This evening, I would like to make a post about musical influence. Music has played a role in shaping society, popular (as well as unpopular) culture, and individuals lives, for centuries. In our advanced society today, music touches anyone and everyone, most people will talk about songs they remember from when they were small children. Some of you might say; "HAHA NO WHAT ABOUT POOR PEOPLE IN AFRICA AND OTHER PLACES WITHOUT RADIO!?!". Ah well, good point, not everyone in our world today does own a radio, however music still manages to impact daily life. Music is portrayed in its most pure form, through the voices of friends and families, at gatherings or mealtimes. So even though someone in a jungle tribe of the amazon who has never seen or heard a radio in their life, will still know the value, and importance, of music. It's safe to say, music in performance to simple appreciation, is one of the few things that connects human beings. I mean TRULY connects us. All people know the art form, and in some way are impacted by its existence in our lives. Granted, we maybe cannot all agree on a single style of music, but there you have it. :]
I have developed my musical tastes over a great many years, and I would say I'm insatiable when it comes to the stuff. I am by no means the expert critic, performer, or connoisseur, but I would still like to share some of the stuff that I find enjoyable. That disclaimer aside, I have a wide range of likes and dislikes, some may not agree but if we all did, it would make for a boring life.
I'll end up picking some older/newer bands/performers and doing some more in depth reviews on them, so stick around :p.
