Over the last week or so people who quickly signed up for the free Apple Music trial period have started to take turns saying why they are or are not sticking with the service. I wanted to throw my hat in the ring so to speak...
For years I've been eyeing Apple Music in secret. The idea of this service was just too much for me to bare. I wasn't sure what I was going to do if and when we ever had the chance to be together. Eventually I put it in the back of my mind and tried other services. They just weren't for me. We just didn’t click. The chemistry wasn’t right.
Then it happened. Apple Music arrived and I instantly asked if we could go steady. In hindsight, perhaps it was a bit too fast.
Our first date didn't go as planned. It wasn't all roses and candies. My romance with Apple Music was a bit of a grower. After losing or mangling much of my purchased and/or ripped music I wasn't sure we'd ever get to a second date. But after some help from Apple Support and friends, things sorted themselves out. We got an elusive do-over. Thankfully, things were magical from then on. Apple Music just hit all the right notes, swept me off my feet, and made my heart sing.
Today we're very happy together. Things like Siri integration and having my iTunes purchases and all the streaming tracks mixed with my ripped music, well, is very special to me. The curated playlists are a great way to find interesting music, and Beats 1 has proven to be a part of Apple Music I didn’t think I’d like, but very often do.
Early on I thought I may have to leave the inexperienced Apple Music for a more experienced service, especially after the first date from hell we had…you know, someone who knew their way around a streaming catalog. I stuck it out though, we worked together, and I couldn't be happier.
Apple Music just gets me. Apple Music, you complete me.
