Music does have that special place in my dusty life,
always has had,
from LP over EP to CD and CD-single/EP
ending up with magazine special editions,
and nowadays iTunes (on Mac , which you should prefer as well).
Maybe music has, even more than Nietzsche’s ‘Jenseits von Gut und Böse’ (read in 1997), determined my life. The SAVING of my life however was reserved for my lovely wife (check this out).
