I love working with different musicians in the studio, that’s a real joy working with someone for the first time.
Dirty martinis and music – that’s the big motto in our family. We get the booze going, and the music starts playing. Always old-school hip-hop. Jay-Z. Tribe Called Quest. The Pharcyde. My parents love that stuff.
Egon Schiele is my favorite painter. There’s just something about art – photography, painting, music, plays – whatever you see, sometimes there’s a gut reaction that’s more important or more visceral than what your brain is thinking about. You can’t explain that reaction. It’s like what happens when you fall in love.
Albert Hammond, Jr.
I love music. It’s always been very dear to me. It’s a big passion.
One of things I’d love to do one day is a Shakespeare with Trevor Nunn. I’ve done musicals with him, but never Shakespeare. There’s no one better.
As a musician, you just want to be able to do what you love.
I love to perform not only music, but to make performances extremely visual, and create almost a magical fantasy. It’s really an uplifting style of art that combines visuals and music in very dreamlike ways.
We love a good, hyped sound, but when it starts to sound insincere, that’s when I lose interest. I hope that our music, even if it sounds polished, doesn’t sound insincere.
Music has always been my first love, so making music happen is a big priority of mine.
People ask you all the time, ‘Why do you do this? Why don’t you quit, man, take your money and go home?’ I just do it because I love making music.
The music field was the first to break down racial barriers, because in order to play together, you have to love the people you are playing with, and if you have any racial inhibitions, you wouldn’t be able to do that.
I know there’s a certain love and affection for the homemade on the Internet, and I’m all for that, too, and I appreciate it in alternative music, and I appreciate it in B-movies and in Sundance, independent films.
Well, I love what you would call boys’ music, you know, the prodigy, banging techno, music that girls generally don’t like.
I feel blessed and humbled that people have loved my music. Nothing would be possible without their acceptance.
A. R. Rahman
I love music so much. I’ve got something going all the time. I’ve gotta be singing. I’ve gotta be creating music, or I’m not happy.
I’m not a big fan of the thought that you can become a star by winning a contest. I’m sort of old-fashioned. I think people need to get out there and they need to work and they need to do their music because they love it. If they become successful, then great, and if they are not, whatever.
I try to make an album that reflects what I love about country music. It’s not just all about happy parties all the time. There are some sad songs.
As a songwriter, pop music really is a love and a joy and a science, and I feel like a lot of people look at pop music with a very formulaic perspective in numbers and patterns, but an outsider would think that the process is very natural.
I play guitar and I love the Beatles and melodic music.
I love seeing live music.
I think most music provides the same messages – whether it be ‘I’m unhappy’ or ‘I love a girl.’ I just liked the package of rap music.
If you listen to a lot of the songs that are popular now, there’s very little melody in there. People love the beat. But to musicians, it’s melody, because we understand how elusive it is and how hard it is to hold.
I think you really have to remember what you loved about making music in the first place. Ultimately, people can be like, ‘We’ve seen this dude in many movies,’ but if they hear a song and they’re feeling it, they can look past all the personal things and not hold it against you that you’re also an actor.
I also loved musicals because I was a dancer.
Pop music can absorb so many peculiar talents, ranging from the completely nonmusical poseur who just uses music as a kind of springboard for a sense of style, to people who just love putting all that complicated stuff together, brick by brick, on their computers, to people like me who like playing conceptual games and being surprised.
I never wanted to really make a career out of doing Christian music exclusively, but I love it to my core. I love music. I love what I’m doing now.
I equally love both, classic rock and hip-hop. I love all music, really, and I really use classic rock a lot. I’m heavily influenced by that melodically in my music. I can’t really separate the two.
I’ve never been bored in my life, man. I’ve never been bored or lonely. Are you kidding? No way! I’m an orchestrator, a musician, a producer. I love everything. I’ve studied languages from Farsi to Greek to French, Swedish, Russian… How can you get bored?
I always loved all kinds of music. I would watch musicals a lot as a kid, on TV, watch the Fred Astaire movies. I’d watch ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ I was a big Jerry Lewis fan, and they’d have these big bands and someone singing – some siren, or some guy singing some gorgeous song. I was always enamored of that style of music.
I can play punk rock, and I love playing punk rock, but I was into every other style of music before I played punk rock.
I think, for one thing, all of us remember those teenage years and those songs that we fell in love with and the music scene that we were part of. So, in a certain way, music cuts through time like almost nothing else. You know, it makes us feel like we’re back in an earlier moment.
