QUESTIONS AS ANSWERS: TOPIC MUSIC
1. What music do you like?
I love every type of music that is pleasing to the ear. Actually, it can be light music, powerful ballads and the one with fast rhythm, you name it. Listening to music is like the thing I do every day, which always puts me in a good mood.
2. What music do you dislike?
Well, perhaps rock and roll is the one that I don’t like so much. Don’t get me wrong! I’m not saying it’s not good. The point is, I just lack the ability to appreciate it. And to be honest with you, feeling the strong beat after work even sets my nerves on edge.
3. Do you often listen to one type of music?
No, I’d like different kinds of music after work, actually. If I’m doing the aerobic exercise, I definitely choose the pop music with fast tempo. On the other hand, before I go bed, I’m gonna listen to some soothing music.
4. What music do your friends like? Do you enjoy the same type of music?
I really have a thing for pop music and the same goes for most of my friends. By the way, some of them are crazy about rap music, which I had no special feelings about. Things changed after I had watched the live performance with my friends. It was awesome and I was totally taken by that.
5. What’s the most popular type of music where you live?
Well, nowadays the music that wins people’s heart is more or less the same in different regions because of the Internet and the hit TV shows you know. The music online or the soundtrack itself is just like the brainworm. Then many people can hum quietly to themselves.
6. Which singer or musician would you like to see in person?
l look forward to seeing Dan Truong in the future coz I’ve been a big fan of him since his debut. He is really charismatic, and down-to-earth in the interview. I’m gonna be psyched to meet him in person.
