Sharing the Love

Well SORRY you guys, I've been busy... I have a life you know.... I can't post on my blog every three seconds (*cough* Cherrybomb)... Just kidding. I have been busy. I'm the lead in a play and I have a bit on my plate right now. Wow, I can't believe that I just said that. That sounds like somebody's dad looking over his evening paper at the kid asking for something. Gross. Now I'm an old man...

Well, instead of droning on about slightly depressing subjects such as the latter, I am going to move onto healthier light. Ah, yes, "Sharing the Love" as it is. For some strange idea I want to tell you about my favorite artists. Music artists, so to say. I know weird - I was half awake while wondering in circles about what I should blog about...

So let's start with the basics! Open your iTunes and pull out your credit cards because this price list is going to be hefty. Not to mention this post... sorry if this takes your computer forever to load. There is a link under every artist, so if they look or sound interesting, you can try them out. I would reccomend right-clicking to "open in new tab (or window)" if you have Windows.

And now, in no purposeful order, I introduce:

ADELE

Favorite Song(s): Daydreamer, Hometown Glory

Adele has such a new voice, it's so unique. She has the most incredibly thoughtful lyrics and a cute voice. Her songs are what I call "Lay back and breathe deep songs." To hear Adele, click here: don't worry - it's not a YouTube video or anything.

***********************************************

Everyone I left out: The Beatles, The Fray, Mika, Black Eyed Peas, Of Montreal.

As you may have noticed, my music preferences differ drastically. I just like any song that has a good beat and makes me happy. Or sad. Just anything that has a deeper meaning, thoughtfull lyrics, and really makes you feel a certain emotion...

Just because I'm an idiot and want to bring wrath to you all, I want to know what CHERRYBOMB, EMILY H., OLIVIA K., FLANNERY M., and CAROLINE H. like to listen to. So, you five, get to work. NOW. Muhahaha, why I do feel quite evil tonight.

Look at this music video -- it's really cute.
