I am a great music lover. Since I was a child, I remember spending my free time listening to songs. My father would play me the vinyl from his favorite rock artists and that is how he passed me down his passion. Since I was very young my favorite group has been Queen. At home we had all their albums on vinyl and when the CD format appeared, we started buying them again, to complete the entire collection and be able to listen to them in our car.
When I returned from school, I used to put the music program on TV to watch video clips from my favorite bands. I still can recall the stress of holding the VHS command with my finger on the red button ready to hit Record. So I made my mixes with cut songs in re-recorded tapes. You can imagine the quality!
One of the memories I have from that early age, is the day of the concert in memory of Freddie Mercury, Wembley 92. I was at my grandmother’s house, watching that collection of artists paying tribute to the great Freddie, ecstatic. Now, writing this post I have watched it entirely again on Youtube and I have had exactly the same feeling. OMG Axl Rose (yes! The new singer of AC DC hehe) singing “We will rock you”
It turns out that Freddie was going to sing at the opening ceremony of the Barcelona ’92 Olympics. I was so thrilled. To think that my idol would be singing next to my home in honor of my city made me feel so important. But it was not meant to be, that nasty disease that caused havoc in the 80s and 90s took him before.
Some years later I turned into a great fanatic with Nirvana and grunge music. I did not stop until my mother made me a wool sweater just like the one Kurt Cobain used to wear. I asked her to knit it two sizes bigger than mine, obviously! You do not know my mother, but I will tell you she was expecting a very different style for her daughter!
Although I love music, it’s always hard for me to choose one song for an important moment. I want the song to communicate exactly what I feel. That excites listeners as me. I want to make sure it’s the perfect song to convey what I feel.
