There are voices that accompany the happiest days, others that remind you of unforgettable countries and trips, unforgettable people, and others that help you shed a tear. Music is a remedy for the heart, it is company when you need moments of melancholy or to jump for joy.
Music has no name or gender, but it does speak for and for them. The songs do not discriminate or have nationality either, but it does allow you to travel to Africa through Toto, or to Sinatra’s New York. Music can even dress up, the Winehouse hairstyle, Presley’s illustrated tackiness, Gainor’s sequins and strength, Lennon’s imagination, the fiery colors of Marley’s Jamaica, the mariachis that accompany Luis Miguel and the uncertainty of Raphaël…
Because with music, you never know what will happen, but it will always be playing. Although they change form, from vinyl to records and from records to Spotify. There are songs that belong to memories that come to mind with a drama typical of Michael Jackson ‘s Thriller .
