My Interview! And the Friday Five... 10:22 a.m. 2003-04-12 I've been Interviewed! Check it out!
The Friday Five Apr 11, 2003 (One day late!)!
1. What was the first band you saw in concert?!
Oh, gosh, I don't know. I didn't go to see bands, really, until I started dating at age 21. I do remember going to see Barry Manilow freshman year with friends, and Willie Nelson, too. I was going through my "Urban Cowboy" phase...that's the explanation for the second - but Willie rocks. And so does Barry!!
2. Who is your favorite artist/band now?!
Oops! I actually don't listen to a lot of current music. I am more of a talk radio/book on CD person at the moment. I absolutely do not like rap and hip hop, and that seems to be all my students like! I would say that the last recent hit I have appreciated that I can remember at the moment was by Shakira...:-)!
3. What's your favorite song?!
Of all time - that's also tough. But I have to say that "Lack of Water" by The Why Store is one of the best songs ever. I heard it while driving around - I forget the circumstance, but I was distraught about something, and didn't get the name of the band. Then, the morning I was getting ready to meet my future husband for a church date, it came on Organic X. It was a miracle!!!! I got to see them in concert, and have no idea why they weren't more successful. Check our their website link above.!
4. If you could play any instrument, what would it be?!
I always said the guitar, but have tried twice to take lessons and it hasn't taken. I think that I really always just wanted to sing. I did learn how to play the french horn, though.!
5. If you could meet any musical icon (past or present), who would it be and why?!
Madonna - hands down. She's the Mae West of our generation.
