Have you noticed that music is like a magic potion? If you were a teenager in the 80s or 90s, you surely know how it was to turn on the radio, waiting for your favorite song to record it on a tape.
If you are younger, you’re lucky to have all the songs you like available in just a few clicks on Spotify. Anyway, you know what passion for music is.
There are a lot of great songs in music history and some of them are still known nowadays. Have you have ever wondered why “We are the champions” by Queen is still played in every single competition?
Great songs are not just… songs. They’re something to remember. They’re legend!

There’s always a great writer behind a great song
Famous songs wouldn’t be what they are if they had not been created by great songwriters. The ability of putting words and music together is something unique and this is the reason why songs last forever on your mind.
Among all the great songwriters we can obviously mention John Lennon and Bob Dylan, but not only. Even more recent artists such as Eminem or Billie Joe Armstrong wrote memorable tracks.
But why do we love music so much? Here are 3 simple reasons:
1) Music brings back memories
Do you remember that time…? Music is a perfect time machine that takes us to the most beautiful moments of our past.
Your first kiss, a trip you made, a particular day… It takes just a song to bring those moments back to you.
2) Music is a fantastic soundtrack of our lives
Great songs not only involve your past but also your present. Listening to music throughout the day makes our time run fast when we’re doing something boring and makes pleasant activities even more enjoyable.
3) Music fights stress
Last but no least, listening to music is a good idea when you’re feeling nervous or anxious, because it relaxes and gives us the right energy to face life troubles.
Having said that, listening to music is good but making it is even better! So, why don’t you come to visit us at our studio?
