Besides a fierce love for music in general, like many I find music and lyrics can uplift you, sear in to your soul, give you revelations, and take you out of dark places. There’s nothing wrong with other songs. I bounce to Taylor Swift pop melodies and grin at her videos like everyone else. However, there are just some songs that grab me and pull me in to my own soul. There are a few artists that I go to over and over for this because their music has that ability, and if its not one song or album I still know that it will come again. It’s that piercing you wish for because you know you’re not the only one identifying with ideas and feelings that are sometimes ineffable. A singer or band’s ability to draw those ideas and feelings out with words and music is amazing.
