My odd liking of old music…

When I say old music I do not mean music from the 70s or 80s, I mean music from the 40s, 50s and 60s. In the past I have had a very diverse interest in music. Most people listen to a couple of genres that they like and stick to them. I however loved a range of music from rock and metal to classical and folk; a bit of a weird mix I think now that I look at it written down.

Recently I have taken an interest in jazz music and not specifically modern jazz music, I’m talking 50s jazz music. Thing is, even though it is old I find most of the jazz music from that period to be some of the most diverse, soothing and uplifting music I have heard. It all started when I chanced upon this royalty free jazz radio (link¬†Sorry, I can’t find the original source of the file but this is still the file I use). Since I found it I find that when I am working or just want some background music it is my go to source. Every time I put it on it seems to put me in a better mood.

It seems like I have been on a heck of a rollercoaster when it comes to music tastes. To be honest I have found that lately I have been gravitating towards more music like old jazz or classical (more relaxing music) in general. I don’t know if this is anything to do with stress but either way, I love it.
