These last few weeks, music has been my light and therapy.
Recently, the weather condition has been very rainy and gloomy where I live. Influenced by the melancholy atmosphere, my taste in music has greatly evolved as well. I always favored upbeat pop music over anything because of the hype and energy they bring. Strangely, I've been very into more lyric-focused, acoustic and ballad types of songs. I have two favorite songs at the moment and they are both by the same artist--Tim Lopez (the lead guitarist from the Plain White T's). The first one is called Rhythm of Love, which I love the story behind the song. Tim actually wrote it while he was in love, so the song really reflects the highlights of being in love and its peak of happiness. Another favorite of mine is Body Parts, which is also written and sung by Tim. This song felt very special to me because I was touched by Tim's sorrow and regret of losing the love he had with his wife. I was astonished as to how the harmony of lyrics and tunes can deliver such personal feelings. These two songs have been overplayed on my phone and I'm seriously addicted to his voice. Whether I failed a test or the weather was gray, I can always listen to his soothing voice and end up smiling throughout the rest of the day.
