    Hey :) Just a little something for people to share their favourite tunes.

    I've always been a massive music listener, and I'm normally content with the music I regularly listen to and know, but lately I've found that because I've been listening to it all so much (out of boredom), I've been wanting to find some new artists and styles to dive into. I also have ALOT of art homework to get done, so looking for things to listen to as I work. I'm up for any suggestions, but I'm super into any kind of hard rock, metal or alternative music!

    A few songs I'm really enjoying right now are:

    The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson

    This House - Hazen

    Scream - Breakaway

    Visions - Bring Me The Horizon

    Another Life - Motionless In White

    Feel free to share some of your favourites here, and I hope you're all doing well <3

    This is such a great idea! @lemonb

    Although I'm not quite into rock, I listened to the songs you are currently listening to. I have to say, I do prefer Queen and Evanescence. However, 'This House' by Hazen was nice and I added it to my spotify playlist. 'Scream' by Break Away was good too.

    Wow, yeah, I'm studying pop voice and jazz music theory actually. So, I have a tonne of theory homework to get done too! You'll get through it, I promise!

    Ok, so some pop/rnb artists and pop songs I thought you might like or for anyone who likes alternate/rock/metal:

    -Jessie Reyez 'Shutter Island'

    - Airspoken (a trio and one of the dude's is rock singer who screams and everything) 'Pain' --> an original i think

    - Ariana Grande 'Only 1'

    Songs I've been listening to:

    - Ariana G 'NASA'

    - Frank Sinatra 'That's Life', 'Fly Me to the Moon',

    - JoJo 'Little Too Late', 'High Heels' (whole album)

    - Lolo 'Ride' (basically her whole Album 'High Highs to Low Lows')

    -Black Pink/Dua Lipa - 'Kiss and Make Up'

    - Celine Dion 'Taking Chances'

    - Demi Lovato 'Lionheart'

    Just wanted to share some more music! For me, music makes life a lot better. <3

    Hope you're all staying safe.

    xx

    Hi lemonyb!

    Great thread idea!

    My taste is pretty open and eclectic but I predominantly listen to tribal beats, techno, jazz, funk and soul.

    Some of my favorite artists include...

    Fat Freddy's Drop (amazing soul/jazz/rhythm/blues all-rounder), Porangui (incredible tribal beats that will take you on a journey), DAVI (tech house), Metodi Hristov (techno), Bon Iver (indie folk), Christian Smith (techno), Air (downtempo electronica), Nightmares On Wax (triphop), Stavroz (dance/elctronic), Richie Hawtin (techno), Bonobo (downtempo electronica) and Be Svendsen (journey beats).

    Hope you all enjoy!

    Nico

    Hi Sunnysideup

    I'd have to agree that music really does make life a whole lot better! :)

    I had a listen to the songs you mentioned and I particularly liked Airspoken's music in general and Demi Lovato's Lionheart. The rest wasn't really for me but I enjoyed exploring new genres and I hope other people that see your post have a listen to them themselves!

    Hey Nico B!

    I've honestly never heard of any of those artists, and I've never really listened to much of any of those genres myself, but they all sound interesting and I'll be sure to give them a listen while I complete some work tomorrow :)

    Awesome lemonyb!

    To get a bit more specific I'd recommend these albums to try out...

    - Fat Freddy's Drop (Blackbird / Dr Boondigga And The Big BW / Based On A True Story)

    - Porangui (Porangui - self titled album / Porangui Remixes Vol II - if you want something more upbeat)

    - Air (Moon Safari)

    - Nightmares On Wax (N.O.W. Is The Time)

    - Bonobo (The North Borders / Black Sands)

    Should be some pleasant listening!

    There's a novel by Franz Kafka, named Die Verwandlung (The Metamorphosis). There's a song about the novel's protagonist, Gregor, which I like. It's in German, and not easy on the ears if you're not used to "Symphonic metal". It's one of my favorites, mainly due to its lyrics... Name of the song is Samsa's Traum (Samsa's dream)

    Hi lemonyb

    I hadn't heard Beautiful People before until I saw it covered on The Voice last year by Lee Harding (he sings Wasabi). Great singer. So I looked at Marilyns on YouTube. Great song. I now play it on my drums.

    Going to YouTube the other songs you mentioned here.

    Would love to hear from you of any other music suggestions.

    I love music and it keeps my mental health in check.

    I don't know how old you are but do you like a band called "Live". One of my fav bands. Couple of suggestions are " Simple Creed", "White Discussion" and "Lakinis Juice" and" Rattlesnakes".

    Thanks

    Tayla... if you get to read this ... the music I will listen to generally reflects my mood. I know many people find metal to be noise etc. but I find it to be calming for myself and would regard it as a self-care thing. The lyrics in many of the songs tell me I am not alone, thereby reducing the stress I feel. I have been listening since the 1980s. Back then it was Ozzy, Maiden etc. These days (genre wise) it is melodeath, doom, tech/death or the more extreme stuff. What do you like about metal?
