Ok so I was really excited for this month's homework assignment. I started writing this last week when i was stuck in the hospital before Reegan was born, but didn't get the chance to finish! Music has always been important to me, I listen to it almost constantly, whether at home really loud whilst cooking or cleaning, dancing in the mirror whilst putting on makeup, or just through headphones when out and about. I knew instantly what I was going to write about, because music is such a big part of my life and is all about emotional response for me. When a piece of music can really make me feel something, that's when I fall in love with it. It's also why I don't ever stick to one genre of music, because as long as the music makes me feel something, I'll keep listening. Whether it helps when I'm angry, or hurting, or if it makes me excited or happy, or (the best one) just completely relaxes me. When there is nothing else but me and the music, and it is beautiful.
So although the post was meant to be based around my most inspirational song, I have to talk about the whole album because it has gotten me through some really dark days, and I have never heard anything else so beautiful and romantic in my life. Type O Negative are my all time favourite band, they truly make me feel something special with this masterpiece. They may be a little before my time but I could just listen over and over. This album works for me in a lot of ways, it's great for long walks with headphones in, or relaxing with a book either in bed or in the bath, and always with lots of candles. All in all I can't recommend this enough, if you like the dark and romantic, with a hint of metal gloom thrown in.
