30 Day Music Challenge
I’ve been thinking about how I promised to deliver fifty bands/artists along with the books and the movies, but I’ve been too busy revisiting my favourite music to discover a lot of new ones. And then I remembered The 30 Day Book Challenge over at Wanton Creation, and I thought I’d do something similar, except by adapting it to music. So, I’ve changed a few things, and rearranged them, and ta-DAA! Here’s my list.
Day 1 : First band/music artist you remember listening to.
[It’s a pain to have to keep typing ‘band/music artist’, so I’m just going to say ‘band’, okay?)
Day 2: A childhood favourite that you still listen to.
Day 3: Favourite genre of music.
Day 4: A band you’d recommend to someone who has never heard anything that falls under your favourite genre.
Day 5: A band you’d recommend to someone with similar tastes in music.
Day 6: An artist you like from a genre you hate.
Day 7: Favourite band from every decade since the fifties.
Day 8: A song/album/band that makes you happy.
Day 9: A song/album/band that makes you sad. Cry, even.
Day 10: Most underrated band.
Day 11: Most overrated band.
Day 12: A band you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving.
Day 13: A band that someone you trusted said you’d love, but you hated.
Day 14: Favourite movie soundtrack/musical.
Day 15: Create a compilation album to serve as the soundtrack for the most recent movie that you watched.
Day 16: Song with the catchiest tune.
Day 17: Favourite song title/band name.
Day 18: Favourite lyrics to a song.
Day 19: Favourite album artwork.
Day 20: Song you can relate to the most.
Day 21: A band you wished more people listened to.
Day 22: Favourite non-vocal band/band that sings in a language you don’t understand.
Day 23: A song you wish was written specifically for you.
Day 24: A band you secretely like, but have never admitted to liking.
Day 25: The band you use as a measure to gauge another person’s music taste.
Day 26: Favourite Classical musician.
Day 27: Favourite musical instrument, and the person playing it.
Day 28: A list of things that make a band/song your favourite. (What you look for in new music)
Day 29: Best band you discovered in the past year, and how you discovered them.
Day 30: Bands that you discovered from other bloggers nice enough to take this challenge/recommendations left for you in the comment section, and which one you liked best.
Well, that’s it! A few things before I sign out.
You have got to check out Wanton Creation. Apart from being responsible for adding several books on my to-read list, this guy is extremely creative with his blog posts – I always look forward to the next one. Plus, he’s got a fantastic taste in music, and I really hope he’ll join in on this challenge!
I’m already looking forward to day 7, 15, 23 and 30. I’m positively dreading 6 and 24. 😛
Let me know if you decide to take this challenge as well, I’d love to check out your favourite bands! One can never have too much new music, I find. 🙂