In ‘Seesaw,’ I played Gittel Mosca, and because it was a musical, I loved it more because I was able to do anything. I was able to use all parts of me that I don’t get to use… the comedy and the singing and the dancing.
I can’t understand Urdu, Bahasa or Russian, but when the Pakistani Faiz, the Indonesian Rendra and the Russian Rosdentvensky declaim, I can feel the living throb of rhythm and music, the warmth and passion of their poetry, as do the hundreds, not a mere roomful, of poetry lovers in the audience.
F. Sionil Jose
I love making records; I love making music; I love writing songs.
Being queer you’re supposed to adore figure skating. It’s a sport, not an art. I love the costumes and hate the music and of course I worship Johnny Weir because so does he. Also he’s real. It’s a full gay thing and it always has been.
Working on music is the funnest thing for me, and I love it, and I could do it all day, all night.
I started out playing traditional jazz, and I still do: I love standards, I love the music. But it must move on, and it must live and breathe, and continue to grow, and continue to change, and continue to mesh with other music – all that kind of stuff. Jazz can be on the playground too, you know.
Setting my mind on a musical instrument was like falling in love. All the world seemed bright and changed.
William Christopher Handy
Music is where I have the most creative freedom, but I love producing. To me, that’s kind of where all the action is. You get a chance to have your hands in every aspect of a film. From picking a director, sometimes picking a writer, to the actors, the wardrobe, set design, editing, music, and marketing.
I still feel like that 17-year-old-kid that fell in love with country music, but I also am allowed to write songs about being a man, too, which I think is the coolest place I’ve ever been in my life.
I know, for me, ‘Grease’ was one of the first musicals that I can really remember watching as a kid, and I kind of fell in love that that genre.
I’ve always been real close to film world. I love film, and I will do things in film, but music is more satisfying. It feels more like me.
Robert Coppola Schwartzman
I love the theater as much as music, and the whole idea of getting across to an audience and making them laugh, making them cry – just making them feel – is paramount to me.
I never thought then I’d be doing what I’m doing now. At my high school, being on the girls soccer team was the cool thing to do, but that was definitely never going to happen for me, so I played music. Not because everyone thought it was awesome, but for the love of it.
I love dancing to the radio every morning, to start the day with such passion. Otherwise, life is too sad. My little daughter and I like dancing to classical music: Bach and Schubert.
I loved ‘White Christmas’ for the music aspect. I was into musical theater.
‘White Christmas’ is one of my favorite movies, so I’ve always just had a love for that kind of golden era musical.
I feel like vocals are to music what portraits are to painting. They’re the humanity. Landscapes are good and fine, but at the end of the day everyone loves the Mona Lisa.
If I wanted to be a pop singer, I would have done that 20 years ago. I love country music.
The reason I like doing these acting projects is because no matter how much acting I do, I’ll always have music in my life. I love having both.
I think I made this decision that I just loved making music, and it didn’t matter what level I got to do it on, and ‘Fight Song’ was this declaration that I’m going to keep going, and I’m going to keep believing in myself, even if it seems like it’s impossible.
I love putting the music together. It’s like art.
Even today, skiffle is a defining part of my music. If I get the opportunity to just have a jam, skiffle is what I love to play.
My mum loved Joan Armatrading and used to play her records all the time and even took me to see her a couple of times when I was really quite young. I didn’t really like her music back then because my mum was always playing it, but I’ve grown to appreciate it more.
If you took away all pain, if everyone lived forever, everything would be bland, flat and boring; there would be no reason for art, music, newspapers, love because we would all be in a mono state of happiness.
I love New York, it’s always been my home. It has everything – music, fashion, entertainment, impressive buildings, huge parks, street cafes. And it’s very international, with people from all over the world.
I grew up listening to The Band. I love Lowell George. I love Little Feat, and I was listening to some Springsteen, some of the deep album cuts. I just like the looseness of that kind of music. It all feels like they did it in one take. They let whatever happened happen. If it felt good, they kept it.
I love what I do. I was given the most incredible gift that can be given to anyone. I could never imagine a world without music, and I feel grateful that I’ve been given the ability to share that.
Since I loved underground music, I tried to carve a space for feminism within it. Those were my hopes.
I get to go make music, and I get paid to do it, and this is what people love me for. I couldn’t ask for anything greater, so how could I not go in the studio and make a million songs?
