For the longest time, I felt like I'd kind of fallen out of love with music. Maybe fallen out of love is too strong but I was definitely uninspired by it which for me is just crazy as its been the one factor in my life for as long as I can remember that gave me more inspiration than anything.
I felt that I was just listening to the radio and I really felt nothing. Don't get me wrong I'm not at all anti-top40, I'm the biggest pop fan you'll find. I wasn't not liking the music because it was commercial and popular it was that I just didn't 'love' anything that I was hearing. Fast forward to a month or so ago and I fell head first down a Youtube tunnel of music playlists and I've never been the same since.
The music that I found is just a load of dreamy goodness, I feel more inspired now than I have in a super long time. I feel I finally found music that I connected to again and I can't tell you how good that feels.
I think I just got lazy with my music choices. Sometimes it feels like now there is so much music about with YouTube, Spotify etc all for free that I sort of let 'them' these electronic devices, dictate what songs I listen to and just give in. But I forgot that's not how it use to be. Back in those 'MySpace days' I used to sit for hours trailing through new music, old music, unsigned bands and that's when I was most inspired by music.
I think I forgot that music doesn't really mean anything to you unless it connects, you know? And to find that connection sometimes you've got to seek it out for yourself...
So that's why all of a sudden there is a surge in these music posts on my blog but I really, really hope that your enjoying these sounds too.
As always send me links to what your loving too....
This band and their music is giving me so much life at the moment.....
