perhaps a bit presumptuous of me but I will do it anyways. As I know the age on these boards range from young to old (I feel I might be in the middle at 23) I do enjoy the things that we can share that are age-blind or neutral. Music is a passion of mine (listening, not playing :P) and I feel it has influenced my life a lot. I don't play games without my own music in the background, when I walk to class I got my ipod on and when I work out, gotta have the tunes.
I feel that in life certain songs hold meaning to different people for different aspects in their life. Whether it is serious or not, music does impact our decisions. Which brings me to my next point in particular of a song I was just listening to. Now I don't know if some of you all (if any) like Linkin Park (or dislike for whatever reason) but to me they are a band that I have been growing up with for over the past 11 years. I enjoy their music, and although it has changed (which artist doesn't?) I still enjoy and love their music.
The song in particular I would like to bring forward is named "blackout" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJqygAs2uq4) and while it may be a pun due to the blackout games thats not what this is about (lol). To me this song is about a new beginning, rising up from the ashes, rising up from the humiliation and rising up from defeat. This is the way I feel about Detroit, we are a team that is rising but still need that final push to make us great. Thought I would share my tad bit of inspiration on those that are willing to venture out and give this song a listen. While it may have some screaming (don't know if you all like that) it slows down that the end, and that part in particular is where I feel this notion of rising up and conquering the disbelievers to stem from. Thanks for reading!
