I have had this idea for while now but feel that I am ready to present it
We all listen to our music and what we hear varies from person to person and what they know about the track:
I think also we all have our own fields of expertise and we have got to know about the music we know about through various sources:
Therefore I think it would be interesting to share some of this knowledge on the forum.
I think there are two main ways we can do this
- Actual stories which have been gleaned from our reading experience etc about an artist
eg I have long believed the myth that David Bowie's "Prettiest Star" was written about
Marc Bolan and he image that he presented to the world when in fact it is a Story about David;s first wife Angi Bowie and her lifestyle choices and personality.
In knowing the truth about a song often has made me hear it in a different light and have a fuller understanding of it................indeed it has often sent me off to find out and explore an artist's more fully.
2. A story that you have which is connected with when you first heard a particular song or the times it reminds you off.....................In 2010 and before people often talk about popular music being "The Sound Track To Their Lives " so perhaps members would like to let us in on some of the scenes from the films of their lives and tell us about he soundtrack !
I think that this has plenty of possibility and might draw one of two new members in a little more to the site as they tells us about their experiences thoughts and it may make them feel more connected with MD !
