What’s your favourite artist? What’s your favourite song? What’s your favourite genre of music? You can answer all of those questions, but there are no correct or wrong answers, the truth is, everyone likes at least one type of music! Whether it be rap, R&B, soul, or anything else you will all have your own reasons. Admit it, we’ve all had a moment when we’ve thought that a song has been written especially for how we feel, that every word and every lyric exactly describes that moment. It is bound to happen more than once because as people we share the same experiences and the same emotions; whether that being head over heels in love or feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders.
So imagine the world without music? Imagine the abnormality of it? There would be no ‘X-Factor’ no dance; no birds singing in the trees, the world would be in silence. Think of the times nothing can describe you better than a song, no one would find out, no one would be different. Music is a big part of youth life with the i-pods, MP3’s and You Tube, these things have become phenomenon’s, and there is no one I know that is without some type of musical background!
