I have to be honest in saying that the love song just isn’t what it used to be. I almost feel bad for younger generations of music fans who don’t hear enough well-written, well-arranged and well-performed heartfelt love songs unless they “dig in the crates” of their parents’ old records or listen to “old school” radio stations. For example, there are game to some of today’s so-called R&B/Soul music that are just as explicit or sometimes more so than anything you’d hear on a Hip-Hop record.

There are even times that the fame gained by the movie soundtrack lasts longer compared to the movie itself. That is why they still release an album containing the original soundtrack of the movie. This is how music impacts film. They still gain profit even though the movie is no longer available in cinemas. Hence, if you are a great composer, then you would definitely earn thousands of dollars in Hollywood.

I come from a musical family. Arguably it has a lot to do with my Irish heritage but every time more than three members of my family were in the same room, someone would start singing. All national holidays and celebrations usually involved someone hauling out a guitar or accordion and any number of ‘family favorites’. Although I never learned to rock out on a hand organ, I carried a great respect for music into my adult life.
