On the Street

Saturday was the Music on Main event in Sheffield. What is your favorite kind of music? Why is music important?

“I enjoy rock and roll like AC/DC. Music taps into ones soul and helps you remember times in your life that were really good, and music can make you smile.” — Michelle Albrecht, Princeton

“I listen to a lot of different kinds of music! I listen to Christian, country and pop a lot and of course kids’ songs! I believe music really can change your mood! It really helps keep me upbeat and happy throughout my day with little ones!” — Savannah Berlin, Princeton

“I like all types of music depending on the mood I am in. Music is important because it helps you escape everyday life and puts a smile on your face.” — Pete Mangold, Princeton

“I enjoy all kinds of music except hip hop and rap. Music and lyrics bring one of the simplest forms of pleasure to us daily. Music makes everyone happy.” — Doug Robbins, Princeton

“My favorite kind of music is the blues. It’s important because music keeps the spirits up, and no matter how depressed you feel, if you listen to some music you feel lighter than air.” — Pete Hamilton, DePue

“I like ‘80’s rock. Music is a good source of entertainment.” — Gary Wetsel, Princeton
