Questioning My Taste in Music, Are You?

This Sunday music meme is courtesy of Sunday Stealing by Kwisgiver. 

  1. Which bands/artists do you own the most albums by? In my move here recently, I came across my box of old albums. So cool. Flipping through, I have the most albums by The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, and Genesis.
  2. What was the last song you listened to? These Are Days by 10,000 Maniac.
  3. What’s in your CD player right now? Nothing. We usually hook up my husband’s phone to the stereo system. He has the best playlists of anyone I know!
  4. What was the last show you attended? Spoon at The Chicago Theater. A few weeks before that, I saw Natalie Merchant at the same venue.
  5. What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to? Probably the first concert I ever attended. Probably because it was my first and it was HUGE. The Rolling Stones at Solider Field in 1978. Journey was one of the four opening acts of this all day affair.
  6. What’s the worst show you’ve ever been to? I was really looking forward to seeing Prince at the United Center a few years ago. It was horrible! So unfortunate because I am a huge fan.
  7. What’s the most musically involved you’ve ever been? I’m not sure I understand this question. You mean like karaoke? 
  8. What show are you looking forward to? I am looking forward to seeing Nick Walenda walk a tightrope across the Chicago River without a safety harness tomorrow night. As far as concerts, I would love to see Bob Seger who is playing locally in December and I have added this to my pre-Christmas list.
  9. What is you favorite band shirt? For my fiftieth birthday, my girlfriends gave me a custom bikini made out of a vintage Stones tee shirt. You know, the one with the big red tongue. The had the artist put the tongue on the butt cheeks instead of the front. I have only worn it a few times under private circumstances. I’ll see if I can find it and post a picture (not on!).
  10. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day? Off the top of my head, Keith Richards.
  11. Who is one musician or group you wish would make a comeback? Ummmmm…I’ll get back to you.
  12. Who is one band/artist you’ve never seen live but always wanted to? John Lennon.
  13. What was your last musical “phase” before you wisened up? I like what I like so I would never wisen up.
  14. How many music related videos/DVDs do you own? I can count them on one hand.
  15. How many concerts/shows have you been to, total? I don’t have enough fingers or toes to count them all. I have been fortunate to live in a city where tours constantly come through.
  16. What’s your “guilty pleasure” that you hate to admit to liking? I don’t hate to admit it, but my “guilty pleasure” is definitely Kid Rock. So naughty! So good! So fun!!!
  17. What is your favorite movie soundtrack? I liked the quiet soundtrack of one of my all time favorite movies, The Way We Were. I also liked the one from Remember the Titans. I could probably come up with more if I had the time.

I like Natalie Merchant, she does some great songs. And that first concert sounds like a terrific show. I can't even imagine it.

I'm so far from civilization that concerts are a major event. I wish I lived closer to the action.

I love Natalie. Always have!!! I can't even begin to tell you what, as a 16 year old, what I learned from my first concert experience particularly BECAUSE it was The Rolling Stones (and an all day affair)!!!

Sometimes I crave living far from civilization. Other times, I want to be in the thick of things. Maybe that's why I hide inside sometimes. Both have their pluses and minuses!!!
