Music That Brings Back Memories

Music is a big influence in my life. I have quite a few songs and albums that have defined my life & moments in my life. Whether is my love life, my anxiety phase, when I felt I was emotionless, music really came in for the save. So when I hear certain songs, or thoughts of certain lyrics I am quick to put my Spotify subscription to use on my iPhone to jam to whatever song I want to at that given moment. I am a big fan of headphones, so I probably will do a review of a few of my favorites, as I absolutely own about 12 pairs of headphones. Trust I know, a bit obsessive right? But if you love music as much as I do, you would see why.

Anyways, today’s music story I want to share is more of my love of music as whole and the battle between The Backstreet Boys and Nsync. I am big fan of The Backstreet Boys, c’mon who does love the songs, “Everybody” “Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely” “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” “I Want It That Way” “As Long As You Love Me”. Well I think this was my first experience with enjoying a boy group/band out of the realm of “Boyz II Men” is which is amazing.

And then out nowhere comes Nsync in which I was super hating on, I will not lie. I was caught in the battle that you had to choose a team. But my music taste burst open, when Nsync released, “No Strings Attached”. This is probably one of favorite albums all times, I can probably say it’s in my top 25 favorite albums of all times. With amazing songs such as “Bye Bye Bye” “No Strings Attached” “Digital Get Down” “Just Got Paid” “Space Cowboy”.

I just love this album so much. The energy and music composition was just top tier. It’s crazy because this was an album I admitted to a girlfriend I loved and we enjoyed relating to group and the music. So it’s crazy every time I listen any of the songs, I can’t help but think of her. So I guess that’s something I have to live with. At first it was (tough) as a guy from Bronx, New York to say, hey I enjoy music from Nsync, when it came out at the time, but this album/music taught me, the meaning of good music is just good music. Good music is worth enjoying. And to add more flavor to it all, their music videos were amazing and sold the songs a million times over.

HEART BREAK

As the story was all about joy…then came the heart break, and the song “Gone” was just so sad and expressed me losing the one of the loves of my life, my girlfriend at the time. I am not going to lie, I think this song made me cry as well. There was so many emotions building up and it was just there. To this day it gives me goose bumps, it’s a really good song. It’s definitely a good break up / heart ache song to add to a playlist.

I hope you enjoyed my story…shares yours with me, I would love to read it.
