Songs about Reincarnation & Past Lives
Songs about reincarnation and past lives tend to bolster my writing. If you know my books, then you know there is an underlying theme of reincarnation in most of them. I love music of virtually every genre, as I like my books, so I decided to do some digging.
It turns out there are several songs about reincarnation out there. Past lives feature, perhaps surprisingly, perhaps not, in many musical genres. Creatives are often pulled in the direction of the fringe thoughts on religious banter. Past lives are definitely on the fringe. So why write about it in song and story? Because it’s the truth, and the truth needs to be heard.
That’s my perspective at any rate. I write about past lives and their effect on the present life often ranging in genre from dystopian and post-apocalyptic, to science fiction, literary fiction, and most recently, crime fiction. The idea of past lives excites a storyteller. The layers of complexity and purpose in the writing are ten-fold over a traditional life lived throughout a single story. In this practice, a dozen lives can influence the story.
Though I’ve read and discovered other books of fiction featuring reincarnation, music in the vein of past lives has gripped me recently. I want to hear other artists’ portrayals of the truth. I want to experience a kinship in all media that offers the truth. Past lives are real and they work in tandem with karma to create your next life. Though karma can affect you in this life, its larger role is to write your next lifetime.
But I digress. The music I discovered just yesterday that speaks of reincarnation is provided below for your enjoyment.
