Today's Challenge: Tell what bands/artists you have been listening to and liking lately.
It started with Adele, whom I discovered in Time magazine, not on the radio. They raved about her and I was dying to hear some good music, so I bought the album and fell in love with it. I know it is being played to death on the radio, but every song is a great song on her latest album titled "21."
I've also been enjoying that dance beats have become more mainstream and aren't just for clubbing anymore. This is good because I don't go clubbing anymore. But I love that face-paced synth beat. In this category, I am really enjoying Maroon 5 and Pink (both of which I've loved since their beginning anyway) and Rihanna. I have recently discovered David Guetta, also. Every song on his album "Nothing But the Beat" is really great and you can't help moving when those beats get going.
Also, because I have a pre-teen girl in the house, I have been enjoying listening to One Direction and Justin Bieber. Yes, I said enjoying. Originally, Bieber was just another teenage boy singing love songs, but he is developing into quite the artist. And One Direction has a great sound that makes me feel bouncy (like my 12 year old daughter). Their song "What Makes You Beautiful" is a message that young girls need to hear more often and I like to sing it to my daughter because she doesn't have a clue how beautiful she really is.
What about you? What have you been listening to lately?
