State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

Staff Pick – Music I'm Thankful For: Frank Ocean

My friend actually introduced me to his music a long time ago, and actually don’t think I liked it at first. Then as I kept listening to him I became obsessed. It’s the kind of music that just grows on you, and once you’re attached you can’t stop. His music is perfect for when you’re by yourself doing homework, studying, or even just hanging out with a friend. It puts you in the mood of just relaxing, while at the same time tells you a deep message through his songs.

I also admire him for coming out and telling everyone about his sexuality then writing songs about the man he loves. His songs are so touching and they have such a calm vibe to it. My personal favorite is his song “Thinkin Bout You” and I absolutely love the line, “We’ll go down this road till it turns from color to black and white.” Therefore I am very thankful for his music and how it has made me appreciate more in life.