I love pop music, but at the same time, I’m seeking to write whatever I’m organically inclined to.
Mexican music runs through my veins. I loved it. Growing up, my father didn’t allow us to listen to English music at home. That’s all I heard. I had no choice.
I really, really love music. I’m affected by it and uplifted by it, and made to laugh and cry, and almost fall in love with the person who has made me feel so brilliant and communicated so profoundly to me.
My health is wonderful. I work out. I’m working. Playing music. I have a beautiful wife, a nice home, a nice car, I got money in the bank. I got three beautiful dogs that love me. Like I said, I’m blessed. I survived.
I’m hopefully touring with Colin Baker next year in Perfect Strangers. I have performed with Sylvia Simms in poetry and music evenings. I would love to do those for the rest of my career – they are so fun and witty.
I can never say that I will never return to musical theatre. There may be a part in the future that I really want to do. I love plays as well. I am very open to ideas. I hope to do many things in the future.
It was very interesting in my world, because I grew up as a fan and I did not know that there was a thing called R&B, pop, country, classical – I just knew that I loved music.
I’d love to do my own music for sure. I’d love to have a band.
If you play music for the right reasons, the rest of the things will come. The right reason to play music is that you love it. That’s why I play music. I never imagined that I was going to be doing this, especially because I never thought of myself as an instrumentalist.
I like fashion, but I love, love, love music and film; they are my two passions. I would love to pursue my acting and my love of music more than anything.
I want to work on projects that I feel passionate about and do things that are fun and challenging. I would love to do a live musical. I’m not interested in doing the same thing over and over or the fame and exposure that comes with it. When people keep doing that, they just end up doing the same dumb stuff again and again.
If someone wants to say ‘I love you’ in a straight play, they say it, and then it’s the other person’s turn to talk. But in a song, you can sing about it for another three minutes. The musical form has that unique opportunity to express at length what joy really feels like.
Yeah, it’s a lot harder to find a musical partner than a love partner.
But what was my motivation was music, and the fact that I love to move around. I’m always moving around.
I love painting and music, of course. I don’t know nearly as much about them as I know about poetry. I’ve certainly been influenced by fiction. I was overwhelmed by War and Peace when I read it, and I didn’t read it until I was in my late 20s.
I’ve always loved music, not necessarily just the Osmonds.
I love the musicality of English. French sounds flat. In English, you can play with pitch.
It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical… I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.
It’s so wide; that’s what I love most about my career. It’s been varied, and the music has been varied, because I find myself getting bored pretty easily. So for me, to work in the studio has been great. I didn’t go on the road; I just worked on a different project every day, a different kind of music, and that’s the challenge I love.
Harvey Mason, Jr.
I’m not trying to compete with any other revival soul acts. It’s just Leon Bridges, a kid from Fort Worth trying to be himself and give people hope. It’s great music to dance to and just love.
I just had lunch with Slash two days ago. He loves Axl. He holds no grudges towards him. Twenty years of great music wasn’t created because of some stupid grudge. That’s a shame.
For the music business, social networking is brilliant. Just when you think it’s doom and gloom and you have to spend millions of pounds on marketing and this and that, you have this amazing thing now called fan power. The whole world is linked through a laptop. It’s amazing. And it’s free. I love it. It’s absolutely brilliant.
I did ‘Love Letter’ and ‘Write Me Back,’ and those were fun albums for me to do because they took me back to music I love.
I can play the flute. Music was my favourite A-level, and I used to love composing my and stylising my voice to sound like 90’s singing sensation Tori Amos.
Because I was a dancer when I was a kid, I have so much empathy for these young girls who are so drawn to something lovely in music and in movement, and yet they encounter a world full of judgment and criticism of 11-year-old artists and bodies.
My music is inspired by my life: the people in my life, the people I have relationships with, the people I love, the people that make me feel something.
Jillian Rose Banks
I still love playing music. It was all I ever wanted to do, and I got the chance to do it.
A lot of the music I write is about love. Sometimes I won’t understand how I am feeling until I write a song about it.
I do listen to music. Movie scores, exclusively, because it’s all about mood and nonspecificity. I love the way modern movie scoring is all about nonspecificity. You know, if I shuffled the tracks from ‘Inception,’ I challenge you to tell me which is which.
