So, I just got finished re-reading one of my favorite books. Its called; "Just Listen." It covers a lot of material and has different side stories but one of the key things the book focuses on is the power of music. It decribes music as a constant. When people change or life changes, the songs that were played within your life don't change and the memory that connects with each song doesn't change. Making it super powerful. Music also connects people together. It gives them something to agree about and discuss. One of the main characters said that when sharing his music, he was enlightening people. He was enlightening them with good music from different genres. He was opening their eyes to maybe songs or music people don't normally hear or aren't on the radio 24/7. Thats what I am deciding to do. Some artists you may have heard of before, but on the off chance you haven't, I'm going to share with you a list I composed for a friend I enlightened today. First, I'll give you songs from certain artists. Then, I'll give you just artists that I pretty much like all of their music.
