Music

“Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with its gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” – Hunter S. Thompson

Music has always held a huge presence in my life. (I’m sure most of you could relate.) It’s not always the words the touch me, sometimes it’s the feeling each note gives me as it’s played. I have a lot of memories with music. Not just the times when I was a child running around with two neighborhood girls thinking we were going to be the next big “girl group”, or the five years I attempted to play an instrument. (the Viola) I’m talking about the songs that remind you of happy memories, with people that you love/ have loved. Also, I am talking about all the good tunes that can change the vibes in a room, the ones that make driving a car across states upon states, so fun!

I was born to a metal head, and a hair band lover. Therefore, I grew up on those types of genres, and love them dearly. That being said, in my twenty-two years of life I have learned about other genres, and although none of them quiet hit home like Metallica and Def Leopard, I love them all. Here’s my playlists, please enjoy them!
