The Music & Words Award!!!

I have to thank T. Wayne from the A Joyful Process blog for this open nomination of this brand-new (for me) award! Music and words are two things in life that I own, master, and live. They have been key and instrumental in my life for as long as I can remember, and they have gotten me through some of the worst times in my life!

Here are the rules for this award:
1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions within, with words AND music.
3. Pass the award to 5 bloggers who inspire you with posts about music.
4. Tag your post with #MWA, for Music & Words Award so we can all follow you down the line.
5. List these rules in your post.

So, here are the questions.

WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?

Everything…music is life, it is emotion, and it conveys depth of thought and mood when words fail. This instrumental by Pink Floyd, titled “Signs of Life,” is one of many which does so for me.

WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MUSIC RELATED MEMORY?

I was laying underneath a grand piano while someone played it beautifully – I watched feet working the pedals and listened to how they changed the tone of the song. I think that I was 3 or 4 years old, then…

WHAT’S THE FIRST ALBUM YOU’VE PURCHASED YOURSELF?

Adam & the Ants: “Kings of the Wild Frontier” and “Prince Charming.” I was probably the only person in my tiny school who liked Adam & the Ants, and I was soundly mocked by everyone I knew! I never understood why my taste in music was something to be made fun of, especially when those same people marveled at my knowledge of Black Sabbath, Quiet Riot, Jethro Tull, and many other bands. I realized that they were limited and expected the same of me…and I will never allow myself to be limited by others. Ever. The song “Prince Charming” sums it up!

WHAT IS THE LATEST MUSIC YOU’VE PURCHASED? (NO ONLINE STREAMING OR FREE DOWNLOADS – I’M TALKING ABOUT CASH HERE!)

The Best of David Bowie and Blackstar by…the late, great, ever-missed David Bowie. I love the song “Lazarus” – the saxophone speaks eloquently.

WHAT SONG DID YOU LISTEN TO LAST? (NO CHEATING – COME OUT WITH THE GUILTY PLEASURES, AND BE HONEST!)

“The Voice” by the Moody Blues…it is, always has been, and always will be one of my top favourite songs.

My nominees:

The rules say to nominate 5 other bloggers, but I think that everyone that I wish to nominate has an “award-free” blog. Anyone who reads this post and wishes to participate may do so…just follow the rules to the best of your ability, please!
