Exams, Plato and Music.


Red eyes, caffeine supply, hundreds of written pages and nights unslept. Yap, it’s exams time again. Tomorrow it’s the start and we finish in two weeks. Five subjects, five test-papers and I can only hope for the best.
Tonight I am finished and I’ve done all I can for the tomorrow paper. Of course, otherwise I wouldn’t be here.
Point is… I wanted to share some music with you.
Easy. Because music is the best way to relax, to spend three minutes away from all the stress and just enjoy a good song. Even Plato says:

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

Between my personal favourites are Mika, Muse, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Arctic Monkeys and such. I’m sure you’ve all heard of them, but it’s my duty to formally introduce you to the music that touches my soul.


The Stairway


Music has so many genres and during time many bands have tried to climb the stairs of glory. Among those many have failed, while others became legends. But one can not be a fan of everything. Even though each of them has brilliantly succeeded to became of such a great name in such a crowded world, not each of them are alike. They are different, for every soul and every heart. We have Queen for romantic rock fans, Metallica for those with strong ears, Abba for the peaceful. However Led Zeppelin was always hard for me to label. Let’s face it, you have to have a gram of snobbism to listen to Led Zeppelin. Even though between the listeners exist people who actually enjoy to listen to them repeteadly, most of those I know listen to them because “they are cool” and it’s ” strange and popular ” . I know a couple of songs that I actually enjoy but they’re not exactly the band you listen to on your way to school. You have to be in a certain mood to be able to go through their songs. I remember discovering Stairway to Heaven. Some snobbish classmate thought it was awesome and only for those with “great taste in music”. So, I immediately put it on my phone to have it there like a cool kid. A whole year I skipped it and when I finally found the mood to listen to it I realized it would be useful to get me asleep on a long way. I don’t want to be mean but I hate listening to someone because it gives others a certain impression. They’re just not my cup of tea. I guess I’m more of a romantic rock fan…
