Snapshot Five: Music Flashback
The meaning of music to me, depends on the genre. Rap music and hip hop to me, is the music to workout to, or to listen to while playing video games. Classical music and piano music, is music for relaxing, calming, or to help me sleep. Most importantly, I see music as an escape from the moods or situations that I'm in. The genre of music that means the most to me? Well, I don't think I can say that I have one particular genre that I can honestly say means the most to me. Ever since I was a little boy, my mother stressed the importance of enjoying all types of music. My mom can play the piano, so I've always loved listening to her play. If I had to pick one current musician that I could say I like the most, it would be Kanye West. Yes, I may be the only one in the class that likes his music, but I'd like to tell you why I like his music before you jump to judge. It started around this time last year during my senior year of track. Our team was practicing and since our track is around our football field, there is a sound system in the press box. So one day I decided that I could hook my phone up to the speakers and play music during practice, and that's exactly what I did. It was the greatest idea since sliced bread. The album that I decided to play was Kanye West's new album, The Life of Pablo. We listened to the album on repeat until state that season, and I hold it very close to my heart because whenever I hear a song off that album, I remember everything that happened during that season, good times and bad.
