The Music Tag
I figured I really must do that tag because I have now been tagged for it twice, once by Jessica and once by Bonnie, thanks both of you. I am not a highly musical person but hopefully my answers will be of some interest.
Anyway, the rules of the tag:
1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. Answer the questions.
3. Tag others.
4. Add you own question to the tag for your nominees to answer.
5. Include the rules in your post.
Now, the questions:
Do you play any instruments?
Yes, it is called the Camera, and sounds like "Click" goes the shutter "Click, click, click," "hey every-one, look this way, quick" Which I hope you managed to sing to the tune of Click Go the Shears. If not go back and sing it again, if you don't know the tune, WHAT YOU HAVE GOT TO BE AMERICAN or at least not a true Aussie, so go look it up.
What is your favourite music genre?
As afore mentioned I don't count myself very knowledgeable about music, but I like worship music, hymns, and sound tracks, and though I don't listen to it much every time I do I like Christian rap, and of course good old Aussie songs that my parents knew when they were little, or other Aussie classics.
Is there a music genre you absolutely cannot stand?
Contemporary mainstream anything, the lyrics.... just no.. do people even pay attention to what they are singing?
What is your favourite way to listen to music? (CD, vinyl, MP3, radio, etc)
I am not fussed on this one, but I really enjoy taking my sister to Band occasionally and listening to the town band practicing, though it can sometimes get overly loud in that closed room! But I also like to put music on on the computer and dance with my little sister, who is two (as long as no one else is watching). Otherwise I listen to it on my tablet usually with headphones so as not to disturb anyone.
What/who are your three favourite bands/singers?
Bel Thomson, she has such beautiful music and songs for personal worship. Our family also listens to a lot of Colin Buchanan. And since you mentioned bands, then I guess I am allowed to say the local Town Band, that my sister Jane is part of.
Now for the extra questions:
Jessica's question: What do you think is the purpose of music?
I think it should be for our enjoyment and to give glory to God with. I think it can also teach us things, because of how it connects with our soul at a deeper level, and sticks around in our minds, which is why lyrics are so important.
Bonnie's question: What is one piece of music / song that has gotten you through a really tough time?
I don't know that I would ever say I had an overly long tough time in my life, but there are days, and on those days I find myself having to sing things like Matt Redman's 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) or Bel Thomson's Bird's Eye View.
And as for those I shall bestow this tag upon, they shall be my lovely musical sister Jane and my musical friend Sarah.
And your extra question is: Do you have a funny story to do with playing music or band, if so please share it?
