The Music Tag


Every month I write out playlist of what I've listened to, more or less on repeat for that month but I feel like other than that I don't really talk about music in depth on this blog. Music affects everyone differently but I also think that everyone listens to music as a form of relaxation. I enjoy listening to music to and from work as it helps me to wind up and down when I've have a stressful day.

1. Which bands/artist do you own the most albums by?
There are a lot of bands that I own all of their albums, even if they haven't released many albums but I probably own the most albums by Paramore, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Panic! At The Disco, Muse, Florence + The Machine, The Killers, White Lies, Snow Patrol, Keane, Foo Fighters and Taylor Swift.

2. What was the last song you listened to?
Scars To Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara, she's my current musical obsession.

3. What's in your CD player right now?
I don't have a CD player but the last song I listened to on my iPod was Learn To Love Again by Lawson.

4. What was the last show you attended?
The last festival that I went to was OnBlackheath, the last live show I went to was Laura Marling.

5. What was the greatest show you've ever been to?
I loved seeing Laura Marling, she was absolutely amazing and her support act, Marika Hackman was equally amazing too. That said, I also liked Bruce Springsteen, Noah and The Whale, Panic! At The Disco and Keane.

6. What's the worst show you've ever been to?
I saw Billy Bragg twice at two different festivals during the same summer and the first time he was awesome, but the second time he was shit because it was the same set list, the same speeches, everything so it was kind of annoying for me to hear it all again. 

7. What's the most musically involved you have ever been?
When I was a child I played the violin, piano, recorder and flute... So I guess I was fairly musical, but I persued visual arts instead when I was choosing my GCSEs.

8. What show are you looking forward to?
I don't have any plans for any shows, although my friend really wants to go to Reading Festival, so that's something I'm considering saving up for because it's good value for money; you see many, many different artists for that price point. 
10. What is your favourite band shirt?
The only one that I own is from Panic! At The Disco's 'Vices and Virtues' tour, so that one. Although I'm not sure that it's real merchandise because I bought it for like £5 from a creepy guy outside the venue, so...

11. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?
I've always been completely obsessed with Hayley Williams from Paramore, so she's the obvious choice for me.

12. One musician or group you wish would make a comeback?
I used to love bands such as Evanescence and My Chemical Romance, but I feel like they've had their time a little (for me, personally). I would love to see The Killers make an album as amazing as Hot Fuss was for me, but I don't think that will happen as their musical style has evolved so much since then.

13. One band/artist you've never seen live but always wanted to?
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Muse and P!nk.

14. Name four or more flawless albums.
Hot Fuss - The Killers
Fallen - Evanescence
Riot! - Paramore
Death Of A Batchelor - Panic! At The Disco
Under The Iron Sea - Keane
Employment - Kaiser Chiefs

15. How many music related videos/DVDs do you own?
I think one, from Keane at the O2 arena in London in 2007 as it was the first proper concert I'd ever been to.

16. How many concerts/shows have you been to, total?

I've seen a lot of different acts live as I went to a lot of festivals when I was a teenager; of the ones I can remember I've seen...
The Invisible, Athlete, Keane, Ghosts, Laura Marling, Marika Hackman, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly., Panic! At The Disco, Bruce Springsteen, Noah and The Whale, Manic Street Preachers, Adam Ant, Billy Bragg and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

17. Who have you seen the most live?
I've seen The Invisible, Elbow and Billy Bragg twice and Athlete four times.

18. What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
I love all of the High School Musical soundtracks, as well as all of the Twilight saga soundtracks (didn't love the films though, haha) and at the moment I'm loving the Bridget Jones Baby soundtrack.

19. What was your last musical "phase" before you wisened up?
Listening to only alternative music because I thought it was cool and wanting to fit in with the emo clique. As I've got older I realise how much I like music in general, not just one genre. 

20. What's your "guilty pleasure" that you hate to admit to liking?
I have a love/hate relationship with Meghan Trainor and Carly Rae Jepsen, both of them make really irritating but catchy songs that are great to dance to at parties. I'm also into a bit of Justin Bieber, Little Mix and One Direction... All of these artists are a little bit cringey but I like if I'm in the mood, so I'm unashamed.
