I've been listening to a lot of Metal recently. The last few days it's specifically been Metallica. I must have an anthem for my mood, and the mix of anger, defiance and steady, harsh beats tracks with my feelings and gives a purpose to my feelings.
Nothing else brings me up like their version of Turn the Page. The Spanish guitars at the beginning of Battery sooth my soul before they launch into fast paced rhythmic beats that make me bob my head while I work.
Pick me up Metallica. Let me rock out. Let me feel free. Let their be emotion, but let their also be purpose.
