Cyndi Lauper, Blondie, Heart, The Cranberries, the list of bands/artists I like could go on and on. I enjoy music. Music is a form of art -- it could even be considered poetry (to music) in many cases. It can be fun and happy or beautiful and full of meaning. Today's challenge is to post a picture of your favorite band/artist.
Here is mine:
While I was still in college I learned that she was going to be performing in a town nearby. I asked Jacob if he would go with me to see her. I had NEVER seen her in concert and wanted to SO badly. I didn't know if Jacob would go for it because, well, let's face it, her music doesn't sound like Megadeth, Judas Priest, or Iron Maiden. He proved what a great guy he is by agreeing to take me to see her in concert. We went and I remember thinking how perfect it was. I remember the next time we saw Jacob's mother she asked how the concert went. I, very excitedly, said, "It was perfect. Her dress was perfect, the music was perfect, she sounded perfect!" She laughed. She wasn't laughing at me (or maybe she was and I just didn't care), but I'm sure I seemed like a 12-year-old who had just been asked on stage by Joey of NKOTB or something. Ha. Honestly, though, while Jacob and I sat in the concert and I listened to her sing and play her piano I DO remember thinking, "this is perfect." It was one of my favorite trips with Jacob and I'm so glad he agreed to go with me.
Some of my favorite Tori Amos songs are:
"A Sorta Fairytale"
(This is only a few!)
I have a great deal of respect for Tori Amos and her music -- she continues to be my all-time favorite artist.
