Here is the sample for “describe a song or a piece of music you like” topic

I have always been a massive fan of music. I love listening to music because good music helps me recharge my battery as well as uplift my spirit after a long day overloaded with work and study. I listen to many different kinds of music, from Rock to Jazz, depending on where I am, who I’m with, and how I feel at the time. Today I’m going to tell you about one of my favourite songs, titled ‘Hello’.

The genre is pop, as characterized by its upbeat music and simple, down-to-earth lyrics. It’s actually a single that just went platinum this week. The song is viral at the moment, I mean, it’s the talk of the town. It’s been topping the charts for weeks and has got millions of streams on music sites.

The person who performs the song is Adele, an internationally acclaimed artist, hailing from the UK. She’s made a killing with her albums, but she’s maintained a somewhat low-profile lifestyle. I am a huge fan of her. I have an impressive collection of her records that I really treasure. Maybe I would have the fortune to attend one of her concerts.

I first listened to the song last week. It was when I was in the middle of finals. I was up to the ears in revision and it was incredibly nerve-racking time, so I needed something to let my hair down. That’s when I went to YouTube to watch some music videos. The minute I heard Adele’s voice, I was hooked and totally blown away. I’ve put the song on repeat ever since.

I am keen on the song for a number of reasons. First, it was her voice that struck me, which is incredibly soothing, and has a nice warm quality to it. The lyrics is also dope. It talks about emotions after two people part ways in a relationship and I can definitely relate to that.
