There’s all kinds of music to write to out there – hell, I’m pretty sure we feature all of them on this list – but there are certain styles that have a direct path to the part of my brain that will get me to start writing. Nick Rezo’s Post London is one of them.
I have always enjoyed this song because it speaks of the strange rituals people use to maintain balance and happiness in their lives. There is a sense of secrecy attached, as these small routines take on a life of their own.
Creativity often arises after experiencing love and the loss of it. I appreciate this song about heartbreak because it balances vulnerability with a sense of pride. The last full minute of the song is my favorite.
I was going to be a doctor – just like my dad – but music kept getting in the way. Whether it was zoning out instead of studying, or skipping school to hang out with Adrian (who had the Yamaha QX1 Sequencer,) the older I got the less interesting academics seemed and the more attractive music became.
