I wrote about books, and I've written about TV ... So today I decided to write about music.
I adore music. The word adore doesn't even capture the feeling adequately. I am in love with music. (In teenage language that means "I heart music!") I dreamed of being a singer when I was little...and when I was big, but life got in the way of that dream. (and if we are talking about the brief dream of being a famous pianist, talent got in the way there!)
I've sang at graduations, weddings, funerals, karaoke bars (as the DJ nonetheless!), in choirs, in church ... needless to say, I love to sing.
Let's not sell the art of listening to music short though. I could spend all day listening to good music, though it is inevitable I will be singing along with it.
So I thought I'd list a few of my favorite artists to help you get a better (or possibly more confusing) look into who I am.
I love love love The Fray! Everything about them. They have been my favorite band for about three or so years. I just missed their concert recently and my husband had to listen to me grumble about it for about three days straight.
Favorite Song by them is Unsaid.
Other Bands that make me Happy are
Jars of Clay
When trying to narrow down a singer ... the task is not as easy. I can name a list of singer that I love ...
But if I HAD to name my favorite singer I'd probably have to go back to being 13 years old again and admit that I love love love Michael W. Smith. He totally inspired me to love music and in countless ways his songs and lyrics have gotten me through many a rough moment in life. And OMG have you heard his Christmas CDs! If you haven't ... I highly suggest it this holiday season. They are amazing. It is my life long goal to meet this man. I ALMOST got to once. He was signing his Worship II CD at a local book store, but of course I had to go and have a baby that day and be stuck in the hospital! Luckily my mom went and got me the autograph and CD....but it just wasn't the same.
So there you have it. This is Poppins defined by music.
Who is your favorite band/singer?
