I heard the word music, and now I’m here!

Let me tell you what happens when we listen to music. When that first beat reaches our eardrums, they vibrate, telling our brain about yet another thing that they heard, just that this time there was a rhythm, something our brain would comprehend more easily than a normal sentence. And then once our mind gets the hang of it, its frequency matches with that of the music and it starts resonating.

So you may like this kind of music or that kind of music, but you simply cannot dislike music. Music makes us complete, music makes us human, and if I may say it out loud, a person’s taste in music is more or less enough to define his personality. And why not, after all we encounter music in all spheres of life. Our life starts with the music that we fondly call crying, although it does bring a smile on our parents’ face, then we move on to the nursery rhyme, covering the pop songs as we grow up in our teens and before we know it, we have adults fighting over Iron maiden and Metallica.

For me, music has always been surprising. I never imagined that I would develop a liking for so many kinds of music. May it be Pop or Rock, country or classical, I never had an extreme point of view for it. For me, music always had something to teach. From classical I learned the patience, which is one asset that most men don’t have. From rock I learned how to express myself, how to control (or not control) my emotions. Pop taught me the importance of love and friendship, and it was rap from which I… well… learned to speak English very fast.

Music is with you all the time, like when you take a bath and play your favorite playlist, or when you’re cooking while listening to Pink Floyd, or while driving your Tata Zica and playing Eric Clapton’s best!

What I want to convey here is that no music is bad music, unless it’s a very bad copy of some original harmony, or forcing loud words just to make it sound like a party song, which is basically a general definition of bad. Music isn’t a means to divide people, it unites people! Music brings people together (Have you ever been to an Iron maiden concert?), music brings nations together (Coke studio!), music brings the worlds together (Koi mil gaya… well, maybe not.)

So the next time you meet someone and he tells you that he likes Raps while you don’t, appreciate the fact that he does. You can’t force music on someone, let the beats do it naturally.

Oh, and also, stop pirating music, that’s the least you can do for something that’s with you whole your life!
