I love the way music gives you answers you can’t find yourself and how listening to it can pep you up, calm you down, put you to sleep, put you at ease, get you in ‘the mood’, make you want to dance, make you want to cry, make you want to smile, and make you want to text your friends the lyrics that remind you of them and them alone.
I love that sacred feeling of hearing a really, really, really good record for the first time and what that can mean to someone and finding a way of preserving that feeling; because equally special though quite different, is the feeling of listening again and again to a very, very familiar record.
I love how there is a song for everything. It doesn’t matter what your feelings are; chances are, someone wrote a song that matches how you feel, as specifically as possible.
I love finding a song that wasn’t written about you but could have been.
I love that two different people can hear the same song and glean completely different impressions from it. Or conversely, that two people can hear the same song and be on the same wavelength at the same time.
I love that music aids in the discovery of kindred spirits.
