Most people that know me, know how important music is to me. It's more than just loving music though. There are some of us out there, who "speak" music. It's not that I'm musically inclined or have any special talent of my own. Just the same, music is a passion of mine.
Most people enjoy a little variety in music. Many listen to a broad range of genres. There are some of us that connect because we listen to all classifications of music. We are the ones who will sit down with a glass of wine and listen to music with the same intensity that people watch tv. We are just as entertained; maybe even more so. We play a song out in our heads as a sort of "theme song" to get us motivated to do whatever. Music is connected to smells and memories, but also makes us look to the future. Perhaps we worship music, but we worship through it as well.
We are also the ones with playlists so complex that they don't seem to have any rhyme or reason to them. Bob Marley, Alison Krauss, Pearl Jam, Bach, and Eminem can all bring their own little something to the same playlist for a music lover. It's about what the music inspires in us.
Lots of people will read my post and say "Oh I love music too. That doesn't make anyone special." But for people who speak through music, we know the difference.
