My Favorite Music/Band

I struggle with identifying my favorite band.  I have liked a large variety of music for different reasons throughout my life.  The first music I remember listening to was Queen.  My father played “We Will Rock You” while I rocked on my rocking horse when I was only three years old.  I loved the beat of the music while I whipped back and forth on that rocking horse.  It felt so freeing – almost like I was flying!

When I was eight or nine years old I remember my twin uncles playing “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard, which has become an iconic song.  I loved that song.  It had that awesome rock feeling that made you want to wear ripped jeans, red bandanas, and use a lot of hairspray!  Hearing it now brings me back to that feeling of anything goes.

When I began to discover my own types of music I first enjoyed the New Kids on the Block.  They were my first band I loved.  I had posters, big pins, all the tapes, books, pajamas – yes, I was a “blockhead.”  I still enjoy the music of NKOTB on my ipod, and when I listen to it I am reminded of the power of my decisions.  I made the decision to like NKTOB, and it was the first major decision in my life.  I was committed as a fan.  I now  realize that not all decisions are good decisions;)  I send a huge apology to my mom and dad for having to listen to the New Kids on the Block for hours on end.  You have more patience than I do.

As I grew through adolescence I enjoyed a variety of music.  I liked, and still like country music, rap, R & B, rock and hip-hop.  My ipod consists of so many different types of music.  I am the queen of impromptu dance parties and spoon (or hairbrush) microphones.  Whenever I play music I feel empowered, free, and energized!  Various songs bring back memories from the past years of my life; some good, some bad and some painful, but no matter what the song I have the chance to be lost in a daydream for just a few minutes, and take a break from real life.
