So, here are the questions.
WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?
Music is my peace of mind. If I am having a bad day, it can lift me up. Music takes me to another place and time, music can bring back memories, good, bad, happy and sad. Music is life! I can’t imagine life without it. Sometimes music says more and expresses my feelings better than I ever could
WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MUSIC RELATED MEMORY?
Church. When I think about my first memories of music I think of singing “Jesus loves the little children” in church. I also think of my sisters’ record collections ranging from Michael Jackson to Men at Work to Sting and the Police and of course Rick James. I think of Ann Murray because my mom always played her music.
I remember the kitchen being filled with men smoking and drinking budweiser while my dad played his guitar. It was usually some Johnny Cash or Marty Robbins.
WHAT’S THE FIRST ALBUM YOU’VE PURCHASED YOURSELF?
Hmmm I can’t say I remember the first album. I know my first concert was Debbie Gibson and I definitely had her cassette tape, Out of the Blue. I also remember recording song off the radio when I was little.
WHAT IS THE LATEST MUSIC YOU’VE PURCHASED? (NO ONLINE STREAMING OR FREE DOWNLOADS, I’M TALKING ABOUT CASH HERE!)
I’m not sure the last CD I purchased, but for Christmas my son bought me India Arie’s Christmas Album. I wanted to buy it because I wanted the actual album but couldn’t find it. My son found the very last copy in the state and gave it to me for Christmas. That made it that much more special.
WHAT SONG DID YOU LISTEN TO LAST? (NO CHEATING, COME OUT WITH THE DIRTY PLEASURES!
J. Cole – Wet Dreamz
