I never do tags but I thought The Music Tag looked fun and I love music – here are my answers.
Some of my old gig tickets
What are your 5 favourite songs right now?
I listen to so many songs during the day & I tend not to listen to new music I am a creature of habit and like listening to old faithfuls and music that holds memories. So a few songs I have been enjoying lately are, Biffy Clyro – God & Satan, Tool – Parabol, Ben Howard – Black Flies, Metallica with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra – Hero Of The Day, Eddie Vedder – Rise and Jay-Z – Run This Town
Who are your favourite bands of all time?
Oh gosh where do I begin ….. I love
REM, AFI, Prince, Belle and Sebastian, Tool, Bon Jovi, Kid Rock, Puscifer, Metallica, Stone Sour, Silverchair, Elliott Smith, Type O Negative and I just couldn’t live without Porcupine Tree
What is the most played song in your iTunes?
My most played song is Potions by Puscifer
What song can you not get out of your head?
I’ve been singing Band on The Run by Paul McCartney and Wings all day – I heard it whilst out shopping this morning and I keep breaking out into song and singing the chorus. (love that song too).
What was the last album you bought?
This would have been a long long time ago as I don’t think I have bought a physical album for a while. If I remember correctly it would have been ‘The Very Best of Prince’.
I love Prince and his Diamonds and Pearls album was the first CD I ever bought back in 1992 it had a holographic cover and all the lyrics in the sleeve I used to listen to it all the time and learn the words to each song.
What was the last single you downloaded?
I don’t download singles very often but the last album I downloaded was Ben Howard – Every Kingdom
What is your favourite band right now?
I love Biffy Clyro and Ben Howard
What is your favourite type of music?
Looking at iTunes I’d have to say metal and rock
In your 25 Most Played list, what is #10?
Dirty Magic by The Offspring
What was the first gig you ever went to?
I was 14 and the year was 1994 (disclaimer) I saw Take That in Essen Germany. I went with a school friend and we had an amazing time. DReam were supporting and we thought we were the bees knees. Our parents let us go on our own. I must have screamed from start to finish. I was the biggest Howard Donald fan. German fans were mental and full on crazy.
What was the best gig you’ve ever been to?
I love seeing live music and my husband and I went on our first date to see Blink 182 back in March 2000 at Manchester Academy That was a good gig but not my best. I think my best ever would have to be REM at Glastonbury 1999 or Red Hot Chilli Peppers Reading Festival 1999 – that was a good year for me and music. I saw so many amazing bands. I really did party like it was 1999.
And finally, if there was one band/album/song you would recommend everyone listening to RIGHT NOW, what would it be?
I would recommend Stone Sour Zzyxz Rd
