Favorite Songs

I don’t have one favorite band or even favorite genre of music. My favorites are rock (classic, hard, and progressive), dance (disco and what I consider its modern equivalent, EDM [Electronic Dance Music]) and opera.

You Don’t Wish You Were Here

As I’ve mentioned repeatedly, I’ve been enjoying a lot of Pink Floyd lately, in particular, the “Wish you were here,” album and title track. The line, “Two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,” is moving and sad. The idea of people being in close proximity, but yet lost and disconnected is heart-breaking. Continue reading
