“Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” -Origin unknown

This quote might be true, but for those of us talentless souls with a passion for music, there’s no other choice. As a child, music was always playing in my house, and my parents even painted an album cover (Steve Winwood’s Arc of a Diver) on a wall. In the last few years, I’ve started painting lyrics on whatever I could – canvas, umbrellas, and even tables. Music is the one constant in my life, through good and bad times. My intention for A Melody, The Memory is to share some of my thoughts on music, as well as memories associated with it. It may be reminiscent of High Fidelity at times with top 5 (or 10) lists. Other times I may review albums or just talk about whatever I’m listening to at the time. Most importantly, I hope to take a deeper look at music (and myself because that comes as naturally as breathing) and share some great music in the process. Because I like a challenge, post titles will also come from a song and include lyrics from the song that relate to the subject in one way or another.

I’ll also note that even though the blog is music-heavy, I will write about other forms of entertainment (mainly TV) from time to time, as well, if I have a topic I feel particularly strongly about. If you know me, you know that there are quite a few things I really love, so that’s bound to happen often…


Once a rock star… Wait, just kidding. I have no musical talent.
