felt that a particular artist was like....a part of your life? I don't really know how to explain this but I have been listening to Elliott Smith for a year or so and I feel like this guy is like a part of my soul. Its not the fact that hes a good musician and I like him. I like the beatles, the who, etc. but i feel like I have grown emotionally attached to Elliott Smith's music, it is something I have never felt before. It's a particular passion that I cannot explain. Is this something normal?


EDIT: by the way, does anyone know where his grave is? I would like to see it......

I know exactly what you mean. It's weird - Jonathan Kreisberg's music (his original compositions, at least) hit me on such a personal level and I don't really know why.

Yea i gotcha, well kinda at least, Corey Smith, alothough im sure not alot of you have heard or him. Hes a country singer that sings amazing songs about having good times and being a retarted kid down in georgia. And thats exactly what i am, and i love every minute of it.

Yeah, same here. As a matter of fact, the bands that I really like seems to say what I think, which is pretty much why I like them. They lyrically describe what I think better than I can describe it myself. And then if they have killer instrumental accompaniment, then that just makes them that much better.
#12
Yeah, like sometimes i feel as if i know stephan jenkins or like we are old friends. so basically if i were to see him it would amaze me, but it would be so casual to me as if i already knew him for so long and he would be like wtf i dont know you then probably judo chop me dead

I'm that way with Porcupine Tree. They can capture just every emotion into one song. Same thing goes for Opeth.

Except....

Elliott's dead.

If he wasn't I'd be stalking him.

TS, when I saw the thread topic, I knew you'd say Elliott, and he was the first guy I thought of when I read the topic. His music is like a part of who I am.
#20
Lots of musicians have had that effect to an extent on me, but the main two would be Peter Doherty and Conor Oberst. Oh, and Jeff Buckley.
Their words speak to me, man.

I guess I'll have to say Reuben, as I've been following them since pretty much day 1, and I always go back to listen to everything they've released.

They're a really nice bunch of guys too!

All of Maynard's works: Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer.
Opeth
Katatonia

Those are all who I can think of off the top of my head who have really become part of who I am. And it's not that they are just my favourite artists... Because I'm more of a Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, Arsis, etc... type of guy. But they've really just found something deeper in me that nothing else can.

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

I'm surprised so many people here relate to bands because of their lyrics... never really been the case for me. The actual "music" is so much more important to me and determines whether I "connect" emotionally or not.

No. I don't define myself by the music I listen to or my hobbies, and to do so is destructive and results in a huge identity crisis later in life.

Define yourself by who you are. Your thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and views are you. I could get my ears and hands chopped off and never play guitar or hear music again, but I'd still be the exact same person.
#39
^ he never asked what bands define you, he just basically asked if theres a band that you feel connected to
