I'm Featured! ff 12

Following Fridays



Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends.

This weeks question is by my fellow Featured Blogger, BadassBookReviews :


Q: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

A: My kids actually tease me constantly about not having any current music.  I try to listen to the stuff they suggest, but guess I am old school.  I have no idea who is ‘popular’ today, but with so much indie out, it’s hard to keep track of what to listen to.

Old School:  Sting, Al Jarreau, Hiroshima, Pink Floyd, Dido (check out 'Sand in My Shoes')

Recent-ish: Nouvelle Vague, Skye Edwards, Imogen Heap, Temper Trap, The Thievery Corporation, Stacey Kent

If you haven't heard of it, check out Spotify - a great place to listen to music and share with friends.

Looking forward to seeing your favs, as it might save me from the groans from the back seat while I am driving!

I hope you can take a few minutes to look around my site, or at least come back and peruse!  Thanks for stopping by!  I have enjoyed being Featured!

  44. Hello
    New follower :)
    Okay--I must have overdosed on the caffeine this am, as I have been stopping by different blogs and JUST REALIZED I posted the wrong question for today's Feature and Follow. ACK!
    My fave music:
    Avenged Sevenfold, Nickelback, Three Days Grace, Linkin Park...etc. I love all sorts.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow! You have interesting music choices. I have only heard of a couple of those artists. My dad has a Hiroshima album that I used to listen to all of the time. I really enjoyed it. I will have to take a listen at some of the others you mentioned to check them out. :)

    Congratulations on the feature this week!
