Some Might Call It Lame, I Call It Cool!

Alright... So I have something to admit. I love instrumental music. But honestly, I had never paid much attention to it until the last year or so. I mean, I really enjoyed the beauty and intricacy of instrumental music that is often missing from the more modern/popular music with lyrics. But I didn't have much in my collection and I didn't often play it of my own accord.

But last year, I was seeing someone who was taking a classical music class at university and I started hanging out more with a friend who was a major classical piano player. Both of them started introducing me different musicians and music and I loved it!

Now, I can't seem to get enough of it. It is beautiful and can create any emotion. Today, in class, one of my favourites came on. It was Beethoven's Symphony number 3. The fourth movement started first. And after listening to the whole eleven minutes of that, I had to start it over and listen to the whole thing. Here is a part of it...

And then, a modern piece of instrumental music came onto my iTunes. I just couldn't believe it, I was loving it! It was an instrumental version of a song created by Imogen Heap, who is fabulous in general. But you guys should really check out this piece. It is fantastic! You can really listen to the music.

Anyway, hope you all enjoyed this mini musical aside. Have a great rest of the week!
