Everyone had a Walkman. My Walkman looked similar to the picture below. I swear it could play cassette tapes better than any other Walkman around. It was a given to me as a gift. It was for grading (passing grade 5,6 or 7) or possibly for Christmas or something of that nature.
The thing I remember the most about my Walkman is that I could play “WHATEVER” I wanted. I remember buying a tape recorder and taping much music and B.E.T songs as they played on TV.I use to yell at my mom and dad and even my sister to be quiet because I was trying to record (that did not go so well..). I remember listening to the tape as I walked to school and hearing my mom and her girlfriends talking news about people.ahah #sneaky I know..ahah
Back then no one could tell me what good music was or is, and today it remains the same. Know one hears music or lyrics the same. I say listen to what you want to listen to. You are your own personal “Walkman“.
Below is an image of what I saw:
StepOne: I used a 16 x 20 canvas to create this picture
StepTwo: I started to blend red/black/blue together to make the backdrop
StepThree: Once the backdrop was dry, I started to paint cassette tapes.
StepFour: I finally finished painting the cassettes. Now its time to add some detail
StepFive: Using black, detail is added to each cassette tape.
StepSix: Individual was added with head phones
StepSeven: Walkman (Complete)
Note: Each Cassette has a different genre of music for its title
What is the definition of good music?
