November is Positive Music Month and you can get a free download of one (or sometimes two) fabulous positive music songs by award-winning musicians every day of the month at

If you are a believer in the power of positive thinking/listening, you'll love this treasure trove!

EmPower says:

Try a diet of positive tunes for a month and see where it takes you.

In an article recently published by the Alban Institute entitled, "We Are What We Sing," Charolotte Kroeker says, "The past few years have brought us new awareness of the power of music . . . Neuroscientists explain that music is fundamental to our brains and that music communicates the emotions and ideas that are the building blocks of human nature. "

So if the music we listen to is the building block of our very natures, then the idea of "Change your music, change your life" takes on a very literal meaning.

Singer/Songwriter/Laughologist, Greg Tamblyn calls most of the music we get fed from the mainstream music industry "whiny victim love songs." In fact, as a public service, Greg has created a list of The (New) Top 10 Whiny Victim Love Songs from his "Analog Brain in a Digital World" CD. On this live cut Greg says, "Listening to music with new ears I found songs masquerading as love songs that are really about taking hostages." You can hear the cut at

Posi Music Month, which began November 1, is meant to raise our awareness of the messages we are getting from the music we are listening to, and to not only remove the music with negative, judgmental, angry or victimized messages, but to begin to feed yourself music with positive, uniting, life-affirming messages. "

Warning: Side effects of a Posi Music diet may include sudden bursts of compassion and optimism and elevated self esteem.

In order to get the free daily download, you have to sign up at the EmPower site--but it's fast and free. Then look for the purple "Free Download" icon on the left side of the home page.

In addition they have produced over 200 PosiPalooza! concerts in the US & Canada, as well as the annual emPower Posi Music Festival -- a weekend of music, workshops and fun where fans and artists alike can inspire and be inspired. They also host an online radio show of great Posi Music -- emPower PosiTive Radio.

EmPower's motto is, "Change your music, change your life."
