Music. August 24, 2008

I don’t remember a time where music wasn’t a part of my life. I grew up listening to oldies with my dad, even dancing in the living room to his vinyl records. As a child I was attached at the hip to my Walkman, constantly listening to music and (usually) singing at the top of my lungs. Not much has changed! I do miss playing instruments like I used to and singing in choir (church choir just doesn’t cut it!). I now get my fixes by attending way too many concerts and closely following a couple of bands. What music can’t I live without, you ask? Let’s see…

  • Hanson. Always number one.
  • Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers.
  • Trevor Jackson.
  • Locksley.
  • Matchbox Twenty.
  • MercyMe.
  • Selah.
  • Derek Webb.
  • Copeland.
  • Aireline.
  • Anberlin.

I enjoy quite a few oldies:

  • James Taylor.
  • Cat Stevens.
  • The Carpenters.
  • The Guess Who.
  • America.
  • The Doobie Brothers.
  • Led Zeppelin.
  • The Eagles.
  • Carole King.
  • Blood, Sweat, & Tears.
  • 2nd Chapter of Acts.
  • Elton John.
  • Billy Joel.

Lately I’ve been getting in to a lot of new music. For a long time I was kind of stuck in the Hanson + oldies rut, but I’m really branching out. I find myself actually enjoying some of the stuff my husband listens to, which is way more hard rock than I normally like. I keep falling in love with opening acts, and going to so many shows is giving me plenty of exposure. Yay, new music! Boo, not enough money to buy every album!
