"I can hear music for the first time ever, what should I listen to?" is the headline of a Reddit post that caught my attention today. A Reddit user named deafstoryteller writes, "I was born profoundly deaf and all music sounded like trash through my hearing aids. That is until a couple days ago when I put on a new pair of hearing aids for the first time in years."
The author -- whose real name is Austin Chapman -- is a recent college graduate and filmmaker who runs the website Art of the Story. He went on to say, "Being able to hear the music for the first time ever was unreal.... Obviously, I did the only sensible thing and went on a binge of music." So far, he writes, his favorites include Mozart's Lacrimosa and a remix of "A Bad Place" by producer Christian Bauhofer (who goes by the name Minnesota).
But he wants suggestions for what to listen to next. He writes, "Give me the name of the most beautiful songs to you."
So let's do this together and make Austin a playlist. Tell us what you think the most beautiful music is and why he should listen.
