The Music Tag


So forever and a day ago, my bestie Aaliyah nominated me to do this FABULOUS TAG ABOUT MUSIC!! (Thank you, bro!) *screams and flails* I’m OBVIOUSLY not excited about this at all. ;) Music is my love, people. It’s everything I can’t say, everything I can say but don’t want to. IT’S EVERYTHING. Just close your eyes for a minute and imagine the APOCALYPTIC WASTELAND that would ensue if music didn’t exist. Now that you have a cheery mental image to focus on, LET’S GET THE PARTY STARTED. 

RULES:
01. Thank the person who tagged you and include and link to their blog. (because kindness, bro)
02. Answer the questions asked below.
03. Tag 5+ bloggers and let them know. (social media, text, email, comment, whateves)
04. Add your own question to the end of the tag for your nominees to answer and answer it yourself. (optional, but fun)
05. Include these rules in your post.


01. DO YOU PLAY ANY INSTRUMENTS?

YES BRO. ONE. You thought this was going to be more climactic right? BECAUSE I’VE LIKE PUBLISHED MUSIC AND STUFF? No. I’m very unspectacular, actually. I play the piano, and I actually don’t play it that well. I have friends who can play soooo much better than me. BUT I REALLY WANT TO LEARN THE DRUMS. (Because if I can’t marry them, then I might as well play them??? idk it’s not really a great compromise but whatever.) For now I'll just pretend I can play the drums. 



02. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC GENRE?

I’VE THOUGHT LONG AND HARD ABOUT THIS ONE. Because I love soooo many genres! But if I were to describe my idea of perfection, it would be: rock/soul/alternative/western/gritty/ASDFGHJKL. That’s the best wordy description I can think of, but if you want a real life example of this, listen and weep, my frens.


03. IS THERE A MUSIC GENRE YOU ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND?!

COUNTRY COUNTRY COUNTRY COUNTRY COUNTRY. And don’t you ever mistake folk rock OR western for country. DON’T YOU DARE. *readies unicorn armies just in case*


04. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO LISTEN TO MUSIC? (CD, VINYL, MP3, RADIO, ETC.)

Definitely MP3. Just because all the music I could ever want is on my iPad, and that still amazes me because like TECHNOLOGY??? (idk I’m a 90’s kid so I grew up awed by VHS tapes.) But vinyl is a beautiful creature. I loved how Erin said it once: listening to a vinyl is like burning a candle. It’s more of an experience. It has a different presence. DOES ANYBODY GET ME OUT THERE??


05. TOP THREE FAVORITE BANDS/SINGERS?

THIS IS HARD AALIYAH STOP OKAY JUST STOP. I struggled with this answer so much and I’m going to reiterate what Aaliyah said about not necessarily liking everything by a band/artist but you still really like them?? SO THIS IS HARD. I’m going off of who I love BASICALLY ALLLL the music by. (lololol so plz ignoRE MY SCHIZOID GRAMMAR.) 

01. TWENTY ONE PILOTS
02. SWITCHFOOT
03. BUILT BY TITAN

BUT THERE ARE SO MANY OTHERS OMG. If you care, I’ve been currently shrieking over: NEEDTOBREATHE, Amber Run, Royal Deluxe, J2, The Lumineers, and too many soundtrack composers to name. <3

if you don't love Twenty One Pilots after this gif, idk what ur doing

06. WHAT ARE YOUR THREE FAVORITE CHORDS?

OOOH I LOVE THIS QUESTION. IT’S A HARD ONE. But I’m going to pick: F, Bb, C. Those are actually important chords in a song I wrote like 5 years ago. I’m going to record it and put it on the album, so that’s kind of exciting. *screams quietly into a pillow*


07. (MY QUESTION MUAHAHA) IS THERE ANY INSTRUMENT YOU CANNOT STAND IN A SONG?

