Music Made Me Do It – Ultimate Giveaway

Music. It does one thing for us all, it makes us move. Not just to move on the dance floor and shake or spin with a beat, but move towards it and seek out the source.

What has music made you do? What song reminds you of a special moment in time?

Music Made Me Do It is about how music is more than just words with a beat; music is emotion and provides us with inspiration. A good song can help us be happier, run faster, think clearer and love better. From the outrageous and irreverent to sexy and courageous, MMMDI showcases and celebrates the stories we all have of music inspiring us to do anything and everything.

You’ll win one of every product SOL REPUBLIC makes, including the brand new PUNK wireless speaker.

Yep, you heard right. Every. Product.

For us at EO its:
“A freezing cold night in late winter, frantically searching for a companion to go see a favorite DJ who is in town playing a rare 7 hours, in a remote area of Brooklyn. You’ve never been there, and have no idea how to get there, but you know what you will find will make it all worth it. Now imagine all of your friends have backed out. You’re the last man standing. What do you do? The answer is easy, you go alone, because this music can you that much.

After years of attending clubs and shows with a normal group of music lovers, this would be a unique night. Initially my decision to go it alone was filled with anxiety and uncertainty of how this would go. That was replaced by a sense of adventure and excitement. The possibilities for the night were endless and the music….oh, the music would be there. The only companion that was really needed. Dawning a time tested pair of dance worn sneakers and downing one last shot of vodka to warm up the cold February night, my journey began.

After trudging through what felt like frozen tundra, I made it. Max Graham, in the flesh, open to close, 7 hours nonstop, I was in it for the long haul. Once inside the frigid night air was forgotten and quickly replaced by warm bodies moving in rhythm as their maestro set the evenings tone. There were lights, and bartenders, and strangers, but above all there was the music; the music that made me move into the night alone. Worries abandoned and drink in hand, for hours it was just us, me and the music, moving as one, unaware of anything else. No one to chat with, no one to care about or check on. It was the music that brought me to the dance floor and made me forget that I was alone.

The one thing I didn’t realize was, I wasn’t alone. I wasn’t the only one music moved that night. As alone as I thought I was, music made me and the rest of the party goers that night come together.

What started as a nod of shared approval for a track, or an ‘excuse me’ for dancing into someone, quickly changed to a bonding community of people moving together. Music had us speaking the same language and living the same dream.

It made me dance along side new friends, jot down numbers, and even briefly fall in love. It made me talk about the night that was with diner pancakes at 5 AM and it made me lay in bed until 4PM on a Sunday. We were all together with the music and no one was alone. Even if those relationships lasted for only 10 hours, and were never to be found again, music made us move that night.

So what made me go to Brooklyn alone on a freezing winter night? Yeah, I guess you could say music made me do it. We’d all be alone without it. #MMMDI” – Shikey

    Music Made Me: drive 700+ miles to spend 14 hours a day for 3 days at a music festival. Was it worth being out in constant 90+ degree weather for all that time? Being sweated on and lost in crazy crowds? Totally! Music brings people together and gives them a common ground to share. Strangers suddenly have something in common with you and they make the music experience better!

    In July of 2004 I was sat at my desk at work for an insurance company in London that i had been stuck in for 8 years and The Shapeshifters "Lolas Theme" came on my Ipod. For some reason that song just made me think theres got to be more to life. I quit my job, gave up my lease of my flat and within 2 weeks i had moved to Sydney Australia to start a year of travel, exploring, music and discovery. Its a song that changed my outlook on life .

    Music made me do it: I spend a lot of money on music. I spend a lot of time talking about music. Like most true fans of music I do my best to live it too! I've taught myself how to play multiple instruments and next week I will be attending my 27th show of the year as a paid ticket holder. The craziest thing i'd ever been a part of was this years The Hudson Project . The reason being is this was an absolute shit show. Most people had heard the horror stories and I'd say that their mostly true. But thats not the crazy part. The crazy part is despite the 6 hour lines, invasive police and the entire festival being a mud pit it was still AWESOME! Seeing some of my favorite artists go on stage and not hold back during the craziest rain storm ive ever been in will be the highlight of my concert going life! And it was all because of the music that the worst conditions became enjoyable and revered by my friends and I today. Shout out to Big Gigantic for the insane memories. MUSIC MADE US DO IT!
