'I've got nothing to do today but smile"(Simon & Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy in New York) is my favourite line from all the songs I know and also the title of my first playlist as you maybe noticed. I think that that's a great motto to work from, though I'm glad that there are many other to do. I like smiling a lot because I truly believe that everything is much nicer when you're happy, but that won't help me a lot here.
ActuaIly I'm just here to listen to music because that's what I like to do most, but I also enjoy books, poems, art, tea, coffee, theatre, cake, sun, late night talks and films a lot :).
The music I enjoy most is folk, because it simply makes me very happy. I think it's beautiful to strip music down to the very basics. This definitely does not mean that I don't like other types of music, it just means that I could listen to folk at any random moment of the day, or night.
Nick Drake has made the most beautiful music I have ever heard, It sounds rather paradoxical for Nick Drake's music isn't exactly happy, but it surely is the most beautiful music I have ever heard.
Unfortunately I will never be able to see him playing live. I try to make up for that by going to as many other concerts as possible and even though I wish I had more time and money to see more shows, so far I am pretty content. Especially Sufjan Stevens last May blew me away completely. I still start smiling when I think of that show.
If you have any nice music to share, please let me know because I'm always happy to hear from anyone and especially from you, since we are all music lovers aren't we? :) The idea that you are reading my bio somewhere and that I probably will never meet you never ceases to fascinate me.
