Artists I Know You’ll Love

Let’s talk about music. We all have different tastes. Only the other day I posted in the Facebook group for my freshman class what kind of music everyone likes and no two people had the same answers. We are all attracted to different genres and voices and lyrics. And so I thought today I’d share with you some music that I love that I think you might like too.

I Listen to a Lot of British Artists: A Musical Compositon

Adele

If you don’t love Adele, I don’t want to breathe the same air as you. She has more soul than I thought was possible and her music is beautiful.

Andy Grammar

This man just makes the best music. My friend Kelsi and I will play his station on Slacker whenever we go on long drives. Andy makes catchy music that has a great message.

The Beatles

Need I say anything? It’s the Beatles.

My Road Trip Playlist

This month is my big month of travel. Last week I went to Eugene for freshman orientation, this week I go to the coast with my best friend Katy, and the week after that I go to Portland for a  Bruno Mars concert! So, all in all, I’m going to be on the road a lot this month. And car rides are so boring without appropriate music, so I have my own Road Trip Playlist on my phone that provides several hours of fantastic car music. And I thought I’d share it with you.

Accidentally in Love – Counting Crows

All About You – McFly

Animal – Neon Trees

Anything Could Happen – Ellie Goulding

Army of Two – Olly Murs

Some Musical Questions

I found this questionnaire on Bomb in a Birdcage. Katie’s questionnaire is quite a bit different than mine. So, let’s start!

Pick 10 artists you love before answering the questions

  1. McFLY
  2. One Night Only
  3. Ellie Goulding
  4. Adele
  5. Elvis Costello
  6. Florence + the Machine
  7. Michael Buble
  8. Mika
  9. Two Door Cinema Club
  10. Scouting for Girls

What was the first song you ever heard by 6?

The Dog Days Are Over. I’m not a huge mainstream music person, so I discovered this song way after everyone else. But when I hear a song that I just click with, like this, it becomes my job for the next few hours to search the artist and find all the other songs I like.

What is your favorite song of 8?

Good Gone Girl. I find that this song is almost about me. I’m an innocent person who was stuck in this world with drugs and sex trafficking and theft and it seems that Mika is asking me how I got there. This song is absolutely fantastic.

What kind of an impact has 1 left on your life?

McFLY has been my favorite band since I was in 8th grade. That’s three years. They sort of helped me grow up in a way. They’ve gone through all these difficult parts of growing up and that has to impact you in some way, right?

What are your favorite lyrics of 5?

“Forget your fancy manners, forget your English grammar, because you don’t really give a damn about this year’s girl.”

Elvis Costello “This Year’s Girl”

How many times have you seen 4 live?

I have not seen her live yet. But I would love to. That would be a really fantastic show I believe.

What is your favorite song by 7?

Hollywood. Whenever that song comes on the radio I start dancing. I am a danger to drivers everywhere.

Is there a song by 3 that makes you sad?

Yes. The Writer makes me sad because it reminds me of fighting with people who I have differences with.

What is your favorite song by 9?

Something Good Can Work. I ran across this band on iTunes when they had this song for free. This song just makes me feel that, in my darkest moments, everything really is going to work out fine.

How did you get into 3?

Her boyfriend is Greg James, who I adore, and I listen to him on BBC Radio 1 every morning. Well, I Wikipedia-ed him and found out they were dating and searched her on iTunes. And I’ve loved her ever since.

What is your favorite song by 4?

Rolling in the Deep. No question.

How many times have you seen 2 live?

Zero. They’ve only toured in America once and it was on the other side of the country. But I will see them live. It’s on my bucket list.

What is a good memory concerning 10?

One of their songs was in a movie I loved and I was watching it one day and my brother came in the room, san the song, and then left. If you know my brother then you’d understand why it was so great.

Is there a song by 8 that makes you sad?

Happy Ending. It just reminds me that eventually we will all die. And that is kind of sad.

What is your favorite song by 1?

Star Girl. I have hooked so many people to this song. I love it because I love the story behind it, I love the catchy upbeat tune, and I love that it reminds me that one day there will be someone who will be singing this to me.

And that’s the questionnaire. Thanks for reading! You have all been great! And feel free to ask other questions (even non-music related) to me. I love doing questionnaires.

Until next time!
