Music. I like to talk about music. Music has been such a big part of me since maybe when I don't even know how to read or talk yet. My mum and dad is such an avid fan of oldies tracks like Madonna, Spice Girls, Motown, Eagles, Scorpions you name it. They have a stack of boxes of old tapes and cassettes and that I used to crawl on it and stare at the cover and the lyrics attached to it. Way before googling lyrics were a thing.
Growing up, I saw my mum always on MTV at certain hours to watch her favorites music videos. Gwen Stefani, Jessica Simpsons, Spice Girls, Britney Spears were her everyday jams, and automatically I would listen to it too even before I knew any english.
It is amazing how music has changed my life over the years.
I'm amazed whenever I found a songs that the lyrics perfectly described or eerily described how I felt or currently going through.
For a moment, I thought wow they must be feeling the same way like i do. Glad to know that I'm not the only one in this.
And that never fails to amazes me everytime.
I salute all those singers and lyricist that are able to put what they wanted to say and convey through a melodies.
I always gets excited whenever I talk to ppl about my music preferences. Like, I'm not easily warms up to someone new but you can bring up music talk to the table and I would quickly eat it up and warms up to you. That is how much I love music.
I love it when ppl actually listens to my songs recommendations. Because I paid so much attention to the lyrics and to me, it is useless if the song can't speak to me then I would not like it.
When i recommend a songs to someone, normally I would hope that they would take a hint and listens to the lyric really closely because that is how I normally communicate or want to say.
How to expand your music taste, I often get questions like this from my friends whenever they pay a visit to my spotify page . Honestly, I did not really know. I mean, I found new songs or artists to listen to in the most random ways possible. Mum and dad were my first influences. They introduced me to many singers that I still like to jam to till this very second. I like to watches TV series, so maybe that is another one. Sometimes I like to listen to their soundtracks or tunes they are using and googling it. Or movies. Or my favorite artist's curated playlist on Spotify. It is amazing cos you get insights on the musicians or songs that they like to listen or whom inspire them. I like to dig them so that is another one too.
Oh, there's a world outside for you to see
It's all beyond the borderline
Two empty souls won't fill the vacancy
But you'll never know until you try
