Music has always been an important thing in my life. I listened to it in the car rides when I was little, and I listen to it a ton driving now. My dad has always been interested in speakers since I was little. From when I was little to now I have listened to many kinds of music including my dad’s old 80’s music junk that I can’t stand. My mom’s music is the kind I love. Its todays hits. Even though I grew up with both of their music tastes neither one is what I listen to the most.
My almost favorite music is the stuff you can find in today’s hits station, or today’s hip hop and rap station. I listen to rap when I work out, which is a lot of the time. I don’t listen to it for the lyrics, because most of them are disgusting, but I listen to it for the beat. The beat is so uplifting and fast. When I lift and run I listen to the beat to go along with my lifts or steps on a run. You can’t find a fast beat like that in other music.
A flashback I have and will always be important to me is about a song called “Seven Years” by Lukas Graham. It was played at Noah Lears funeral, which was a kid who I went to high school with that was a grade under me. He was playing basketball at a local church, which was across the street from my house, and he went to dunk a basketball and the hoop fell on his face and chin. For eighteen days he fought for his life in Childrens Hospital, and then Hospice. The day the school found out about his passing, they called everyone into the auditorium and told everyone the news. Then everyone played this song. During his funeral, they played this song on repeat. Friends, family, and people who didn’t even know him filled the basketball gym full for the funeral. People were even standing during it. Just seeing everyone in the school during a school day do nothing but sit there and cry was so hard to watch. Especially seeing his favorite teachers say goodbye to him was so hard. This song will always remind me of Noah Lear and the day of his passing, and funeral. This song will always mean something to me and everyone who knew him.
