listening to music
27 Aug 08
I tend to listen to a tons of different types of music, but metal seems to dominate anything else I listen to...Being a guitar player I understand how hard it can be to write and play these songs, so I have nothing but appreciation for some of these bands... Lately though, I've been listening to a lot of electronic stuff as well...Nine Inch Nails has always been a favorite of mine...I've been listening to them since I was 11 or 12, so it's just one of those bands (or one man band) that I can always listen to and really enjoy every second of it... A couple weeks ago, I got into Squarepusher...This guy is crazy...It's all electronic, but he plays the all the bass tracks, and man he's awesome...Some songs are insane and super fast, others really slow and ambient and there's a lot of jazz influenced songs as well...He's got a ton of albums out, all of them excellent for there own reasons... Finally, Travis Meeks would have to be my all time favorite song writer...His band is called Days of the New...It's a full band, its kind of rocky I guess...It's a bit older (late 90s) so I guess it could be classified as alternative rock to an extent...I find the song structures to be more than brilliant, and the lyrics extremely inspiring... -Mike

Well let's see jhellie, I like alot af different artists and different kinds of music and I will surprise you with some of my choices, especially for someone in my age bracket. I like rap/r&b/soul as my favorite. Then I also like old rock music from the 70-90's. I like Rhianna, NeYo (am waiting for his new joint to come out!), Alicia Keyes, Ashanti, Lil Wayne, 50cent, tlc, salt & peppa, destiny's child, Stevie Wonder, Santana. I really could just keep going. As you can see I have a very diversified collection of music and it gets even stranger as I go on. My bf and I watch BET all the time so I know all the newest joints as they come out and we both love Lil Wayne!
