List 14 - music

This weeks listmania topic is music – wide open for you – favourite songs, albums, artists,video clips,  stories about your own music playing, concerts – anything goes.

I've always enjoyed music - but have never really been one to have favourite bands. I tend to listen to whatever the major radio stations are playing - so basically what's popular at the moment. I don't tend to purchase CDs/itunes music as I prefer a mix of artists rather than music from just 1 person. But I remember my first CD purchase - Toni Pearen - In your room in 1992. I wrote about this in a previous list!  And I've just remembered I went through a Tiffany stage. My Grandpa made a tape for me! It was awesome!!




As a kid I played the saxophone and piano. I was in concert band for the sax right through high school. The problem with the sax was it was great in the band, but practising on my own sounded a bit boring! I've still got my alto sax somewhere (at my parents I think).  The piano I stopped earlier - but did do some exams! But boy those scales were BORING!

I was going through old CDs the other day trying to find something to load into my iTunes account. I found Mika...love love Mika! I've loaded it up to my phone and quite often run to Mika! I also found Dido - Dido was my music of choice to listen to whilst studying in year 12. Nice relaxing, thinking music!

I'm really loving Hey Ho from the Lumineers at the moment and anything Bruno Mars!




And thinking about music got me thinking about the music concert's I've been to. Those that I can remember are:
  • Backstreet Boys
  • Bryan Adams
  • Shannon Noll
  • Michael Buble
  • Jimmy Barnes
  • Robbie Williams
  • Some concert that had a few bands from the 80s but I can't remember the name
  • Taylor Swift

Do you have any favourite music?

Linking up with Deb at Listmania.

  1. Love Dido too. (Though reading you were in high school then made me feel really old!) And scales on the piano, a real turn off aren't they!

    1. Dido is so relaxing and just provides that background noise which helped me with studying.

  2. I don't think I ever made it past the scales part of piano. My Nana tried to teach me and although it was her profession she pronounced me unteachable! Love that Lumineers song too.
