Today's Getting-to-Know-You question was submitted by Ava! 
What are your favorite bands and/or music to listen to right now?
Chase has a ton of music and when we were first married, he scoffed at my selection of Dashboard Confessional and Michael Buble. I'm over Dashboard now but we both love Mr. Michael. Chase has converted me over to the likings of Daft Punk and Ratatat. I'm still trying to love reggae for him but I don't think I can do it. I've recently been listening to Ingrid Michaelson a lot. Is she old school now? I feel like everybody's already over her. I'm not into the music scene as you can see. Are the Backstreet Boys still together?? What year is this?

  2. I'm addicted to Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses." For some reason, I have a thing for classic, classic rock lately and it's not disappointing! If you like the good stuff today, you'll LOVE where it started! Although that's 1 of the 2 songs I like by the Stones. They're not my favorite. But "Wild Horses" has been on repeat for a few days now.

  4. Ingrid Michaelson will never get old!! As for Backstreet.. :b

    Right now I am trying to expand my musical taste and have been listening to a lot more Indie bands and such. Currently I am obsessed with The Boxer Rebellion who a friend and I discovered while watching Going the Distance.

  7. I love all sorts of oldies! I think I was born in the wrong decade! I am head over heels for The Beatles. And I like Buble too. His voice is wonderful :P

  8. I love me some Ingrid, especially Little Romance! So good!
    I'm also quite obsessed with the Burberry channel on Youtube (as evident on my blog lol). They have all these beautiful acoustic numbers! And as for Michael...well...I may or may not have rocked out with him in the shower just now. Don't tell da huzb.

  9. I love all kinds of music. Lately I've really been enjoying playing around with 8tracks.com because I've discovered a lot of amazing new artists there and re-discovered some people I really liked as a kid. I've been listening to a lot of Joanna Newsom, 70's Kate Bush, Bat for Lashes, Cat Power and Festival because of 8 tracks.

    I know you said once in my blog that you liked discovering new music (and thank you so much for commenting!!!). Did you know I put up an 8 track playlist every other Friday? It'll usually be a list I made or a list someone else made that I really like. I have a new one that just went up. Feel free to check them out, and I hope you discover some new music you love there!

  11. You should try listening to Collie Buddz - especially the song "Tomorrow's Another Day." That's the song that made me like reggae =)

  12. I don't have a favourite genre. I just listen to what I like. It's the same with my clothes. I dont have a particular style, I just wear what I like.

    Some artists off the top of my head that I like: Young the Giant (formerly The Jakes), The Caesars, Coeur de pirate, The Explorer's Club, Hall & Oates, Ella Fitzgerald, Polly Scattergood, The Kills, Jonsi, The Shins, Belle & Sebastian, She & Him, The Edwin Hawkins Singers...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Death Cab, The Shins, and the Beatles. If I was stuck on an island these are the three bands I would choose to keep me company with their music.

  14. My favorite genre is country. I'm in love with Brad Paisley especially. But besides country my favorite thing to listen to is German music! Major Tom by Peter Schilling is good, but I love newer bands like Fettes Brot and Die Arzte as well. The music is so amazing, it's one of the main reasons I'm going to learn German in school next year.

  15. I'm glad to tell you that BSB is together again
    Oh. Joy.

  16. My boyfriend has gotten me listening to a lot of amazing music since we've been together. When we first met, we bonded over a mutual love for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, which is my all-time favorite band. I'm just so in love with Karen O. Radiohead and The Pixies are the bands he's converted me to the most. The one and only band I knew of before we dated and introduced him to is The Kills. Their album Midnight Boom is so so good.

    Of course, I love me some good girly pop music, and no amount of teasing or protestation from him can make me stop listening to Ashlee Simpson and Girls Aloud.

  17. I don't know if The Backstreet Boys are still together, but they are still my ringtone! I defy anyone to say that "I want it that way" isn't the best sing a long song EVER!

    My less humiliating musical loves at the moment are Bright Eyes, Taken By Trees, Arcade Fire, Au Revoir Simone (how can you not love a band that takes its name from Pee Wee's Big Adventure?), Bon Iver, and Bonnie Prince Billy.

  18. I will always love Ingrid. A lot. :) As for the Backstreet Boys, they are back together minus Kevin. Right now I am loving Vampire Weekend and Phoenix.

  19. I'm totally into Michael and Ingrid too! They are just happy singers!
    Other happy singers/songs I am really into include
    - Vampire Weekend. (M79 is my favorite song)
    - Beirut (Postcards from Italy makes you feel like you are on vacation!!!)
    - The Weepies (They have a really vintage sound- Check out All is Beauty)
    - HoneyHoney (Little toy gun!!!)
    and of course...anything by Little and Ashley!!!
    They have great voices!

