What makes a song so wonderful? I mean, what is it about your favorite song that pleases your ear so much? Or any song, for that matter?
Why do I have so much music on my Zune? What is it about all 1,370 songs in my collection that stands out to me?
I can’t really say.
Maybe it’s the poetic lyrics of some artists. Or the catchy beat of another.
For instance, I love Lacuna Coil for the harmony of the two singers and how beautifully it blends with their metal sound. I love Breaking Benjamin for the way their instruments sound with Ben’s voice. I love Brand New for their abstract lyrics and unusual sound. I love Lady Gaga for her catchy songs and strange lyrics. I love Taylor Swift for her relatable songs and her fun sound. I love Poets of the Fall because of the singer’s theatrical voice and their poetic lyrics. I love Chevelle for their rock sound and Disturbed for David’s voice. I love Three Days Grace because they sound bad ass but they sing a surprising amount of love songs. I love Linkin Park for their diversity in sound.
I love several other artists for countless reasons.
