Sunday Stealing #5

I haven't posted in awhile, I start to post, than I slack off. I ran across this Sunday Stealing and it was about music so I figured it'd be a good post.

Questions from Unusual Music

1. A song that gives you goosebumps.  There's a few but Watch the Lamb by Ray Boltz always does it to me. Almost Home by Craig Morgan is a more recent one that does.

2. A song you hated once but now love.  I can't think of any, there's a bunch that grew on me but I wouldn't say I hated them.

3. Do you remember your first CD?  My first CD would be a bunch of them because I had to replace all the cassettes stolen out of my car. I refused to buy CD's until I had no music to listen to. My first cassette I purchased was Emotions in Motions by Billy Squier.

4. Has your music taste changed much since childhood?  Most definitely. I hated Country, now I listen to it. I used to listen to some pop and rap, now I'm not a big fan. I can tolerate some of it but not most of it.

5. Favorite genre?  Most versions of Rock.

6. What’s a genre or style of music that you just don’t understand?  I listened to most anything so I can't think of a genre that I just can't stand.

7. Do you have a process for listening to music, such as listening to the instruments more than words?  Depends on my mood, some days I just want to jam to some loud music, other days I listen to the lyrics.

8. What’s your favorite thing about your favorite song?  It's a classic Rock song. I really get into certain songs for awhile, but they never seem to last like my favorite does.

9. Do you have a favorite decade for music?  I listen to all decades but if I had to pick a decade it'll probably be the 80's. That genre is probably in the top 3 or 4 on my playlist.

10. Can you play any instruments?  Nope

11. Do you remember your first favorite song?  Not really. I wasn't really "into" music until I was an adult.

12. What was the first concert you ever attended?  Back when I strictly listened to Christian music, I probably went to hundreds of concerts but I have no idea which was my first.

I had a slow week in music because a lot of my listening comes at work and I only "worked" 2 days this week. Monday was Memorial day so I had it off. Tuesday I had a vacation day. Wednesday I worked. Thursday I worked but I was at a conference all day so I couldn't listen to music. Friday I worked but it was a bad day and ended up being half a day and I haven't done much this weekend.
