When I woke up yesterday (probably morning for my friends in the U.S.), I was a little irritated. It's that I remember my wife saying to me "Somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed..". So, I tried to compose myself while checking for some email from my wife or friends. I opened the window and it was humid outside and I know I'm going to be miserable night.  I grabbed my phone and plugged the speakers and I was playing Jack Johnson while wondrin' what to do. Slowly, my mood began to lighten up and I just noticed that I was already singing along.  I guess that's what other people call getting your groove back.

Music affects majority of my mood, it will either help me or make me worst. So far listening to my favorite artist helps me relax and I bet that my wife would be enjoying the music of Jack Johnson and Ben Harper. I listen to all types and genre of music and I know how to appreciate a good music. For me, you can have the dvd and television just leave me the radio or my phone. I grew up in a family of musicians ( that's on my mom's side of the family) and the 80's music was my first and still favorite. I just wish that the musicians or bands nowadays would still make quality music like back in the 80's. Bands nowadays no longer have that spark and creativity of the 80's bands. I have some handful bands that I can consider buying their records and listening to it but other than that.. ummm... NO WAY!! I'd rather listen to a jackhammer or a roaring ferrari engine than to listen to their gut-tearing screams and ear busting music. If I could turn back the clock, I wouldn't hesitate going back to that wonderful, energetic and colorful era.. the 80's. I have nothing against other genre but I just found out that you can form a band as long as the members can scratch the living hell of a guitar and they can all scream.

Music speaks a billion language and if we just try to listen and understand it, we could learn a lot from it. Where have all the good bands go? Wherever they are now, they will always stay in my heart.. =
