I thought I'd share some of my favourite music with you, 'cause I just know you are busting for me to share it!
I have to say right here that I am a huge music fan, always have been. And I love all different types of music too.....except jazz. Particularly trad jazz. Nay, nay and thrice nay. I once had a boyfriend who loved it and every Thursday we would go to a old style pub, with trad jazz musicians playing to nodding fans in a smoke filled room. My only excuse for this aberration of taste was that I was young and in love but those long Thursday evenings probably secured my dislike of trad jazz, and I avoid it now at all costs.
But as I say, I have quite an eclectic musical taste ranging from rock to blues, to soul and pop, some classical stuff and everything in between, plus a whole load of other music which is hard to classify.
One of my current favourites is John Mayer, and for anyone who hasn't heard of him (and I don't think he's as well known here in the UK as he is in America) he is a brilliant rock musician. For anyone who has heard of him you may know him because of his succession of famous girlfriends (Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz and his current on-off girlfriend Jennifer Aniston). But rest assured despite his high profile love life he is a serious and seriously good musician. I first got to know his music when my brother gave me one of his early CDs. Since then I have followed his career and then last year I went to see him play live in Manchester. Let me tell you first of all that he is amazingly good live, and not only that but he's not bad to look at either! I thought I'd share one of my favourite tracks of his, Daughters. I just love the lyrics to this.
