So over the past month I stumbled upon a website called 8Tracks. I've never been more in love with a website. It's kinda like Pandora or IHeartRadio but it's play lists made by other users. You're able to follow other users and listen to their play lists. There is literally a mix for any mood your in or any type of music you're into.
This past month I've been listening to a lot of music and I have become an avid believer that music can help anything. Don't get me wrong, I've always loved music...all kinds. But lately, I've found it therapeutic. Over the past few weeks I've found a new love for folk/pop/indie music. I've been hitting repeat to songs by Missy Higgins, Adele, Kate Nash, Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, and Tori Amos (I've always loved Tori though lol). Something about the way they sing, or write their music....it feels more real. It's not mainstream and hasn't been written by some song writer that just gets paid for banging out cheesy songs in hope for a #1 on the radio charts.
God, I wish I could sing. I've been told I can...but honestly, I don't come remotely close to the talent some people have. Hmm...if I could sing like anyone.....it would be a toss up of Eva Cassidy, Carrie Underwood, Zooey Deschanel, and Adele. All soft, yet powerful voices.
I've deeply always wanted to walk in a bar, get on a mic and just wow a group of randoms. Just a bar, somewhere random, where there are old men in cowboy hats. Walk in wearing jeans, a tee shirt, and heels....maybe whip out a good Roy Orbison song. Ya, that would be fun. But you have to have talent to do that. My next life hopefully.
