The First Song I Remember Hearing

Beastie Boys - Intergalactic
I cannot pinpoint an exact time I heard exactly one song, but I do remember dancing to Intergalactic by the Beastie Boys whenever it would come on. I immediately recognized the first few seconds of the song and would get down, whether it was me in my car seat or me dancing around my house in only my diaper. I knew how to boogie back then.


First/Most Memorable Concert

Riot Fest 2014
My first concert was the Wombats here in Columbus, but my most memorable show was actually a music festival, Riot Fest Chicago in 2014. This year included many amazing acts, the most memorable for me was the Cure, which I’ve listened to all my life. Not only was this my first exposure to music festivals, but also it made me more comfortable with myself, in a weird way. I was able to see bands I wanted to see and also meet people, some I still talk to. I participated in my first few mosh pits, and overall embraced my independance. In a weird way, I felt like I belong at this festival amongst the other people.

Song that reminds you of your teen years

Foals-Olympic Airways
I fell in love with this band during my teens years, and I still love them to this day. This song in particular reminds me of how I wish to go somewhere else, but you’re unable to because you're stuck in one place. I feel like that could be a good summary of my teen years.

The First Song I Fell In Love With

Devo- Whip It
From what I remember, I would always listen to a cassette tape which my mom made, and the only song I remember on it was Whip It by Devo. I would listen to it in the shower all the time, and would rewind the song and listen to it on repeat.

The Song That Reminds You of being in Love

The Cure- Just Like Heaven
I only wish to have someone think of me every time they hear this song.

Favorite Movie Soundtrack/Song

Spirited Away Movie Soundtrack
I grew up watching every Studio Ghibli movie, and the soundtracks to all of these movies are just works of art and very close to my heart.

The First Album I Bought

Jonas Brothers
My first CD I ever bought, or begged my mom to buy, was Jonas Brothers’ self titled album. I really wanted to marry Nick Jonas.

The Band You Would Want to Join

Flogging Molly
It just seems like being in this band would be a lot of fun, and I can play a pretty mean Mandolin.

The Song that makes me cry

Death Cab For Cutie - Summer Skin
Memories of a very bad summer and a very bad breakup.

The Song that makes me instantly smile

Devendra Banhart -Santa Maria de Feira

The Song That Makes Me Dance

Duran Duran - Girls on Film
Or any Duran Duran song really.

My Karaoke Song

B-52’s - Love Shack
I really love the B-52’s. I will always sing along to “Love Shack” no matter where I am.

Song I have on Repeat right now

The Growlers - I’ll Be Around
I cannot stop listening to their new album, especially this song

The Song I Want Played At My Funeral

Frank Turner - Eulogy
Often times I don’t think I will be good enough, and if I die before I do something memorable, at least I can say that I tried.
