Many people find my stages of obsessing over musicians exhausting.
I find my stages of obsessing over musicians exhilarating.
I have had many of those stages.
There was the Stacie Orrico stage. The Kelly Clarkson stage. The Fray. OneRepublic. Travis, mixed in someplace in the list. The Hush Sound. Aqualung, somewhere in there. Ben Folds also folded someplace in there. Coldplay. And a newly-developing appreciation for Weezer.
There are times when I am doing my homework. Those times are not often. But they exist. Sometimes. And sometimes I can't concentrate with music playing. Other times, I can. If I force myself to concentrate.
You know what? When I listen to Coldplay, I don't even have to force myself to concentrate. It just blends in with my brain.
Music and brain. Hand-in-hand.
I think that is why I love Coldplay so much; because the music can coexist with my thoughts without any stress or struggle.
So, let us all join hands and listen to more Coldplay.
