The effect of music on my life:
WHERE DO I BEGIN!?!? Music is the foundation that defines who I am. I have been listening to music ever since i was little. I could listen to the same song over and over as a child. I mean on a hour 2 hour road trip i would have the same song playing over and over, and i put my parents through this actually, a lot of times when i was little. There was likely only one specific song that calmed me down, and all other songs, I would scream. So it was either hear the same song over and over or hear me screaming. Wouldn’t you love being my parents?
As I matured, so did my music listening. I began listening to the radio then graduated to albums.
Also, music makes me feel connected and reminds that I am a human and have valid emotions. I can express myself and have my own “identity’ through it. I have a spotify subscription currently with a TON of playlists …im talking like 50 playlists!
My Music Taste
Now, my music taste ranges everything from Passion Pit to Tool. I like music that either 1) pushes the envelope and makes you think or 2) is emotional. I used to tell people I like Alternative rock, punk, and metal, but i think these are very broad terms. Metal has too many sub categories and alternative rock-well…what makes it alternative? Nonetheless, the music I listen to is important to me and I have a few bands I absolutely love.
Death Cab For Cutie
Metallica, (had the 8th grade metallica obsession phase :p)
Tool (they actually have some intelligent songs, like their infamous song Forty-six and two).
I am literally everywhere and these are just ‘big dogs’ of music and there are tons of smaller, but still great artists
Just to name a few. I love making playlists of all the music I am currently listening to and updating them as I find new tracks. I have three playlists of music I like listening too.
