Belated Sunday Question

with 6 comments

On the heels of my previous post about Dan Fogelberg, I’ll ask this question:

Who is your favorite musician/band and why? The lyrics? The music? Both? Does their music conjure up certain memories? Feel free to share.

  1. Good question, and one that is very hard to answer! Here are a few possibilities:
    Sugarland – I’ve yet to hear a song that I didn’t feel like singing along to.
    Little Big Town – Love their harmonies.
    Aerosmith – Lots of memories of the late 80’s and early 90’s
    Van Halen – Lots of memories of the late 80’s and early 90’s
    B-52’a – Probably my favorite, because it’s one group that my sister and I both share as a favorite, and have lots of memories together associated with songs like ‘Rock Lobster’ and ‘Dance This Mess Around’. Although they’re pretty mainstream now, in the early 80’s in Miami, they were typical punk/new wave, and it reminds me of that ‘phase’ of my life.

  2. My two favorites are Amy Grant and John Denver.
    Yeah, I know….I’m soooo not cool.

    John Denver – probably because he opened up a new world to me.
    Amy – probably because she’s helped me accept my world.

  3. Pink Floyd. (Details withheld to protect the innocent.)

    Nah, seriously, that is a tough question. I remember the B-52’s and R.E.M. from my high school years, plus Aerosmith and Van Halen too. Yep, Eric and I share that age difference. 🙂

    In the department of really strange, I like some bands like Clandestine (Celtic rock, broke up a few years ago) and soundtrack music. My current iPod playlists are littered with music from “Battlestar Galactica”. Okay, I am embarrassed to admit that, even with y’all hearting John Denver 🙂 But hey—It’s got otherworldly overtones, lyrics in Sanskrit, and sections of really heavy percussion. You just don’t find that enough nowadays. One discussion thread online is entitled “Behold the Poundy Drums”. Pretty much sums it up.

    Maybe I should have just defaulted to typical Decatur Sapphic Music. Surely nobody would make fun of me for that. Right?

  4. Laura, the reasons for your favorite musicians are very cool!

    My favorite bands so far in my life are ones that mix up a lot of genres of music, so it’s hard to put them in a category, themselves. When my favorite genres are put together in one song, it makes me so much happier. My favorite bands are also really great in concert, which makes a complete circle of the experience for me. When I listen to them, I also think about them on stage and how much fun I had.

    311 – so many great memories related to college and fun times. l love the happy, carefree feel of the music.

    Incubus – also some memories of college, but mainly I love their deep, dark sound along with clever and poetic lyrics. It’s funny that I didn’t realize how strong and often times political their lyrics were until a few years later. I feel as if I have fallen in love with them all over again, but even stronger.

    Ozomatli – Like 311, another happy style of music, but more on the latin style. They make me want to dance around when I listen to them. Then I saw them in concert and the energy they bring in person is rare – every person there is dancing and singing and laughing. It’s quite a show! They are awesome.
