Music has been a blessing to humans since we can remember and we have been advancing ever since. We are lucky to be able to carry and listen to music whenever we want as long as we have our cell and headphones. Some use music as a stress reliever and some simply just love it. So, let me tell you how music changed my life entirely.

` There are so many genres of music and when you find the one you love it brings happiness. Growing up music was always fun but I didn’t fall in love with it until sophomore year.  I always used to listen to hiphop/rap but when my friend showed me Pink Floyd my eyes and ears had been opened to possibilities I never knew existed. Of course I knew what classics were I grew up with it but never appreciated it. My friend put on Shine On You Crazy Diamond and he told me “just listen”. I closed my eyes and listened nothing was the same after that. I felt the music flow through my body and connect with every atom. It was a euphoric experience i’ve never felt before. From there on out I spent hours upon hours searching old music and immediately fell in love with 60s and 70s music. I had come to realize that the music I had been listening to wasn’t real it had no meaning it was just awful.

Music had become a necessity. I couldn’t go longer than four hours without listening to music. If I lost my headphones I would have a panic attack. Music was my stress reliever and source of happiness. When I listen to music it’s as if i’m in a different world “my happy place”. Certain songs would fit certain emotions it was like I had discovered something so beautiful I could never let go. The crazy thing is that I had been listening to music for years and never listened to like I do now. Pink Floyd was that band that changed music forever for me. There music put me in a trance and that was an experience I craved from there on out. Music is my escape, my happiness, and passion all in one.

Just because you don’t listen to older music does not mean you can’t experience the same thing I have. Everyone is there own person and has there own likes and dislikes according to their inner self and you too can go through this once you find what truly suits you. Not many people anymore listen to older music but that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten. People are now coming up with more and more genres as we move on. One experience I haven’t gotten to do yet is going to a concert and hearing live music. The younger generations have made concerts a culture and its unfortunate I haven’t had the money to do so and neither have many others but I will experience this one day. One problem teens experience is being judged for what kind of music they listen too. Unfortunately this won’t ever stop but don’t let others opinions stop you from listening to what makes you happy. Everyone is different and embrace that because it’s up to you to be happy. So, after reading this what are you going to do? Listen to the music that you want to! Close your eyes and JUST LISTEN!
