I recently became really burnt out on listening to music. My process in making music involves repeated listenings of my tracks/pieces so my time away from work began to involve more reading and watching TV and films. Thus I, a rabid music hound/record collector/mp3 pirate, found myself exchanging my headphones for a book on subway rides and deleting albums on my laptop to make space for my own projects.
Well, I’d like to turn that around.
I have, on occasion, been listening to music, but it tends to be unlike most of the music my peers are listening to, so I’ve been a little shy with it. So in the interest of full disclosure: here are some of my recent selections:
The Zombies – The Look of Love:
The Crystals – He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)
Mozart – Piano Concerto #24
Meatloaf – It’s All Coming Back to Me
Earl – Earl Sweatshirt [pretty damn NSFW]
Schumman – Fantasiestücke Op. 12 [Maria Yudina]
Any suggestions for tunes similar to any of these?
