season.” That seems like a good way to end this post. If you’d like to add something, please comment below.
