My music collection, as recently stated, is huge. I’ve stored all my music on mp3 format and that runs to about 51.5 GB worth of files! That’s a lot for one guy. Some of the stuff I don’t listen to much, some none at all but it’s still there. I like to have music playing all the time, other than work. I usually carry songs on my BlackBerry’s storage space and change the songs every week. I have about an 80-90 minute commute one way from my home to the office 6 days a week and what’s a better way to occupy your time than listening to music.
Lately I’ve been listening to old favourites like Van Halen, Metallica, Guns n’Roses, Deep Purple, Poison, Aerosmith, Whitesnake & Def Leppard on my phone’s memory card (what is it, a rehash of the 80s top billing for rock bands???). Some of the songs I haven’t heard in a while and they just come rushing back like an old friend who you haven’t seen in a long while. Granted that some of this bands are still big and created albums in recent years but a sense of nostalgia arises when I listen to these bands. Considering the fact that I started listening to them before I was old enough to shave or drink!
But the songs also keep the adrenaline pumping just as it was when I was 12, 13,14 or 15! Imagine a 13 year old yours truly singing ‘Walk This Way’ dripping with so much sexual innuendo, most of which he didn’t understand at that age! I was a rocker way back then and still am at 35 and will always be one. Those are the bands that I have in my BB’s memory card! Rock on dudes!
