TMI Tuesday - 8/30

1. What’s the most annoying song in the world?
Squeeze Box by The Who, hands down. Hate it.

2. What’s the saddest song in the world?
Water Moves Me, by Katherine Wheatley. This song isn't exactly sad, but it is a lovely song that really speaks to me. I have always been very drawn to water and it's where I like to go when I need peace and solitude. It's also my refuge when I'm sad or lonely.

3. What’s the sexiest song in the world?
Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye. I can't think of any song that could get me in the groove faster. I can't even hear it without wanting to snuggle into my lover, not to mention that the hips start going.....

4. Name a new, to you, band or music artist that you can’t get enough of? Post a link to one of their songs.
I've just discovered Adele (I know I'm slow off the mark, but I just don't have the time to listen to much current music). I've only had a chance to listen to a few tracks so far, but I love her voice. Rolling in the Deep was my introductory song.

5. Have you met any famous musicians?
Yes, I have met several!

6. What song best describes your life?
My life has many aspects to it, so here are a couple that hit the main parts. It's According To You, by Orianthi and Freak on a Leash by Korn at the core, tempered with some Lovers in a Dangerous Time (I like the Barenaked Ladies version) thrown in, then topped off with Three Little Birds by Bob Marley (the part that everyone sees).

7. How important is your partner’s taste in music to you?
I have a very eclectic musical taste, so anything my partner likes is usually not a problem for me. I enjoy sharing music with my partner and really like to be exposed to new (to me) stuff.

8. Do you sing in the shower?
Rarely. I don't usually have much reason to have to use my voice excessively - I'm pretty quiet. This means, however, that my voice is not very powerful. Though I love to sing, I can be rendered voiceless just by a yell, or prolonged talking or singing.

9. What was the last live music show you attended? Did you buy a t-shirt?
I'm not one for concerts - I've only been to a handful in my life. Much like sports, I'd rather participate than watch. I've never bought a shirt.

10. What’s the sweetest song in the world?
Bridge over Troubled Water, by Simon and Garfunkel. I am an extremely independent, strong and organized person that is known for getting things done and I'm the go-to person for many, many people in my life. Unfortunately, nobody seems to notice when I'm overwhelmed or remembers that sometimes I need looking after too. I often think when I hear this song that though I wouldn't need it all the time, I would love to have somebody in my life that could be strong for me sometimes.

11. Can you play a musical instrument? Which one?
Alrighty, then....here's where I have to really start being cagey with these questions. Yes, I play several musical instruments. I cannot itemize them for you though.

12. Are you in a band or are you a performing solo music artist? If yes, what kind of music do you play?
Yes, I'm in a band. What kind of music do we play? Kick-ass music, that's what!

13. Have you ever dated a musician?
Yes, I have.

14. Are you a groupie? No.
If no, do you wish you were and for what music performing artist or band?
No, I'm not a groupie of any band or musician, nor do I desire to be one. If by groupies you mean 'enthusiastic fans that follow a band around on tours' and not 'young women who follow bands around on tours seeking sex with the musicians', then the band I'm in has groupies - there are several faces that we see in the audience every time we play!

Bonus: Describe your worst, best, strangest, funniest or saddest concert moment.

Crap! I have a great story for this one, but I can't tell it without detonating a mine. Too bad.

Bonus, Bonus: If you listen to the radio, what station and type of music are you tuned to the most?

I rarely listen to the radio, but when I do, I tend to listen to older music - anything from 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.

  1. 1. LOL...

    2. That is a nice song. I watched the video on youtube, that's nice too.

    4. I do like her voice very much so I recently checked out a lot of her music but I don't really enjoy a lot of her music. Wonderful voice though...I do love the "Rolling in the Deep" Jamie-XX remix.

    6. Ha! Freak on a Leash...love it, love that song. Wish I had thought of that :D

    12. :-) :-)
    I want to be your groupie.

    Bonus: Awww V! You can't say that much and leave me hangin'...or maybe you can. :D


  2. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPYQcvn7ctw

  3. 1. LMAO!!! I'm betting there's a good reason. Such an innocent song to hate. (I actually like it)

    10. I'm right there with you on this one, sister.

    And I'm jealous of your musical talent. I have none. N-O-N-E Ah, well. I make up for it elsewhere. ;)

    I'm glad you played!

  4. Interesting choices on 6. Wish my teen would have a voice like you describe in 8. Bonus- cliffhanger! :)

  5. Your answer to #10 in particular really resonated with me. I've always liked and been able to relate to Bridge Over Troubled Water. I hadn't heard Water Moves Me, but thanks for mentioning it. It's beautiful.
