My Favorite Tunes, Recently

I love music, I always have. I not only love to listen to it but I am one of those people who does private concerts in my car 🙂 Don’t waste your time trying to get a ticket though, they are for exclusive members only. My musical taste has changed a lot over time. When I was in late Elementary school and Early Middle School the only music you could get me to lay ears on was Christian music. I thought all other music was from the devil himself (this was my goody-goody stage). My mom tells a story of how when I was younger she was listening to a county station on the radio and I told her to change it to K-Love ( the local Christian station) she said she didn’t want to listen to that at the moment. My response to her “but don’t you love Jesus?” I eventually got over that and then turned into a Country lover, for most of late High School that was the only thing you could find me listening to. Then for a while I guess I got wild and ventured into the secular world. My musical taste changed the most when coming to college. I met people who were into these really funky, sort of unique and not mainstream bands. I didn’t think I would ever hop on that band wagon but I have found my niche! I like the more mellow music that has a unique sound and isn’t loud, has dumb lyrics or is unorigional (I am talking to you Katy Perry). This isn’t to say that I don’t still listen to some country or pop every now and then but mainly my ears only wanna hear the REAL good stuff (personal opinion of course).

So I wanted to share some groups, albums and songs I have really been diggin’ lately ( I sound eccentric right?) Take a listen and see what you think! Not for everyone but you gotta at least give it a try!
