On Repeat: My 10 favourite musical friends

…Music is my first love. That will never change…
It’s the only thing that you can love without it breaking your heart, and it’s the only thing that will always be there when you’re in need of companion, not really wanting company.

I just love music. I’m in love with it. All of it. Almost… I can’t go one single day without listening to music. It’s my resource of reflection that de-stresses me. Through music, I feel… everything. And nothing. …I get in contact with my emotions, and I get out of contact with my emotions. As such, I listen to an awful lot of music.
Like most people, I have my favourite artists – my favourite songs. My favourite artists and songs are by their nature reflective. I like songs that I can learn from – acquire perspective from. In one way or another. Or dance to. I do like to dance too – although I’m not particular good at it. Anyway, songs have come to represent soundtracks for my life – for situations, episodes, relationships and eras in my life. And when it comes to music, there’s nothing better than to discover new artists. It’s like discovering a whole new world. …And to gain new musical friends.

In this post, I wish to share ten of my favorite musical friends with you. I’ll restrict myself (although it’s really difficult for me) and only mention three favourite songs of each artist for you to explore – if you wish, of course.

  1. What a fantastic post Pernnille. I feel exactly the same way about music. Can’t go a day without it. Since my mum’s been sick and I’ve been driving in and out of the hospital every day the music in my car has been my savior! I love a large range of music, including Ed, Adele, Christina … play their songs on my guitar. Seems we share very similar tastes! 🙂

  2. That’s a nice broad mix of musical tastes there. I have my favourites of the favourites too. They tend to be albums that I can fall asleep to, whether it takes me the usual five or a longer forty minutes to drift off.
    Current faves: Jon & Vangelis “Friends of Mr Cairo” (1981) favourite track is “State of Independence”; Jon Hopkins “Opalescent” (2008) favourite track is “Private Universe”.
