Music I Was Raised On

Music has come a long way since 1997. Since the beginning of time really. I look back on school plays, random home videos and my MSN account to find the most exotic stray of music you could possibly consider. I am equally as fortunate that I was raised on amazing music, by amazing parents which is arguably something that is more difficult nowadays with a more limited choice of content. Music can help to shape your opinions, morals and perception of the world as we know it.

Music can bring an incredible amount of solace for all of us. Through breakup to the beautiful, sometimes lyrics can describe the inter-workings or your heart better than any words from your own mouth ever could. Here are some lists of bands I listen to whenever a particular mood comes to pass.
