Top Ten Music Genres with the Most HeartBritgirl
The Top Ten
I might not have "lived" it but I totally get it. I get their emotions, because I feel them when I not only hear the lyrics but the music. I don't find Blues to be depressing at all! It makes me smile, and it truly does uplift me. The lyrics are personal and meaningful. It would take forever to try and explain what this genre (a genre that I once refused to listen to) means to me. - Britgirl
Agreed completely! Once I read about it. Blues musicians were very sad, depressed about their lives. That's why they created the sad songs, emotional songs. Those old blues guitar licks are prime example of it. - zxm
Blues is about real peoples' real lives, issues, struggles, real emotions. It's passionate, soulful, extremely emotive and does indeed have a whole lot of heart. And I've taken it into mine. - Britgirl
"Agreed completely. Once I read about it. Blues musicians were very sad, depressed about their lives." This is what happens with armchair expertise. Some people "read about it." Some people have actually lived it. While some noted blues musicians were chronically depressed, most are not. Blues is the OUTLET for such emotions. Beyond that, not all blues is depressing, regardless of anyone's fundamental misunderstanding of the genre. Be-bop, boogie, boogie-woogie, rock 'n' roll (not to be confused with "rock," except sometimes) are all blues, and are generally quite energizing and uplifting. Try living an experience before presuming to inform others about it.
I vote for rock because it has a lot of heart and it can get your heart pumping and feeling emotions! - Curti2594
Sure. If your only emotions are hate, anger and angst.
Which I have grown extremely fond of. - Britgirl
