For the first time, I have a request on what to blog on today's post.

As you can see, there is a LOT of genres there, and to be honest, that isn't all of them. There are soo many that I couldn't even be bothered typing them; most of the genres I have never even heard of! I never realised there were so many whhhaaa! This is educating me, I hope it has educated you as well.

(I used wikipedia to find all the genres.)

Okay, back to business. Though i have never heard of most of these genres, including the ones I haven't typed out, I do have some favourites, some that I can listen to, and some that I will turn off straight away because I hate them that much.

Favourite: soft rock, some trance
Can listen to: Reggae, Country, soul blues, easy listening, drum and bass, jazz blues, some R&B,
Absolutely hate: Heavy rock, allll rock basically (except soft), dubstep, grime.

80's soft rock is my all time favourite and I listen to it whenever I go on seriously long journey's. Have you seen the film 'Rock of Ages' with Tom Cruise? Well every single track that is in that is what I love. It always puts me in a good mood wherever and whenever I put the music on.

Clubland/trance is what I can listen to when I go to parties or whenever I am in a party mood. What is a party without club music eh? This includes: Avicci, Chase and Status, and Calvin Harris.

Reggae is what I can listen to just for fun. Bob Marley is a favourite for Reggae music; he is so laid back and chilled that his songs just make everyone else laid back and chilled. Seriously, go listen to some of his tracks.

Heavy metal/rock is what I can NOT stand. OMG if you put this on, I will go crazy and turn it off. Why would anyone want to listen to that crap? It is just people screaming down a microphone and going crazy on instruments; there is no temp, just plain and utter bollocks. NEVER put this on in my company - i will break whatever device it is playing on.

Here are some of the Artists that I listen too:
  • 2 chainz
  • Adele
  • Aerosmith
  • B.O.B
  • Bastille
  • Coldplay
  • Daniel Bedingfield
  • Daniel Powter
  • Daughtry
  • David Guetta
  • Disclosure
  • Ellie Goulding
  • Eminem
  • Fun.
  • Gabrielle Aplin
  • Imagine Dragons
  • Jason Derulo
  • Katy Perry
  • Keane
  • Lana Del Rey
  • Macklemore
  • Maroon 5
  • Miley Cyrus
  • Natasha Bedingfield
  • Naughty Boy
  • Nickleback
  • Olly Murrs
  • One Republic
  • P!nk
  • Passenger
  • Pixie Lott
  • Robbie Williams
  • Sean Paul
  • Selena Gomez
  • Snow Patrol
  • The Fray
  • The Veronicas
  • Wiz Khalifa
The Artists in bold are my all time favourites and the ones that I have the most songs by. I love these are artists; on my phone, I have an album called 'Favourites' and all of the bold artists are on it. In my 'All' album, the rest of my favourite artists are in it. Whenever i go to the gym, my favourite album is always played. 

Please exclude the Snow Patrol from the above paragraph because there is only one song that I love and it has so much meaning too it. Get your sick buckets at the ready. The reason it is in bold is because one of their songs is Daniel and I's 'Song.' It is 'our song' because of one memory we have together and the song was playing in the background as it happened. (No it was not during sexual activities so get that out of your mind you filthy minded people!) So the song is Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars. It is such an amazing, heart-melting song and having it as 'our song' is amazing.

So there you have it - request complete.

Thank you for your request Darcie!
