It's the first Monday of the month so it's time for the Question of the Month bloghop, hosted by Michael D'Agostino of A Life Examined.
Michael said his question for September was suggested by Alex J. Cavanaugh, who wants to know,
What kind of music best speaks to you?
I'm struggling to answer the question, so I asked my son what kind of music best speaks to me.
Folk music, he answered.
You are out of your fucking mind, I said.
So I guess we've ruled out folk music.
Let's start with pop/rock 'n roll. It speaks to me because I grew up with it. Some members of Kansas are graduates of the high school I attended (not when I was there; they're about a million years older than I am). Pieces of their music speaks to my Christianity. I glommed onto Alanis Morissette when she came along because she speaks to the oppression I've experienced as a woman, and especially, as a wife. Then came Green Day. Don't wanna be an American Idiot.
I guess my music expresses my personal beliefs and often brings me comfort.
If you'd like to listen to some examples of music that speaks to me, here's your chance:
