For whatever reason I'm really picky with the songs I add to my library, only enjoying a song or two from any particular artist. I probably add 1 new song to my playlist every month or so. So I thought to myself, what do most of these songs have in common. And then it hit me.
A lot of them contain piano.
Huh, what do you know.
This could stem from piano lessons back when I was a child. I wasn't really any good at it though, that would be my sister.
But due to this piano obsession it results in an interesting medley of songs on my computer. It seriously ranges from dubstep (which I normally dislike) to Korean pop and a lot of video game covers:
The piano starts at 3:30 if you don't want to listen to the whole thing.
My brain likes this song enough for me to download it due to a chunk of piano at the end of it. That strikes me as odd.
But it gets worse. Sometimes, I'll wonder why I'm liking a particular song and then suddenly I'll notice the piano in the background. An example is the next one. My girlfriend loves Korean pop music which I also cannot stand. Except this song:
And when I mentioned that there was piano she and her friends didn't even realize it. They've listened to this song way more than I have and yet after a few play-throughs my brain had picked up on the piano and decided it liked it.
The last example I want to share is from an app. I don't know how many of you play Tiny Tower but I've downloaded it and I was enjoying it.
Then I realized that part of the reason why was because I loved watching the little pixel people yawning.
Oh and the piano in the background music.
There's probably some genres that I lean towards, but for whatever reason adding a touch of piano to it will generally make me like it more.
And I've never found anyone else with a remotely similar taste in music.
