My favorite music


★ My favorite music

I really like music because it always makes me feel relaxed. So, in my free time, I sometimes enjoy listening to music. Actually, I almost always listen to J-pop, but I’d like to tell you a little bit about my favorite western music.

I like music which always makes me feel relaxed. In other words, I like the one which has slow-pace or marvelous sound. For example, Carpenters, Billy Joel, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Sting, Mariah Carey and so on. Needless to say, The Beatles, which is loved the most throughout the world, is one of my most favorite band.

I became interested in The Beatles during my preparation days for the entrance exams for a university. At that time, I lived in a dormitory. A friend of mine next my room gave me tapes of The Beatles. I was not interested in music so much then, but I tried to listen to them in my free time. I remember that the more I listened to them, the more I liked them.

Now, whenever I listen to them, they remind me of the days when I was worried about my future path.

At around the same time, another neighbor was crazy about The Rolling Stones. I remember I could hear his singing their songs, which was heard from my room.

I want to know how my friends at that time are doing now because we have not kept in touch with each other for a long time.
I think music has miraculous power which enables us to recall the sceneries of each moment. That’s why I love music.