I definitely love record stores. And worked in many over the years. Having said that, it’s not necessarily that I love vinyl per se. I mean, I’m happy to use CDs and MP3s: to me, it’s the music that’s top priority. I do have a good collection of vinyl, but I rarely actually pull it out.
I’ve been told the weirdest things: ‘Yeah, I love taking a bath to your music!’ or ‘I gave birth to my daughter while listening to your music.’
I love art, and it plays a huge role in my life. It’s definitely one of my greatest joys, and I’m a bit fanatical about certain painters and poets and musicians and sculptors.
I embrace country music because of love, a love of what I came from.
We’re proud to be lifetime musicians and a band that lives like a band and loves the music and gives our lives to it.
In ’92 – ’93, I was at that age when I was looking for my identity and that’s when I found dance music and I really fell in love with it.
Armin van Buuren
When I’m with my wife, I know she’s a beautiful woman. I know that, and more than that, it’s what she is inside. She’s beautiful inside; she loves music like I do. That’s the thing that brought us together and probably keeps us together.
I love fantasy. I love horror. I love musicals. Whatever doesn’t really happen in life is what I’m interested in. As a way of commenting on everything that does happen in life, because ultimately the only thing I’m really interested in is people.
From the first moment that I can remember, I had identified myself as a bass player and it had everything to do with my father, who was a bass player. And he loved music, you know, as much as anybody I’ve ever seen. And that dynamic I just thought as somehow was a straight pass to me.
I respect artists so much, and I absolutely love music as the ultimate art.
You’re born with a certain love of something. Music was my first love, and that’s the world I work from. Growing up, I was surrounded by artists, so my upbringing supported this lifestyle.
I have no love for myself as a human being, but I have immense pride in the music I make.
I discovered after going to music festivals that I am a rock fan. I love the guitars, the phrasing, and the abandon of rock fans.
My love, growing up on the Prairies, was country music.
I had all the normal interests – I played basketball and I headed the school paper. But I also developed very early a great love for music and literature and the theater.
I love the pioneers like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, but when I write music, it comes out in my own way.
I love Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert – they write from the heart. But it’s hard to find a country music lover in L.A. None of my friends really listen to it, and they hate getting in the car with me because I just blast Taylor Swift.
The great thing about Nashville back in the day was that the old guys hung out where the young guys were. The established writers like Harlan Howard and Jack Clement gave us encouragement and passed the guitar, you know? Chet Atkins let me sit in on his sessions. Everybody was good to us, and everybody loved the music.
I loved music, and in my ninth year at MIT, I decided to buy a hi-fi set. I figured that all I needed to do was look at the specifications. So I bought what looked like the best one, turned it on, and turned it off in five minutes, the sound was so poor.
I’d love to be a saxophonist. I don’t know why, but I pretend I’m the saxophonist when I listen to music. I have about as much chance playing the sax as I do learning how to fly.
I try not to shut any doors before I even get there. I like doing music. I like singing. I love all music. Music kind of goes hand in hand with acting anyway.
My dad loved black singers. So listening to New Orleans music, eventually I wanted to play an instrument.
I love classical music and often listen to symphonies or opera in the morning.
What I’d love to do is work with kids in the U.S. to raise their awareness and encourage them to be global citizens. We’re all connected these days; we can listen to the same music as kids all around the world and share our ideas.
Music’s another big love of mine.
I don’t love the whole Hollywood mentality, but I do love the weather and how motivated everyone is around here. It motivates me to make fun music. I’m an East Coaster – I’m from New Jersey, so I’ll probably feel like that forever.
I first came to Brazil in the Sixties. Then I started coming back every year since touring most of the country. I grew to love it, the people, the music. I thought this is where I belong. I’ve been living in Brazil for the past 23 years. I call it my stress-free country.
I know that I’m here because of the grace of God. But I also know that I’ve been given this second chance for a specific reason, and that is to bring love to the world again through the voice of my music, and I’m so honored to be able to do it. I’m so blessed that God has chosen me to do that.
Music is a lady that I still love because she gives me the air that I breathe. We need all sorts of nourishment. And music satisfies and nourishes the hunger within ourselves for connection and harmony.
I would love to continue working behind the scenes in music – to produce and manage up-and-coming musical talent would be a dream!
The whole issue is that everyone would love to do theater, but it doesn’t pay enough, so to do music theater on TV, that’s the ultimate dream.
My dad put me with all the greatest people. It definitely helped me now, because I know so much more about music and composition. It’s cool. I love Pops. I’m super thankful for everything he’s done to help my career.
