Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Sometimes when you are listening to a song, it seems like it must have been written about you. You can understand and relate to the lyrics so well, you almost feel like the musicians are singing directly to you.

You can have a similar experience when watching a movie or reading a book, or even just hearing someone tell a story. If you have a strong emotional response, you might say, “It really speaks to me.”

Rihanna talks about the music that speaks to her. Some songs are so personal and emotional for her, she feels like they are about her own life. Rihanna says that the experience of listening to songs like that can be really overwhelming. Sometimes, she has to stop listening to the song because it makes her too emotional.

Who are some musicians whose songs speak to you? What movies or books speak to you?

 some of songs are amazing give you a special sense ,specially when you be alone , there are unspeakable emotional things we can’t describe .


I don’t prefer specific singer , I like any song give me my calm , if you want to know if this singer or song are wonderful just when you feel yourself fly in the sky .


I would like to recommend everyone to listen to my favourite singer Omar DIAB .

The song called ‘alone’ by sista really speaks to me. I get emotional whenver I listen to it. It’s as if the lyrics are directly for me. It’s a great song.
