Weekend Movie Preview: The Music Never Stopped

March 5, 2011

Growing up, music was always my escape. Still is. But I’ve always been amazed at the power music has to bring people together. I remember thinking that when I attended dozens and dozens of rock concerts back in the day (the 80’s and 90’s especially).

The Music Never Stopped looks like an interesting film that touches on how music can bring not only great memories to mind, but also its power to bring people together. It’s based on an essay by neurologist Oliver Sacks, who has also written the book “Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain.”

“The Music Never Stopped” also happens to be the name of one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs (for a good representation of the song click here). Both the song and movie of the same name remind me of the importance of music in my life and the importance it has on a lot of other people’s lives. Here’s hoping your weekend is filled with great music that never stops…
