Hey everyone! So as you know my hobby is music making—and I have been trying to strike out in a more professional direction in that avenue so I have been uploading a lot of my music to Spotify—I have made hundreds over the years so I am slowly remastering them and uploading them!
What’s better than sitting on a couch with a cup of tea beside you and a good book on your lap while it rains outside? Doing it while some awesome music plays in background, that’s what. I decided to go through my collection of records and tried to pick the best soundtrack for the perfect autumn day, the results are as follows:
I don’t think I’m alone when I say this: when we listen to music, we often make connections to people. A certain song, no matter how subtle the message might be in reality, can make you think of a person; maybe even one you’ve never met. This is part of what makes music so personal. For every single person in the world, one song can take on so many different meanings. Then suddenly, the music that you’ve connected to these people make them feel closer than ever. You don’t have to imagine them; you can feel their presence. That’s the magic, I think.
We’ve all been there. A visit to your hometown—or perhaps, you’ve just grown up and changed while still in your hometown—is met with mixed emotions. It’s like for every fond memory and bout of nostalgia you experience, you also experience equal parts dread and anxiety.
These days, with streaming, downloads, and all the available formats, new and old, it is quite easy for good music to fall under the radar. In that respect, it is an almost an even field, whether music is something you seriously follow or you are just a casual fan. It often happens that your pile of vinyl or CDs just grows, or those downloads and possible streaming links are overcrowding your computer.
