Welcome to another edition of Hobby Corner, a monthly edition I introduced to talk about my hobbies and interests other than reading. It’s always important to not forget these things, so here I am to talk about some of mine.
This month’s topic: music!
Everyone listens to music in some form or another, so I think we can all relate to this one in some way. I’ve listened to all kinds of music and my tastes have changed over the years, but I’m always keen on listening to pop music of many kinds. But not only do I enjoy pop music, I also enjoy musicals, K-pop, J-pop, instrumental, electronic, dance. Pretty much anything with an uplifting or cool beat I like.
So today I’m going to talk about some of my favorite music! Each is in it’s own classification, so here we go:
Owl City has been my favorite artist for several years now. I love the albums he puts out and I find them to be so fun and easy to get into. My favorite album is Ocean Eyes as it has some of my favorite songs like Vanilla Twilight, Fireflies, and Tidal Wave. Really, the whole album is amazing, but those are a few of my favorites. I’d classify him as electronic pop and I really suggest giving a listen!
Is anyone surprised this is here? Anyone? I didn’t think so. I am OBSESSED with this music and I really, REALLY want to see the musical. It’s amazing and I love how it tells some of the history behind America, of course with a little tweaks here and there. It’s crazy. I listen to this soundtrack on a weekly basis, if not daily, and I’ve memorized a lot of the words to most of the first act, and a few parts of songs in the second. It’s amazing and my top favorite song is My Shot, but I also love Right Hand Man, Satisfied, and Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down). Just watch this performance and tell me you don’t want to see it live:
Lindsey’s been around for a while. She’s even performed on America’s Got Talent – and then they didn’t think she’d go far with her violin playing and dance moves after a while. Oh how wrong! Her music is uplifting, powerful, they tell a story, and they’re so fun. Shatter Me is probably my favorite album of hers that’s out and I love songs like Shatter Me, Roundtable Rival, and Heist. Definitely check her out because it’s so good!
