But seriously when someone says “Hey you should listen to this song, I think you’ll really like it” you totally should. Because even if you don’t like it, the song means something to them, and they care enough to share it with you.
I’m kind of sad that CDs and Vinyls have lost their popularity. Personally I enjoy the feeling of opening up a new album and watching it play right in front of me.
I also feel that it gives the album more life, rather than just being something that’s floating around on the internet.
*Before the main act even comes on stage, there is usually that interlude of music to help pump the fans up
*The first slow song that causes everyone to turn on their lights and wave their arms
*The song(s) that literally everyone in the audience knows so you can clearly hear everyone singing along. This makes it even more special when the artist stops singing for a moment but the audience is able to keep it going
*The (first) ending, before any thoughts of an encore are mentioned
*The encore. The crowd and musicians are already so amped up, it’s just a perfect way to end the night.
if someone tells you their favourite song or album, and speaks passionately about it, you better fucking cherish it and damn well listen to it. it will tell you things about the person they aren’t ready to fully express.
