Despite the decline in the quality of newer music, (or the fact that I’m outgrowing new sounds), I still enjoy music of all genres. I watch the Grammys, AMAs, VMAs, and others yearly. It’s a part of me, it’s in me, it is me.
Now we as humans are all different. Some of us like sports, some of us don’t. It was unusually beautiful this past weekend for the winter and some didn’t care to go outside. I know folks that won’t watch television or go out to eat. But guess what, everyone loves some sort of music. It is the universal language, the language of the people.
Connecting with someone is much easier through music and the love of it. You may not know all the songs, words or artists. But you like the sounds, how it makes you feel now and the first time you heard it. There are songs you absolutely love and those that irritate you to hear repeatedly. It is a common thread that bonds us.
This is indeed an important time for musicians. Our nation and world are at a crossroads. We need these artists to stay innovative, thinking, writing, singing and recording. Unity can be alive through sound.
So continue to play your music, dance to it and sing in the shower. I can almost guarantee someone else loves it.
