Ear Worm

I love music more than any THING else in this world. I could live without most things, but music is not one of them, even if I have to make it myself.

Music is one of the biggest parts of my life; not only is it my constant companion, it is fun to play with as a writer. Last year I wrote a series where nearly every word or phrase is an actual song title with its appropriate YouTube link.

Having worked in broadcast radio for two decades I was easily burnt out on “air-play” songs and have always found the deeper cuts on most albums are just so much better. On a fluke one day I came across a band called Iron and Wine. I fell immediately in love. If you read my blog often and have gotten to know me then you know I love a lot of folkish type music. I wouldn’t call Iron and Wine “folk”, but it’s close. I love this band and listen to them almost every single day. When I’m out and about I also find myself humming their tunes. They are my daily Earworm and you should definitely check them out!

    You know, i think the world take today takes music for granted sometimes. We are so used to be surrounded by it, playing it, listening to it, youtubing everything. So it was refreshing to read this appreciation for music.
