Remember the good old days when we would write ‘songs’ on our keyboards? All you had to do was push a few buttons and you had a whole orchestra playing away, a crappy and tiny little orchestra, but an orchestra none the less. If you’ve ever watched Bob’s Burgers, then the character Gene is the perfect description for this. To us, our songs sounded like the music of the Gods, to our friends and family, they were pretty dull and annoying. After the age of 8, most of us moved on from creating the best music the world has ever seen, ever, and we discovered Lego. That was a good year. Others carried this desire on and became great artists, like RJD2 and Fatboy Slim, and some others discovered Depeche Mode, stayed indoors shrouded in darkness and wrote poetry.
