What has music made you do? #MMMDI win the ultimate SOL REPUBLIC prize pack
What has music made you do? What song reminds you of a special moment in time? Music sets the tone for activities in our lives. It brings up memories. It gets attached to our emotions.
Music. We sing. We dance. We laugh. We cry.
The cotton-eyed Joe comes on at a wedding? You get on the dance floor and get your “hitch kick” on! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you are missing out!)
My girls? Music makes them move. If they hear a beat drop, they start grooving. No beat? No music? No problem. They even make their own music to move.
If you love music, you need to check you the new campaign from SOL REPUBLIC, Music Made Me Do It (#MMMDI- check out their video). 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.
Showcasing some of the things music makes us do is the Music Made Me Do It Story video, live here: http://youtu.be/bme-xiskVqA . Over the next month, SOL REPUBLIC’s Saviors of Sound (SOS) will be sharing their stories about how music has enabled them to do amazing things, from the incredible to the cringe worthy. Athlete Michael Phelps and DJ/Producer/Dim Mak Records Founder Steve Aoki are two of the SOL REPUBLIC SOS involved with the project.
The best part? If you you share a STORY OR A PHOTO about something interesting that you’ve done because of music or a song that you remember with a moment (wedding song, favorite road trip song and road trip memory, etc), you can win a SOL REPUBLIC ultimate prize pack!

Music was a big part of my life as a teenager! I think being a teenager is hard for petty much everyone.. but when I as a teen my parents divorced and it made my life pretty complicated. Music was my escape, I was almost always listening to music and went to concerts often too. I have a greater appreciation for music because I feel like it helped get me through a tough time in my life.
So glad you had music to help you through! can you please repost/reply using the #MMMDI hashtag so your entry counts?

Music made me travel! I remember listening to a Coldplay album a couple years ago and for some reason it inspired me to travel! I told my husband that I wanted to save up and visit Europe. Fours years later and a lot of saving we’ve visited Paris (twice), Rome, and London! 🙂
We need to get back to London/Paris again.

Some days it is very hard for me to get started with my exercise. When I don’t want to exercise like I should, I turn on the music and it makes me want to get moving and stay moving. I make it a game and see how many songs I can listen to in a mile. Once my day is over, I turn on my relaxing music and just chill. #MMMDI
Music has made it easier for me to walk around my neighborhood to get into better shape. Listening to my music on my iPod, makes exercising easier for me. It also helps makes the time past. I also find that when I listen to music, It helps me to relieve any stress that I may be having. #MMMDI
Music fills our home with love. My family is so talented my husband plays the guitar & ukulele, my 2 boys play the drums & piano, my girl plays the tamborine and I sing, well I try too lol. We turn off the tv, unplug from social media & have a rocking time family fun time. I love hearing the music, seeing our family having a great time & we’re making cherish memories. No matter what is happening in our life, God and music always stay beautiful.
So very true!

Music makes me get up and dance when nobody is looking and it motivates me to try harder at being the best I can be.
Music made me happy and healthy #MMMDI I love a good beat and a huge variety of music. I can find any kind of music to match any mood. I think it cleans my mind and makes me focus better. It does so much to get me in the right frame of mind whether its to go to work, take care of my family or doing some chores!!
Music made me get up and do the 2 step. Music made me get up and do the twist. Music made me get up and do the macarana. But most of all, music made me sign out loud like no one was there. 🙂 #MMMDI
Love the wedding feet pic! I am glad when you thought of music you thought of our special day!
A specific song that always brings me back to a special day is “Wrapped Up in You” by Garth Brooks. It was our first dance as husband and wife and we had so much fun that night. But I also rememeber practicing our first dance and David whirling me around the living room and kitchen. I can say just a few of the lyrics and he can finish the song. Cheesy but very sweet for us. #MMMDI
#MMMDI Music makes me smile. It makes me move. It gets me out of bed and cleaning the house when that’s the last thing I want to do. It motivates me to run faster and longer. It helps me pacify my kids. Music makes the world go ’round.
#MMMDI Music makes me relive my memories. It brings back both the good times and the bad times. Nothing makes me cry like a sad, sad song. And nothing cheers me up like Christmas music!
Music is my life. I love to go to live concerts. I try to go to them at least 2-3 times a month. I work for a DJ company, I’m surrounded by music 24/7 and even go to sleep with music in the background.. music to me is my pulse.
The music made me arrive early to my son’s dance. Get there and Dance like a manic which embarrassed my son. Then dance with my husband, which only make a few people laugh. All in all the music helped make the night awesome 🙂 #MMMDI
#MMMDI Music made me take my 1st plane ride! I won tickets to Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL. Took my friend and had a great time. That tiny plane was so cold and pretty scary.
i was never able to go to the dentist without being partially knocked out i can’t take the noise of the drills etc! so i went to a specialist dentist and he told me that when i come next time to bring headphones so we bought me a pair and we brought my walkman with Rick Springfield in it and turned up … to this day at 41 i have to have the music to calm my soul if i have to have a tooth fixed! #MMMDI
Music makes me dance.
Music makes me smile.
Music makes me happy.
I listen while I run a mile.
#MMMDI Music got me through some tough times in my life. Whether it is a close friend’s death, or a personal crisis, I always find music picks me up. People don’t understand how music can be therapy. But believe me, the right music can make an unbearable situation, much more bearable!
Music makes me feel good about myself and dance while out with my friends. Music makes me a better mom as I rock my little ones to sleep before bed. Music makes me a better teacher, rounding up my students and making them feel welcomed. Music makes me feel relaxed while I’m all alone in my car relaxing. Music makes my life go on.#MMMDI
Music has made me more confident. It has a way of making me happy when im sad. It helps me grieve when im sad. Music motivates me to exercise and get results because it makes you want to move. #MMMDI
#MMMDI Music helped me get through labor with my two sons. Having calm music on helped me to relax and get through the pain.
#MMMD I love! Music is huge in our house and I didn’t realize my love for music would rub off so magically on my sons. They don’t do sports (I guess that part didn’t rub off too well, but find by me), so imagine all the free time. Our basement and home has almost every instrument and then some. They play, jam and are starting to make their own songs. Problem is: they take my headphones and music devices. Fingers crossed that I win some new ones! Thanks for the giveaway!
What did the music make me do? It introduced me to the man I married! As a college student music was very important to me! One afternoon I was dancing to the B52’s in my apartment when an onlooker (my future spouse) observed me twirling around in the living room. From there our lives connected…all thanks to The Love Shack!

