Music, as it was mentioned here, is a keeper of memories. And not only about people we used to be in love with (by the way, what song was it?) or about any other people who played a very important role on some stage of our lives. We remember places. We remember adventures. We remember emotions. And we remember ourselves the way we used to be when wee listened to some songs. If you don't believe me, find in Internet the songs you listened to when you were teenager. And there will be a light sorrow and an ocean of memories from that time
Music connects and makes people closer. Have you ever been to any concert? No matter what - from symphonic to rock? Look at the audience at concerts, it is one big beating heart. And you know that these hundreds of people are now feeling the same as you and understand you like nobody else, it is like a family, despite you see them for the first time in your life and after the concert each of you will go his own way, but now you are on the sdame emotional wave, it is your world and you feel the same! And then if you have an ability to share emotions with each other......
And may be that is why young people usually belong to different fanclubs. Fan club is a parallel universe where everybody understands you. You may turn the computer on at 3 a. m. to watch your favourite band's new video and nobody will ever tell you anything about it because the whole fan club in different parts of the world without mentioning time zones is sitting at the same moment online to be the first to see the new video and to discuss it with other crazy people who is also watching the video instead of sleeping! And this is really amazing to be a part of it.
Indeed, music plays a vital role in all people's lives. Furthermore, it stimulates us and gives a foundation to our feelings. when you listen to a positive and energetic music, you become alert and happy throughout the whole day. This helps to maintain an appropriate attitude towards everything that happens around you. Personally I can't live without it and can't help listening to it literally every day.
I really like quite a few bands from your list as well. I also really like Modest Mouse, don't know if you'd like them or not but you could give it a try. Usually the songs that end up becoming popular because of their repetition fade away quickly because they get annoying more quickly. While it is true that everyone knows the words after 2 choruses, after about 20x of hearing the song, you're done with it.I also like electronica/pop music. I don't really like the music that everyone else listens to. I think it's overplayed and doesnt really have any meaning. My top 3 bands/artists are Owl City, Hellogoodbye, 3OH! :)
My favorites from your list has to be Oasis (all-time favorite), Arctic Monkeys and the Vaccines
I'd guess that, like me, you're British. It seems a lot of those bands (Beady Eye, Franz Ferdinand, Libertines) never made it out of Britain when they should have done . The only band on your list I don't particularly like is The Smiths, I could just never get into them Favourite bands /Recommendations: Stone Roses - You should really check them out if you like Oasis, they're Oasis' biggest influence and Liam only decided to form a band after seeing them live, most of their music has strong influences. They only have two albums but they're wildly different from each other. Their first created the Britpop movement and their second dived into proper grungy hard rock
I'm a music lover so I listen to everything literally without complaining about it but I do have my favorite music. I like opera a lot like Josh Groban or Andrea Bocelli. I like punk rock a lot like Green Day or Linkin Park or Marilyn Manson or Tonic. I like pop a lot too. I like Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, boy bands, Cherice, and more. I love classical music too. I like the violin and the piano and the guitar. Anything with those sounds will turn me on. I like trance music as well. I like folk and blues as well. I like Indie music as well. I just love everything really. also I love a mixture of music. Everything from Classical music to Blues and singers like Dusty Springfield through to singers like Debbie Harry. I also love Rock Music and I used to sing alot of this type of genre when I fronted my own band.
I like pop music. According to British musicologist Simon Frith, characteristics of pop music include an aim of appealing to a general audience, rather than to a particular sub-culture or ideology, and an emphasis on craftsmanship rather than formal "artistic" qualities. Music scholar Timothy Warner said it typically has an emphasis on recording, production, and technology, rather than live performance; a tendency to reflect existing trends rather than progressive developments; and aims to encourage dancing or uses dance-oriented rhythms. It how to say calms me down and Troye Sivan is the best one to listen.
My music tastes are changing every year of my life. When i was 13 years old i was listening to music that is similar to those that bikers are likely ti listen, but after some years my musical tastes have been changing . In my twenties i still was listening to rock music, for some time in my life i was suggesting that i am rock man and someone has told me that i am anarchist , because u was not listening to anyone. Last years i was mad about rap musician, like Lil Wayne , Nicki Minaj and Drake. Now i am coming back to the song i liked when i was a teenager.
I like and am drawn to all kinds of music, jazz, rock, pop, country, classical anything as long as it is good. I admit to being drawn to works of great cultural and historical significance and import and works that show the evolution of music as an art form. But I still have to feel it emotionally. It doesn't matter how may experts tell me how brilliant Mozart or Bob Dylan were or are, if I did nor feel them viscerally, I would not waste my time. Life is too short. Appreciating music in different genres is hard, it takes time and patience , things that are often in short supply. I remember when I first heard Hip Hop, I hated it, now I love it. It is worth it to explore as many genres and eras as possible. I hope I am not a snob but I do admit that I don' t understand people who say they only listen to music from the 90's or the 50's or whatever era. I could never limit myself that way. If I had to pick one music to listen to for the rest of my life though, it would be jazz , either Monk or Miles. I could be reasonably happy with those two alone but I am more than overjoyed that I don't have to limit myself that way.
