How many times have you come to a band or song super late on? Something/one that's been around for decades, but for whatever reason they never made their way into your ears.
Last weekend @kerraig UK posted an Instagram message about seeing The Who and Love Reign O'er Me (which is an absolute belter may I add) being one of his favourite songs. Of the other favourites he mentioned, one was "I wish you were here". At the time the only song I knew with that title was an Incubus song, but I was quickly corrected on it being Pink Floyd.
I loaded it up and recognised it immediately. It's a great song that I knew of but didnt know the artist (see also Baby O'Riley which came up on a playlist). After that Kerraig and I were chatting about Pink Floyd and I was given some songs to listen to. I listened to them as well as Dark Side of the Moon and was blown away.
I know to most people this is a bit of a "well duh" moment but for whatever reason, even though my dad was into his rock music Pink Floyd was never played and I'd never really bothered with them when I got older and was discovering my own tastes.
I've been hammering them all this last week as well as Pink Floyd radio on spotify. That has also thrown up some great song from bands I'd never really considered before too. Its how I discovered the track Baby O'Riley was by The Who, a song I'd heard countless times in other media but didnt know the name or artist.
Even though the Spotify radio has been a good listen, finally discovering Pink Floyd this week has been so amazing and all I can think is what took me so long? I just cant explain the reason for not even trying them when I enjoy other big bands from that era (Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin etc).
Either way, I'm happy to have finally "discovered" them, even if I'm ridiculously late to the party. Time is currently my favourite song of theres so far.
So I was wondering has this ever happened to anyone else? Have you ever got into your 30s like me and certain songs or artist have just skipped you by until one day where it changed and you finally discovered them.