Ty Dolla Sign
I love the music, I love the times, so to me that was exciting personally just to play something that starts in 1986 with graduating high school, we’ve got a great soundtrack in the pilot.
I love being a part of the country-music community.
I love the ’70s. I think the ’70s had the best music and the best movies.
Michael Jai White
Even though I am signed to an American label, I want Australia to fall in love with my music because if it doesn’t work here, it won’t work anywhere.
I’m an advocate of music in schools. It’s important to me that music is in as many schools as possible across this country and across the world. I think that it’s a lost art form because kids aren’t as exposed to it as maybe they used to be, or should be. I was exposed heavily to jazz and that’s why I love it.
I pretty much spent my twenties as a musician and taking acting classes. I loved it. I was at UCLA getting As and Bs in English and creative writing, basically trying to stay out of the Army. All I really wanted to do was play music.
Robert David Hall
No matter what is happening in life or in the world – war, natural disaster, poor health, pain, the death of loved ones – if existence is filled with art, music and literature, life will be fulfilling, a joy.
It’s VH1, it’s everywhere, and you know music is just the world right now. People love music.
I’m completely absorbed by Peter Guralnick’s definitive, two-part biography of Elvis Presley: ‘Last Train To Memphis’ and ‘Careless Love.’ Meticulously researched, this is a compelling mix of history, myth-busting, and, of course, some timeless music.
We’re all music fans and we just love being in a band, and that’s why we do it.
I always loved music, and I always wanted to make a film about it, but I could never do it because of the censorship that was around.
I love making music, though. I love playing.
Yes, I would loved to have just sustained myself through my art, but less than one in a billion musicians gets that life. So rather than being like, ‘I’m an exception!’, like a moron, I thought I’d get a real job.
I would love to go into musicals. I got a chance to sing in ‘Big Momma’s House,’ and that’s something I would love to do more. But only in Broadway or in the movies. I don’t think I would ever seek a career as a singer.
I loved the music, but the excesses of rock n’ roll never really appealed to me at all. I couldn’t see the point of getting up in front of a lot of people when you weren’t in control of your wits.
People send me CDs all the time because I love music. It’s great. I listen to them in my dressing room or in my car.
The musicians in the band, and myself as a performer, love the risks of the unpredictable and the feeling of jumping off cliffs musically.
I’m really a singer, so I love songs and I love singing. I like rap music, but I didn’t grow up freestyling.
The work I’ve done through my Common Culture Music series has enabled me not only to share my joy of music at scale but also promote the artists I love.
Ironically, being a coach on ‘The Voice’ and spending time with those kids, Xenia and Dia especially, I learned a lot about myself. It reminded me how lucky I am that this happened for me, and it kind of lit the spark inside me again for my love of music.
The first time I toured the U.K. was in the early ’90s with Billy Pilgrim, so I know how much the people there love music.
I love architecture almost as much as I love my musicals.
If I was rich enough, I would love to launch my own record label. I would love to try and give all my musically talented friends a start in the industry.
Sometimes I feel like music has made love to me.
It’s a bit like school camp, shooting a film. Everyone’s on heat. It’s a strange energy. It’s full of adrenalin. I funnel my excess energy in funny little ways. I do a lot of dancing in my trailer. I love music.
As for the symphonic activities… when I was a student at the Eastman School of Music, I became exposed to a lot more musical forms, elements, opportunities, and I fell in love with strings and their uses.
I love music, and after my first experience with movies, I can’t wait to do more.
I want to continue to remain present and grateful each day that I get to be doing what I love. Making and performing music I believe in.
I have loved Elliott Carter’s music for many years.
I love playing in Germany. I love playing anywhere where people are going to enjoy the music. Germany is especially nice to play.
I love my music, so I want to produce, write, and serve my music. I’ve had to learn about EQ frequencies and programming and space and clutter and how to be a better piano or bass player – everything.
Analog, electronic, whatever it happens to be, I simply love and adore literally every aspect of making music.
At the risk of sounding hopelessly romantic, love is the key element. I really love to play with different musicians who come from different cultural backgrounds.
Mahavishnu John McLaughlin
My father was a jazz tenor sax player. He played in a lot of big bands. So I had that sound around me all the time. The first record that really caught my ear was Clifford Brown’s ‘Brownie Eyes.’ I grew up listening to John Coltrane and Illinois Jacquet. This is where I come from… I love improvisational music.
