When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station
would play right now? Lately, 97.5-FM has been playing a nice mix of tunes that bring out the car dancer in me, and 98.7-FM has been featuring lots of 80's! Rad.
What's the first album you bought? My very first tape was Duran Duran, Seven and The Ragged Tigeris, given to me by my cousin. I can't remember the first tape I actually bought; it must not have been the best choice! Ha!
What's the first concert you saw? Depeche Mode Songs of Faith and Devotion Tour. I was an underclassman in high school, and we had lawn seats at Desert Sky Pavilion (now Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion). The view wasn't the best, but I have been an even more devoted DM fan since that experience!
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Without a doubt, my most recent and favorite concert was Muse, The Resistance Tour. The sets were incredible, but the music was absolutely brilliant! They are even better live! Amazing performance.
What's the last song played on your music player? Timbaland, "Board Meeting".
Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? I have a fondness for vinyl because I grew up listening to my parents' record collection; however, digital is where it is at for me in the present.
Who is your favorite singer or band? That is so difficult because my taste is all over the map. Can I give you top five as of right now? In no specific order: Michael Jackson, NIN (Nine Inch Nails), The Black Keys, Muse, Justin Timberlake.
Does you computer track how many times you've played something -- if so,
what's at the top of the list? I don't believe my computer was that fancy. Currently, I'm working on replacing my stolen one. It was probably a Zumba song that I was figuring out choreography for to use in class.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from 2010? This is an album by The Black Keys. The name of this album is Brothers.
What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? Hmmm. Journey, "Don't Stop Believin'". If that song can get a whole bar and club belting out the lyrics, imagine the whole world?!
What is your favorite music video? All-time favorite: Michael Jackson's "Thriller" . Most recent obsession: Dr. Dre feat. Eminen and Skylar Grey, "I Need a Doctor". Dre came back with a vengeance, muscles blazing!
