I don't talk about music a lot here, I always forget to soundtrack my posts and never think to write extensively about it. I think it's down to not feeling as informed about it as I do fashion. Now I'm not a fashion expert by any means but I read it, absorb it, rant on about it and live it to some extent every day. But then, music is a big vice of mine. I spend a lot of money on it (Spotify, festivals, gigs) I like to tinkle around on a beautiful acoustic that my Dad bought me, and love just lying and listening to my latest favourites. So what is it? Why would I describe myself and blog about being a fashion lover but not music?
I think, and bear with me, it's the connotations of a person's music choices that put me off. So in some people's view if you like One Direction you have no taste, if you like Rihanna you hate Chris Brown, if you like Joni Mitchell you're a sap, if you like Ed Shereen...well you don't really like music? And I just proved myself right. I may turn my nose up at fans of Adele and Michael Buble and dismiss them as just people who listen to music and not love it, but who am I to say? Where is that open minded approach I apply to peoples style choices?
So, in a vague conclusive way; I believe music boxes people in more than fashion. If you change your music taste all the time you're seen as not a true fan, if you listen to lots of different types you're seen as not a real music lover whereas fashion is all about change, integration and the culmination of different tastes. But please, feel free to disagree?
At the moment I am listening to:
I Blame Coco-Self Machine
Crystal Castles-Crystal Castles
Louis Armstrong-What a wonderful world
Franz Nicolay-Luck and Courage
Lana Del Ray-Video Games
This is all of course laymans theory but, box Away!