Actually, I would love to make a music video. Maybe it would finally put to rest those persistent rumours that have followed me throughout my career – particularly when I was on camera performing – that I had died.
I think the future looks great for music, musicians, bass players, and all we love about music.
I am a classical music lover – not necessarily the contemporary stuff, but the old stuff.
I was never really a Mod. I thought I was more of a beatnik with the brown corduroy jacket, blue jeans, etc. I loved the music Mods liked, and I loved the clothes, but I didn’t have any money to spend on them.
I loved the Brazilian music I played. But this is finally me. For the first time I think it’s really me.
For me, music is my joy. It’s my happiness. As long as this medicine, this chemo is in my body, I didn’t have my love, my joy.
There weren’t a lot of career opportunities in crazy-fast hardcore punk, so you didn’t have a lot of ambition, just the love and passion to play music with your friends.
The only love affair I have ever had was with music.
I love Broadway. And, I listen to country music, which I think a lot of people find surprising.
The only thing I’m really, truly good at is music – I just love it.
I was at a school in England, a prep school, from the ages of 8 and 13. And every play they did was a musical. Parents love musicals. And I don’t sing. It was driving me crazy. ‘We’re doing ‘Macbeth.’ ‘Yes!’ ‘The musical!’ And I was always in the chorus, because of course, in all the main parts, you had to be able to sing.
I’d love to give my music to someone who really likes to wow the crowd. I feel like half the time I just want to hide in the dressing room!
My Dad died during the flu epidemic in 1918 when I was 4 years old. He left a lot of classical recordings behind that I began listening to at an early age, so he must have been a music lover.
I love music and I love acting. I always keep that in the forefront, not all the other distractions around me.
I do love brash pop music. It’s fun.
Romy Madley Croft
I adore watching movies; movie marathons are my favorite pastime. I can watch up to five movies back to back. I also love music and like reading whenever I get the time.
Art is basically communication, and I think everyone who’s a music lover has had that experience where a record or a recording has kept you company when no one else is around. And I think that is what I’m hoping that people get out of my music.
I love going on tour and playing music for people.
Music has always been a part of me and art in general. I love visual art as well.
I am in love with old school funk and soul music. That’s what I grew up listening to, and I want to bring that style back with my music. I love artists like Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and more!
I’ve been playing music since I was 12. I love performing live.
My husband, Gabriele, is a musician, and I love music, so you can bet it’s a really important part of our home entertaining repertoire, even if it means Gabriele making a really good playlist for a dinner party.
With L.A. it’s like, yeah, there’s Death Row and whatever. But I always wanted to know what those artists were sampling. It’s how I fell in love with music.
Ty Dolla Sign
When I hear that young people have come to the theater for the first time to listen to opera, I’m very happy. Because it’s the same thing that happened to me as a child. When I first heard the tenor voice, I immediately fell in love with this kind of music.
I got the regular call, that they were doing a Broadway musical of Hairspray, and would I come and audition. I was familiar with the movie, because at the time it came out my lover wrote for Premiere magazine, and we had to see everything.
Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do – can love things that no one else can love. We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music. You know what to do.
‘Free the Gang,’ that’s my favorite song because it’s so real. All my music is real, it’s authentic, but it’s something about that song that I love.
I felt like when I got with Kanye, and we discussed me being on G.O.O.D. Music, he just really took me to a place in regards to music that I love and music that I had made previously. We had a clear understanding of what I wanted to make, and he just seemed like he was an advocate for hardcore, uncompromising hip-hop.
Feelings aroused by the touch of someone’s hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith – all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.
I do love the music aspect of the Internet. The Internet made me.
I loved music – listening and playing – but of course I could not imagine I would be a professional musician. It really happened step by step.
I have really diverse tastes, which can be problematic sometimes, but it’s good because it means I’m always listening to as much music as possible. I love listening to music, whatever genre it is.
I made numerous attempts to find a way to do it all, to be a creative singer, songwriter, producer, and to be the mother, daughter, sister, lover, wife. And the thing about music is, with me, that she’s a harsh mistress. She does not come to me in the midst of stress.
All I tell artists is, ‘Do what you love. Never let anybody talk you into changing what your musical idea is just to try to get a hit, because you’re chasing your tail that way. It’s not going to happen, and if you’re successful, you have to do it the rest of your life. Stay true to it and do it for the sake of the art.’
