I was reading Cherie's post when I realized I had never written any posts about music on my blog before. Not once! Shame, shame, shame! Anyway, she says she is a firm believer that no one can truly appreciate music, unless you listen to it at full volume. I couldn't agree with her more!
Now I've got to say something here: good music is like great wine. I hate when people say 'this one is the best, that one is more expensive'... See, I've tried about hundreds of them and to be very honest: the ones I like the most are neither expensive nor famous. I just like them, it doesn't have to be so complicated! Narrow-minded people are so annoying... so, if you happen to be one of them, don't come to me saying I have no taste for wine or whatever nonsense you might be thinking. I really don't care.
Music is about the same, isn't it? I can't stand heavy metal, for example; it scares me out of my mind (it does; it really, really does). I love jazz, definitely some blues, maybe a little pop. And I absolutely love rock, you know. I grew up listening to rock music and it is such a huge part of my life (Aerosmith is so cool I never get tired of listening to their songs!). Still, not all rock bands are awesome: some are just ok and I must admit most of them completely suck.
Every now and then, though, I bump into new amazing songs that make me want to sing loud enough so I can truly feel those lyrics. Honestly, there are few things I enjoy more than the first listen of a great song, even if it's nothing new to the rest of the world. That's how all my hyper-addictive musical relationships begin. And they invariably end up holding me captive for weeks or even months until I find another amazing artist that'll automatically cause me to break up with my former musical affair.
I remember when I first discovered Nina Simone many years ago. Isn't she great?
