I love music! I think even before I discovered how much of a book nerd I am, I was hands-down a music geek. I listen to a wide variety of genres and when I was a kid I was a big fan of Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and all those big divas out there. Now, I think I have developed a huge taste in music, ranging from classic to pop.
As of now my music montage are composed of the following artists:
1) All Time Low
A band that I discovered through my friends and I would be forever thankful for them. Their music is incredible and I genuinely think that the band members are more than bandmates, they're brothers related through music.
2) Christina Aguilera
A powerful singer and has an attitude to boot. I've been in love with Aguilera's singing style and prowess ever since I was young. Her Stripped album is one of my most beloved album of all time.
3) Christina Perri
She was a recent favorite artist of mine. Her songs are definitely different and very heartfelt. My favorites are A Thousand Years, Blue Bird, The Lonely and Jar of Hearts.
4) Carrie Underwood
Country music is my new found love. And that's all thanks to Carrie Underwood. Her albums Some Hearts and Carnival Ride are one of the most played albums in playlist.
5) Jason Mraz
His voice is soothing and his music can be catchy or really emotional. Everytime I listen to him, I am in my most relaxed mood. Have you listen to I Won't Give Up? Come on give it a go. It's a beautiful song!
6) John Mayer
This very talented singer/guitarist gives me the chill whenever I listen to him. From Your Body Is a Wonderland to Slow Dancing In a Burning Room, his passion for music really shines through.
Adele is one of a kind. Her songs both sad portraying heartbreak and betrayal and sassy saying she can move on and you're gonna be sorry. I think I raped the repeat button for about a week before I had my fill. My favorites: Chasing Pavement, Someone Like You and I Found A Boy.
8) Jessie J
Jessie J is for me one of the most versatile singers out there. With her strong, powerful voice and great song compositions, her album, Who You Are is such a treat.
9) Demi Lovato
Her new album, Unbroken is I think her best album yet. Despite the difficulties she went through last year she was able to deliver a great album. From her moving rendition of Skyscraper to her upbeat songs, All Night Long and Who's That Boy, it showcased how much she has grown as a singer but not altogether forgetting that she's young and is more than allowed to have some silly fun.
10) The Script
One of my favorite bands ever. Their songs Nothing, The Man That Can't Be Moved, For The First Time and many more are just incredible. I could listen to them all day and would still ask for more.
11) David Cook
I've never cheered so much on any contestant since David Cook's time on the American Idol stage. He is a talented singer and his song covers are risky but very well done and can be called his own. Who would forget, his cover of Carey's Always Be My Baby? Totally changed the song! Every time I hear that today, I now immediately think of him.
12) Glee (cover songs and originals)
Their covers are always different and fun. They are a very talented bunch of outcast kids and when I listen to them I always feel as if I'm part of their fun group.
So based on the above, I could really say I'm into mainstream music as of this moment. Come listen to them and I'd surely vouch that their songs are amazing. Any recommendations are greatly welcome because I believe my love for discovering new things to love does not end in books but also include music.
