“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” Maya Angelou
I sing badly. I want to be a drummer. I wish would stick at the guitar. I used to write very bad lyrics. I was in the choir. I was also in the orchestra. I played the flute. My past boyfriends are guitarists. My pink headphones go everywhere with me. I need to go to more gigs this year.
Music is always around me. I cannot imagine life without it.
Like the cast of Glee, I find it easier to express myself through music. This doesn’t mean that I break out into song when I’m upset, ecstatic or frustrated. I lose myself – I sing, dance, cry to it (not always at the same time, I might add).
So, without further ado, here’s some songs and bands who have featured in my life:
