Snapshot 4 from Lexia Wilson

Music is the pathway to the soul. Music to me is a way to tell ones true character. My favorite band would have to be Lynyrd Skynyrd. This certain band has come to be my favorite because of my parents. They would listen to them all the time. I would come home from school all the time to my mom jamming out while cleaning listening to their music. So I really had no other choice other than to listen to them; so I did and I ended up really liking them as well. Even though I like and will listen to all sorts of music they will always be my favorite band. My favorite song from this artist would have to be free bird. I really enjoy this song because while listening to this song I can create a beautiful vision in my mind. I was kind of hard to chose a certain song because I like all of them but I chose this one because it makes me think of my dad. There is a local band cal parental guidance from my town that plays at the bars, parties and such they even played at my graduation party.They play all kinds of different songs but one they do sing is free bird. Where ever they go my dad is out there on the dance floor yelling "FREE BIRD" and they play it for him because it is his favorite. Some lyrics from this song that I feel is important is "'Cause I'm as free as a bird now And this bird you cannot change". I really like these lyrics because it makes you feel as if you feel like no matter how much this world changes you can't be changed because you are who you are and nothing can change that. This song is very powerful to me and it will forever remind me of my dad.

This is the picture of the original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd. The original group was in a plan crash and three of them died including the lead singer Ronnie Van Zant. 


  1. I have heard of Lynyrd Skynyrd before, I am not really familiar with their work. I really loved a certain sentence in you snapshot."Music is the pathway to the soul. Music to me is a way to tell ones true character." I believe this is a beautiful quote and it is an accurate description. I believe that it can really show who someone is.

  2. I have been introduced to music through my parents too. When I read this line, "This song is very powerful to me and it will forever remind me of my dad." I thought of a song I listen to that reminds me of my dad too.

  3. I like when you said music is a way to tell ones true character i never thought about it like that.
