“Music is Magic. Magic is Life”
Music is magic. Music can bring joy to your life when you are feeling down and the other way round. The best way to make peace with you for the moment is by listening to your favourite melodies.
Music is a way of life. I cannot imagine my day without music. I am addicted to it. Whether I am depressed or filled with excitement I prefer music. It pumps me up. I get that sudden inducement and directs my mind to act something wonderful.
Music is a way of expressing yourself. Not only musicians but also we listeners can express themselves through the power of music. Most of the times I get to know myself and my creations during good sounds around me. I express myself through writing whatever comes to my minds such as poems and anecdotes like the one you’re reading right now.
Music flushes down all the unnecessary elements from the mind and fills up the fresh new ideas and motives. The only thing it takes to happen is the right choice music according to the mood. For example, I am listening to The War On Drugs while writing this viewpoint of mine. I just lie down, listen to them, something cool pops up in my head and I write it down.
Change in the taste of music
Music lifts up my mood but I don’t think anyone can stick to the same sort of melodies and tunes forever. Nepali and Hindi music is what I grew up listening to. Now I seldom listen to them. This doesn’t mean that I have stopped listening to Nepali music or like that. I listen. But the only difference now is that sometimes I try to compare these songs with western music and come up with unrealistic flaws. That’s absurd, right? However, the good thing is, at least I find that music satisfying and nostalgic.
It’s been a few years now that I changed my taste towards English songs. I started with the hip-hop genre and now I am exploring the rock and metal genre. This change didn’t happen overnight. It took me a strict adherence and fondness towards what I listen for a long time now.
Moreover, the influence is necessary. My perspective in connection with something inclined me towards progressive and psychedelia. And at the same time, it changed my viewpoint and my attitude with regard to survival. At some point in my life, some incidents hit me hard (I will explain those incidents in my upcoming compositions). To deal with it and soothe my emotions/anger, I embraced music.
As time went by, music became my best friend. I happen to listen to varieties of artists during that period and to this day. Like Pink Floyd, Nazareth, Scorpions, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Steely Dan, The Cure, The War On Drugs, Pearl Jam, Yes, Fleetwood Mac, Sting, Oasis, Lana Del Rey, Porcupine Tree and many more to calm my soul and metal songs to speak my anger.
So, just listen to the beauty of music.
Make it your favourite.
