It is true that music has a significant impact at every stage of life, from the womb, through childhood, adulthood and old age. Music became a vital part of all human cultures for a range of reasons in the whole world, and I am no exception. I usually listen to cheerful music when I need motivation and on the go to work. I probably want to chill out with music when feeling stress, it could help me stay energetic and get back to work with more optimistic and effective. This article will be used to save some of my favorite songs during all the time I deep dive into music.
1. Nancy Mulligan – Ed Sheeran
“Nancy Mulligan” is one of the most personal songs on the album ÷ (2017) of an English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, telling the story of how his grandparents, William Sheeran, a Protestant from Belfast, Northern Ireland and Nancy Mulligan (real name Anne Mulligan), a Catholic from the Republic of Ireland, met, fell in love during the Second World War and got married at the Wexford border. Sheeran said: “They got engaged and no one turned up at their wedding. He stole all the gold teeth in his dental surgery and melted them down into a wedding ring, and they wore borrowed clothes to get married, and just basically have this kind of Romeo and Juliet romance, which is like the most romantic thing. So I thought I’d write a song about it and make it a jig.”
I really loved after listening to it the first time, when I walked back home, Tokyo – Japan, December 17, 2019
