One of the things I really love about music is how versatile it is. There are so many different genres of music and so many variations within each of these genres that it’s easy to find music to perfectly suit your mood. It’s even easier these days thanks to the ability to easily compile your own playlists in any number of ways. I still remember making myself tons of mix tapes and CDs out of music I owned so that I could easily listen to specific songs together.
Today in Baltimore it was gloomy and rainy all day. To me, Bon Iver is perfect music to listen to when you just want to embrace that gloom and kind of wrap it around you like a blanket. That’s how I felt at work this afternoon, so I queued up some Bon Iver and appreciated being able to listen to music that perfectly fit the mood I was in.
