So this is random, but I figured it was a good time to give a peek into my weird taste in music.
There are 3 bands/artists that dominate my iTunes list:
- The Beatles - There's really no explanation needed here. Even if you don't like the Beatles (which is clearly wrong, and you must have some kind of defect that keeps you from enjoying the better things in life), you have to admit that they were pretty iconic. I grew up listening to the Beatles with my parents, and now I have nearly every Beatles song recorded in my possession.
- No Doubt - This is actually by accident, sort of. Don't get me wrong - I love No Doubt. I grew up on Gwen and the gang! Tragic Kingdom was actually one of the first CDs I owned (the very first being The Score by The Fugees). But the only reason I have as many No Doubt songs on my computer as I do is because we went to see them play at Summerfest in 2009. After we bought our tickets, we got access to download every single No Doubt song recorded - for free. How could I pass that up?
- The Glee Cast - Yes, I am a full out Gleek. Love, love, LOVE everything about Glee! The show, the music, the actors... Everything about it makes me happy in my heart (to borrow a phrase from my bestie). As such, I own a plethora of Glee songs!
So, that's probably not too weird, I guess. Taking a look around my "25 Most Played" songs, Glee easily has the majority of the list on lock-down. However, also on that list are Chris Brown, Queen, Buckcherry, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, 3OH!3, Incubus, Badfinger and Murray Head.
If that's not eclectic enough for you, you should see the list of bands I've seen live. It goes all over the board, from Peter, Paul & Mary (whom I actually saw in concert twice) to Pat Benetar, Sugarcult to Sugarland, and 311 to 3OH!3. Sadly, I'm getting to the point in life where I'm really not up for the screaming and insanity that many concerts bring (we've left a few concerts early), so the number of shows I'm attending has dropped significantly in the past year or two (though, you wouldn't know it by looking at the past few weeks - sheesh!).
Anywhoozles, there's really no point to this post, but why not? (Ah! Ah! I said it! That's the title!) I leave you with the following random songs that you should probably listen to, just for fun. Or not. Your call.
"Hold On Tight" - Electric Light Orchestra
"Hard To Believe" - VOTA
"We Belong" - Pat Benetar
"Time Of The Season" - The Zombies"Take A Chance On Me" - ABBA
