I'm somewhat of a pessimist, sometimes I may regard myself as a realist. However I don't really like putting labels on myself, only when necessary. So when it comes to music I have a certain disdain towards "happy" music, let me explain. I'm not a person who just lets negativity encompass my being, I just find most of these happy go lucky music a bit corny and generic. I'm a person who appreciates the dark elements of life more than the good. Let's be honest the darkest parts of the world is more intriguing than a bland happy feeling. Now of course I accept nuances, there can be an in between. Like I said before I think of myself as a realist, meaning I like a bit of truth in the music I listen to. So how about you guys? What are you preferences, do you like straight forward uplifting music, dark tunes or do you hold the position of middle ground?
