1001 de [tip de artă] de [acțiune specifică] într-o viață

La un moment dat am postat aici lista celor 1001 de cărți de citit într-o viață. Îmi plac listele, pentru că sunt interesante. Și cele de recomandări au șansa să recomande chestii bune. Așa că la un moment dat am decis să iau de la cap la coadă lista celor 1001 de albume de ascultat într-o viață.

A fost cea mai plictisitoare idee pe care am avut-o vreodată. A început de la un Frank Sinatra în care toate melodiile erau cam o apă și-un pământ, a continuat cu un Elvis Presley care nu se putea decide ce să bage în album, așa că a băgat tot ce-a putut, pe urmă mult jazz și chestii pe care nu le distingeam prea tare una de alta, multe nu prea grozave.

După vreo 30 de albume prin care am trecut mai cu răbdare, mai sărind peste melodii plictisitoare, mai zicându-mi că o să devină mai ok situația, am renunțat. Pentru că mamă ce plictiseală.

În schimb cele 1001 de melodii de ascultat într-o viață sunt mult mai interesante și mai variate. Mi se pare că merită. Sunt melodii bune, sau cel puțin care îți spun ceva, care reflectă oarecum epoca din care fac parte.

În plus, poți simți cum se modifică stilul epocii, cum muzica se transformă câte puțin de-a lungul anilor, cum se schimbă stilurile, cum sunetul devine din ce în ce mai profesionist. E un fel de istorie muzicală fără comentarii în care începi să-ți dai seama de contextul în care au apărut unele dintre cele mai cunoscute melodii de azi.

Nu fiecare melodie e genială și nu cred că presupune cineva că ar trebui să-ți placă toate, dar experiența de a le lua de la început și a trece prin ele e un fel de aventură muzicală.
