I'd consider myself to be pretty well rounded when it comes to my music tastes. I basically listen to everything. And thankfully to those around me I've been introduced to many genres I wouldn't normally seek out.
Ever since hearing a Metallica song at Bike Week I've been interesting in uploading some of their tunes to my iPod. After searching for songs I couldn't believe how many of the songs I actually know. I found myself singing along. Me, singing along to Metallica? That just didn't seem right. That's when I realized it was some of their older stuff. Things started to fall into place. Back in the day, when I was in 5th grade, Justin would drive me to school in the morning. He'd be jamming out to Metallica. Of course I also remember him drumming on his drum set in his bedroom to these songs. At the time I was indifferent towards the music.
I'm sure Justin hated taking me to school, but I must admit I enjoyed that small amount of time we got together. Even if we never talked in the car. As with so much music, Metallica takes me back to a simpler time with fond memories.
