Ok, so I’m a huge fan of music and I’m feeling that with my busy life I’m not as involved as I used to be. I can remember having an anthem for almost every stage in my life. I love to dance and used to attend any party that would allow me to lose control. I also used to buy a boatload of CD’s. Huh… The last CD I bought was at Starbucks, haven’t been to HMV in years.
I don’t even know what the hits are unless I listen to the radio and I find that I really don’t like any of the top 40 songs. Maybe it’s my age. I’m watching VH1’s hip hop honours and they are honouring ‘the dirty south’. There are so many artists that I forgot about and watching this show made me realize how out of touch I am with some music. I vowed last week to start buying CD’s again starting with M.I.A’s new album. I have her first two albums but as CD’s go, I lent them out and now they are both scratched… That’s the main reason I hate CD’s man, they just get scratched up and there is nothing worse than a skipping record.
I made a list of all the concerts I’ve been to in the past five years and I think I’ve seen over thirty artists and my list is quite eclectic… From Rod Stewart to the Game, I have seen so many bands and I appreciate all types of music. I love instruments, especially horns and strings, and beautiful vocals like Bilal and Marvin Gaye. For the month of June my new thing will be to buy some new music.
On a side note, it’s been over three weeks since I have had naked toes and I must say that I like it only if I have pedicured feet on the regular.
