It is amazing what music can do for you, what it can make you feel.
Music is very important to me and it always has been.
When I get the question “What music do you listen to?” I tend to struggle.
I listen to a lot of different types of music but my preferred genre is Rock/Metal.
But there’s days when I listen to Avicii and other days when I listen to Nordman. (Swedish folkband)
It is all depending on the day and what I’m doing but I like all the music I listen to and I really don’t think there’s any reason to put yourself in a folder and say “This is who I am so this is the music I listen to”
Why would you want to limit yourself like that? Just because you “look like a certain way” doesn’t mean you have to follow the stream and listen to the music that fits your look.
If that makes sense…
I often get told that I’m into Rock/Metal, only because the way I look so when I tell people that my favorite band is a Swedish folkband I get surprised looks.
Work colleague: “I doubt I’d like the music you listen you”
Me: “Ah, so you don’t like Avicii?”
Jaw dropped “Ehm, yes I do like Avicii.”
There you go then!
To be fair, I only say that to prove a point. I do prefer Rock/Metal most days but I just don’t want people to assume that they know me when they don’t.
