Music is My Best Friend
Music is such an important part of life. Throughout my life when I have been happy, sad, or wanting to just spend time on my own to get things done music has always been the answer. Music is all around us; while driving, eating at a restaurant, and while we wait for our car to be serviced at the dealership. A life without music is not truly a full life at all.

It made me think about how music and artists are in today’s society. It seems that there is a lack of passion in a lot of today’s popular music, I wish so badly that I can have lived through the Beatles era and would have been able to watch them as they were out tour during their prime years. I like to think that the people who enjoy listening to the Beatles music, are kind, helpful, and creative individuals. That is why I think that person gave me his tickets, because he is all of these attributes, and true Beatles fans have all those characterizes. The Beatles just had that effect to attract a certain type of person and then make one an even better
