Dear Music Lovers,
I am not a music lover, but I love certain songs and there is one piece of music. It has much significance to me.
I first heard the music piece on the radio called Tranquility in 1984. I just had a twenty six hours of difficult time giving birth to my first born. When I went to my room with my baby, totally exhausted, this music was played in the pipe line. It gave me tranquility as I lovingly gazed at my sleeping baby.
I fell in love with the soothing music and it became my favourite music.
Is Tranquility the same as Music Box dancer? Was it played by Frank Mills then?
This same baby plays the piano, and lives thousands of miles in Singapore. When she plays it to me over the phone, it gives me tranquility.
Many parenting experts suggest playing music to your baby while she/he is still in your stomach. D is the only child who plays the piano. I wonder if her listening to this piece when she was a few hours old have anything to do with it. What do you think?
Frank Mills (born June 27, 1942), is a Canadian pianist and recording artist, best known for his solo instrumental hit "Music Box Dancer".
Mills grew up in Verdun, Quebec and started playing piano at age 3. He briefly attended McGill University and in the late 1960s became a member of The Bells. He left the band in 1971 just before it had international success with the single "Stay Awhile."
