AAF 16 Shelly

1. What is your favorite movie soundtrack?

I really don’t think that I can pick just one…so for this one I am going to have to go with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Hair!

2. It’s a rainy day and all you want to do is read, who’s playing?

So that I can concentrate on the book, I will normally have on some type of classical. I generally like to listen to a baroque or renessaince style.

3. Who was your most recent concert and your first concert?

My most recent concert was Rick Springfield, which was an amazing show! My first concert was Gun’s N Roses, UDO, and Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction back in about 1989.

4. Are you musically inclined? If not, what do you wish you had time to learn?

I learned to play the clarinet in grade school band, but I wish I would have learned to play the piano or drums.

5. Who would your kids want to go see in concert?

Lil miss wants to see some Japanese group called Baby Metal.

D-man would love to see Evanescence.

Lil man is not as in to music as the other two, but he likes to listen to Dubstep, and I am not really sure what kind of concert that would be except for maybe Skrillex…

6. Who would you pay anything to see in a small venue (100 people)?

Again, I have to pick two…one would be Celtic Thunder and the other would be Blackmore’s Knight.

7. What song could you wake up to every morning?

Anastasia by Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators

8. What artist/musician do you think you could hang out with after the concert and feel like yourself?

Rick Springfield, definitely.

9. What is one band that you listen to that you think no one else does, but totally should?

This one is called End of Me featuring Gavin Rossdale from Bush on vocals.

10. what’s the last band you listened to on Pandora (or any other streaming device)?

The last radio station that I listened to on iTunes was a Baroque classical and the last one that I listened to on Pandora was Celtic Thunder…can you tell that my music mood changes often! LOL!

Bonus: Answer one question you asked me!
I have several songs that I listen to that most people would crack up at. What song do you secretly love, that other’s might laugh at?

Well, here are couple of fun ones that are on my iTunes play list…

The Monkees – Daydream Believer

David Cassidy – I Think I Love You
