Change Sucks, Music Doesn't
I started this blog with the sole purpose of writing about music whenever, and however I wanted to. It's not a job, no one pays me and I come and go as I please. Not that I would turn away a few bucks to do this for a living (subtle hint there) but it was never the intended purpose for starting it up. Music, and obviously writing about music, has always been a source of calm and positivity in my life. I don't see that changing anytime soon. And speaking of change...
Recently I was given some news that affects my life in a profound way. Let me make it clear that my health is fine, family is fine and come to think of it, everything's fine. The change in my life wasn't my doing and it was unwanted, but hey...I'll live. It did however get me thinking about some of my favorite songs which deal with tough decisions, change and so on. So here's the list I came up with. If I wrote this piece 10 different times, I'm sure the songs on it would be different each time as well. This however was the original list I was able to come up with. I'm curious to know what you think of my choices as well as knowing what yours would be. Have at it!
