I love the country music genre and I was influenced by my dad while I was younger because he always plays country music. He particularly loved Don Williams and John Denver.
‘Just a few Questions’ is a song by Clay Walker and a part of the second verse endeared me to the track. It goes thus:
“An’ why did my cousin have to die in that crash? A good kid , only seventeen, I still wonder ’bout that. It seems unfair to me, some get the chance to chase their dreams. An’ some don’t. But what do I know.”
I was having a conversation with my neighbor sometime last month when he told me about a corper who was killed in his hometown. The corper had come home to spend sometime with his family and three guys attacked their house and shot the corper in cold blood. He was just twenty three and was full of life.
There are a lot of couples who have been married for many years who are still without children but a lot of people who don’t deserve to be parents have a lot of kids that they don’t take care of.
A lot of people who could have contributesd to the development of the world die prematurely but the ones with no dreams live for many years. Death is unpredictable and unmerciful; it is not something you can easily prepare for. The only way to prepare for it is to live a Godly life.
Just like Clay Walker, I don’t mean to second guess God or criticise what I don’t understand; these are just a few questions I have.
“Is there a heart that music cannot melt? How is that rugged heart so forlorn!”
Music, is something I listen to everyday. I particularly love listening to music by using headsets. I don’t use headsets wherever my dad is because he will surely tell me to listen to the songs directly from the speaker of my phone.
To enjoy some songs, you’ve got to lie down on your bed in your room alone with your ear piece in your ear. Songs from artists like Don Moen, Adele, Asa, Westlife and Don Williams are best enjoyed this way. I particularly love Adele’s SET FIRE TO THE RAIN and it’s on repeat most of the time.
I love Country music a lot but my favorite genre is Rap. There are quite a lot of Rap Artists but my favorite is Eminem. I just love his style and most of his songs have great lyrics.
Nowadays, especially in Nigeria, most songs don’t have good lyrics. I don’t know why a lot of Nigerians listen to songs by Terry G. I personally don’t like his songs and I consider them as noisemaking.
Most Nigerians only listen to songs they could dance to. There are lots of great songs out there with cool lyrics that you can’t necessarily dance to. Don’t judge a song by its beats.
Music is something that inspires me and gives me the strength to overcome whatever challenges I might be going through. Whenever I get stuck while writing, music helps me to rediscover my rhythm.
If you don’t get inspired by music, maybe you’re listening to the wrong songs. Try something new today.
