    I just dont listen to music, or experience it. I play guitar, bass and keyboards and I m immersed in it. In another world, another universe. There is no feeling other then true love that comes close.

    It Takes Me Away

    Dancing, singing, hand dancing, moving to or even just feeling the beat or smiling or crying to the words, music is my whole life.

    I Love Music

    Super casual music listeners. That's most of the people in the world. And you have to understand, that's why Top 40 radio exists. It's not there for people who seek out music and who love music~ Michael Stipe

    The Rhythm Within.....

    I feel the beat throbbing within me. The heavy bass makes me want to stay my hips back and forth in a seductive vibe. I want to stretch my arms out from my body and over my head. My hair is draped over one eye and I lick my lips as my body goes lower and lower. My mid-section...

    Can You Feel It?

    If there is one thing that irks me, it's when people tell me a song is good because of it's beat. I don't know how many people I've come across that never listen to the song. They never experience it. I love just laying down, or even sitting at my desk, just listening to the...

    Every note, tone, bass drop,

    and riff can trace the innermost crevices of our soul. Sometimes music can stab us right through the heart with the use of certain notes and rhythms.

    I always feel like I experience music

    but definitely when I'm trying to fall asleep and I'm listening to music I come so close to putting myself in the music :) it's like I can see myself in a place where the music would be and get to feel all the emotions hahah. Is it just me? music is amazing
