go here I recently asked you about if you’d want a post about music, since that’s a big part of who I am. I don’t go a day without opening my Spotify. My “journey” in music has varied a lot throughout the years, and my musical taste is way different than it was for five years ago.
As a kid, I used to listen to whatever my parents listened to, obviously, but I remember that one of my first favorites within music was Kelly Clarkson. I adored her and listened to her songs for years and even attended her gig on the first row. In junior high-school, I had both a rap-phase and a house-music phase. In the beginning of junior high, I only listened to like Drake, Nas and old-school rap artists, haha! In the middle of junior high I started listening to house music _a lot_, which began with Avicii releasing the hit “Levels”, does anyone remember, haha!? I got hooked so badly that house music was the only musical genre I listened for a couple of years.
At the very end of junior high I got tired of the endless drops and the similarity of every house-song, and started to make some research about other musical genres. I started off with Matt Corby (and thought he was so hipster at the time, haha) and started to discover other great artists within that genre. Going to gymnasium also changed the way I looked at music. It was a art/music-oriented school, so I got very influenced by different genres and discovered new features within music that I hadn’t hear of before. First year in college was pretty much about discovering songs and artists, but I specially got hooked on Janelle Monáe. Her voice and sound was so different of what I’ve listened to before, and her records made such a different impact on me in so many ways. She is a pure talent and goddess, and I’m so happy that I got to see her live on Flow Festival in 2014.
After the Janelle Monáe phase, I’ve discovered lots of new artists and bands and I have more or less found my favorites within music. Right now I’d say that the my favorites at the moment are Beck, Tame Impala, Mark Ronson, Foo Fighters, M83, etc. The songs on my spotify playlists vary a lot, but I love that every song has it’s own thing and doesn’t resemble any other song.
I see every playlist, every song and every record as a piece of art, and I see that there is much more depth in the songs than just the melodies and the lyrics. As I said, I don’t go a day without opening my Spotify, I don’t go a day without discovering a new song and I would literally be nothing without music.