Oh I love music! Music makes me dance like no one is watching. Lol “Because I’m Happy!” Music calms me down at times. And music gets me through my workout, I don’t like to workout but it must be done! 🙂
Sometimes music just makes you dance. My inopprotune moment that #MMMDI just happened to occur in the shower. A song came on that I just had to get down to, unfortunately, I was in the shower and I slipped, fell and cracked my head off the wall too. But music made me boogie!
I’d like the Headphones for my son
The Sesame Street My Peek A Boo Elmo is on my son’s list.

#mmmdi Music has really changed my life in so many ways. It has inspired me and got me thru the good and the bad. My clothes and hairstyle have changed because of music.
Can’t wait for my next concert!
I love the feeling I get when listening to music. I love listening to different music. Music relaxes me and makes me happy. #MMMDI when I listen to music sometimes I just feel free.
One thing from your gift guide that is on my list as well is the GoPro Hero 4 for my husband.
#MMMDI Music made me change my whole look. New hair new clothes new car. Music has helped me meet great lifeling friends. Music has brought me closer to family too! Music has made me go to hundreds of shows over the years
I was in charge of my daughters after Prom party. After getting many sponsors and events still no theme. I ws going thru her playlist on itunes and found her favorite song. After prom party now set to go on #MMDI
I met my now husband at a local battle of the bands event. I was warned by my friend to avoid him at all costs because he was cocky which just made me cocky. I was having a great time dancing and decided that I would show him what he was missing out on….well we’re married now so…. #MMMDI
The kindle is on my list as well.
I used to be such a shy guy in grade school. But around 6th grade, I started getting into Soundcloud and sampling songs and doing a whole ton of DJ stuff. Over time I got more and more confident and started singing and wrote lyrics and learned to play the piano, ukulele and the guitar! Funny thing is, it’s because of music that I want to become a music artist. #MMMDI
I’ve gotten a tattoo of song lyrics. Sometimes music and lyrics just resonate with you that you want it to be apart of you permanently. #MMMDI
It was a nice spring day on a Friday. I woke up and showered and started to hear playing on the stereo Born to be Wild. I walk to the garage to get in my car for work, But it was so nice out. I kept hearing the song go through my head and decide to play hookie from work and ride my Bike all day. #MMMDI
#MMMDI. Music makes me move. I like to “dance” to the the music. Music also makes me remember of different times. It brings you back to a different time.
I want the Vitamix Professional Series 75
Music puts me in a good mood 🙂
The Vitamix Professional Series 75.
Several years ago ,while vacationing in the Sunshine state,I was driving along a quiet riverside street. I was not familiar with the area and did not know the speed limit was 25 MPH. On the radio cam my favorite performer Stevie Nicks. She was belting out my favorite song Sometimes it’s a Breeze.My foot got heavy and I was doing 45MPH. Outta nowhere come the blue lights behind me. The officer says Madam why were you driving so fast? To which I reply Stevie Nicks made me do it! He chuckled and I was let off with a warning. Whew! So the music made me do it was a valid excuse and it got me out of a hefty ticket ! Sometimes it IS a breeze indeed!

i like these products. they’re sleek and modern looking
#MMMDI I don’t listen to just one type of music. I know music makes me feel good if it has a good beat. Music can set my mood from somber to excited. music is great background noise when i’m studying for class. It peps me up while sitting in traffic on my way to work.
#MMMDI Music has really had a huge influence in my life. So many of my best firneds I met thu music at shows or in groups. I really love traveling across country site seeing on my way to great music festivals. Music can have such a great influence over my mood too.
Music makes me dance all my worries away from sunset to sunrise!
Sol Republic Relays are on my wishlist!
#MMDI Music has helped me in many areas of my life. I have severe learning disabilities. In middle school and high school, I struggled studying. Listening to music helped calm me down and focus. Music helped me through junior high, high school, college and life today.

Music Made Me Do It. It inspired me to join a dance class. It made me move and groove. It motivated me to lose 10 pounds this year. #MMMD
I have a stitch fix box on my list
Music made me work odd hours just so I could listen to it while working. #MMMDI
I’m in the market for a new blender & I’ve had my eye on the Vitamix Professional Series 75.
Growing up I had a hard time getting over my introverted personality. I didn’t have much confidence, but picking up an instrument changed that. Listening to and playing the music I liked helped me build and project my confidence. It really shaped me through the years. #MMMDI
I would also like the Paperwhite.
