And welcome to something a little bit different!
Both those who have been reading my blog for a while and those just opened it for the first time and scrolled for 15s can tell that its main focus has been films and cinema. At the beginning (2014-2015), I would sometimes post about fashion or travelling, when I was still trying to find my own voice and my own niche. While I have enjoyed writing about films, for the past year, cinema has somewhat taken a back seat in terms of my interests/hobbies. Music has taken the no.1. Thus, I decided that it’s high time that I attempt to write about the no.1 current love of my life.
In addition, I have been massively struggling with writer’s block and just general productivity and I thought that by giving myself a task that I have an emotional investment in I might actually do it.
And now we come to the task that I have set myself. The origin of the task is this article by Billboard, listing and detailing a 100 songs that defined the decade, whose end is fast approaching. I’m gonna attempt to write 100 posts in the next month about each and every song on that list. Bear in mind, if I had some sort of knowledge of cinema due to studying it a bit as well as just learning through writing about it for 5 years, I am a total rookie when it comes to writing about music. Thus, I can’t really tell you what the upcoming posts will be about. Some of them might be my attempt at reviewing a song itself. Some of them might be about world events or pop-culture topics that the song relates to. Some of them might be really personal, detailing what the song means to me. More than anything else, this upcoming month of music post is going to be a project of learning.
I don’t know if I’m going to make it to a 100. I’m gonna try my best and that’s going to be enough!
