I was feeling a bit melancholy and wondering if anyone happens to be in the same musical situation as me...
A little background: I am a male teenager in high school. I'm pretty sure I'm part of the popular crowd - everyone in the school knows my name and everyone loves me. I have a flourishing social life, and plenty of friends. I am a big part of my school's Drama Club - I've held 1 walk-on role when I started, 2 supporting roles later, and recently I've been the star with 3 lead roles. I like to brag about this since I worked so hard to achieve it all, haha!
But I digress...getting to the point now!
Music is a big part of my life and I share it with all my friends! We love Pop music, and listen to it together all the time. I'm known for being able to rap every word to every Nicki Minaj song ever! My TRUE love in music however, is Trance music. I have a gigantic collection of mainstream Trance, underground Trance, and countless Trance sub-genres (also some rare stuff which I am quite proud of, haha). I started liking Trance when I accidentally found the song "Let It Rain" by 4 Strings on YouTube, and I never looked back since that day!
Sadly, this part of my music collection is only visited when I am alone. I've tried getting friends into it countless times - playing catchy Trance songs at parties, sharing them with close friends with open minds, and posting them on Facebook...but there has been absolutely no feedback. My friends don't comment much on it, and when I force an opinion out of them they either say it's "cool" and then never listen to it again, or they say it's not exactly their taste. In the years I've been a Trance fan, I have never met a single other person who loves it like I do. My only friends who share this taste in music are internet friends who I ahve never met in person. Although I've exposed my real-life friends to it, Trance music doesn't seem to touch any of them the way it does me...reaching to the depths of my soul and healing any negative feelings while bringing me into beautiful mental states I've never experienced before...all without the use of any drugs!
So what I want to know is if anyone else here is in the same situation as me, where none of your friends seem to appreciate Trance music the way you do. Or have you been able to find someone else who does? (In which case, please console me!
