VintageLand. Episode Two - Shadows of the Night

With just the right music, or a certain song can easily stir up one's emotions in ways you couldn't begin to describe. Just as a melody can effortlessly pull out an old memory that we've long forgotten about. Today's post is going to be all about how music could influence a person's mind, body, and soul.

I'm definitely not a music expert what so ever. I don't really follow music trends, bands or anything in particular. However, I enjoy listening to whatever music I come across to like. Music that flows seamlessly with my current mood, a song that strikes just the right chord with the listener, and lyrics are written so vividly that conjure up thousands of images in my mind. There are ALWAYS a few songs that you find yourself coming back to over the years, the ones you could never get tired of listening to. Yeah, I have a list of those types of songs as well.

I listen to a wide range of music, if you were to look at my playlist, you'd be surprised by the diversity,  different genres and time period I listen to on a daily basis. I don't like to label myself as a certain music type of girl. You could expect to find a little bit of indie and folk-rock songs from the 60s and 70s, some 80s pop hits, some country tunes, and a lot of alternative songs on my phone.

To me, there is no such thing as definite "good music' taste. People have a weird tendency to categorize certain music as cool or good, and so help me god if I were to listen to some generic bubblegum pop bands, my music taste is deemed horrible. Well, I think differently. I consider music as a way to express oneself, finding a song that you can relate to, a melody that stirs up a long-forgotten memory, or lyrics that touch your heart and soul. Regardless of the genre and artists, if you think the music is good, it is good, and no one else can say otherwise.

I'd like to share with you some of my all-time favorite songs, the ones that I find myself keep coming back to. Music that is so personal to me and brings back so many memories and late-night thoughts. So here we go...
