Sample Answer

Music is one of the best things that have happened in this world. Its essence can be seen by the way it touches people’s hearts and invokes various emotions within. I am very fond of listening to music. I only listen to instrumental tracks when I work or study as they help me concentrate, but while lying idle or driving, I listen to a wide array of songs from different genres.

These can range from Rock to Jazz, depending on my feelings and whereabouts. A song that has a very special meaning to me is “Under Your Scars” by a band named Godsmack. I heard it first while looking for an older song from the band last year. The genre is Rock, and is sung and composed by the band’s lead singer, Sully Erna. The song is the most popular out of the album “When Legends Rise”. Sully Erna is an internationally renowned artist who is immensely popular in the Rock genre. His band is a commercially low profile band and I am a huge fan of it and the music.

The song is a rock ballad that invokes very strong emotions in my heart. It is about a person calling out his love and talking about their feelings and remembering the times when they were together. He urged his love on questions about things not going as planned. The lyrics are far more beautiful than how I show them, and I am in love with this song. I respect the singer from my heart and have been listening to this song every now and then ever since.
