Snapshot Four: Music

Music is such a small word that has such a huge meaning in society. Could you imagine life without music? Even if you don’t necessarily listen to music in your freetime, we hear it everywhere. You step wake up in the morning hearing the birds sing their songs, we hear it in movies and commercials. I have yet to find someone that doesn't want anything to do with music. Personally I think it’s the world's best thing to exist besides food of course.
I can listen to just about any type of music that someone plays, I consider it a type of art. Personally my go to genre is Country music. I grew up with it, it's the only thing that my family would play until I was old enough to control the radio.  I can remember being five years young going to the store with my dad and just falling in love with every song played. It's definitely not a genre that everyone loves. For me it's something that I can feel I connect with, It makes me feel happy. Whenever i'm feeling upset there's always a song that I know will cheer me up. I have many songs that have several different memories that I have with them. There is one that always stands out and that is the song “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynryd. As a child my best memories involve going fishing with my grandpa, I remember so vividly him playing this song on a cassette tape in his aged truck. He played it so loud I thought my ears were going to explode. Im blessed for music honestly, because you can play a song and it will take you back to memories that you forgot existed, and in that moment you can forget the stress and current life issues and just reminisce.

My Favorite singer and this is my Favorite and one of the first albums she has made.


  1. Where I think the writing is at its best is, "...I consider it a type of art" I like how you relate music to being an art.

  2. I really like how you started of your writing with a question, "Could you imagine life without music?". This makes the reader more connected to the writing.
