Public Forums | HANSON | What does Hanson’s music mean to you?

DebbieA21

Hi all, I’m pretty new here and I’ve always been amazed at how the guys wrote such incredible songs at such young ages. 

Their music has gotten me through so many tough times

It always makes me feel like someone gets it. To me Hanson’s music is about the stories each song tells. 

My favorite is I will come to you for so many reasons. I still can’t get over their talent on the MON and 3 Car Garage albums. Geez at their ages I couldn’t dream that vividly let alone write the beautiful poetry they put into music. 

To me their music grounds me, comforts me and certainly inspires me.  Thank you Isaac, Taylor and, Zac for doing what you do! 

What does their music mean to you?

For me, Hanson has always been my constant, from the time I was 13 to now at almost 36. No matter where I was or what I was going through Hanson was always there for me. I lost my Dad to suicide 12 years ago. It was TOUGH. It still is. Two month to the day after losing him, I had the opportunity to meet Hanson for the first time. I'm sure I was an emotional mess, but Taylor was the first person that I ever talked to it about. Hanson is more than just a band for me. I have so much respect and admiration for them that both my boys are named after them. I'm proud of who they are, everything they represent and everything that they have accomplished. <3

MamaB83 I’m so sorry for your loss, and thank you for sharing your story.

I totally relate to what you are saying about the guys being so influential. 

I never met them but they all deserve more recognition for everything that they do.

This is more a general feeling of how I feel about music...for me music has at times been an adventure, more often and escape and nearly always my way to cope with hard days. On more than one occasion music has been my saving, with Hanson one of my go to songs to lift me is I will come to you. From the first time I heard it became my favorite Hanson song and it remains so to this day. From a young age I have been battling the demons of depression and when no one else could be there it was music I turned to. Hanson's story as well as their music will always server as an inspiration to me.

Aw man, Hanson has gotten me through many hard times. After a stressful day at work, I always have their music with me to put on the stereo in the car and listen to it. By the time I get home, things don't seem as bad if that makes sense? I don't know where I'd be without Hanson, to be honest. I'm so thankful their music came into my life.

@catbobat - I get that too with Hanson's music.    Sometimes it also helps me to pause, take a few minutes to breath and not think about whatever it is that has me all wound up.  After "stepping back" with Hanson for a song (or two or whole album) - I can focus on whatever the issue is with a clearer head and sometimes a new perspective.

Yes! Definitely helps to clear the head. Lately, I've been doing that with the latest membership EP. Really hits the spot after a hard day!

@MamaB83 and SunnyDay25 that's what Hanson's music means to me. We are born into and pass into music. It is everywhere around us. From the sound of our Mother's heartbeat. To the sound of the wind through dried leaves hanging from a bough. To the sound of birdsong, of ocean waves, of adrenaline pumping blood through our veins; to the sounds we can't hear with the tools we were born with but can sense and feel with the ones we were. To the speculation of the vibrations always just outside of our grasp of recognizing them and visions of the ones to come.

Some people were born with the gift to be able to translate the song of existence in ways to everyone and these guys are among the best of those someones. And to spend their lives travelling and hearing all these stories, carrying all these sorrowful tragedies and joys with them with a sense of responsibility to respect them: What a job to be entrusted with by God. To harness and tame the inherent music of our existence in order to soothe the human soul.

I like the pronouncation that they use. 

It must be difficult to hit the first letter all the time.

Try to imagine a world that had pain and Hanson said something like from 'special'. 

The world could only say thank you for your acceptance Hanson.

It's hard to narrow it down but to me, it means: youth, nostalgia, innocence, meeting my best friends, traveling, living life, daring to be out of your comfort zone, love...
