No really. Why is your music important?

Out of curiosity, I listened to Linkin Park’s version of “Rolling In The Deep.” To say I was underwhelmed is putting it mildly. Why they covered it is a speculative matter.

“Rolling In The Deep” works so well for Adele because she delivers the emotion behind words that anyone could have said. She not only delivers she makes you feel it. That is why this song has made such an impact on music over the past year, and why she impressed her peers enough to win six GRAMMY awards.

Before you ask me or anyone to listen to your music you should ask yourself this question: Why is this music important? What is the purpose, and why is it important enough someone should take a few minutes out of their day to give it thoughtful consideration?

    Oh boy, I hate to do this, but I “do” have a few songs that I’d love for you to hear, Janet. But hey, I can only imagine how many of these you get 🙂
