Earlier today I put on Manic Street Preacher's "Everything Must Go", after not listening to it for a long while. I bought the album in the beginning of this year when I was going through a bit of a rough patch (or more like the worst rough patch of my life), and I listened to it around that time. It's funny how it brings back the same kind of feelings as I had back then, even though I'm mostly over it by now, and how an album of great music can be almost ruined as it's almost painful to listen to. Even though some of the songs were songs that actually made me feel better back then.
Music doesn't seem to have such a big emotional impact on many people I know. They usually just want something to dance to, or background noise and so on, and some go as far as to say that if you can't dance to it, then it's crap (idiots, I know...). For me a live gig can be something incredibly moving, almost like a religious experience I guess, and there's almost nothing better than discovering some new artist or album I like. Maybe I'm just insane.
Anyone else had any similar experiences with albums, songs etc.?
Theres a few The first woman I could say I actually loved, we had 'a song' well, two. Both Stone Sour songs. There was 'Through Glass' and 'Bother'. I used to play them and sing them to her. Infact, it made her cry once, which is probably why they stick in my head. I did lose it to 'Bleed' by Meshuggah though
