Top Ten on Tuesday, okay Wednesday, music!

ShabbyBlogsTuesdayTenThis week’s top ten is music, my favorite thing!  My parents listened to jazz and great singers like Sarah Vaughn and Judy Garland.  My father played the piano we had in our dining room.  Music was ever-present.  I love music, all kinds and have never limited myself, life is way too short for that!  So lets begin with just a few of my many fav’s in no particular order… except the first, the original “speed metal” genius composer!

  1. LOVE the line up of your favorites, which happen to be some of mine too. My mother raised us on Led Zepplin, Joni, Hendrix, and Bowie (among others). I’ve never really thought of Beethoven as the original “speed metal” composer, but that is so true! I think it’s great that your sons are all musicians. Maybe you’re familiar with Saxon Shore and Midnight Faces? (indie) They are my cousin Matt’s bands. Midnight Faces is new on the scene after moving away from Saxon Shore. How about The Drums? Johnny Pierce and I grew up together and went to the same church. Anyhow, if you haven’t heard of them, there are a couple of new bands for you to check out if you like indie. :) xo Jami

    • Hi Jami and thank you! I was listening to a story on NPR about music and the person being interviewed said that Beethoven wrote his music to be performed at an extremely fast tempo (not sure if that’s the right word) and he said very few, if any, orchestras are able to do this. I’ve often heard Beethoven described as the rock star of his age. I’ve listened to his music all of my life and still get goose bumps!
      Thanks for all the band names, will check them out and share with my sons, we all love indie music :)

    Fantastic list, Jayne! You have great taste in music; I love the picture of Radiohead. My favorite of the bands listed here is David Bowie, his new album is superb.
