    Definite Essential

    Music is everything to me. I need it as surely as I need water and oxygen. I am always listening to music. It always makes me feel something.

    I am doing an assignment for music class. I am trying to figure out the shift music have turned for the 80s to now. I will also like insights from those who grow up during the 80s music and lived to experience the differences. Can music impact a person in such ways to change...

    Lost In The Blues

    I really don't know how any one can say that music, especially the blues, does not reach deep inside them and awaken feelings that would normally be sleeping or sheltered from their reality. For me at least, the blues seems to reach a place that no other music can find. As Albert...