    I'm so glad you posted this because it gave me some new ideas (:

  20. Hahaha I like some of Dashboard's music- Vindicated was awesome! And I LOVE Ingrid michaelson, she's amazing. I have such a varied taste in music though- I couldn't list my favorites, if I even have dedicated ones haha. I guess my most consistent favorites are Canadian rock band Default, and the Beatles.

  21. i second wild horses, by mazzy star and by the sundays. and mazzy star fade into you.
    and BSB is totally going on tour with nkotb. some of my friends have already bought tickets. i plan on reading a good book that nights.
    and if you like some different more authentic sounding blues country, eric church is great.

  22. I love all types of music but, mostly techno and pop... Top 5 artist in itunes at the moment are Pitbull, Far East Movement, BAKER, Rihannam, and David Guetta but, I have 3000+ songs in my music library so it changes :)

  23. My favorite is Bethany Dillon! I'm also a big fan of Paramore, and I love Sara Bareilles!

  25. I am obsessed with Buble! Seriously, I think that 4 concerts makes me obsessed. Jason Mraz's "Anythin You Want" is fantastic! Check out Dave Barnes, Mat Kearney, Tyrone Wells, and I 2nd Bethany Dillon! And anything by Gavin DeGraw is fantastic. And Rogue Wave, Adele, Kings of Leon's new album, The Noisettes, I could go on and on.

  28. I listen to a lot of different types of music, but right now my favorites are Weezer & Jet. I love all the crazy songs & how they change their tempos. I had always liked a few Weezer songs, but never had an album until last year. Now I'm hooked & have 7!

  29. One Republic! I seriously cannot get enough of them!

  31. Van Morrison's "In the garden":

    no teacher,
    no guru,
    just you and I, and nature,
    and the Holy Spirit,
    in the garden.

  32. I love a lot, a lot of music, but country has a special place in my heart. Ultimately, for me, it comes to the beat and feel of the song, moreso than the actual lyrics. I'm kind of weird though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I looooooove music!!! I like alternive and also some pop. Ever heard of Diamond Rings? Im hooked on them!! I also love onerepublic. I have a lot of single songs and dont download albums very often. Ive spend most of my life listening to The Killers, they never get old!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Backstreet Boys are still together but I think their best years are past. Muse is a good band if you like a bit of modern rock with melody.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh cool! You picked my question! I feel like a celebrity for just today! hehe...
    I LOVE John Mayer's music. His music and voice touches my heart. I listen to his Continuum album on repeat. My husband and I share a love for Dave Matthews Band. And I adore Matt Nathanson (His music...his mouth is a lil dirty). I also love Ingrid Michaelson, as well as Sara Barielles. I love music that makes me happy and Kesha puts me in a good mood, even though she appears crazy. Thanks for picking my get to know you question! :)

  40. I love, love, love reggae. For a starter I'd try Damian Marley & Stephen Marley's "All Night". It's more "fun" reggae, less spark up a doobie and chill reggae. Know what I mean?

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Buble is a favorite of mine. Seriously. I melt at the beautifulness of his voice. Yup.

    Ingrid Michaelson is great! (Ummm... Have you listened to her song 'Far Away'?!?! LOVE with all my heart!!!). If you like her, you might also like Kate Nash, Regina Spektor and (maybe) Never Shout Never. let me know what you think!

  42. Florence + the Machine is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Good question! I love melodic indie rock. My all time favorite bands include already mentioned Muse, Keane, Starsailor ('Some of Us' by them is the best!), Train, The Script and Damien Rice. A guilty pleasure of mine is previous American Idol - David Cook.

  44. It's been a ridiculous week and I am just now seeing this question. Without a doubt my #1 fave group is Super Junior. Since you are Korean I would suspect that you've heard of them. But maybe not. I'm half Indian (as in from India)and I have no idea about the Indian music scene. Sorry for trying to stereotype you! Check out this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnMoDDbEccE
    Or this one (they really are superb!) -

    Oh! And their style is always impeccable!

  45. I love Michael Buble! Excellent choice. Right now I'm really loving The Black Keys and Florence + The Machine, and Oasis and The Beatles are always my tried and true favorites. Always in the CD changer in my jeep.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Uhm... Backstreet and I still have a connection. I was IN. LOVE. with them when I was younger and they're music is still great. <Loser alert!

    I'm not loving Buble but I do love Pink, Florence and the Machine, Sara Bareilles, Kate Nash, and Lily Allen. (I love strong, cheeky women.)
