Opinions regarding what makes good music vary hugely from person to person. To me, good music is music that makes me feel something. Joy, anger, excitement, anything. Books are for thinking, as are movies to some extent. But music, for me, exists to make me feel. It's played a huge part in my life, even indirectly leading me to my True Love, writing. Long story LOL.
Artists I'm currently mad for:
- Radiohead, first, last, and always. They saved my life (another long story), and changed it for the better.
- Patrick Wolf, who IMO has brought a new sort of purity back to music.
- Larrikin Love; rough-edged, barbed, and beautiful mix of musical styles, with some dark and chilling lyrics.
There are more, of course, but I could go on all day and not be done, so I'll spare you :D
Now tell me, what's on your iPod? What makes you laugh, or cry, or dance around your bedroom? What music has been important to your life? I want to know!
