Love Your Music Taste

Embrace What Make You UniqueHello!

Music is such a huge part of my life, I can't participate in it (apart from a little shower singing) but I
listen to it constantly. It's amazing to hear someone's thoughts and stories set to a melody and given another layer of meaning, well that and the fact that it's really fun to dance to! I have a pretty wide taste in music, I'll be sharing my absolute favourite music, further down in the post if you want to scroll down a tad.

Not the most important of issues, I know, but it's interesting to me nonetheless!

I'm proud of my music taste, like my food preferences and my favourite films, I don't see why people make it their business to police what is "cool" or not. Who even cares if I like listening to K-Pop or Swedish Death Metal? Please never tell anyone that their favourite band is "cringey", listen to what you want to listen to. Take recommendations and discuss music with your friends but never let anyone guilt you about it. I don't understand why some music is classed as a guilty pleasure, I'm sure the artists didn't want that when they wrote it.

I'm not going to lie, this was kind of prompted by a certain Kanye West at the VMAs. He started to talk about why he didn't understand why there was a need for award ceremonies in music, right before he announced he was running for president! It makes a lot of sense, why do we make the arts competitive at all? Maybe it encourages people to improve their work but really, as Kanye said, it makes people into losers. Don't get me wrong, I love award shows but they are such a weird way of celebrating the industry.

Phew, now that's out the way, here's my current and all time favourite artists. These awesome people constitute my unique music taste as of September 2015.

5 Seconds Of Summer 
My friends and I went to their concert in June and had the time of our lives, we absolutely love them! Their sound is inspired by bands such as Green Day and All Time Low but is also pop enough to be in the Top 40. I'm really excited for their new album, Sounds Good Feels Good, to
Favourite Song: Jet Black Heart

Taylor Swift
You probably already know my feelings on Miss Swift, she is incredible, beautiful and a brilliant songwriter. I saw her in June and it was one of the best nights of my life. She's so lovely and her songs are all masterpieces. I love her a lot and it makes me so happy to see her taking over the world.
Favourite Songs: Enchanted, Wildest Dreams and Long Live

One Direction
1D are great. They've improved so much since their X Factor days and Harry Styles's voice is beautiful. The songs are really catchy, perfect for dance parties in your pyjamas!
Favourite Songs: Girl Almighty and Drag Me Down

Little Mix
I saw Little Mix last year but their new stuff is what I really love about them.  I'm so proud of the girls,
Favourite Songs: Hair and Black Magic

Musical Theatre (in particular Kinky Boots)
I've loved musical theatre since I was really young, it's a huge part of me. I go through phases of being in love with different soundtracks and recently I was lucky enough to get to see Kinky Boots with Killian Donnelly in it (my inner Les Mis fangirl is screaming right now!) So basically now I am in love with the whole musical and would very much like a pair of those boots if anyone wanted to send me some?
Favourite Songs: Soul of a Man (Killian's performance was incredible), The History of Wrong Guys and Land of Lola.

My Chemical Romance
I don't really know what to say about this but I just really like them!
Favourite Song: Na Na Na

Panic! at the Disco
Brendon Urie's voice is everything and the songs are really catchy and clever. I'm looking forward to some new stuff from them soon.
Favourite Songs: Hallelujah and This Is Gospel

Other notable faves include Lorde, Halsey, Haim and Hey Violet.
So please don't feel embarrassed about what make you happy, it makes you unique!

Who are your favourite artists? Do we share any of them?

Have a wonderful week!
