Relax, enjoy, it's music

Published April 16, 2017

I was having a bit of a panic over the last few weeks that I’ve listened to lots of albums but can’t remember them all. What do I like? What don’t I like? Why so manyyy? And then I took a step back and realised this project isn’t about learning every single song I listen to. I compared it to the Film Watch odyssey, which isn’t about remembering all 700+ films consumed. Both projects are about immersing yourself in a medium, soaking up the general love and enjoyment of the genre, learning, growing, and, dare I say it, being in the moment.

For the music project, it’s not about being an encyclopedia of pop, it’s about vaguely knowing a band when they are mentioned, or finding a new album to love and one to hate, and most of all, it’s about having context for the songs rather than just knowing them from a five second clip on Peter Kay’s Car Share.

Relax, enjoy, it’s music and it’s wonderful.
