Music Is Made Up of Moments

Certainly, I do not have exclusive province on sardonically wistful observations and insight about music ... but I am more than a bit envious that I didn't write this article. The question the author addresses is "what kind of music do you like?" He notes that for those with eclectic music tastes, it's a very hard question to answer ... especially since it's one that seems intended to cubbyhole the respondent.

The second page of the article is what I like best. He observes that an appreciation of music is not necessarily attached to genre, artist, or composer. Sometimes those moments of passionate delight can be found in just a few moments of a single song.
