My Music

I guess you could say we are a pretty musical family even though we are not musicians, except for my wife, who is actually a pretty decent piano player. Hopefully this changes soon though, as we plan to get all of our boys into playing some form of music soon. We turn on music in the morning and listen to it throughout the day, everyday, until nighttime. From Jpop to Kpop to Bollywood to Classical to Jazz to good ole Rock and Roll, we pretty much listen to it all.

I tend to go on music binges from time to time such as it was with Bollywood, Lounge, and a few other genre which have yet to find their way to these pages. Drives my wife absolutely crazy listening to the same type of music for weeks at a time, but she is always a good sport about except for Techno and Psytrance which she insists makes her nauseous. The upside of all this is exposing our kids to different music from different cultures. Keeping these young minds open and accepting to many things is our goal as parents who are raising their kids outside the norms of society. In addition, a lot of the music being produced today is trash. The music that I grew up with, from the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's, was in my opinion, the best music ever made. I wanted to make sure our kids can know and access this great time in musical history. And hopefully they will give their kids the opportunity to enjoy this music as well.

I began making this music section many years ago, circa 2012, while still residing in the hot and humid countryside of Nara, Japan, and long before I got involved in the time consuming "hobby" of farming....another story. Needless to say, these pages kinda "went by the wayside" in favor of spending my days growing food for my family. This being the case, many genre are not listed, obviously, and there is a great disservice to many of the performers who have only a few songs listed. This is especially true in the Rock and Roll section with bands like The Beatles only showing links to a handful of songs....again, blame farming for this. Hopefully I can get back to these pages eventually and make them much more complete. For now, please enjoy the music already listed.
