What does music mean to you?

My favorite kinds of music are rap, drum

& bass, dubstep and

raggae. I listen to music about 3 hours every day. The music I listen to depends on what I'm doing. I listen to calm songs when I study, before going to sleep or when I’m just chilling. When I cycle or do exercises I listen to more energetic songs. When I listen to some band or artist, I listen to the whole album, not only

Music is a very important part of my life. When I was a child I attended a music school. I played the classical guitar. It was so boring, so after 3 years I gave up. I also had an adventure with drums which lasted about a year. I listen to music when I go to school, after school, when I study. But nothing can replace live music, so I am at concerts as often as it is possible. I like to sing, but I am not really good at it, so I do it only when there is nobody at home.

What does music mean to me? I am completely crazy about music. I couldn't live without it. For example when I go to school, wait for a bus at the bus stop, get back home or do something else, I have headphones on my ears all the time! I really love my iPod! Yes, I definitely love it. Music makes

because it's the song we decided to put in the choices of our country and it's a type of music I like. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the rock bands that really put me into the vibes of music. And to conclude, Skrillex is an artist I discovered last year and who makes me like dubstep and I'm grateful to him.

I have chosen these three songs because I love them, and I have listened to them before. I don't know the other songs but I think they are amazing too.
