This week on Day 6, Anthony Bourdain told us the story of a song that saved his life. I've been asking around and it turns out a lot of people have similar experiences. Music is powerful and intimate and tied to our experiences good and bad. A particular song at a particular time in your life might not be life saving but it can be life changing.
For me one of those songs is "Soon" by My Bloody Valentine. Do you know it? It's a massive truck of a song. I don't know what they're singing and I don't care. The texture of the thing, the rhythm, the magnitude of the sound- all of these things have at various times filled me up and taken over my emotions. I can listen to it when I'm happy or sad and it does the same thing, which is thrilling and full of excitement. And that's just one of mine.
