The Music Tag!!


Throwback to when I actually had time to do photography


Happy National Music Day!! My awesome blogger friend, Aaliyah, created an awesome music tag in honor of today, and I'm super excited to do it! So without further ado, let's get into the tag!

Rules:
1. Thank the person who tagged you and include a link to their blog (bc it's just the nice thing to do)
2. Answer the questions asked below
3. Tag 5+ bloggers and let them know
4. Add your own question to the end of the tag for your nominees to answer and answer it yourself (optional, but fun)
5. Include these rules in your post

Well, thanks for tagging me, Aaliyah!! Here we go! 

- - - - -

1. Do you play any instruments?

Piano! I started when I was seven, and although I don't take lessons anymore (I just didn't have time!), I still like to play. I really want to learn to play guitar as well!

2. What is your favorite music genre?

I CAN'T JUST PICK ONE!!! I'd have to say that it's between acoustic-type music like Ed Sheeran or Broadway/soundtracks. Those are honestly pretty much all that I listen to, to be completely honest. xD

3. Is there a music genre you absolutely cannot stand?

Opera. I hate it with a fiery burning passion. 

4. What is your favorite way to listen to music? (CD, MP3, Vinyl, Radio, etc)

Um, every possible way? I tend to listen to most music on my phone or laptop, just because that's where I have all of my music, and I can pull up whatever I want to listen to on YouTube. I'm also a big fan of Pandora, which I have on my phone, so I use that a lot. I've always thought it would be cool to listen to music on vinyl, but I've never owned a player. And let's be real, one of the best ways to play music is blasting it while in the car. The best singalongs happen when in the car!!

5. Top three favorite bands/singers?

AALIYAH THIS IS HARD. Ed Sheeran, definitely. Shocker I know.  See I listen to a ton of musicals so I'm struggling. Okay okay I can't just pick three. Birdy, Jasmine Thompson, Jeremy Jordan, Journey, Laura Osnes. The casts of Wicked, Hamilton, Bonnie and Clyde, Newsies, Les Mis. SO MANY.  

6. What are your three favorite chords?

...I really don't know. I'm sorry, Aaliyah!

7. What is your favorite song because of what it means to you?

Oh my gosh, and here I thought that #5 was hard! In the genre of Christian music, either Oceans or This Is Amazing Grace by Phil Wickham. I also adore Try by Colbie Caillat, and Lego House by Ed Sheeran is just my favorite song of all time, hands down. I feel like there are more, but I'm blanking at the moment. 

8. (My question!!) What is your current favorite song? 

Even my own questions are hard! I feel like all I do is ramble about musical theatre songs, so I'll pick something a little different- 7 Years, by Lukas Graham. :)

  4. Opera. I agree. The only thing is I never even think of that as a music genre I just think of country as something I can't stand ( which isn't true anymore

    Ed Sheeran however is a game changer. I love this music. I have been obsessed with the song Give me Love for forever!

  7. I would have to agree, jamming in the car is the best. There is nothing like having music played loud...or listening to live music. Live music is probably the best way to listen, ever. And "Lego House" is such a cool song! :)
