my love for the blues

Why did I build this fanlisting for the Blues? Well, to me, the Blues isn't just a music genre. It is an emotional state: a wholly human art form and a path to self-awareness. It is a complete lifestyle in itself that defies time and place, and can exist in all of us. I also feel that the Blues isn't just a time of depression: it can act as the simplest and yet the most precise musical weapon that a musician uses to channel his most humane realities, and relieve his Blues into a state of eloquent joy. There is something ethereal and yet so human to be discovered in the quiet intensity and dark elegance of Blues music, and since every Blues musician has a story to tell, my ears and eyes and heart and soul are always open for the Blues.

Furthermore, I'm fascinated by musical history and development, particularly in North America and Africa. The Blues (and my love for American folk music too) focuses all my interests into one big messy gloop, so that everytime I find a book on the Blues or hear a Blues song or read a transcript of a lyric, my soul gets a little hungry for a self-made history lesson and I like to read up on adaptations, meanings, origins, the whole shebang. And the Blues have broadened my educational and spiritual horizons so much with history and humanity in the most human sense of the word, and all within its gorgeously eloquent framework, that I'm always left intrigued at what a Blues song has to offer to me. Even if I've heard it a hundred times before, it will never age in quality and meaning.

So! If you find yourself unable to explain your love for the Blues, and are generally a fan of this intense musical form, why not join the fanlisting, and add your name to the growing list of Blues fans? :)
