I was Interviewed at SOS Aloha!

I was interviewed at Sos Aloha. Come by and chat with me and while you're there take a look around Kim's blog. She has something interesting to chat about everyday.


I listen to music all day while I'm on the computer writing, reading facebook, blogging or whatever I happen to be doing. I listen to all sorts of music as you can see below. I use music to fuel my writing when writing articles and get me going. I think a lot of people do. Sometimes I use music to down out the other people around me. Living in a small apartment with two other people, I need my space and quiet time to myself and this is how I get it.

I routinely look at youtube for new music and even browse the top 20 on MYV to see what's new. Some mornings I will stop on the music channels on my cable *Not the NTV or VH1* because they hardly ever play music anymore and that's a real shame. No, I mean the 100 extra channels of music I have on digital cable..all music all the time and they have different channels for different genres of music, which I love. I still love the 80's.

Lately I've been listening to Visions of Atlantis which I describe as Symphonic Power Metal.

I also think of Sirenia as Symphonic Power Metal.

Hollywood Undead I consider to be Rock Rap..I don't know what others consider their music to be but I really like them too.

Dead by April is a band that my daughter actually showed me because she thought I might like them and she was so right. I love this song and yes while there is a little bit of screaming which I normally don't like...I love this song.

And then we come to yet another guilty pleasure of mine...Adam Lambert! Omg those eyes!I'm not ashamed to admit it...I wiggle-dance in my chair whenever his songs play. He gives me goose bumps everytime I hear him sing.

And then we have the Sick Puppies. Yeah the name of the band was a bit strange to me too...until I heard them sing. This song is one of their best.

One of my all time favorite bands is Disturbed. I've loved just about everything they've done. I love the lead singers voice and the beat of the music and when I need a swift kick in the pants to get me started...I listen to this.

And now I want to share someone I found on Youtube who doesn't yet have a record deal...and I ask you why? Why doesn't this guy have a record deal because he has a beautiful voice..and I do mean beautiful..Here he plays the piano and sings and he does both so well..Please listen to this guy.

So there you have it. A little sample of the different types of music I listen to all day while online. What are some of your favorite bands?
