A serious music insight from “Plateau” by Nirvana mentions the importance of words. But they forgot to tell you about the climate and development hell!

People wonder why music is the most popular art form on Earth. You could think of several Mediterranean countries where the Sun shines 300 days a year. And everybody knows the Sun is the #1 source of energy here on Earth.
The word is out: energy. With dancing fools who think too much, energy seems to be a taboo word. People draw energy from various sources but I always felt the music was special.
When I was 11 years old, I cried on a stupid song by Phil Collins (which is OK by the way “Do You Remember”). U2 always wondered why people chose the song “One” at their wedding. It’s because there’s a climate.
Arrested Development and Development Hell
With a little rewrite, that blog can become a wonderful blog that will allow me to concentrate on songwriting. But I’m intolerant to exercise and the reason why is WW2 and its aftermaths. I go to a coffee and I need calm and a car passes by with its honk.
The nice thing about a climate is that lots of people can become great people with the right climate. That’s why sometimes words are unnecessary. Today I was listening to U2’s song “With or Without You”. And remembered it was used in an episode of Friends (the sitcom).
Sometimes words can destroy a song or an experience. And I always felt the less you do, the lower the probability to make a mistake. Until that moment in 2010 where I gave all my soul.
Only the very best (a reasonable request). My ex-lover could have been an ally if I was worthy.
Let The Clouds Take A Holiday
Music is often tied to an era or a decade or a moment. Needless to say I only listen to music from the last 75 years. Maybe it’s a mistake but I found I could have a clue with that method. Sometimes funk and disco try to modernise a song like the 5th of Beethoven (Walter Murphy) or Also Spracht Zarathustra (Deodato).
Those are instrumentals and there are no words in it. Jazz music has lots of compilation of songs without words. They really know how to set the mood. Maybe they are cool cats playing with the beat of our hearts.
The last time my coach told me I was a genius, it’s because I wrote a song with a climate. By the way, feel free to explore my SoundCloud for more climates.
Back To My Roots, Boots and Loots
Sometimes I like to play a video game. It’s fun and the graphics become more and more realistic. It’s incredible to have on such a tiny screen a universe that big.
That’s why I focus on jazz, blues, soul, rock and funk. Of course, the 6th style is electronic music. It’s so vast that I feel like I am connecting with 200 million years of history.
Should we rewrite or trash everything? Since October, I had success until February on that blog. Suddenly, during 4 months, there was minimal activity.
But then I started to write good 3 posts and traffic was back. I guess there can be surprises if you listen to good music. The themes were love, justice and the environment.
Rewards and punishments are everywhere but it seems punishment is an easy thing.
You’re Watched From The Shadows As A Child
As a conclusion, I guess the title of that paragraph is self-explanatory. One person once told me I gave her chills with that blog. I was talking about shadow business and clandestine work.
They say you should imagine the world like babies everywhere. At first I was skeptical but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. When you stop playing an instrument, no sound comes from it.
There are games that are deemed a bit stupid but it depends from your point of view. When I think about karma and apocalypse, I think of a safe distance where you don’t get hurt. I have a theory that states 80% of us can be stars full of life if we find the right distance.
I was criticised a lot by my friends because I liked philosophy. But I feel you should start studying it at age 14 rather than age 18. What are your thoughts?
