Having been born in 1999 I probably shouldn’t know who that guy is. For those who don’t, shame on you, is Bruce Springsteen. My favourite singer of all time. My music taste is all over the place.

Starting with Springsteen the first song of his I ever listened to was Shackled and Drawn, a gritty observation of the American Dream. At the age of twelve I just listened to the song, not the theme, and fell in love with the powerful beat and lyrics. Since then I’ve listened to, as far as I’m aware, all of his songs. My favourite song of his without a doubt is Waiting on a Sunny Day, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiCxqhu9cio

Along with Springsteen, God bless him, my music taste is considered to be pretty horrendous by my friends. Namely my love of Bryan Adams, I can feel you judging me. Go listen to Summer of 69 (if you giggled at that well done). Come back and tell me how great a song it is, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f06QZCVUHg

This is where my taste becomes slightly more acceptable. George Ezra. I’m sure you’ll have heard of him he’s only in his twenties, unlike the previous two. The dogs and I listen to him a lot. Try Budapest if you haven’t heard of him, and if you know who he is go listen to him all the same, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHrLPs3_1Fs

Coldplay. You know who they are, no point in explaining.

Then these are the people I don’t talk about normally for fear of the judging look. You’ve all undoubtedly seen the look before, you know how it feels. The first of these is Peter Hollens. An incredible singer with an amazing voice. He started out singing on YouTube but now has several albums to his name. The reason I don’t  talk about him is because of the songs he sings, a lot of them are songs taken from Lord of the Rings movies and other such movies and games. Go listen to him here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwtGc-URMr4 (make sure to watch this on your phone).

Another that I don’t talk about in public is the Piano Guys, they do movie songs such as The Last Goodbye from the Hobbit, the Mission Impossible theme and the Jurassic Park theme. Enjoy, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pvci1hwAx8

Thanks for reading, judge me however much you wish.
