Book Tag Tuesday | The Music Tag

Thanks so much to Jacquie over @ Rattle the Stars for tagging me in this incredibly fun post! Please be sure to check out her lovely blog. She’s got some great content and she uses hearts instead of stars to grade books! How cute is that?!

Let’s jump right into it, shall we?


The Questions

Name your top 3 favorite bands.

My god, what a question.

200

Okay, today I’m going to pick Paramore, Muse, and Nico Vega. I don’t really have a favorite band, just dozens I really really really like. But I suppose these three are usually in my top ten so….

What is the last song you listened to?

Well, just a few minutes ago I was showering with my music on and I had no control over the playlist. The last song I technically listened to before getting dressed was “Promise” by Romeo Santos ft. Usher. Always gotta have that bachata ready.

2001

What was the first concert you went to? 

The first concert I had the pleasure of going to was the Monster Tour featuring Paramore and Fallout Boy (after they had returned from Patrick Stump’s failed attempt to strike it out on his own). Oh god I remember that night clearly. It was possibly one of the best nights of my life.

If you could spend a day with your favorite singer who would it be? 

I wouldn’t really want to spend the day with my favorite singer (I don’t really have one, tbh), as I can hardly spend the day with my favorite person, (which would be my brig bro). But I’d like to go on a short coffee date with Alessia Cara. We seem to have the same opinion when it comes to college parties.

Are there any songs that you can’t stand hearing?

If I could burn a song to the ground, it would be “Closer” by The Chainsmokers. That song gives me migraines.

If you could have a soundtrack to your life what would it be?

Oooh good question. I’d have to say “Ain’t It Fun,” by Paramore.

2002

The more I delve into the world of adulting, the more I learn it’s not as cool as I thought it would be when I was a child.

Can you sing? 

I’d like to think so, but I’m not trying out for The Voice anytime soon.

Your favorite cheesy song? 

2003

Jump On It” by The Sugar Hill Gang. It’s not my favorite cheesy song, but it’s the first song that comes to mind. And I have fun doing the dance. Lots of fun.

What songs do you listen to when you are feeling down? 

I have the bad habit of listening to sad songs while I’m down, so I just continue to spiral down into the depths of despair. The songs I usually go running to are “Smile” by Mikky Ekko, “If I Get High” by Nothing But Thieves, “Hurt” by Christina Aguilera, “For My Help” by Hayden Calnin, “Fix You” by Coldplay and basically anything by Adele or Evanescence.

But if I try really hard to bring myself out of a funk, I usually try some happier songs like Andra Day’s “Rise Up” and  Nat King Cole’s “Smile.”

First L.P./CD/MP3 you bought? 

The first CD I bought was Evanescence’s first album, Fallen. I was going through a phase.

Do you like musicals? If so, which is your favorite?

Yes! I do like musicals, even though I haven’t been to many in person. (I think the only ones I’ve seen in person were The Sound of Music, Evita, and Oklahoma). But one of my favorites is definitely Phantom of the Opera. But I also love the music from Evita and Wicked.

Favorite musical instrument

I’d say it’s a toss up between the piano or the violin. Can’t play either, but I love the sounds of both.

If you could see anyone in concert who would it be? 

I’d sell half my soul (gotta keep the other half clean at least) to see either Bruno Mars or Adele in concert. One I know I’d have fun dancing and partially singing along, the other I’d know all the words to.

2004

If you wrote a song what would it be called?

Plot twist. I would NEVER try to write a song. I just don’t have the skills. Or patience.


Quick Fire Round:

Rock or pop? Eh, probably rock. Although, sometimes I’m in the right mood for pop.

Sing in the shower or on stage? Definitely in the shower. I’m afraid of the spotlight. I get the shakes.

Musical or concert? Probably concert. But if I’m feeling classy, musical.

Guitar or drums? Drums. Love the sound of ’em and the rhythms they can make.

Ear phones or speaker? I’m practically attached to my ear phones (survival 101 of living in LA). I love having my speaker going when I’m at home, though, when I’m all nice and cozy and not having to fend for my personal space and sanity.

Music while you work or quiet? Though I like to have some music in the background, I usually become so focused on my assignment that I end up working without music on.

One Direction or Justin Bieber? I’ll admit it. One Direction ain’t half bad. At least all of them can sing, unlike some boy bands I know…(*cough*NSYNC*cough*).

Sing or dance? Dance. I like to sing, but I feel better when I’m dancin’

Instrumental or lyrics? Depends on my mood. I love instrumental when I’m relaxing at home and I love lyrics for just about any other time.

Prince or Michael Jackson? This is impossible. I can’t do it. There’s no way I can choose. Nope.

  1. Not trying out for The Voice but how about American Idol? Hehe do you really walk around with earphones on all the time? I feel like I have to be alert of my surroundings to keep anything in my ears! Thanks for the tag! (Nsync is 😂, well those guys must not mind to look nice and be the background singer I guess)

    1. Oh American Idol, how you have fallen lol. But nope. I will avoid all singing competitions even if my life depended on it. And yes, I do. Well, for most of the time. It’s to ward off unwanted attention 😄 It usually doesn’t work, but I keep trying LOL. I try not to wear them when I’m walking around at night, though. Survival 102 of surviving in LA haha. And of course! Hope you enjoy doing it as much as I did 😀

  2. I also love Paramore! Bruno Mars and Adele would be great to see live, I think they’re fun and definitely can sing live. Not a lot of artist are good singing live. I love the piano and violin too, I can’t play any instruments to save my life though. I can sing but I can’t play lol. Thanks for tagging me!

    1. It’s sad that not many artists are just as good live (*cough*Coldplay*cough*), but at least there are those gems out there that know how to perform and sound just like their album! 😀 And of course! I hope you enjoy doing it, should you choose to do so ❤

  3. Awesome post! 🙂 I can’t really focus much with music on, or anything playing in the background really. Also, lively songs are great but am I the only one who loves to listen to really sad songs too when I’m feeling happy? Hahaha

    1. Thank you! And you’re not the only one LOL. I do that ALL THE TIME. I think I can appreciate the sad song a bit more when I’m happy because I’m not in such a terrible mood where I don’t really notice the words, just the melody. But when I’m happy, I take it all in haha

  4. I’ll admit, I tend to huddle in the corner of my preferred musical genres and don’t venture out to try new things. A lot of the musicians and songs you mentioned, I haven’t heard of–but I’m going to hunt them all down and give them a listen. Thanks for expanding my musical horizons! =D

    “I’m afraid of the spotlight. I get the shakes.”

    YEP.

    Thanks for the tag! This looks fun. =)

    (P.S. If this comment posts twice, I’m so sorry. None of the comments I’ve been leaving on people’s blogs today seem to actually be posting or awaiting moderation, and I don’t know what’s going on. *Shakes a fist.*)

    1. Hey, Liam! I finally checked my spam folder, and sure enough, there you were! I’m sorry WordPress is doing that to you. It’s so weird :/ But yes, I highly encourage you checking out some of those songs. They’re among my favorites 😀 And of course! I hope you enjoy the tag. Your blog is AMAZING by the way. So sleek and clean and organized LOL. Love your content, too!

      1. Aw, thank you for checking! ❤

        I've just settled down to start listening, and I can already confirm: you have great taste. Thanks again for all the recs!
