Why Do the Almost Blue Feel so Good
When people listen to the blues they relate whatever sadness or troubles they’re going through in life. The original blues artists grew up in a chapter of history filled with so much pain and had to persevere through so many disadvantages in life. Men in particular couldn’t express their pain to their partners. Maybe it was pride or they just weren’t taught to express feelings.
Many blues singers back in the day did so much road work that made it to easy to be unfaithful. All of the breakups and unfaithfulness gave them plenty of material for songs. I’m sure it was a way to turn a negative into a positive.
2. What do we learn from the blues?
Blues songs teach us three things:
- hey remind you that you’re not the first to struggle with situations such as relationships or money problems.
- They give you perspective. You start to think maybe your problems aren’t as bad as you think they are.
- You find humor in your situation and laugh about it. Maybe you could even write a great song yourself about the problems.
