Would you like to get to know me? I mean, you're reading this ol' blog here, and i think i am pretty real and pretty free on here, but i saw a post the other day about sharing the person behind the pretty images and diy projects.
Nothing defines me more than music. My "if you were on a deserted island" answers always consisted of bringing my music. I was in choir in elementary school all the way through college, so singing is important to me. Voice is important to me, so most of the musicians i like, i like for their voice. And if i don't like a voice, i can't like that music. Sorry, Dave Matthews and U2, but as much as i respect them musically, i can't get on board. I sing, hum, and rock out in the car, in the shower, at my desk, and i'm that girl who doesn't realize she's singing along with her mp3 player.
So here are some voices that melt me like buttah and make me feel their songs in my gut/heart/veins. What, you don't have music pulsing through you? I surely do. Don't ask which songs by these voices, b/c i could never pick, ever.
Michael Buble. I can't get over how many people in blog land love him. Girls, i think i was the first, lol. I saw in concert years ago and met him backstage after. I told him he was effortless and he told me he loved my name. Now he's my boyfriend. Ok not really, but wouldn't that be sa weet!
Morrissey. I know i've spoken of my love for Moz and the Smiths before, but this is the voice. This voice is like nothing else. The man is a lyrical genius-"Emotional air raids exhausted my heart," i mean come on! And this is live and he sounds like this! Sure, he's 50 now and has a much smaller pompadour (look at that thing!) but he still is IT, capital I capital T.
Mad piano playing and haunting vocals. Yep, Tori Amos. Girls got skillz.
The Beatles. You will get chills with this one, i promise.
Whose music could you not live without?
Also, this marks my 100th post. Super exciting for someone who never dreamed of having a blog!
