Feature & Follow Friday (#12)

Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read-- a chance for bloggers to hop around and discover new things about each other (plus new blogs!).

Question of the Week: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

I'm very eclectic when it comes to music. Bands/artists you must check out if you haven't, even if they don't come out with a song this year:

  • Adele (so young, so soulful)
  • Sara Bareilles (maybe she and Adele could be best friends?)
  • Lady Antebellum (sweet cross-over melodies)
  • Gavin DeGraw (such catchy tunes, even if the hits come once every 4-6 years)
  • Paramore (such angst, such raw emotion)
  • No Doubt (where have you gone, Mrs. Stefani?)
  • Alanis Morisette ('cause she's so ironic!)
  • Taylor Swift (just don't get on her bad side)
  • Any Glee soundtrack (AMAZING!)
  • All Saints (anyone ever heard of these girls?? My idols as a teen!)
  • Phantom of the Opera soundtrack (just saw this on broadway but have always adored the score; Andrew Lloyd Webber's a musical genius)
What music do you like? Maybe there's something I should be listening to that I didn't mention?

You can link up your Twitter and Facebook fan page.

I agree, even if Gavin Degraw releases his music once every blue moon, they always rock<3

Hopping through. I've always been a fan of Phantom too. I haven't seen it in years but it's a classic.

My goodness, Adele sure is popular this weekend! I loved No Doubt! My fave fave CD was Rock Steady--at least I believe that was the name. It had Hey Baby on it!

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!

Love Adele. She has a fantastic voice. Also love Glee soundtracks. Their versions of the songs are almost better than the originals, in some cases they really are. And, I'm also a huge fan of Phantom. I've seen it four times, but I'd love to see it on Broadway someday.
