Sooo it’s actually week 8 of Arman’s Spill It Sundays series, but I forgot last week what with moving back to school and all so I will forever be a week behind. Either way, big congrats to the hot tamale for his link-up catching on so wonderfully in just two months and thanks for hosting us!
This week you get to hear all about music! Music is something that has always been a part of my life, and while I went through many phases, I’ve always been a rock/alt rock/pop rock/Brit rock kind of girl at heart. That said – I love a good top forty song every now and again (you can’t deny that Timber is just such a catchy song, amiright?).
I listen to music when I drive, in my down time, when I workout, when I’m stressed – any time. I think music is amazing for many reasons but most importantly because there is literally a song for every emotion and event. I love when I find artists that I can really connect with but who can also jam and make me so obsessed with their music that I listen to it on repeat for days.
What is your all-time favorite musical artist/band?
The Kooks, hands down. I would see their show again in a heartbeat. Their next album is coming out soon, and I could not be more excited.
What is your favorite genre of music?
I kind of said this above, but above all, I really dig Brit rock or alt rock. Currently I can’t stop playing the Arctic Monkeys. Their latest album is in.cred.i.ble.
As other examples go, I love The Neighbourhood, The Fratellis, Two Door Cinema Club and Imagine Dragons.
But on the other hand, I adore Justin Timberlake and things like that. Also, recently I’ve been into Lorde. I don’t like “Royals,” but if the first song I’d heard from her had been “Tennis Court,” it would have been love at first listen. Her video is super weird though.
Which genre of music could you skip over on the radio?
Country. Not a big fan at all. PS… Taylor Swift, you are NOT country anymore so stop going to the CMAs and winning.
Which musician does not deserve that title?
I’m gonna have to say Soulja Boy.
Most embarrassing musical admissions/tastes?
I was just talking to my roomie yesterday about how I went through an alternative phase in high school. I basically started the skinny jeans trend, nbd. My best friend at the time used to cut my hair for me, we both had similar styles. She would use razors on our hair and make the top layers suuuuuper short and push it up and tease it. Can’t forget the raccoon eye makeup.
All of this is to explain the persona that accompanied my love for Panic! At The Disco, All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, etc. Honestly, I still know all the words to all of their songs and still listen for fun sometimes. Aka as I write this. Plus, they’re majorly upbeat songs to run to.
On a different note, I can also sing the entire Wicked soundtrack like it’s nobody’s biz.
Favorite song of all time?
Favorite has to be “Over My Head (Cable Car)” by The Fray. They will always have a place in my heart. The Fray was my first real concert alone. Their frontman is out of this world talented. I tear up every time I hear this song. I’m not sure why, but I think it has something to do with the chords and the personal meaning to me.
Favorite joke song miiiiiight be Summer Girls. Hell yeah.
Okay I absolutely loved writing this Spill It Sundays. Arman, we might have to have another music edition in a few months ;).
