Describe a piece of music you like.
You should say:
- what it is
- why you like it
- how often you listen to it
and explain why it is a good piece of music.
Music is good for our soul. So, like everybody else, I also like to listen to different kinds of music, depending on my mood and situation. However, today, I would like to talk about a piece of music which I wish that I could listen to always.
The title of this music is called “Confide in me” which is a song recorded by Australian singer Kylie Minogue and taken from her fifth, self-titled studio album (1994). It was released as the album's lead single on 29 August 1994.
Incorporating elements of indie music, trip-hop, and Middle Eastern instrumentation, such as strings and percussion, this top-class pop song has experienced success in regions like Australia, United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, France, and New Zealand. It also became Minogue's only charting single in the US during the ’90s, having peaked at 39 on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
Having listened to this song in the year 2001 for the first time, I felt like, I finally found a piece of music that I could listen to for the rest of my life. In fact, since that year, I can’t really remember a week, which passed by without listening to it or enjoying it at least a few times. Of course, there are a number of reasons for which, I like this music. To begin with, that it is considered as one of the most iconic and innovative singles from the 1990s era as it successfully combined the appeal of “trip-hop” (a new musical genre from the 1990s) with middle eastern musical instruments like strings and percussion.
Anyway, I think it is a great piece of music, mainly because, no matter how many times I listen to it, it never seems to get old. This music has a very sweet and soft melody. Besides, its lyrics seem to perfectly match the general appeal (related to the power of seduction) of this music. Finally, this is a great piece of music also because it refreshes the mind and mood of its audience, no matter what time of the day they listen to it.
