Recently, a close friend of mine and I were playing a game -- just a simple game where we asked each other random questions.
I asked him, "What's something you couldn't live without and why?"
He answered, "Music, because everything I've ever thought, felt, or lived by was...
During a recent conversation with a dear friend, the subject of music “playlists” came up. To be more specific, we had a brief discussion on how the exchange of playlists is the “mixtape” of this generation. (Nostalgia Alert: If you’re not familiar with mixtapes, then...
That they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now
Back beat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
Have you ever noticed how when you put your earphones in nothing else in the world matters?... The house could be burning down around you and you wouldn't care... Music is a universal outlet for EVERYONE... When your stressed or having a bad day what's the first thing you do...
The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Wu-Tang Clan, Dr Dre, Eminem, Sublime, Barenaked Ladies, Tito Rojas, Frankie Ruiz, Limp Bizkit, Korn, Linkin Park, Ivy Queen, Aventura, Journey, Chicago, Whitney Houston, BoyzIIMen, Ja Rule, Jay-Z, Destiny's...
and it's hurting my ears but it's drowning out the noise in my head."
I texted this to my cousin the other night and it couldn't be more true. When everything in me is screaming that I'm a loser and a failure, music takes it away for a while.
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight
Somewhere deep inside me
I hold a picture of a time long gone
A time of ease and simple pleasures
And days in shadows not so long
Now with my mind Im struggling
Holding on to what I believe
Listen to the fragments...
When you listen to that little piece of music
When you play the strings of your guitar
When you sing along to that song
DOn't it just bring you to a place farther than this ground you set foot on
If you are a believer
When you listen to your music
You'll hear your soul whisper...
... The song that introduced me to Ronnie James Dio...I was 13 or 14...With my cousin on the driver's seat, summer time, all windows down, driving along the coastline of the mediterranean with the breeze brushing my face and hair...It is perhaps one of the best moments of my life...
I love punk music, and I gladly take all the misconceptions that come along with it.
"Oh you mean like green day?" "All you do is get drunk" all that kind of stuff but no. I'm what I consider myself to be a true punk all around. Fav bands, the adict, Subhumans, conflict just to...
