Music I Love and Why

Music I Love

Image Source

One of the things that seems out of place in my life is my love for all sorts of music. I enjoy various forms from the classical to the popular. What is out of place regarding my love for music is that I cannot play any instrument nor can I sing on key. I have attempted to understand why music has such an appeal for me, even though I do not possess any musical ability. I cannot explain it. While I am overwhelmingly right-brained and am creative in writing, photography, and landscaping, I cannot explain my great interest in music.

Even though I lack any musical talent, I would also like to know why a composer wrote any score of music that I truly enjoy. Hence, this section, Music I Love and Why, is dedicated to sharing some of my favorite music and what motivated the composer to write it. I hope that you enjoy both parts.