For me, it’s saxophone. DON’T ASK ME WHY I JUST HAVE A FIERY HATRED FOR DA SAX. It seriously ruins every song it touches, in my helpful opinion. AHEM.


I THEREFORE TAG:



FLAIL OVER MUSIC WITH ME HOW ABOUT. Do you play any instruments? What are your three favorite bands? Do you have absolutely zero tolerance for country music too? LET’S BE BEST FRENS.

  1. Oh my word!!! Country is like my least favorite too! I don't EVER listen to it.

    TWENTY ØNE PILØTS. TWENTY ØNE PILØTS. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

    Does musicals count, because I have recently come to love Hamilton!!! It has some language, but I love love love it! Oh, I have started to listen to NF. It is so good.

  2. EEEPPPPP I LOVE THIS, ABBIE. <3333

    I (sadly) don't do tags on my blog, because I feel like they don't fit in very well, but I love them so much anyway.

    So, if it's alright, I'm gonna answer the questions here.

    #1: DO YOU PLAY ANY INSTRUMENTS?
    Yes, I actually do! I play piano as my main instrument, and I can do guitar, and ukulele, and I have a glockenspiel which is asdfjslfjsalfkjljlsf SO FUN. (Barely professional-looking and sounding, but still fun.) And I sing. Which...voice is kind of an instrument?

    #2: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC GENRE?
    OH this IS so DIFFICULT. Okay so twenty one pilots should be their own musical genre, because they're fabulous. But I'd probably say...folk/soul/pop with very thoughtful lyrics. If that's a thing. OH ALSO: movie soundtracks and (non-movie) scores.

    #3: IS THERE A MUSIC GENRE YOU ABSOLUTELY CANNOT STAND?!
    I second the motion on country. Sorry, country people.

    #4: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO LISTEN TO MUSIC? (CD, VINYL, MP3, RADIO, ETC.)
    MP3 for the win. It's so much easier AND THE TRACKS CAN'T SKIP OR GET SCRATCHED. Plus, depending on the headphones, it can sound incredible.

    #5: TOP THREE FAVORITE BANDS/SINGERS?
    twenty one pilots.
    JJ Heller.
    Lauren Daigle and Adele and Andra Day and Dara Maclean for their AMAZING VOICES. (Sorry, I cheated...) But they're all sort of similar.

    #6: WHAT ARE YOUR THREE FAVORITE CHORDS?
    Good question...Mine are probably C and F#m and E.

    #7: IS THERE ANY INSTRUMENT YOU CANNOT STAND IN A SONG?
    The kazoo. It's so buzzy and makes my ears explode, when it's paired with nice-sounding instruments. xD

    Thanks for tagging me, friend! <3

    But saxophone dude. I love that thing. I would play it if I had money to buy more instruments.

  14. music.

    I didn't know that I liked it so much until I started driving a lot. Because what's the point of driving without music? (Although now my CD player's broken and my adaptor cord doesn't work with my phone case.) I don't play and only sing for fun, but I have made up a few songs. Awful, cheesey, amature type songs, but I can't help it.

    As for artists, I like the singer/songwriter vibe. Christian music. Acostic. A bit of pop. I have Taylor Swift days (well, most days are Taylor days), American Authors, Ben Rector, Jamie Grace, TobyMac, David Crowder, Ellie Goulding, Ed Sheeran, Sleeping at Last, and musicals.

    Love the post and CAN'T WAIT to hear more of your music!

      OOOH I LOVE SO MANY OF THOSE ARTISTS TOO OMG. <3 TobyMac was basically allll I listened to in my early teens :') I remember driving to skating practice and listening to nothing but Eye On It on repeat.

