So this is something new that I am trying. I normally never express any type of feelings on the ’ interweb’ so bare with me
There’s very few things that bring me joy other than my son - Linkin Park is honestly the only person(s) that I can actually listen to 24/7 and still want more at the end of it.
Since around 2002 when I had first listened to Linkin Park - I had found Love. As weird as it may seem, or obsessive, annoying - however you want to call it. I fell completely in love with Linkin Park- or Chester’s voice- either or. ;).
My childhood friends remember me as the girl who played Linkin Park the entire night they slept over - I had a six CD changer and every CD was Linkin Park. I have always been self conscious about myself - I would worry about what clothes I wore, or how I wore my hair etc - Yet I stood tall and proud to blare your music to my entire block.
When I was 13 I went to a concert in Toronto, Ontario. Linkin Park was a lineup with multiple other bands. I had paid for two tickets - because that was the only way I could get one- Took a bus to Toronto from my home town - I had lied to my parents, so I would be able to go. If I had to do my life over again - I’d do the exact same thing in a second. I’ve been to a few concerts but no one could every compare to a Linkin Park concert.
You know it’s kind of funny… I love music, as much as anyone I’m sure. Though, Every time I listen to Linkin Park’s songs, or lets be honest, Chester’s wonderful voice along with the wonder music - There’s something about it that I can’t exactly describe. Anyone can make music - But there are very few people who can make you FEEL music. I believe Linkin Park has achieved that perfectly.
Though through bad personal choices, I had separated myself from everything I loved. I forgot how much music influenced my life, and helped me make it through every day challenges. I went through many years of depression and confusion. Then one day - I decided to have a day for ME. I listened to Linkin Park the entire day. Anything I could find about them, small music recordings, music clips, interviews, anything. I can honestly say - I’ve never been as happy as I have been after listening to Linkin Park.
It’s crazy how you can think that no can can influence you, or change who you are - When really all it can take is a song that can show you the meaning of life.
Thank you guys.
