Mood Mirroring with Music

in #feelingnostalgic2 years ago

Feeling a bit nostalgic this morning I downloaded a great album - of one of my heroes - to my Spotify app for offline listening.

It was Billy Joel time! While driving to work; While I was at work; While driving back home; While writing this post.

The first and only album I ever possessed of this guy, was Концерт. An super album with a live recording of his concert in Saint Petersburg (Leningrad) many decades ago. Some other albums I still have on tape, copied from CDs I rented through a CD rental service that started their service in the late 80s having their shop around the corner from where I was living at that time. Through this rental service I learned a great number of lesser mainstream music, but I was also able to discover many albums of the cool, more mainstream artists.

It was through this rental service I discovered the early repertoire of this super artist!

The song "Piano Man" is a real classic and you probably know it. The other songs on the album are much less known, but darn good as well; my opinion of course :)

Billy Joel

Piano Man was Joel's second album, published in 1973; More than four decades ago; But still a great album! I'll for sure will leave it in my Spotify app for offline listening pleasure for the foreseeable future!

Those minutes that you had where you relax and forget all the problems while listening to good music are magical I hope you have enjoyed them

Absolutely I had those monents! :) to be frank; I have them quite regularly. Hope you as well? A day without music is a day not lived!

Well, I personally, as you can know in Venezuela, the economy is not stable, so I have made Steemit my work and I always accompany music since it is my engine to keep going and be able to concentrate but if there are moments of relaxation where I look for generosity more quiet for example right now I'm listening to porcelain - Moby oh god what a masterful composition is this, I hope to see more works so yours to enjoy from Venezuela :D
