The influence of pop culture

The American popular culture has most influence my life through music. Music can be described as something that defines us our helps us express ourselves. I think that is a pretty accurate statement. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, especially with music genres. For me personally, I can listen to all kinds of music. I like everything from country to rap. Maybe one thing I would not enjoy would be operah. It just so happens though, I have one particular band that comes to mind when I try to think of what influences me best.
A music artist that I choose to be my influence is Coldplay. This is a band that I can recall listening to since they first came out. I love the kind of music they make, their lyrics are really meaningful and make you think. They are not techniquely considered a christian band, but their music is great because it gives an impressionistic value from the lyrics itself. Music itself has a big influence on me and my day because my mood can be easily affected upon it. When I am not doing so good, the simplest thing to help is to turn their CD on in the car. I would say that music can affect and influence us all in that way, as long as we have a good favorite band in mind to listen to.
