Music has always been a huge part in my life. I’ve played a bunch of different instruments and listen to music while I do anything. It helps me think and focus and calm down. I would say it’s a pretty important thing in my life. I listen to all kinds of music rap, edm, rock you name it. My favorite band is pink Floyd. Ever since I was little it was my dad’s favorite so I grew up with it playing around me all the time. Their music I would say is pretty relaxing or some people call it trippy. Listening to them is like a relaxing boat ride down a steam. Anytime I was mad or needed to calm down or focus that’s what I would listen to. Their songs have meaning to them which makes them kind of special. My favorite song by them is Wish You Were Here. This song has lots of meaning and background to it. Syd Barret one of the band mates was suffering mentally from his addiction to lsd and left the band. This took a toll on the band, because it was hard watching someone they were so close to lose his way. This took a big effect on the band mates Roger Waters and David Gilmour, who dedicated the album and the song mostly about Syd. You can really relate to this song if you know anyone who’s had drug troubles or uve lost someone uve cared about, it really makes you think. My favorite verse from this song is “Just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year”. The meaning to that line is that a relationship between two people is at a stage where it has no real meaning or enjoyment, but it's nevertheless accepted because nothing can be done. As I said before I like to listen to songs with meaning and this one has tons of meaning and feel to it so that’s why I enjoy it.
