Music is an important part of my life, and I have a very eclectic taste in the music I listen to. I enjoy music for a variety of reasons: it may be the melody and/or lyrics, because it’s challenging and intellectually demanding, maybe it’s a soundscape that creates/reinforces a particular mood, or simply because it’s a perfect song (which can’t be improved) that gives you goosebumps every time you hear it. The reasons could go on, and there’s such a variety of platforms and technology from which music can be consumed now!
My posts in the [Music] category on this site will give you the idea, as will the fact that a Barry Manilow album is one of my favourites of the 2000s decade. I’m not one to shy away from a particular group or musician simply because some might consider that choice as ‘uncool’ to like.
