Shall we talk about something else than my travel plans for a change? There’s nothing much to report about my life at the moment. Sure, summer has arrived to Finland. And we hosted the Ice Hockey World Championship games. And Eurovision Song Contest is on tv. Oh, and I’m trying hard to finish my masters thesis.. hopefully only few more weeks and it’s d.o.n.e!
Since nothing exciting is happening ;) lets talk about MUSIC. It’s my love. My life.
You can’t really say that I like a specific genre of music. But if I had to put it in one sentence I would say “melodic/orchestral rock/metal”. But you see, I simply don’t have one specific genre of music that I like – I like them all. Well, most of them. And some of them I’ve grown to love (like dubstep, ahem, that took awhile).
I think my latest “favorited” videos of YouTube give you a pretty good idea of how.. wide my music taste can be.
Avenged Sevenfold – Welcome to The Family (My latest find. Just like Dream Theater! Love the whole album)
Orealia has Orchestra – Suggestions (Pretty Little Liars has the best music!)
Keane – Hamburg Song (I’ve grown to love Keane)
OK ONE ROCK – Liar (I’ve grown out of the “visual-kei” phase and begun to like Japanese rock bands)
Max Jason Mai – Don’t Close Your Eyes (Slovakia’s Eurovision song contest entry, sweet voice!)
Greg Laswell – This Woman’s Work (I like this version so much more than Kate Bush’s orginal)
Other than listening to music I also love going to concerts and smaller gigs. I haven’t seen too many bands this year, so far: Negative, Dream Theater, Nightwish. Coming up are Metallica (Sonisphere Festival) and perhaps one other music festival during this summer. Christina Perri is coming to Finland too, but I’m not sure about that. I’ve watched some videos on YouTube and she doesn’t seem to be good at live shows. She has a finnish bass player though :P
What genre of music is your favorite?
Do you know any “weird” music genre that I should get to know? (like “ska” music or..)
