Music is Awesome
What is music and why does everyone listen to it? This question always
come to mind when someone says, â€œlisten to this.â€ We as a culture have always had
music, but my big question is who decides what music is. Is music just a bunch of noise
that we find pleasurable? I believe that music is our way of expressing ourselves
through an art form. There are many forms of art, and music is one of them. As time
goes on, we as a culture create new genres of music. There are hundreds of music
genres but as time goes on generations forget and then renew the old music.
I feel that music affects everyday life because in nature we hear the wind, birds,
talking. These are just some forms of music that our ears hear, but we also
watch movies and television that includes popular music of the time like rap, hip hop,
country, funk, Polka, Jazz. Most people donâ€™t think about this, but if we had no music in
our lives, life would be dull. Music as a whole inspires many people every day. We have
music in every aspect of life.
Every generation before thinks the music of the day is bad. I have to say many
people are correct, but as I get older, I realize what they mean. Music is something that
is always changing. Music genres have ups and downs which means they become
popular and then they slowly die as something new comes along. There are too many
genres of music to name them all, but if you ask people of today what genres are
popular right now they probably would say, â€œrap, hip hop, rock â€œnâ€ roll, punk, and
country music.â€ Many forget the classical music like Mozart, and jazz, disco, techno,
and many more. These types of music are either popular or not due to who is listening
to it. It sometimes amazes me that people always listen to music that is popular and
when itâ€™s no longer popular they forget about it.
How music inspires me is, I like listening to it. It helps me relax and concentrate.
It makes me feel better when I feel sad. In general it helps me release stress. It also has
a way to make me feel free spirited, and it inspires me to dance and sing. This is why I
feel music is important in everyday life.
Music is always going to be here. It depends what kind is popular. Iâ€™m positive
the music of today is not what will be popular in five to ten years. My parents always tell
me that when I have kids I will know what they mean when they say this music is
garbage. I always tell my parents I wonâ€™t say that to my kids because music is just a
thing of the past, future, and present. It will go on even after my death.
