Who is your Your Favourite Band / Musician?

message 2: by Lauren (new)

Lauren Smith As with books or movies, I can't ever really pick one.

I was listening to Vampire Weekend last night though, reminded me of how great they are, so they're up near the top at the moment.

Also Radiohead, Muse, John Mayer, Coldplay (the first two albums, I stopped paying attention after that).

I also like a bit of Aimee Mann, Feist, The Killers, trying to get into the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dear Reader.

I like a lot of music. Old and new

I'm currently listening to Cat Stevens in my car, it relaxes me! Love Moonshadow, Wild Word etc

I like the Killers, Muse, Green Day. I also like Louise Carve and the Parletones when it comes to SA music, not a big fan of Afrikaans (not if every tom dick and Harry makes a CD every week)

My father loves to listen to the older music, so I like some of The Hollies, Simon and Garfunkle, CCR, Def Leopard, Deep Purple etc

Emma (emmauk007) | 1081 comments My tastes in music is as diverse in my taste in books, what can I say? I like variety and depends on my mood on what I listen to. I have all sorts on my pc. I like coldplay, Adele, Duffy. Kings of Leon, love them and I love his voice. I actually like Pink aswell just because of her voice, its so edgy. I also like Classical music at times, the only music I dont like is Metal and some rap. I wont listen to some idiot caling his gf a **tch and hoe...not my scene.

Ooooh whats it called?

message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Um, it has a M on the cover, with a photo of Mick Jagger on the front (in the part where an old records name would have been) Think its published by this "M" and its called Music

message 8: by משה (new)

משה Travis... Keane.... Linkin' Park... Skunk Anansie... Kings of Leon... I'm just a junkie for indie music. Though I also do like that new Lady Gaga song.... <> :)

lol i also like her songs :)

message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

You know Marlin, I like her to, she's different, and I recently saw an interview they had with her, and she's pretty normal actually, when she performs she puts on a great show!

I love Keane!

I'm generally influenced by my father. He loves music, so I love music and general knowledge about music...

Claudia (claudiavstoomanybooks) | 1779 comments Joanna Newsom! She's somewhat of an acquired taste I hear. But I fell in love with her music upon first listen.
Orion Rigel Dommisse
Florence and The Machine
Hmm, nothing else right now.

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

message 23: by Claudine (new)

Claudine | 163 comments Jealous Lauren! I really enjoy their music. Should be a spectacular show.

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

So Lauren, I know it's a bit late, but do share with us your Coldplay experience :)

I hear Kings of Leon were really bad in Cape Town... some of my friends got up half way and went home, what a waste of money!!

message 25: by Claudine (new)

Claudine | 163 comments I heard that too Niecole. Not my favourite band. I have recently discovered a white Afrikaans boy who sings reggae. He performed at a charity event my husband attended a couple of weeks ago, he brought the promo only cd home with him. He is really good. On the cd he covers Bob marley's No Woman No Cry. Hardly tell the difference.

Riana | 397 comments There are thousands, but I am going to keep it local, then it is most definately ANDRA! Love her unique voice, the lyrics to her songs are amazing and watching her play guitar is so enthralling! Plus she is such a lovely person!

message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Since I heard that Kings of Leon was so bad I dont really care for them anymore :)

The guy you're talking about sounds really cool!

Thanks Lu! I'm surprised to find someone who has a similar taste in music as most of my friends look at me like I'm crazy when I mention most of those bands.

Emma (emmauk007) | 1081 comments Was only now introduced to Beth Hart. I was given a load of her music and I just love her. If youve never heard of her before like me, then try and get just one of her Cd's, shes really edgy and soulful at the same time.
