I LOVE music. I like it so much I sometimes think there might be something wrong with me. As a small child I played my mom's Beatles 45's on the record player--stacked up about 5 at a time and let them scratch each other to death. As a teenager I loved the 80's pop scene--but I discovered Bruce Sprinsteen aged 16 and never looked back. To me his songs are fabulous and resonate with my working class background. Haven't got his newest albumn yet, maybe that can go on my Christmas list :)
I also love country, classical, then everything from Great Big Sea to Jann Arden to Nirvana and Ronan Keating...see there is something wrong with me.
I find it drowns out the background noise that surrounds me and lets me focus on my writing. Other times I turn Avril Lavigne up loud just so I CAN'T hear the kids moaning at me.
I'm wicked--what can I say :)
