Music ✨

So, I’m trying to find new artists to listen to, because at the moment my playlist consists mainly of movie soundtracks. :laughing:

I’m really curious- what’s your favourite genre, and who’s your favourite artist?

basically anything before the 2000s is my favourite but I really do love such a range - my Spotify playlist has songs from 1930-2021 and pretty much all genres. I would be more than happy to share my playlists with you if you are interested (Private message me if you are) - I have built up my playlists and at the moment I have about 50 - all of them very organised and categorised :joy:

I’m probably not super helpful, since my favorite genre is pop (like Top 40 pop, cringey I know). [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite artist is [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] [name_m]Rodrigo[/name_m], but it changes all the time!

[name_f]My[/name_f] music taste is just kind of all over the place. Artists that come to mind are [name_f]Imagine[/name_f] Dragons, The [name_m]Jam[/name_m], [name_u]Owl[/name_u] City and [name_u]Halsey[/name_u]. Last night after I finished a new book I sang the chorus of Where is the [name_u]Love[/name_u]? by the [name_m]Black[/name_m] Eye Peas very badly to my cat several times. And something I really like is older songs that have modern covers, especially dark modern covers (Everybody Wants to [name_m]Rule[/name_m] the World by Tears for Fears and its cover by Lorde, Smells Like Teen [name_f]Spirit[/name_f] by [name_f]Nirvana[/name_f] and its cover by [name_f]Malia[/name_f] J). Am I Wrong by [name_u]Nico[/name_u] & [name_m]Vinz[/name_m] is good for making you happy and uplifted. Same while Whistle While You Work It by [name_f]Katy[/name_f] Tiz. Specifically Pompeii and Things We Lost in the [name_u]Fire[/name_u] by Bastille. Zombie by Bad Wolves, Home by Machine [name_m]Gun[/name_m] [name_u]Kelly[/name_u], We Are [name_m]Young[/name_m] by Fun and [name_f]Janelle[/name_f] [name_f]Monae[/name_f] and Impossible by [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] which I all found very close together via various [name_u]Marvel[/name_u] fanvids. Also [name_f]Lovely[/name_f] by [name_u]Billie[/name_u] [name_f]Eilish[/name_f] and [name_m]Khalid[/name_m] and Hold On I Still Want You (don’t know the artist) which I don’t listen to because the videos to those two songs were so sad. Que [name_f]Sera[/name_f] by [name_u]Justice[/name_u] [name_m]Crew[/name_m] and I Lived by OneRepublic for the nostalgia (we sang those in my Year 6 leavers assembly). Take That as well because when I was little my mum used to get out a speaker and play their music really loudly through the house whenever she tidied up. It’s Not Over Yet by for KING & COUNTRY because I always imagine this as a soundtrack while clips of teachers dumping homework on us all play. High Hopes and House of Memories by Panic! At The Disco just because. Superheroes by The Script, Something [name_m]Just[/name_m] Like This by Coldplay and Sick Boy by the Chainsmokers all remind me of each other. The Importance of Being Idle by [name_u]Oasis[/name_u] I learnt about in my music lesson (we were doing either osinatos or motifs, I had to Google it and even then I couldn’t remember the right word, so clearly it was a very important lesson that I will use every day for the rest of my life). And that’s about all. There are others that are just kind of good songs I like for no particular reason but this post is long enough without ‘and song xyz is good too. And abc. And…’.

I have three main genres I listen to - musical theatre, classic rock, and indie (subgenres indie pop and folk)

[name_f]My[/name_f] absolute favorite band is Jukebox the Ghost, followed by [name_f]Orla[/name_f] Gartland.

My favorite songs/artists/genres change all the time. I like new and old country, musical theatre, classical & pop. Here are some of my favorite singers/groups:

Dolly Parton
Taylor Swift
Katy Perry
*Celtic Woman
Reba McEntire
Blake Shelton
Kristin Chenoweth
Ben Platt
Tenille Townes
Judy Garland
Carrie Underwood
Adele
Kelly Clarkson
Enya

There is so many more I could think of, but that list would take hours to read so I’m gonna stop it here.

*I think they’re probably the most underrated on my list, especially because their singers change every few years but they’re always great!! Also, if you end up listening to them, one of the singers, called Mairead Carlin does some of her own stuff and she is amazing!!

A few artists I listen to that I think deserve more love …

[name_f]Vienna[/name_f] Teng
Laufey
[name_u]Billie[/name_u] Marten
The Accidentals
[name_u]Canyon[/name_u] City
[name_f]Adrianne[/name_f] Lenker / Big Thief
[name_u]Sammy[/name_u] [name_u]Rae[/name_u] + the Friends
[name_f]Katie[/name_f] Melua
[name_m]Joshua[/name_m] [name_m]Moss[/name_m]
