Music Musings

Music and sound can be very helpful tools in our stress management practice. I have a “Feel Good” playlist that I listen to whenever I need a mood boost. It is filled with songs that just make me smile or give me a confidence booster. Then there are songs that make me smile because they remind of me someone or an event, or they are just nostalgic. 


I happen to be a romantic at heart and beautiful love songs to equally beautify melodies get me every time which is why we are featuring Coco Jones ICU. 


I have watched Coco Jones as Hilary Banks on Bel Air and had no idea she was also a singer until this song was released. The song is beautiful to me for several reasons. The first one is that the melody is just pleasing to my spirit and plays so smoothly over my ears. Her voice accompaniment makes me sway and reminisce. The lyrics are everything as well. 


I love love. I have experienced love that is all-encompassing and just makes you feel wonderful and giddy all over. I have also experienced when things do not go well with that person but you work through it to get back to the good place. That is what ICU reminds me of. The ups and downs of being with someone that is everything to you. Now, do not get me wrong or get it twisted. We both male and female can also survive if and when that relationship comes to an end for whatever reason. 


That is the wonder of the human spirit and being able to heal and build resilience. Coming through stressful situations which includes a difficult breakup makes you stronger and hopefully wiser for the next challenge. This song just reminds me to enjoy it all while we are in it. Enjoy the good moments that someone has allowed themselves to share with you because there is a level of vulnerability in allowing yourself to be loved and to love. It is a gift. Contrary to the crazy relationship landscape and advice that is being thrown out there, I do believe that a lot men and women are just looking for that special person they can connect with. Even if it does not last always, at least there is that especially moment that you both can share. 



ICU by Coco Jones lyrics

Oh, ooh

(Welcome to the camp)

Oh, ooh

Oh, ooh

Mm, mm-mm-mm

Mm, yeah, yeah

Oh, ooh

Something 'bout your hands on my body

Feels better than any man I ever had

Something 'bout the way you just get me

I try not, don't 'cause I can't forget

You got a feeling, a soul, that I need in my life (yeah, yeah)

Oh, woah

And though we may grow, I don't know why we don't grow apart

Maybe I-I-I-I-I, I need you

I breathe you, turnin' my heart blue, ooh, ooh

Maybe I-I-I-I-I, I need you

When I leave you, I see you, oh-oh-oh, oh

Oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

First we agreed that we better as friends

I'll delete every messagе that we send

Try to move on with somеbody less like you

I don't know how we end up in the red

Find myself readin' your comments again

And then we end up in each other's heads

It all makes sense because

You've got a feeling, a soul, that I need in my life, babe

Oh, oh, oh-ooh-woah

And though we may grow, I don't know why we don't grow apart, babe

Baby

Maybe I-I-I-I-I, I need you

I breathe you, turnin' my heart blue, ooh, ooh

Maybe I-I-I-I-I, I need you

When I leave you, I see you, oh-oh-oh, oh

Oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

Oh-oh-oh, oh

Oh-oh-oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

Maybe I just feel lost without you

Maybe I'm just pissed off without you

Maybe my life's just off without you

Maybe you're worth it all to me, baby

Maybe, maybe, just maybe
