Gypsy Soul

“A gypsy soul isn’t lost and looking. A gypsy soul is one who loves movement and finding the pulse in nature and flight as a metaphor. One who thinks everything is music. One who knows and holds an inward and therefore outwardly contagious kind of freedom.”

– Victoria Erickson

The Best of Music

Trust me, I’m a wannabe writer.

Let me start by saying: I’m not picky when it comes to music.

I love all kinds of music. Rap, country, pop, hip hop, Christian, instrumental, rock, acoustic, dance, Celtic… I like them all.

But I also hate them all. See, the music I like depends on the day. Some days I’m feeling something upbeat. Some days I want to listen to something soft. Some days I need something in between.

I’m sure many of you are in the same predicament as I am. In the case that you are, I’ve found the best way to deal with my ever-changing song needs is by making a playlist that includes every song I’ve ever liked and just sticking it on shuffle.

I may eventually hate some of the songs on the playlist, but I never get rid of them. I’ve learned the hard way that getting rid of songs only leads to future regret.

It makes it difficult for picky friends to listen to my music, but if they’re gonna be difficult, they can deal with it.

Plus, my song choices are great. I am very good at choosing good music. Trust me, I’m a wannabe writer.

If you’re thinking that this post is totally random, it half is, half isn’t. I’ve just had the┬ásong “I Am Stretched On Your Grave” by Sinead O’Connor (special thanks to┬áMitza for getting me obsessed) stuck in my head all day, and I was thinking about how it’s such a strange song to like where I’m from, yet somehow I still love it. And then I thought, wow, I have no real song preference beyond my own humble opinion of what good music is. I should write a post about that.

And then I decided to write this post.

Anyway, you should totally listen to that song. It’s great, especially if you like Celtic music.
