[Don't mind the scattered but apparent brain thought of this blog]
I know everyone says they "love" music and how it's their savior blah blah. However for me music is something else entirely, on a whole different level.
Music just gets me, period.
No matter what mood I am in music just connects with me and makes me feel how I want to feel in that moment. I don't just listen to the song, I listen to the lyrics, the melodies, the sounds of the sticks hitting the hi-hat or tom. The sounds of the guitar riff, where the guitarist switches between chords, and of course the vocals.
With music I overanalyze and dissect each part.
I love lyrics especially because it's someone being vulnerable and sometimes subliminal. I love words and poetry so when they are applied to music I am in heaven.
This is what usually gets me hooked, especially if it's a catchy melody that will make me want to listen to the song 11,000 more times on repeat.
Being an amateur drummer I listen for all the changes and and hits the drummer makes. I love identifying which cymbal is being hit or when a double bass pedal is being used.
I love wondering why the singer chose to sing it in that style or why he/she annunciated different parts of the word (usually with the word "me").
I wonder if I will ever connect with something the way I connect with music. I doubt it because as humans we usually have only one true passion, right? Well graphic design is a close second.
Because I love live shows and thought I'd end it with this
