MUSIC is a big part of my life. In fact, I listed ‘I Want To Be a Popstar’ in my Preparatory Graduation. I was serious back then. I was mesmerized with the singing and dancing talent of Janet Jackson and I just love the creativity of Madonna which I often seen on her music videos via MTV and Channel V (Yes, I’m that old now).
Living in the province, I didn’t get the chance to enroll in piano, guitar or voice lessons due to the high fees. Since I won’t let that discourage me, I asked my parents to buy me Multiplex tapes instead. There was also a local karaoke channel where I’d wait for a song familiar to me to be played. I also spent more time listening to the radio, to my cassette tapes and watching MTV everyday. These are pre-YouTube and Spotify days, kids!
Movies, Music and Travel. These are three things that I am really passionate about. When I am not traveling, I would go to the cinema to escape from reality for a while. When I am on a long trip, I listen to music to still be inspired on my idle time. These three are related in one way or another.
I am happy to announce that I have an ongoing collaboration with a new platform called VIBBIDI! It’s a free web-based music streaming service that’s available on any device that has an internet connection. I’ve been using it for a month now and it is just fun to rediscover some of the albums that I loved in the past and to find new materials from emerging artists.
The thing that I love about Vibbidi is the feature called ‘Narratives’. In this section, music lovers share how a specific album means to them and how they can relate to the artists. As I publish this post, I’ve written the following:
“I’d love to be considered one of the quintessential British men who hasn’t given up, has seen the world and is strong, healthy with plenty of fire left in him. Maybe after reading my story, you might agree.”
– Excerpts from Matt Goss: More Than You Know
When I arrived home from the 6-hour bus trip from Baguio to Manila, my mind is already programmed to take a deep sleep once I reunite with my bed. I was quite surprised when I saw a big envelope in my bed. One of the books I purchased in eBay arrived. I am still on a high after reading Geri Halliwell’s If Only. Time to read a man’s perspective!
Getting to know Matt Goss through his music
I smiled upon seeing the hardcopy of Matt Goss: More Than You Know. It is the autobiography of ex-Bros lead singer Matt Goss. He may not be popular here in the Philippines, but I believe that once upon a time, he made a lot of teenage girls (and gays) worldwide scream for more.
