I don't claim to be any sort of expert on music, I don't claim to know what's good or bad, all I know is that I love the music that I love. 

It's very rarely mainstream; most haven't heard of the music I listen to (and if you have, we should be friends) and probably wouldn't like it if they did. Or maybe they would. Again, I don't claim to know anything about those things. 

All that I know is that my love of music is a very important piece of who I am. If someone says they love me, we share a true love of music as an important component in our relationship. Mostly. There are those, though...

My father was very influential in helping me define my musical tastes. His imprint is all over me, but most especially in the music that I listen to.

I'm writing this blog about this so that I can hopefully bring you along on my musical journey. And maybe you can share some of your own journey with me. I'd like that a lot.

Here's a really beautiful song that I just heard and can't get away from. Tell me what you think in the comment section (you can do it anonymously).
