This may or may not be a generational thing, but I’ve noticed how so many kids my age are lyric-obsessive. From the tattoos they get, to the Facebook statuses they make, to the homemade t-shirts for their favorite bands; the lyrics are front and center to what they share. Granted, I wasn’t around to observe my parents (or anyone their age) first hand, but they describe music as just that… music. It seems that those my age or around it appear so concerned with the singer is singing. Why is this?
Some bands can effectively take me back to the happy state-of-mind I was in when I first discovered them. Northstar is one of those bands.
I can only hope that in 1, 3, 5, whatever many years I’m still at my job, and I’m still getting that butterfly-like feeling when discussing the future of the product. Can’t express how exciting it is to be a part of something you really think will be a big, big deal.
