Do you identify with your genre of music?
What I mean to say is that when you are listening to a particular genre or an artiste, then do you feel the emotion of that song within you? Sometimes I think that most of the bands which have shot to fame are not simply because they write good melodies or great lyrics … its because their target group can identify with the emotion underneath the song.
Do you not want to listen to a specific genre depending on your emotion?
Think about it in this way … a fan of Marilyn Manson, would most likely be wearing gothic makeup, would have had a troubled teenage life, feels unduly wronged … a fan of DJ Tiesto or Paul Oakenfield would love to dance to a good tune and definitely loves a smooth life … Linkin Park listeners would have a pent up frustration within themselves, occassionally wanting to shout out against the system.
So whats your groove?
