“Without music, life would be a mistake”
A day doesn’t go by without music being played at my desk, in my car, at the gym and even in the shower, it’s a large part of who I am as a person. I have wondered if you can tell the type of music a person listens to by looking at them, if so what would people think I listen to? Country? Pop? Rock? Hip Hop? Well, it would be ALL of those! I believe I have a very eclectic taste in music, I can go from listening to Brad Paisley to Ludacris, a little Michael Buble, Jay-Z and back to James Morrison… I’d say I enjoy everything other than Polka. Sorry, can’t say that does anything for meHere’s a little of what I’m listening to right now and a few of my all time favorites….
1. Amos Lee
Until last month I had no idea who Amos Lee was and now I can’t stop listening to him, my dad bought his newest CD Mission Bell and after listening to a few of the songs I had to buy his self titled CD. This has to be one of my favorites from the album, gives me goosebumps. Love his voice.
2. Lupe Fiasco
A certain 15 year old and I have been playing this song every day for the last few weeks, it’s on MTV Jams daily and on my work out music… his lyrics are not what you would assume from a “rap” artist. His new CD comes out March 8th and I’m really looking forward to it, so much good music!
Junior year of high school, one of my first concerts sans the parentals… incredible. Since then I have seen O.A.R. 10 or 11 times, oh my I can’t remember! It’s usually at least once a year but last year their tour didn’t bring them close to Minnesota.. I’ve been going through withdrawal. According to a tweet I received from Richard On, they are hoping to include us on their 2011 tour. YESSS!!!! I will not miss it, that’s a promise!If you haven’t seen them, come with me… you will not regret it!!
4. Lady Antebellum
Their first album was amazing, I wasn’t sure their second could top it.. but it most definitely did. After watching the Grammy’s the other weekend, it just reaffirmed how talented they are. It was one of my favorite performances of the night! My most recent obsession from their CD is Hello World.. love love love.
5. Girl Talk
I’m always looking for new music to edit and workout to, so what did I do… oh I posted it on facebook that I was looking for new music. Miss Kellee suggested Girl Talk, I had one of his other albums on my computer but honestly never listened to it. So when she said that it rocked and was FREE, I jumped all over it. This cd has to be one of the BEST to work out to, and for those of us with Song ADD it’s PERFECT. He’s a mash-up genius! My brain doesn’t work like that, combining songs to make it flow perfectly.. no way Jose! If you have Song ADD like me, DJ Earworm is another great mash-up man!
