Favourite songs or musicians

This topic from Long and Short Reviews was an interesting one. I have a fairly wide-ranging musical taste and will have songs I like from most genres, with the possible exception of dubstep, which I have never yet managed to enjoy. However, my favourite genre?

Rock.

My absolute favourite band is Queen, but I also love The Darkness, Def Leppard, Bryan Adams and most other classic rock band. I've seen a lot of bands in concert and would almost be able to say it's impossible not to be entertained at a rock gig, were it not for that dire Motley Crue gig I went to a few years ago. If not for the rotating drum kit I'd have fallen asleep.

Choosing particular songs is more difficult. My husband and I like to spend the evening on YouTube taking it in turns to pick songs to play, and this can very easily go on into the early hours because there are so many we love. My favourite Queen track is "Don't Stop Me Now", but there are many other tracks that have meaning for me, including several which are attached to old stories of mine in my brain.

The current track connected to my latest WIP is Peppercorn's "Hyperventilating". It gave my WIP its name, and I'm hoping to have Hyperventilating finished next year. But in the meantime, give the song a listen. It's great.

So what are your favourite songs or musicians?

  4. Wow sounds like you have seen as many rock concerts as I have! Def Leppard was one of my favs. Hubby and I sat with their families during one concert. What a blast!! That was when I worked as a DJ at a rock radio station. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine. https://www.tenastetler.com/lsrs-wednesday-blogging-challenge-favorite-songs-or-musicians/

  6. I'm going to go waaaaay out on a limb here and say that you and I are pretty close to the same age (i.e. clearly still quite young!) based on your excellent taste in music. Motley Crue was the first band I saw in concert.

    My selection is here.

  9. While I do like the bands I grew up listening to, I prefer to listen to current bands, and discover new music. Some of my kids support the indie bands they enjoy, and have gotten producer creds on CDs. It's as hard for indie bands to get attention, as for us indie writers.

    1. I do love to discover new music, but I admit I'm not really a fan of millenial pop.
