Music Always Has Your Back

To ease the pain of life's everyday problems, some people use ice cream. Some people use shopping. But me, I use music. I'm sure many people use music like me. Sometimes when your mad you will be listening to something with a badass beat, or some screaming and swearing. When your in love you may listen to the song that was playing in the grocery store when you saw the guy getting chocolate milk with the dark brown hair. Or it could be the song they were playing at the club when you made out with that short brown chick wearing the pink stilettos in the corner. What I'm trying to say is that for every mood that you are feeling, there is a song out there to help. People can't always be there for you, but music can. You can always count on music to be the life of the party, or to ease the pain of a recent tragedy. 

Lately, I have been in a bad mood, a dark place you could say. I felt alone, I felt guilty, I felt terrible. I needed a song or songs to help me through all this. Songs that can relate to my problems. It took me about 20 seconds to think of the perfect artist - Dominique Fricot. His music is so quiet but powerful, and his lyrics are so strong and meaningful. You can feel what emotion he is trying to convey in every song. His smooth vocals are a delight to listen to, and his songs are on repeat for hours. Whenever I'm down in the dumps, I usually listen to 'Haunted By Love' or 'Strange Lady'. I really enjoy his music and I am sure you will too! His new EP 'If Baby Could Walk' is out soon, if you want to learn more, go check Dominique out now! 


I really want to say thank you to all of my readers for all the support! I never would have thought that my blog would get this big! I have had hundreds of readers per day and this is crazy for me! I have been getting your tweets, emails and facebook messages and all of this is still overwhelming! I am really happy that you enjoy reading about the highs and lows of my life and keep coming back for more! Keep spreading the word and together we can get my blog to on of the top blogs on Blogger! 

Again, I am so thankful that I have great readers like you! Keep coming back, keep sharing and thank you for looking at life through my eyes.
