Thanks to you,
There is a lot of music I can't
Listen to happily anymore.
That was the way it was for quite some time after graduation. I couldn't listen to any of the music we sang and shared during those three years.
So, there was this whole folder worth of music from that period that I couldn't listen to without having to fight the urge to just run away.
Away as in anywhere.
I couldn't move on if I clung to memories.
And I couldn't listen to several of my favorites without getting all whimsical and
So, now there is this new me who's been shaping up over the past year who is always experimenting with the new genres and styles.
And it has done me good. Real good!
- Death Cab For Cutie,
- Carolina Liar,
- Sondre Lerche,
- Emma Lee,
- Iron& Wine,
- Sara Bareilles,
- Ryuichi Sakamoto,
- M.I.A [yeah, I know she's been around like for ages, but I had never checked her out earlier. And man, what a costly mistake! She's awesome!]
- Joss Stone [but I haven't gotten the hang of her yet. Any help?]
- Katie Melua
- And I'm very much and sincerely, in love with Malayalam folk songs. I guess the folk-crossover-rock band "Avial" did it for me.
- Kings of Leon
- Azure Ray
- Dixie Chicks had made a great impression on me when they'd come out yelling anti-war and anti-Bush and were boo-ed for that since everyone was pro Bush back then. They are not just any random bimbos. Na ha. And their music? I'd never really cared for country. Until I checked these ladies out. They are sooooooo good at this!
And a helluva lot much more. But the thing is, I'm showing a definite leaning towards mellower stuff. That's because I'm rooting for the Jazz and Indie camp, of course. But can anyone please yank me back to the Rock camp. I'm dying to return to the time when I was all about head bangin'. =)
*Thanks to my beautiful, out-of-this-world amazing 7 friends and all the other great friendships I've been carrying with me since my Brennen days. I love you all soooooo much that my heart breaks. In a good way. =)
