Someone once said it was their first love … and probably their last! I know what they mean.

There are two aspects of the Music category on this blog.

‘inspirational’ and ‘gorgeous’.

I find some of the best music really does fit into both - but the subtlety of the distinction in this case can be described as follows.

Inspirational

There is an https://music.apple.com/us/playlist/hidden-in-plain-sight/pl.u-8489sWW2oB of these songs that drive you. Hit your heart. Make you sit up and realise just how much good there is out there. Not my idea - someone mentioned to me that I should do this - quoting songs like ‘We Are The Champions’ …. I like the idea - I did not like the song suggestion.

Gorgeous

Funny, as you dive into the Headspace and Calm worlds … soft rolling tracks that are designed to relax you seem to be the 🎼 they drift towards.

Yoga/Massage businesses tend to utilise similar music that I generally reference as ‘New Age’ … a genre that I do not naturally gravitate towards. That said there are many albums I listen to that could fall into the category. Not sure that I can truly explain why some I absorb, where others I reject.

The point is that it got me to thinking. If I don’t want to fall into bland rolling ‘New Age’ music … what would I listen to?

Turns out, in my collection there are a number of artists that for me that allow the gentle passage of sounds to massage my ears. I will document them under a new category … which I have rather creatively called ‘Music’.

So far I have counted

Nils Frahm

Enigma

B-Tribe

Tangerine Dream

Curiously, all of them have at least Germanic influence, if in fact all of the involved artists are not German. No idea why.