My parents loved classical music. And my father adored Mozart. But for some reason, I always had a reaction against it.
I love scoring. Putting music to picture is a rewarding challenge and one that relies on interpretation of emotion – as in, what is the pivotal feeling in a scene and which character’s point of view is driving it at any given moment?
My debut album, ‘Forget the World,’ is all about not listening to the negativity around you and to continue to do what you love, no matter what people think. I love what I do. Dance music is my passion, my life. There is no greater feeling than being one with my fans, partying to the music we love.
I love musical theatre because I love doing a live performance eight times a week.
Music was our wife, and we loved her. And we stayed with her, and we clothed her, and we put diamond rings on her hands.
I love Barbra Streisand and Sade who’ve both had careers in soul and I want my music to have that timeless quality that isn’t necessarily now.
I do covers for CDs and LPs of music that I like, reissues of old-time music, and then I’m inspired to make some kind of drawing based on this love of the music. I don’t do album covers or CD covers for groups or musicians I don’t like or have no interest in.
If I went crazy and tried to make pop music, my band wouldn’t record it! I love them too much to do that.
When I think about atheist friends, including my father, they seem to me like people who have no ear for music, or who have never been in love.
A. N. Wilson
This person loves tangerines, This person loves raspberries – and my son won’t even look at berries. Isn’t that amazing? And so I have to apply that to music; otherwise, I would always hide in a hole because of all the people that don’t like Coldplay.
That’s my contribution – running a sound, healthy company that serves millions of customers well and employs hundreds of thousands of people. What else am I going to do? I’m not an artist. I’m not a writer. I’m not a musician. I’d love to be a tennis player or musician. I’m not.
I can’t even tell anyone how it feels when I’m acting, I don’t mean to say that I don’t have to try. But there’s something in my heart that explodes, and I feel like I understand. When I’m acting, I feel like so in control and so centered. This is something that I solely get from acting and music. It’s like love itself.
Actually, I’ve had very little classical training, although I love listening to classical music very much.
There are only two things: love, all sorts of love, with pretty girls, and the music of New Orleans or Duke Ellington. Everything else ought to go, because everything else is ugly.
Through my work, I’ve learned that if I love it, whether it’s music, acting or any type of entertainment, I can overcome any of the obstacles that come my way.
I believed in fictional characters as if they were a part of real life. Poetry was important, too. My parents had memorized poems from their days attending school in New York City and loved reciting them. We all enjoyed listening to these poems and to music as well.
I’m an island boy, so I love my reggae and soca music.
I love the Italian culture – it’s a beautiful culture. I love the language, the Italian people, their music, their attitudes… I just love it! Sometimes I think I’m an Italian trapped in a Spanish woman’s body.
I’d love to do a film like ‘Chicago.’ Something musical because I’ve obviously come from that background.
I love the power of words – no music or special effects – and I want to demonstrate that power.
Music has an intrinsic value that touches Americans – they love their music, and want more.
I always loved music. You know, my parents said I started singing when I was 4, in the car.
I love what I do. I made my first record in ’57. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of making records and writing songs and singing and being in the music business.
Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries.
My father loved music. He loved Motown and R&B, and my mother loved Journey and Fleetwood Mac, so they were always listening to it and playing it.
I love plays that have musical moments. I’m not a big fan of musicals per se, but I love straight plays that have musical edges to them. I don’t know if I will ever be able to structure a musical, but ‘Finer Noble Gases’ is as close as I’ve gotten.
I love country music. I don’t ever feel restricted by the genre.
There’s a new hit rock group or singer every five minutes, but with country music, you have one hit and those people love you forever.
Jazz in the 1920s and ’30s was dance music, teenage music for parties, for being wild and young. There’s this punk feeling I really love. It was something so radical and different and new and not codified. People didn’t have a definition of what they were doing.
Cecile McLorin Salvant
I love Florida Georgia Line. I love ‘Round Here.’ So if a fan wants to listen to that, and if a fan that wasn’t listening to country music before is listening to ‘Cruise’ on Pandora, and after that a song by George Jones comes on, they may have never heard George Jones before. I think it’s a good thing for the genre.
I really love rap music. I grew up in the ’80s and ’90s with Public Enemy, N.W.A., LL Cool J – I’m a hip-hop encyclopedia. But I got kind of frustrated with the chauvinistic side of rap music, the one that makes it hard to write songs about love and relationships.
I got my love of jazz from my stepfather, who was a jazz musician.
