Do you? Do you use music as the soundtrack to your life? I do.
‘Cigarettes After Sex’ for quiet ‘Netflix and chill’ type evenings with my love, James Brown for changing the bed-sheets (the most hated job in this hot weather, along with vacuuming the stairs), The Smiths for cooking (or the radio), Old-school hip hop for the car, Beethoven or Bach while I work (sometimes a bit of Dvorak if I feel cray-cray), The Pretenders and Bowie while getting ready to go out and Kate Bush or Ella Fitzgerald when I feel sad or contemplative.
Oh, the world of music is so wide, so beautiful.
Memories too come to me ready-tracked with songs from the past; a song can take me to a specific moment in time just as efficiently as a time-machine would.
Music goes with different types of food and drink too. I could never listen to Ella Fitzgerald while drinking beer. I associate her strongly with wine, occasionally with whiskey.
Beethoven or Bach requires tea, of course.
Please don’t run away from this blog with the idea that I’m an expert on classical music – far from it – I just can’t work while there is music with a singing track. The words throw me off-base. I have found the tracks I like on Spotify on the basis ‘not too fast, not too slow, not too riotous, not too sad’.
Nor am I an expert on any other kind of music. I just love it.
How about you? Are there some songs that resonate with you and bring to mind a time or place (or person more likely)? Are there types of music you enjoy at specific times in your life and not others?
Tell me a story, post me a song 😀
1996: October 1.05pm, sitting in my tatty little Micra, outside the house of my best friend and her 5 year old daughter, having just put this in the tape player to hear it for the first time. The sun literally came out from behind a cloud and all my petty troubles and worries disappeared and I actually laughed and cried. That’s the power of music. Then I got back onto the treadmill of my life with a renewed appreciation of how ridiculous it all was.
What ARE you wearing?
I have to fess, it’s at this point in just about every blog I do containing a Blueberry release that I go look at her Flickr… it’s because there are so many options and interesting bits that I’d miss some if I were to attempt to sum it up myself. So, in the words of the Blueb…
