Music is that one thing that binds so many of us. We all have our favorite stars, the ones we can connect to, the lyrics we speak out loud as if speaking our hearts out. There are so many songs that we say describe us or our situation. In short, we are so much in love with music, that rarely one can be found with no songs in the mobile phone. Today, let us have a look at some of the questions related to music.
Who are your favorite bands or artists?
Oh! There are so many of the artist and bands that I love listening to. My favorite being one direction. Other than them, I even enjoy listening to Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Mohit Chauhan, AR Rehman, to name a few.
How often do you listen to music?
Very often. I need music while I go for jogging in the morning. It gives me the strength and the pump to keep going when I feel tired. Apart from that, I even listen to music when either I am feeling low or sometimes just because I want to dance my heart out.
When was the last time you bought a song or album?
I have never bought any song or album since, I think, 2002. Back then, when there was no internet it was so much common to buy a album or a cassette for songs. With the coming of internet, it is all about downloading the song and enjoying it.
Do you usually buy albums online or CD’s from the store?
Well, for most part I love going to the store when I buy a CD. Buying from a store, I think is much more fun than buying online. I know that sometimes there are lot of discounts available online but it is the joy of searching through lot of CD’s and then asking people around for reviews and then bringing along friends, that make buying CD’s fun.
Have you ever illegally downloaded music?
I don’t remember ever illegally downloading music, but I am not very sure because as a child one is not bothered much about piracy. The only thing that matters is that one should get their favorite song. However, now I make sure that if I am listening to a song, I give due credit to the singer by not downloading it illegally.
Do you think it is okay or not okay to download music illegally?
In my opinion, definitely yes, downloading music illegally is not a right thing to do. It is because when a musician sings a song, there is so much more involved than mere singing the song. One has to first write it down and then edit it and then sing it all so that it makes sense to people. Having worked so hard, if the musician does not gets his/her fare due, I think there is no point in talking about equality and fare justice.
What kind of music do you listen to when you want to dance?
Most of times I listen to lyrical music i.e. something that makes sense to me and something that I can connect to. Even more, it should be loud and pumpy because it is only then that there seems a sense of dancing my heart out at it. Slow songs are surely not my type when dancing.
What kind of music do you listen to when you are sad?
Anything that can either make me cry and forget about it all or something that makes me happy and forget about it all. I listen to music to forget the sadness and live life as it comes. So, one can find me listening to songs that fit into the situation well and can make me feel better.0
Is there a certain song or type of music that makes you really energetic?
There are few songs that I really love and do make me feel energetic. But, they are temporary. Most of the times the songs change, but for most part, it is the pop music that makes me feel dancing and jumping and singing my heart out.
Do you think music is getting better or worse?
I think music is changing, there is no point in comparing music with what it was may be ten years back or twenty years back. Every era has its own taste and it might be very much possible that the taste has changed over time.
What kind of music will your kids listen to?
I am not very sure of that, but I think it will be more of trans or remix. Also, with the international market expanding, I think my kids will have a know how about music from entire world.
How do you feel about your country’s traditional music?
I think my country’s traditional music is great as it reminds one of the roots of the country. It talks about the history and shows us how the country has evolved over time. I do really love listening to the traditional music of my country.
