I've been having a hard time finding music I like lately. I want something new, something refreshing. I want someone to create something that isn't the same ol' smooth voice and acoustic guitar or mindless, tuneless drivel. Something with melody, something I can obsess over and listen to endlessly...
Every once in a while, I do feel something when I listen to a new piece of music. Once in a blue moon, I hear something and I am immediately transported, transformed into someone else, whisked away. These times are rare and inexplicable (and I'm not talking about music that reminds me of friends or old memories-- I'm talking about something that just catches me up the moment I hear it for the first time).
What is it about a song that transcends reality in those rare moments? I don't know. But it's pretty awesome when it happens. Here are two songs that transported me recently:
Here and here.
Does this happen to anyone else? What songs or artists make you feel that way? I'd love some new music to listen to.
