Music Appreciation

I am listening to some songs on Songramp There is so much good music out there. There is so much bad music too, but I guess it's all a matter of opinion. I love it when I am listening to a new or unfamiliar song and get swept away with the words and music. The atmosphere and instrumentation make a huge difference to the vibe, whether it is sparse and plaintive, or fully produced. But for me the most important thing is the voice. Mind you, it doesn't have to be a perfect voice. For me it's about the character and the delivery. That special something that puts the song across. Personality. The elusive "it".

The song is the thing.
