Music & Books
Everyone would know that since I'm a book blogger that I always read books, but that isn't always the case, because I actually love listening to music as well.
I've been the kind of person that loves drama in books, I love deep dark stories, and I also
You can say that I'm a diverse reader as I enjoy reading a wide variety of genres -- from dystopian to contemporary to fantasy. And I think that reflects on my music taste too. I mainly listen to indie/alternative rock bands such as Florence + The Machine, The 1975, Coldplay, and the lot. But I also listen to pop music when I'm feeling bored or jumpy. Oh and EDM is a guilty pleasure of mine. Classical music is another favourite. So you can also consider me as a diverse music enthusiast.~ Miguel of The Quirky Reader
When it comes to reading, I'm a sucker for dystopian and post apocalyptic young adult novels. I love a strong, no nonsense heroine, an oppressive government or regime and a revolution brewing, those oppressed finally taking a stand. But when it comes to music, you'd think I'd probably listen to inspiring songs, Eye of The Tiger comes to mind. But no, my taste in music is nothing at all comparable to my favourite book genre. When it comes to music, I'm really laid back. I love Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Wolfmother, The White Stripes, but I love Jeff Buckley. Jeff Buckley drowned in 1997, aged only thirty one. Like any author, he was an artist that brought music to life, telling a story through verses he delivered. The moment I heard Lover, You Should've Come Over (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_eLuk4RjIQ), I was undeniably in love. But my favourite song of all time is without a doubt, Purple Rain by Prince (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LJlx8mMQ88). He's known for being eccentric and just downright strange, but no no can doubt what a huge influence he's had on the music industry. But I love old school tracks from the eighties, from Run DMC and the Beastie Boys, to Jodeci and R Kelly of the Nineties. Growing up in that era, I probably won't stray too far from what I know. But like books, I'm always looking for music recommendations.And that ends our discussion post for today, I know that this is not your average bookish post, but books aren't the only things we enjoy, right?
As long as it isn't a boy band [Just got to say that this made me laugh]
