How many of us hate music? Yeah we can “hate” on certain kinds of music, certain musicians, certain songs, but on music as a whole?
I certainly hope not.
I’ve never heard a single person I have ever known say such an atrocity. Music guides us through our mishaps, our troubles, our thoughts, our boredom, our lives. Music is my ears, my eyes, my ability to touch. Music might be my soul. Nah, not all of it but a fairly nice sized chunk and I mean REALLY nice! I know some people who probably believe I am a class-A n00b when it comes to music and they’d probably be right when it comes to the standards they have.
For me, I just know what I like. I love listening to anything for at least 30 seconds before a) I start liking it or b) the complete opposite. Example: Queen will never ever let me down, nor will The Who. However, country is definitely not my thing. Also while I’d love to love every one of the Beatles songs made, it just isn’t possible with the more psychedelic songs courtesy of Harrison.
It’s not even the music in general that makes my day it’s those damn great lyrics.
So I’ll leave you with this. I feel like these lyrics kind of fit who I am, and what I want to say but “don’t know how”. From the oh so popular Oasis song called Wonderwall:
And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don’t know how
