4 years ago... It sounds so long ago now, I was very into my jmusic. Getting mew music all the time and making the time to listen to it, hear what other last.fm fans, forumers thought and really getting into the community. Then it died. I died a little death and never came back. I don't know why or how it started but my love seemed to dry off and I didn't really go anywhere. Not to Wpop or Cpop or any other music. It just died off. I stopped listening to new stuff and even what I had, I listened to them less and less.
Fast forward to the beginning of the year and I was after a new phone. It was all that I wanted but it was pricey. to justify this I said to myself it could double as my music player among many other things... So I got and packed it with song as soon as i got a memory card.. mostly mixes but not myfavourite stuf because I am like that. And each time a melody or a memory would come to me and I would go add new songs on. Mostly it was wpop like Bon Jovi, Celine and some anime like Do you remeber love (oh I'm so in love with this song I could play it endlessly over and over and over again.). Another fun avenue which I am/was really into is youtube. It is awesome for inding old and new songs alike and I have my playlists which I continually build upon.. I refound Do You Remember Love like that and tonight I am listening to someones premade playlist of Aya Matsuura songs. I remeber having a disc with just her songs and playing her songs A LOT and grabbing her albums as soon as they came out. Of the jpop artists she was one of my favourites. Funny thing is I never really felt she had any stand out songs. Maybe one or two that I would intentionally put on or would play in in my head when I wasn't listening to her but most of her songs was stuff that I would put on and I could listen to without hitting the skip button.
Tonight I am listening to this premade playlist and yea, some songs bring back memories but my strongest feelings are.. her voice is so good and these songs.. are so good too.
Maybe my tastes have changed a little.
