When it comes to music, I think all genres are influential and inspiring to me. 

I think pop music and rap are two popular genres. Which genre is most influential to you, @Sakavelli?

@Sakavelli I agree with @AlyssaPandora that "ALL" genre has an influential impact on the music world and everyday life...I will give you two examples of what I mean..."The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is a 1976 hit song written, composed, and performed by the Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot to memorialize the sinking of the bulk carrier SS Edmund Fitzgerald along with its 29 crew members in Lake Superior on November 10, 1975. Lightfoot considered this song to be his finest work. That genre is folk-rock, soft-rock, progressive-rock...

The other song has been a hit song as well as a hit movie "Coal Miner's Daughter" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Loretta Lynn. Considered Lynn's signature song, it was originally released as a single in 1970 and became a number-one hit on the Billboard Country chart. It was later released on an album of the same name. Lynn, who was born in 1932 and experienced the Great Depression as a child, also describes her childhood and the circumstances she was raised in during those years. "Coal Miner's Daughter" would receive positive reviews from journalists and music critics alike following its release. It would become one of Lynn's signature recordings in her career. It would also be considered one of music's most significant recordings, according to polls from Time and the Recording Industry of America. The song recounts the day-to-day life of her childhood growing up in rural poverty in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky In the lyrics, Lynn describes herself as the daughter of a coal-mining father. She recounted how her father also worked as a farmer growing corn. Along with her father, Lynn also wrote about her mother and how she worked tirelessly on household duties such as cleaning and washing. Subsequent verses recall Lynn's other childhood experiences and hardships, such as her mother reading the Bible by a coal-oil light or having bloody fingers from constantly doing the laundry using a washboard. Decades later, Lynn revealed that the song only hinted at other childhood experiences. "The song doesnโ€™t tell half of it. If I told the whole story nobody would believe it now anyway. Even pop artists have taken Mrs. Lynn's song and put a twist of their own on it most notably Sheryl Crowe. 

Have a blessed day...Take care and GOD bless...
