Here goes nothing...

Well, after countless blog attempts, dozens of silly blog names, thematic ambivalence, and all of the other confusion that accompanies the most free-for-all type of journalism - i'm doing this for real. Why try again? Because I love writing, I love clicking away at the keys, and I love picking a song to play while I do so. 

Anyone who knows me well, knows that music is a constant and loyal fixture in my life. One thing that I could never live without, is a playlist and my headphones. Life without a soundtrack, what a sad thought. Since I can remember, my life has been a series of daydreams, car rides, journal entries and moments all accompanied by the perfect song. I wish I could remember all of the songs that have taken my breath away, but unfortunately, in the age of technology, a crashed computer or scratched mixed CD can mean music casualties - songs that you may never remember to play again. I get told I say "this is my favourite song"  too much, but I don't care, because one song and the feeling it gives you can mean for those kind of strong emotions. That one song might not be your favourite forever, but in that instant, that second where all you want to do is have somewhere to go so that you can plug in your iPod and listen to it, over and over again, it sure feels like it is. And what a great feeling. This little site will hopefully be a chance for me to spread the love, emotion and pure bliss that comes from hearing one of those songs.

  1. So, this is how it all started? Very cool. While I don't share all of your musical tastes, I do share a lot of them, and I love the way you present these songs. In the short while that I've followed, I have heard nine songs that I liked, from seven bands that were previously unheard of by me. I've personally passed your blog on to three of my music snob friends, that love to be the one in their group of friends to be in the know about obscure, new bands. Whether or not they've paid any attention, I don't know. You know how music snobs are. If they didn't discover it, it wasn't worth discovering.

    Anyhow, keep up the great work.
