I like music. I think everyone does. I think I’m like most people in the fact that I like multiple types of music. So I’m going to talk about some music I sort of like, and some I’m always in the mood for.
Okay, this might sound lame, but my favorite band is Fall Out Boy. This is mainly due to the fact my older brother listened to them a lot when I was younger, and I took after him. Their newest album Save Rock and Roll is my least favorite of all of theirs, and Folie a Deux is probably my favorite. I was really excited when they came back from Hiatus last year with the release of My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark. I’ve seen them in concert twice, both last year. They sound better live then they do in recordings.
I’m probably going to forget some bands in this post.
I also like Panic! At The Disco, who are only big really because of Fall Out Boy. They tour together a lot, so I got acquainted with their music, and I’m a pretty big fan of most of their music. I saw them in concert with Fall Out Boy about 13 months ago. They’re kind of weird live.
Twenty One Pilots is a band I’ve only been listening to actively for about a year, though I’ve known about them for about two maybe. I mainly listen to their album Vessel, but the song Addict With A Pen from their first album is one of my favorite songs in general. Their lyrics seem to talk about depression, and their music style is kind of unique, and pretty nice. They were the opening act at the second Fall Out Boy concert I went to. They aren’t the best live, but they’re okay.
Okay, my first concert I ever went to was for A Day To Remember when I was 13. I’m not much into that type of music anymore, but I enjoy it from time to time. I haven’t listened to their new album, but the album Homesick is the album that they were touring for when I saw them, and it’s pretty nice. They’re pretty good live.
Go Radio was the opening act for A Day To Remember at the concert I went to. I fell in love with their EP Do Overs and Second Chances at the concert, and bought the CD after it was over. Their song Goodnight Moon is special. They broke up about a year ago, which I guess is sad. It’s been awhile, but I remember them being good live.
I use to really love Avenged Sevenfold. I jam out to their more epic songs from time to time, but I don’t listen to them much. Same goes for NeverShoutNever, who I was addicted to for about five years ago, though I rarely listen to anymore. They both have some good songs, though the new NeverShoutNever is pretty bad.
I’m in love with some Queen. Mainly their more popular songs, though I haven’t really explored all their songs yet. I love jamming out to them.
Hall & Oates have a couple songs I enjoy. Mainly Private Eyes and Out of Touch. Pretty good.
I went through a stage of listening to a ton of Florence + the Machine and Imagine Dragons. They’re okay, and have some really good songs, especially Dog Days Are Over by Florence and Demons by Imagine Dragons.
Not a big fan of rap but The Show Goes On by Lupe Fiasco is pretty good.
When Fall Out Boy was on hiatus, they all did music still. Patrick Stump released a solo album called Soul Punk, which I actually really enjoy, but It’s kind of weird.
I am a Tolkien enthusiast. I really enjoy the Lord of the Rings movies and the music of Howard Shore that goes with them. Now my favorite song of his though has to be Dreaming of Bag End, which is actually from The Hobbit, but the song is simply majestic. It’s really short too.
Some Misty Mountains Cold doesn’t hurt either.
I like a lot of random songs from a bunch of artist, like any normal human being. To name a few: Stuck LIke Glue by Sugarland, Uprising by Muse, The Call by Regina Spektor, Mirrors by Justin Timberlake, Wagon Wheel by Darius Rucker, I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, Everyone Alive by Local H, Shaboom by The Good Timers, Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio, One Night In Bangkok by Murray Head, Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jets, 1985 by Bowling For Soup, etc, etc.
I also like some songs from bands that I use to really enjoy, but haven’t listened to much the past few years. Like Chiodos, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Metro Station, Blink-182, Reliant K, and others.
Billy Joel is amazing.
Halo music, mainly the music by Marty O’Donnell, is amazing. Video game music is usually just background filler, but with Halo it’s part of the experience. The Warthog Run makes the moment all the more epic. The Mjolnir Mix is pure awesome. Never Forget (especially the Midnight Version) makes me want to cry (or does sometimes). 117 is legendary. 😉
I also like some Celtic folk stuff. Orla Fallon’s Ni Na La just makes me want to dance, and I hate dancing.
Today I listened to some stuff my Joanna Grace (Burgess) in her new EP We’ve Always Dreamed. It’s pretty good, makes me think sort of. It’s poetic.
I wrote this whole think listening to Twenty One Pilots.
So that’s what I got. I most surely have forgotten something, but pfft.
