While I think the iPod and Mp3 players are terrific inventions; their popularity has changed how people buy music, right? Now the element of buying an album because you liked a couple of songs from that artist, but then finding other songs that you grew to love, that you initially knew nothing about, is something that is gone.
Now, technology allows us to find and purchase exactly and only the songs we want. And while I think this can be a great thing, I still can't help but wonder of all of those hidden treasures that go undiscovered that people don't know about, in our zeal to find only the "hits."
Life, love, work and our relationships can work in the same way can't they? We concentrate on the big things, sometimes forgetting to take the time to uncover the hidden treasures laying all around. The big things are important, but sometimes the unexpected can enrich our lives in ways we never thought of.
Sure, I tend to gravitate more towards the Carpenters' hits, and I know that they were their hits for a reason; but I'm glad I've also decided to go beyond just listening to "Yesterday Once More" and "Top of the World" and have taken the time to find the lesser known album cuts as well.
What are the album cuts you need to discover in your life and relationships?