I love Nashville. It’s such a great town, and I’m a huge country music fan. That’s what I listen to on the radio in the car.
When I was four, we had to choose a musical instrument to play at school, and I chose the cello. I played until I was 18, and although I found it nerve-racking to play solo, I loved playing in an orchestra. When I left school I didn’t carry on with it, which I regret.
I love music so much I love what I do. I work very hard at being the best musician I can be because I love it.
I love what I do and the music I make and the bands I’ve done, especially Fall Out Boy. I also love what I love, and I don’t care if other people like it.
When we were shooting in Shreveport, me and a couple of friends went down to Lafayette, because they had a big Zydeco music festival down there. We spent two days dancing to Zydeco music, eating fried alligator… It was one of the craziest festivals I’ve ever been to in my life, but I loved it.
We don’t live in a jazz world, unfortunately. I think if I had lived in a jazz world, I would have done OK. I’m not sure I would have done great. I’m a lover of jazz music, so I would have been happy, don’t get me wrong. I go to jazz concerts like the biggest jazz fan in world. The drag is that I don’t play jazz for a living.
One of the things that was a blessing for me is my parents were music lovers. Neither of my parents played an instrument, but they were avid record buyers. And I grew up at every age listening to all kinds of music.
I love all music.
When I started out, I wanted to be Billy Joel. The plan was to be a singer-songwriter of that ilk, and, then, I got waylaid – that’s probably an unfair way to say it – from being a rock star by the musical theatre stuff, which I love doing.
Jason Robert Brown
I’m primarily thought of as a rocker, and certainly ‘Frankenstein’ had a very dramatic power rock image. It was almost a precursor of heavy metal and fusion. But I also love jazz and classical and if there’s one common thread that runs through all my music, it is blues.
The greatest music is made for love, not for money.
It is, we wanted to make a record that reflected our love of Hard-Rock music and it is sort of Metal though we don’t really describe ourselves as Metal.
I did a lot of musical theatre when I was younger, so I would love to go back and do that again someday.
I love Frank Ocean. I think he’s so talented and his music is so great. So, I would love to do one of his songs like ‘Bad Religion’ or ‘Pink Matter.’
Engineering was the safe and sensible choice, but music was what I loved and wanted to do.
I went to my dad when I was 17 and said, ‘I want to be a country music star.’ Which every dad loves to hear. And he said, ‘I want you to go to college.’ So we had a discussion. And I’m pretty stubborn. I’m a lot like him. And he said, ‘If you go to college and graduate, I’ll pay your first six months of rent in Nashville.’ So he bribed me.
I play guitar, the ukulele and the piano. I grew up on a mountain in Tennessee, and we had ‘The Mountain Opry,’ where anyone could just get up on stage to perform. It was just about the soul and heart of music. My upbringing was less about being great and more about just doing what you love. It was always for joy.
I love gentle, gorgeous classical music such as Mozart.
Paul Hicks is the only guy The Beatles will allow to arrange, mix and engineer their music, so he did the Cirque du Soleil ‘Love’ show.
I’ve been all over the world. I love New York, I love Paris, San Francisco, so many places. But there’s no place like New Orleans. It’s got the best food. It’s got the best music. It’s got the best people. It’s got the most fun stuff to do.
Harry Connick, Jr.
I would still love to do more Handel. I think Handel was a fantastic composer. I did lots of Vivaldi, but it’s also important to do the music of Handel, one of the greatest composers of the 18th century.
Find something you really love doing and mix it with something you really care about. That’s why I’ve had such longevity as an artist. I really, really care about ending violence against women, and I really, really love playing music. It’s super enjoyable!
Having good health, being able to breathe and be happy, that’s one of the most beautiful gifts. On top of that, I have the gift to play music and make people happy through that. I’m just telling you from my heart, I’m so in love with life.
I love music so much; I’ve always played.
I really love Anglo music, and the language as well. Like, my kids, they – born here, Miami. So I just – a little bit more familiar with the language.
The closest I’ve come to knowing myself is in losing myself. That’s why I loved football before I loved music. I could lose myself in it.
I love everything from country to alternative to Blink-182 and ’90s music to Dave Matthews.
My students frequently ask what their next project should be. My advice: immerse yourself in the music you love and you will find what you want to do; you will discover your next project.
I love Christmas. I really do love Christmas. I love being with my family and I love snow. I love the music and the lights and all of it.