    Also, Amber Run?! They're the bomb! I love their song "I Found" and was just looking into buying their album. You have radical music taste. (The Lumineers' new record is also KILLER)

  23. YOU ARE SO GREAT AT MUSIC AND I CANNOT WAIT FOR YOUR ALBUM, OHMYWORD.

    You are not a bad piano player, really! You're actually really great. :D I feel the same way, though. I loooove playing piano, and I LIKE to think I'm sometimes good at it, but... all my friends who play piano are like asdfijaldsj much better than me. Ahem. xP

    Oh, you don't like country? I'm fine with it, but I don't love it. Which is a little weird considering that I live like a couple hours away from the home of country music, Nashville. xD

    I... don't like Twenty One Pilots? *hides face* I've tried to, really, I've tried, but... some of their music is okay, but the lead voice... bugs me wrong, somehow? I think it's really GOOD and yet it gets me really ON EDGE in an unpleasant way at the same time. *cringes and hides face again* And I mostly LOVE the lyrics to most of their songs, yet the music simply isn't my style at all. xP

    Favorite singer/band? I don't really listen to any bands. BUT I WANT TO GET INTO SWITCHFOOT. I LIKE SWITCHFOOT. I must purchase whatever alubm/s they have sometime to listen to it more.

    BUT AS FOR SINGERS, LAUREN DAIGLE IS AMAAAAZING. Her lyrics are so simple yet so POWERFUL and I can't. Plus her voice is so expressive and soulful. (kind of like Adele's.) But like yeah, LISTEN TO LAUREN DAIGLE. Eep. o.o Oh no, I feel a fangirl rant coming on.

      Aw, that's okay!! Twenty One Pilots isn't for everyone, so I totally understand that. ;) I WON'T UNLEASH MY UNICORN ARMY...YET. MUAHAHAHA. oH DUDE yes get into Switchfoot. Do it. Their new album just came out and it is absolute GOLLLDDD. My favorite tracks are Holy Water, Shake This Feeling, Healer of Souls and Looking For America. THEY ROCK. Also you should watch their documentary called Fading West because everything about it is flawless. ^.^

      Oooh I think I've heard a few of Lauren Daigle's songs?? Her voice really is beautiful. :) AHHAA NO THIS IS THE FANGIRL SPACE.

  25. oh oh I love this! And I agree about saxophones. Like what is the point of their face???? No. Nopity no. Actually I'm not too fond of brass in general, or flutes. TOO HIGH. Like when they're mixed up with other instruments in an orchestra, I don't mind. But I don't listen to them by themselves. So jazz = no no no for me.😂 I'm probably uncultured swine but I don't even care.

    THE LUMINEERS ARE REALLY AWESOME!!!

    And I'm soorrry, but I can't get into Twenty One Pilots. I keep trying??? But I just...eh. It doesn't mesh with me. The biggest problem is that there's two of them. Where are the the other 19/??? Did they get lost on the way to the band rehearsals? Did they quit? Are the two current Pilots hoping 19 more will come if they're hopeful enough??? I just have so many questions, omg, Abbie.

    Zero tolerance for country. *hi fives*

    okay, omg top 3 bands is REALLY REALLY HARD. I love Fall Out Boy and Sia, like 100%. All their songs omg. And then I just discovered NEEDTOBREATH (their band is literally all caps-words-run-together, so dude, they do need to breath) especially Hard Love and Happiness. Like omg the beat is on point. But I hate the rest of their songs. hhahahahh.😂 #dead OH WAIT. Maybe I'll go Panic! At the Disco for #3 because I relate to them emotionally. I panic everywhere tho. See my dedication? Applaud me.

    OKAY AND INSTRUMENTS. I play piano tooooo. WE ARE TWINS. *hugs you* And I play quite badly hahah. and I haven't played in years. Ahem. No wait, I did try to play last week and decided I would now not play for years. I also play violin and cello, and I've learned the recorder but that's the devil's instrument and we do not speak of it. (My sister plays the flue, and my mum plays viola, and my dad used to play brass....so we're kinda of a musical family😂).

    I LOOOOOVED THE POST AND I'M SORRY FOR THIS COMMENT IT'S LIKE A NOVEL, OMG.

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
