Music in my life
Most people like music. We can hear music everywhere - at home, at school, at the work, on a bus. We often wonder what is the role of music in our life? Why do people like it and what benefits do they have from listening music?
There are a lot of kinds of music. Different people listen to different music so there are rap fans, people liking rock, fascinated by techno and others. Their music often expresses their convictions and habits. The young, who are rebel against all the world listen to rap, techno and grunge more willingly than adults. Heavy, ugly words and agressive music give them psychical strength and help to relieve stress. Old people like classical music most - this is the music of their youth. Music may calm our nerves but some sorts of music may also irritate us - many adults can’t understand music, which is listened by their children and don’t let them listen to it - it may be one of the causes of quarrels between parents and teenagers. Parents disapprove of listening to noisy music in a car - the young, particularly young men like it very much. Music may consolidate people - there are many fanclubs, when the young can meet one another. For some years people who listen to the same music have been able to talk one another on the Internet - fans create new web-pages including information about their favourite bands.
My favourite music bands are The Offspring, Hey and T.Love. Generally I listen to many different kinds of music but I prefer punk and hardcore most. When I’m sad or I have to think about something important I listen to classical music. When I’m happy I prefer dance or techno - it often depends on my mood. I like buying new cassettes and CDs but nowadays in Poland these things are too expensive, I think. In my opinion collecting cassettes and records is a very interesting and pleasant hobby. I think that we can often know a person better if we know what kind of music he or she likes listening to. I like going to concerts but in Siedlce, where I live, there are too few concerts. I also like operas - I think that listening and watching operas is much more exciting activity than watching plays in the theatre. I love discos, I can relieve stress and feel really happy when I go to the disco once a month. I think that organising discos in my school is a very good idea, because it is one of the few kinds of amusement for teenagers in my town. I also like going to parties, where we most listen to music and dance.
Famous musicians all over the world have huge influence on fashion. We often would like to look like and wear the same clothes as our idols. We wear symbols of our favourite bands, often we have similar political opinions to them. Madonna, for example, is one of the most famous persons in the world and people think that she’s the symbol of sex - many men admire her body and nice voice. Many girls from different countries were crying after Curt Cobain’s death some years ago. A lot of people read about what happened in their idols lives in newspapers and listen to the news about it on the radio or TV - they like thinking and talking about their music idols’ problems. It means that our idols have also big influence on our behaviour and psyche.
We listen to music on trips or during journeys frequently. We like listening to music from walkmans during travels. When we sit next to the fire we usually dream about the sound of guitar. I have always admired people, who can play the guitar or the piano very well. The sound of guitar creates nice atmosphere and make us happy, I think. In the future I’m going to learn playing the guitar.
Generally speaking, in my opinion, music is necessary in our life, helps us in many domains of our life and often makes us remember about what happened a long time ago. It helps to calm our nerves very frequently. I think that everyone listens to some kind of music and life without music would be very boring.
