Life of A Blogger is hosted by Novel Heartbeat
A weekly feature about our lives outside of blogging!
I've been seeing this meme for awhile and thought it would be fun to integrate since I don't talk too much about my personal life here. They'll hopefully be short, but a good way to get to know the girl behind the blog!
Today's topic is:
Genres of Music
But the core of me is forever dedicated to R&B, soul, and Motown. I remember the first time I heard a Boyz II Men song, I think I was 7 or 8…and I fell so head over heels in love. I bought every CD they had released, played every song over and over and over (4 Seasons of Loneliness still gets me). And this is how young I was: I skipped I'll Make Love To You because I didn't want my parents to know I listened to songs like that!
I very much credit the Space Jam soundtrack to my love of R&B, because even though I was a bit young at the time I fell deeply in love with the genre (with a special place in my heart for 90's R&B Jamz). Original Usher, K-Ci & Jojo, Monica, Brandy, Dru Hill, Ginuwine, Immature, Jagged Edge, Jill Scott, Keith Sweat, En Vogue, TLC, Maxwell, The Fugees, Montell Jordan, Next, SWV, 112, All-4-One…trust me. If you could body roll or bump 'n grind to it in the 90s, I loved it.
(And in case you're wondering the genres I absolutely cannot stand: dubstep, anything possibly EDM-like, and metal. And I cannot stand the bands Nickelback and Creed, whatever genre into which they fall.)
What music do you love?
