The First Song I Remember Hearing

The first song I remember hearing is feel good inc. by gorillaz. My parents got me Now that’s What I call music for my birthday and I skimmed through the music until I reached this Gorrilaz song and from there I would play the song on repeat for hours on end.

First Concert

My first concert was twenty one pilots at the LC pavilion in 2011 where I went with four of my really close friends. They were all really big twenty one pilots’ fans and I had never listened to them but the concert was cheap and sounded fun so I went and probably had one of the best first concert experiences a person could have.

Most Memorable Concert

My most memorable concert was either tame impala in May of 2015 at The LC or m83 at Bonaroo 2016. For Tame impala I had only ever heard one of their songs but the concert was cheap so I figured why not. I ended up seeing possibly one of the greatest live performances of my life; the band played incredibly and is significantly better live and I was absolutely mesmerized by their visuals. The other audience members were also some of the nicest people I have ever been to a concert with. Meanwhile, M83 at bonaroo was easily the best performance of the first music festival I had ever attended and so it will always hold a special place in my heart. The band’s amazing performance gave me a whole new level of appreciation for all of their old albums as well as completely changed my opinion about the newest album, “Junk”.

Song that reminds you of your teen years

Helena Beat by Foster the People is my go to song that reminds me of my teenage years the most. When I hear this song all I can ever think about is all of the cross country meets they would play the song at which would always remind me of the amazing memories I created while running cross country and the fondness I will always have towards it. The song also reminds me of a fall weekend my freshmen year where my friend and I decided to build a t-shirt cannon and as we built we listened to the entirety of “Torches” on repeat.

The First Song I Fell In Love With

Houdini by Foster the People was the first song I really fell in love with. After that weekend of listening to Foster the People’s first album I could not stop listening to Houdini. I would listen to it while in class, on the bus ride home, and before I went to be. Essentially any chance I had to listen to music my freshmen year of high school my go to was always Houdini.

The Song That Reminds You of being in Love

Ruby by Foster the People is the song that most reminds me of being in love.

Favorite Movie Soundtrack/Song

My favorite movie soundtracks are from “the secret life of Walter Mitty”, “Dazed and Confused”, and “Guardians of The Galaxy”. My favorite song specifically from a movie is “Groot Spores” by Tyler Bates. Each of these movies is a favorite of mine for a different reason. I love “Dazed and Confused” because it just has the ultimate good time party soundtrack that just makes you want to throw your own massive kegger in the woods. Meanwhile, “Secret Life of Walter Mitty” has a very somber tone that I connect to. The soundtrack, to me, really captures the struggles of Walter’s life brought about by his fear to take chances which I can relate to very much. Then I love the Guardians soundtrack just because it has epic scores behind the entire movie and their choice of music is just so fun and every sing just makes me want to dance.

The First Album I Bought

The first album I bought was either “infinity on high” by fall out boy, or “It won’t be soon before Long” by Maroon 5. The first album I was ever given was “Hot Fuzz” by the Killers. I remember Hot Fuzz was meant to be shared between me and my sister but we would constantly steal it from one another and see which of us could hold on to it the longest. In the end I was the one to finally keep the CD and still have it to this day.


The Band You Would Want to Join

I would either want to join Foster the People or Tame Impala

The Song that makes me cry

One of the only times I have ever cried from music was listening to “America” by Simon and Garfunkel and “Somewhere only we know” by Keane as well as “Sea of Dreams” by Oberhofer

The Song that makes me instantly smile

I will instantly smile any time I hear “I Ran” by Flock of Seagulls, “The boys are back in town” by Thin Lizzy, “Rock the Casbah” by the Clash, “Escape (the Pina Colada Song)” by Rupert Holmes and “Take it Easy” by The Eagles

The Song That Makes Me Dance

I will always start dancing any time I hear “Mo money mo problems” by Biggie smalls, Sean Combs and Mase and if I hear “Around the world” by Daft Punk or “Come and Get your love” by Redbone. These are all just great songs that have the type of sound that really just make me want to move and dance without caring how I look to anyone else.

My Karaoke Song

My go to karaoke song will either be “The middle” by Jimmy Eat World, “Jumper” by Third eye blind, “Girls just want to have fun” by Cyndi Lauper, or “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers. These are all great songs that are fairly well known so I know my audience will always be ready to join in and rock that karaoke out!


Song I have on Repeat right now

I’ve currently been listening to “Valerie- version revisited” by Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson and “Until we Get there” by Lucius. I listen to Valerie any time I feel like getting in to an upbeat mood before class and when I’m riding my bike in to campus for the day from my house. Meanwhile, “Until We Get There” is a song that has me contemplate my thoughts and situation at the moment, letting me really analyze what is going on in my life at the time and whether I am really happy with the decisions I’ve been making.

The Song I Want Played At My Funeral

If I were to die today I would want “For the Kids” by M83, “Lover’s Carving” by Bibio, and “Sea of Dreams” by Oberhofer to be played at my funeral. For me I feel these songs would express the exact feelings I want conveyed at my funeral; “For the Kids” would create a somber and a nostalgic feeling for those attending in that they remember all their fond memories of me. “Lover’s Carving” would be a much needed relaxation point to put people’s minds at rest over my death and then, “Sea of Dreams” would stand to remind those attending to be happy in the fact that I may be dead but that also means I’m at peace.

One performace you Wished You would have seen

If I could have seen any live performance the one song I would want to see performed live most is “Fame” by David Bowie and “I would die 4 U” or “Purple Rain” by Prince. I would have wanted to see Bowie’s dominating stage presence perform one of his coolest songs and to be able to just vibe out in the crab. Meanwhile, the power behind these Prince songs is intense as it is without even seeing them live so I imagine seeing him perform was a life altering experience.
