Living for Music
Even though I am not one of those people who always have to have music on, I think I have a quite broad knowledge of popular music... and good taste too! 🙂
With more than five decades on my account, I have known the music of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and 10s. Music was not usually listened to at home when I was growing up, not particularly. Perhaps that is the reason why it felt more interesting to me. I don't know.
During my adolescence I used to listen to Lou Reed, David Bowie, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Supremes, Pink Floyd, The Doors, AC/DC... What was mainstream music back then, really.
During the 80s I started becoming interested in the music of Prince, although it wasn't until the 90s that I began to REALLY listen to and admire him. I think it must be because there were a couple of friends and work colleagues that also liked him and we fedback to each other on his albums, both old and new. The same happened with U2, one of my favourite bands of all time.
Also during the 90s I was kind of "forced" into Madonna, since one of my best friends (who will be also writing in the blog) was a huge fan of hers. I like most of her albums and admire her for having stayed in the business for such a long time.
Music for all tastes
I also like many Spanish and Latinamerican bands and artists... as well as Queen, The Police, Amy Winehouse, Blondie, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Texas, Nirvana, Alanis Morissette, Abba and disco music in general, Guns 'n Roses, Adele, Leonard Cohen, Diana Ross, Pink, ...
I couldn't really make a list of all the bands, artists and singers that I like, because I like too many! But you get the idea. As you see, my taste in music is quite eclectic and varied.
I don't consider myself a fan of any group or artist. There are a few who I really love listening to, but not to that extent. Others, I admire profoundly for one reason or another, even if I could live without their music forever. Others, I just love their live performances, like Madonna, Prince and U2.
