Singing has always been a way for me to deal with my emotions. I know I’m not the best singer, at all. When it’s for your private purposes, who cares really? Music in general has been a way of dealing with my emotions all this time. You could even say that music is my best friend – it’s there whenever I need, it has gone through the good and the bad with me, it hasn’t disappointed me, it hasn’t given away my secrets. Music is my everything.
When I was in my teenage years (gosh, that makes me sound old!), there was this one song that I could just bolt out of me. I love this woman, she is very special to me. Her Stripped album is the best album she has made in her career, simply because she stripped herself to the core and let her emotions out. It is a very raw album. I haven’t seen anything as raw from her since then – and it’s been nearly 10 years already!
Now, when I’m in that place, I find myself listening to the wonderful talent, Adele. She just gets my emotions going. The song below is a raw song to me, and each time I start to sing it, I end up crying. Tears just start falling down my cheeks. I don’t often listen to her because she is very melancholic with her music.
