I guess I'm mellowing down. Back then I was an avid rock listener: all the screams, wails, riffs, and the I-don't-care-if-nobody-cares lyrics really sounded so familiar to me. I was smug, selfish, and I thought I should destroy everyone.
Now I rarely listen to rock. Whenever I have a plate or homework to do, I listen to classical music instead. I dunno, it's just more... stimulating. Even though almost everyone I know sleep through Beethoven. But then, I'm not in the stage where I can easily identify Mozart from, say, BRAHMS.
I'm also happy that I've enjoying jazz and bossa nova. They're those things I picked up from movie soundtracks and listening to '60's mod music.
I need a jazz education, and the only name that I'm familiar with is Astrud Gilberto's. I have so much to learn.
I'm currently in love with local artists like Up Dharma Down, Cynthia Alexander, Orange and Lemons*, Radioactive Sago Project** - there's jazz, bossa nova, soul, world, and rock in them.
I guess I want to listen to songs that remind me of 2:45 a.m.
