I don’t know how you are, but I am very picky when it comes to music.
From the moment I became a fan of electronic music I started picking the songs I like carefully. After that, the songs that I’ve selected would be added to my playlist.
I could say that I am very picky, but I know to appreciate those songs that have a good taste, and that special something, because they are like those rare metals.
The gold is very expensive because you can find it only in small amounts.
The good songs have something special.
They have that secret ingredient that makes you listen the same song again and again.
Unfortunately they are pretty rare.
My opinion is that you should not get bored by a song.
You should listen to it just once in a while, and always enjoy it.
As I was saying at the beginning of this article, is it good to be picky in music?
I believe that when you pay attention to the music you are listening, you have only to win.
Your taste in music becomes better, and this will be visible in your projects.
Listen to as many music genres as possible
I‘ve noticed a lot of people that listen to just one music genre.
Why would you listen just one when there are so many?
You need to realise that the more open-minded you are, the more you will progress.
I like listening to a lot of musical genres.
Lately, the one that I like the most is dubstep.
There aren’t so many excellent songs here, but the way they were made got my attention.
Dubstep is a pretty hard to make music genre, and you need some technical knowledge.
Outside the electronic music area which has a lot of genres of music, I do listen to other genres of music.
I’m talking about other genre that got my attention.
In the past I’ve attempted to make this kind of songs aswell and I will attempt to make this type of projects again in the future.
Do you want to know what I’m talking about?
If you want to hear it, search on google “celtic music” or “medieval song” and you will find a few example.
It’s a very old style of music. I like the state that this type of songs has to offer.
They have a lyricism that relaxes the listener.
I like very much this genre and I would like to make some songs like these in the future.
If dubstep is a bit aggressive, the celtic music is very gentle.
I believe that I could find a few examples that also have rhythm in this type.
What other genres should you listen?
Well the variety keeps increasing.
The more technology is used in music, the more it diversities.
Paradoxically, even if older genres of music you can find “gold”.
Old music suffers from a technical standpoint , but for me it is a source of inspiration.
I’ve listed the advantages of selecting the song you are listening to.
I’ve even gave you a few examples, but I want to give you a few more reasons why is it good to be picky when it comes to music.
Keep searching for new songs
This is probably that you have heard before.
As long as you are up to date with the newest songs, you have a chance to be more inspired.
Do you know what the problem is?
You need to search for some of them,thus meaning that the songs that are on repeat on radio aren’t necessarily the best.
Unfortunately, nowadays’ music is mostly based on money.
Anyone that has money, and a little talent can promote his own creations.
The only thing that matters is to have a lot of money, talent doesn’t matter as much!
There are some artists that deserve to be followed. I will give a few examples in a future articles.
Do you have a favorite song?
It is a very popular question when it comes to music.
I for example don’t have a favorite genre of music.
I like a lot of songs so it’s pretty hard for me to choose one of them.
For how much time can you have a favorite song? Just as long as you don’t get bored by it!
Then you find another song that you like and so on.
I hope you understand what advantages are brought by being picky with the music you listen.
First of all when you listen to quality music you are more inspired.
True music will build your new personality.
Even further, the quality of the songs that you make is influenced by the quality of those that you are listening.
I have a question for you:
Do you think that you will make good music, if you don’t listen to good music?
Most artists put a bit of what they listen in the songs they are making.
Let’s take a example: if I listen to X, then will I mimic X? Maybe I will, or maybe not.
There are many people that have a certain idol, and even if they say that they are not mimicking them, their creations somewhat resemble those of their favorite artist’s.
And there are also those fans that admit that they want to have songs close to those of their idols.
As a closing I would like to ask you something:
Are you picky with the music you are listening to?
