Previous Entry Share Next Entry

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN ON 3/20/06, sometime in the evening.

So I decided to share with you all the music I've been listening to over the last few weeks. I love music. God, I just do not know what I would do without it. If I had to be stranded on an island, take anything you want from me, but leave me my music. That old question about whether you would rather be blind or deaf... I've finally arrived at an answer. Honestly, I would rather be neither. But if I had to pick, I'd have to choose being blind. My music is my life & if I was no longer able to listen to it, you may as well consider me dead cause that's what I'd feel like inside.

That about sums up the soundtrack of my life here in Namibia. A lot of you back at home often ask me if I need/ want some music. Well yes... and yes. Music is always welcome & always needed. We don't have a TV here, so much of my free time is spent listening to music. That means I can go through all of these cds in a matter of a week or two. Soooo I could definitely use an increase to my music collection.

I made this list to provide you with an idea of the kind of stuff I like. But feel free to send me anything you want. I'm always open to new music. As a matter of fact, a lot of the music I love these days I was introduced to by other people (hence the thank you's in parentheses). So spread the love, spread the music. I'm all for whatever you want to send me. *Except rap... hehe*

Current Mood: happyhappy
Current Music: GOMEZ- Free To Run
