[Day 6] Life has a Soundtrack

Day 6: Your Views on Mainstream Music

I really do feel that music has the ability to sooth and nurture the soul, and that usually, the kind of music that has this kind of power has great depth. It's music that transcends time. Although powerful, mainstream music usually doesn't really have that much to say and is only around for as long as the next greatest catchy hook isn't.

My radio stays locked into the oldies these days. I love disco and classic soul - music that makes you feel good when you listen to it - music that you can always come back to. A little Prince now and then. I'm not saying that these are the only genres that have music that accomplishes this, but old school brings me peace and happiness when it fills my ears.


  1. Love love love the flashback to 11th grade. I went to see Prince in concert with my best friend, and her boyfriend. He was so far away from us, I think he was about an inch big in my view--but I can still hear him singing; "When doves fly..."

  2. Concerts are such a great experience, especially with live bands! I wish I would have gotten the chance to catch Prince when he came out to the Bay Area. Everyone was talking about how good his latest tour is.
