musicisart truly started because of all the passion and feeling that comes from art. how does one really get it? we enjoyed the sigur ros message board asking a few random strangers to tell us about a special song and their simple private meaning behind why its important.
this is how they responded.
context: at one of their gigs in a small venue, sitting on the floor at the back, leaning with my back against the wall, listening and watching all of the pretty lights float above the top of the crowd in front of me
result: fucking brilliant
listening to this song for the first time after it was sent to me
result: falling in love with the girl who sent me the song
context: august 2003, south shore nova scotia, sitting by the atlantic
context: driving from ohio to florida to live by myself, away from everything i ever loved and everything i ever ruined.
result: complete freedom.
context: a lonely night walk at the beach
result: realizing that solitude is the best thing for me.
context: sitting in my room, hearing it for the first time.
result: there was nothing to describe it. next to love, it was the most incredible feeling in the world.
