Friend Making Monday: All About That Bass

All About That Bass

Here’s how it works: you copy the questions, answer them and post them to your own blog.  Then you come back here, and in the comments, post the link to your blog post with your answers to this week’s questions.  If you don’t have a blog of your own, just post your answers in the comments.

1. What kind of music did you grow up listening to?
What would now be dubbed as “classic”…Huey Lewis & The News, Roy Orbison, CCR, Jim Croce, Robert Palmer, Johnny Cash, George Jones, and the like.

2. When you were old enough to get your own radio in your bedroom or your own Walkman or mp3 player, what kind of music did you prefer to listen to?
My very first CD was Garth Brooks – No Fences.  However, country was not what I normally listened to once I had my own things to play music with.  I listened to Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ozzy Ozbourne, Guns & Roses, Nirvana, Enya…a wide variety of music, really, but definitely not like the stuff my mom and dad listened to.

3. Did/do you ever sleep with music playing?
I used to, but have gotten away from that habit.

4. Do you like to listen to seasonal music?
Not really.  I do really like listening to bands and music from Ireland around St. Patrick’s Day…but really, I like listening to that kind of music all the time…but satellite radio has a Saint Patty’s Day station that happens for a couple/few days near St. Patrick’s Day.  I am really not a fan of Christmas music, but I have to say that I love TransSiberian Orchestra and Manheim Steamroller.  I love the Nutcracker, but have never seen it.  Hopefully next year me and my friend Amanda can go see it.

5. What was your favorite singer/band/group growing up?
I loved me some New Kids on the Block

6. What was your favorite song growing up?
This is a hard one because I don’t really remember.

7. What is your current favorite singer/band/group?
I really like Five Finger Death Punch, Tartanic, Taylor Swift (I will not be ashamed of this), One Republic, Pharrell, Bruno Mars.  I don’t really have just one favorite.

8. What is your current favorite song?
I really really love Happy by Pharrell and Uptown Funk with Bruno Mars.

9. Do you have an all-time favorite song?
Yes, Horse With No Name by America

10. Did you ever want to be in a band?  Or, were you ever in one?
I did used to dream of being in a band.  I wanted to be the singer.  However, I can’t always carry a tune.


  1. I love NKOTB too, and I'm with you on Uptown Funk!

  2. Isn't it sad to realize that music we grew up with is now considered classic???

    Sorry, I've been Uptown Funk'd out - they played it a gazillion times at that dance comp we just went to!
