Getting To Know Me...Musically That Is

Over the existence of my life, I have been in pursuit of who I am. Like most people, we try & try to figure out where we are coming from, where we are going to & what are we here for in the mean time. As I look back at my life & the extraordinary events that have helped to shape me into the man I am in pursuit of becoming, I see how music has played a SIGNIFICANT role in my life. Now it just may be me but personally music, at times, has been a major influence in helping me to make my mind up on a particular direction that I want to live.

 I am an extremely complicated individual even though I'm also a simple being. I love like others, I laugh like others, I cry like others & I get down & dirty like others & yet there are plenty parts of me that leave others shaking their heads & walking away in dismay. Its not that I'm a bad person...just different. Matter of fact, thanks to Alanis for coining THE perfect description, I've said for years that "I'm a fabulous freak of nature"! Odd in all the right ways & far from boring. I have a tendency to stick my foot in my mouth & chew vigorously & yet I've got a huge heart & LOVE love & do my best to never hurt anyone & to also do right by nature!!

Recently, I made up a list of my "LIFE SONGS" that either helped in shaping me or told a perfect story almost from within my life diary. Now I know that we ALL can think back to those kinds of songs & I do mean ones that mean more then just a great song to us. Songs that bring us to our knees or that rip out our hearts. Songs that play in the back ground as we make love or make us want to jump into the sack. Songs that are so good the rhythm pulses through our veins & we can't help but to shake, dance & groove each & every time we hear them. Hear are 3 lists of my life songs split into categories that fit this blog to a tee.
