You know you’ve got to discuss the events of your life with friends. I’m happy we share interests and the way we take the life. At school we discuss clothes, music and singers we listen to. It is also pleasant to get a new disc before my friends have it and to describe my emotions and impressions to them.
I don’t see what they all find in jazz. I don’t find it attractive at all. I think classical music is poetic, pleasant, moving, inspiring … but jazz isn’t. Well, it is not that I hate listening to jazz, no, this style has simply no appeal to me. Improvisation is not what I really like whether it is improvisation in singing or in playing.
Unlike other teens, I like many music styles, but I’m not a specialist in any of them. I don’t know names except those of world-famous composers, such as Mozart or John Lennon, I’m not interested in certain styles, for example, I can’t tell you anything about reggae. All I can say it is some exotic music, but it used to be popular once. That’s all I have to say.
I like techno. I just adore it. Very energetic. Really modern. Reminds me of spacecraft, androids, unlike that Gershwin stuff.
As for me, I don’t care for pop music. I find it rather dull. All songs sound the same, their lyrics are built up of a hundred of words, and those words are usually rhymed badly and are meaningless. Singers sound very much the same. So, pop music gets on my nerves.
When I was young, nobody heard of electronic music. Well, most of people heard nothing of computers at all. But nowadays youngsters become more and more attached to the sounds computers produce for them. But what I say is: why not? They have right for it, don’t they?
