Just one band? ! Oh dear.. I have various go-to bands/artists for various emotional states. Oh well here goes...
Dear Alanis Morrisette, Live, Offspring, GnR and Metallica
Thank you for getting me through the teen angst (I was a bit of a late bloomer) that engulfed me when I turned 18 and moved into Residence 600km away from home.
Thank you for helping me deal with the mornings after the night before's, the break up with N, the turmoil that was in my heart while Stud1 was getting his act together, the break up with Stud1 and the reunion...
The late nights at night clubs, dance parties in the passages of Viljoenhof, road trips. You became the soundtrack to our lives.
Special mention must go to Metallica for not only being a great way to express my feelings but also for ensuring an A in Drama when we used the lyrics as the words for a play about life's greatest fears!
You are still on my list of must listen toos. And you have been joined by a few new comers and some oldies that have new meaning to me.
Here's to another 32 years!
So what artists or songs inspire you?!
