Love this story about how the effect music can have on one’s soul…enjoy, my friends!
Old Man In Nursing Home Reacts To Hearing Music From His Era
It’s such a moving video on the incredible power of music in our lives! I love the reactions/memories of the folk in the home, and the obvious joy they experience. Something we can’t take for granted in our (younger years,) to get up & be moved to dance or sing and enjoy those moments whilst we still can 🙂
Thanks for reminding me to enjoy each day!
So true, it’s really amazing that music is appreciated by everybody – whether they know it or not, it has a truly positive effect!
In all seriousness—I’ve thought about this a lot—I’m going to look like a total idiot when I’m 80 jumping around when Smells Like Teen Spirit or Enter Sandman is played…
LOL it will be AWESOME. (unless you break a hip)
Absolutely! Rock ON!
I’ll probably break a hip.
Mambo – Oliver Sacks (featured in your fab’ clip) is a most wonderful author. Check out his book on Musicophilia – “Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain”. It’s fascinating.
Thank you!!! I will check it out – very interesting topic!
Oliver Sacks…cool! He wrote a book called ‘man who mistook his wife for a hat’ – he has such terrible facial recognition that he once mistook his wife for…a hat!
Ahhh yes, THAT’S why the name sounded familiar – I have that book, it’s great!!
What a beautiful story. I like how he started singing. So amazing.
I know, me too! It makes me happy to see the joy it brings him!
I absolutely loved this clip – it brought tears to my eyes. Music holds such precious memories for everyone. As a little girl, I would go to nursing homes with my Nana, who would sing for the residents while I would dance.
Robin, that is beautiful, I wish I could see a clip of you two doing that. It’s so important to remember to take time out of our busy lives to make a difference like that in somebody else’s. Love you!
And lots of research to back you up. Yes! 🙂
How awesome, I’m sharing this! . Glad I went mining on your site tonight. 😉
I know…I love this and watched it several times myself. Glad you did as well!! 🙂
