I have, according to my kids committed a cardinal sin!
Let me explain.
I have a pretty eclectic taste in music, I always have.
My first single was the theme music to my favourite TV show, Black Beauty!
It still gives me chills. It’s a beautiful piece of music.
My first album was given to me by my Aunty Kim and was the Bay City Rollers.
As a Teen it was Adam and the Ants and Duran Duran.
There were other interests thrown around like INXS and David Bowie, The Who.
I collected movie albums with regular trips to Tower Records in London when I was earning my own money.
With lots of family gatherings, I got to love all the golden oldies of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s
However, rock has always been my thing.
I went through years of sticking with what I know and love and then recently I started to catch the odd song on the radio or that My eldest daughter was listening to and I became intrigued. Songs from movies are now really important.
Daft Punk, Simon and Garfunkel, Coldplay, Adele.
There have been a few songs that I’ve fallen in love with like ‘House of Gold’ by Twenty One Pilots. Bit of a strange video.
‘Take Me to Church’ by Hozier. Bit of a disturbing video!!
But what has taken me completely by surprise over the last few weeks is how much I have fallen in love with Panic at the Disco!!
It’s not just the odd song either.Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die and Death of a Bachelor are two of the greatest albums I ever listened too!
It could have something to do with the fact that Brendon Urie is one of the most amazing singers I’ve ever heard. His range is amazing. A modern day crooner.
It was very hard to just post 4 video links here. I could have gone on and on and on.
If I were a teenager, I think that Panic at the Disco would be my band of choice.
However, back to the cardinal sin of the title.
I like to create CD’s to play in my car and completely rock out to.
Like I said earlier in the post, I have eclectic tastes. It really doesn’t bother me what kind of a mix I put together as long as I like the songs and I can sing along.
I was in the car with one of my daughter’s earlier rocking out to Panic at the Disco and Twenty One Pilots and then a song came on that my daughter took complete offence to.
What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction.
I’m not a One Direction fan but I LOVE this track!!
Apparantly having it on the same CD as Panic at the Disco and Twenty One Pilots is an absolute NO NO!! She freaked!
I still don’t know where I went wrong.
I only put together a CD I enjoy.
