Duran Duran in 1984 or 1985

ULTIMATE CONCERT (EVEN IF IT CAN'T HAPPEN)
Queen. 
I would have loved to see Freddie Mercury perform live.

FAVORITE MUSIC ARTIST/BAND
I love music but I don't keep up much with current artists/bands. I tend to just like random songs. To pick just one, though, I do like some stuff from Imagine Dragons.

HOW DO YOU LISTEN? STREAMING, CDS, VINYL?
In the car I listen to Sirius/XM (80's station, First Wave). At home I use my iPod or the iHeartRadio app.

WHAT'S THE FIRST CONCERT YOU EVER ATTENDED?

  1. My first - and second - concert was Nsync. :-) I watch TV but not a ton of it. I have a hard time keeping up.

    1. Hey Lauren (Shooting Stars Mag), my first two concerts were NSYNC too! Oh man, my love for Justin Timberlake is too real. Haha.

  2. This was a fun post! I think the first concert I attended was The Party and Taylor Dane, but I can't be sure.

    1. Oh, and I've listened to HIM like 8000 times. LOL

    2. Oh my goodness, I remember Taylor Dayne! My younger sister had the cassette (yes, we're going a ways LOL) and played Don't Rush Me *constantly*. Haha.

      And the audio version of Him... gah!!! Looove the audio of both Him and and Us. I sometimes just pick a random chapter and listen just to get my Wesmie fix. :)

  3. I can picture you shrugging like ahh oh well no tv here. =)
    Great list.

    1. LOL Yeah, pretty much, Mary. :) I mean, we do *own* a TV. A huge wall-mounted flatscreen that my husband had to have for some reason. But we go days and days without ever turning it on. And when we do it's usually so he can watch some local news or maybe catch a football game. Neither of us watch any shows.

      I was soooo into DD in the 80's! :)

  4. You saw Duran Duran? Awesome. :) And I've only read one Taylor Jenkins Reid book but I was impressed.

    Ditto on Queen.

    1. OMG, I was obsessed with DD in the 80's. LOL I saw them in 84-85 and again in the early 90's.

  5. Finally! Someone else who doesn't really watch TV. I mean, do Hallmark movies count? No, they are elixir for my soul, but anyhow. I don't know if I will be able to watch The Nightingale, because I still cry when I talk about that book. I love that your first show as Duran Duran. Mine was Tears for Fears with Dexy's Midnight Runners in 1985 at Radio City Music Hall. Good times.

    1. I've never even seen a Hallmark movie (I don't think). LOL When people talk about all their shows I just kind of stare blankly. Ha! Yeah, seeing The Nightingale on screen would probably destroy me, but I would still see it. My sister is reading it right now and is nearing the end. She keeps texting me about it.

      OMG, I love that you first show was TFF (with Dexy's Midnight Runners, no less LOL). I never got to see TFF live. We totally could have been BFFs in the 80's. Heehee.

  6. This is so fun! Though I don't know how you survive without TV. To quote Joey from Friends "What's all your furniture pointed at?" 😂

    My first concert... it was in 1994 I think and my friend wanted to go to see... crap, they were like, the knockoff Boyz II Men... I have to google. All-4-One! Wow that wasn't even trying to be a subtle copying, was it? Hah. Apparently it wasn't too memorable bwhahah.

    1. What's your funrniture pointed at... LOL I love that. :) We do actually *own* a TV... it's just rarely ever used.

      All-4-One... bahaha! Yeah, I remember them. And you're so right, they weren't even subtle about ripping off Boyz II Men. Ha!

      Delete
  7. I don't watch TV either, though I do Have some shows I binge watch on netflix when I have the opportunity {which I haven't really had for almost a year}. And my first concert was Power Station... so, half of Duran Duran essentially.

    1. Ha! I saw DD and you saw Powerstation. I love that! Now we just need to find someone who saw Arcadia (did they ever even tour?).

  8. OMG YOU KNOW AND LOVE PETER'S FRIENDS!! I love that film, mostly I love the music. No one else knows it, whenever I talk about it I get blank stares!

    I wonder if I should try Armentrout's Lux series.

    1. What???!!! You know Peter's Friends? No one *ever* knows what I'm talking about when I mention that movie. Hooray for finding a like-minded soul! :) I just love that ensemble cast, their stories, the humor (so many great one-liners that The Husband and I still use to this day). And yes, the music all throughout was so good!

      I'm not sure how much you would enjoy the Lux series, honestly. It's YA, Daemon is kind of a jerk throughout the first book (but there are reasons LOL), and it could be considered a little tropey. But... there's something about it that pulled me in from the start and even now I get fluttery thinking about the whole series. :)

    2. Yes, I know Peter's Friends. Weird story. I was perhaps ten years old and my parents sent me to summer camp to improve my French and one of the teachers had the soundtrack. I fell in love with that soundtrack and when I got home I bought the CD. That was pre-Internet, so it took a while for me to find out there's a film. Finally, I found out about the film and bought it. I showed it to my very British girlfriend a few months ago and she had never heard of it: ONLY ALL OF THE BRITISH ACTING TREASURES IN ONE FILM??!

      Thank you about your info re Lux. I'll have to take a look at it, because honestly sometimes tropey is just what I want :)

  9. Your favorite author is KA Tucker? I just got her ARC of Be the Girl! And yes Freddie Mercury ...that would have been something!

    1. I *love* K.A. Tucker and she's definitely among my small handful of favorites authors. I've read 8 books from her so far and they just keep getting better. I'm so excited for Be the Girl! Lucky you to get an arc!

      Delete
  10. I do love K.A. Tucker, too! Can you believe my first concert was Little River Band? Wasn't my choice, but I loved them. This is a fun tag. I need to do one someday! :)

    1. Oh my goodness, Little River Band really takes me back. They had so many good songs!

  11. So agree about seeing Queen. I wish I could have!

    1. Freddie Mercury was such an amazing performer/entertainer. Seeing him live would have been quite an experience. I settled for watching Queen's Live Aid performance on YouTube the other night. :)

  12. I've definitely reread the Addicted books more than I should have as well. ;) And I'm a fan of Imagine Dragon's music as well! ♥

    1. I never get tired of the Addicted characters.♥

  13. I think I might reread a few of Rainbow Rowell’s books this year. I love them!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I've reread Eleanor & Park several times but I'd love to do a reread of Attachments. It was such a feel-good book.

  14. I can't remember my first concert... It was either Machine Head or Fear Factory. Both heavy metal bands, both in my teenage years and neither band I listen to now. (Even though I'm still partial to my heavy metal, lol.)

    Queen (with Freddie) would be amazing to see. I'm betting it'd still be a pretty awesome show with Adam Lambert fronting.

    Replies
    1. Adam Lambert is pretty impressive! He really holds his own when stepping in as the front man. Speaking of Queen, I still need to go see Bohemian Rhapsody.

  15. I don't actually remember what my first concert was. I always was more of a dancing girl than a concert girl :-D I absolutely remember my first party at a disco though. And they definitely played Duran Duran at the clubs I used to go to!
    Also, I have to check out some of your favorite authors. I think we've got similar taste. :-)

    1. I used to lose my mind when a remix of a Duran song would get played at a club. It was like everything coming together for a perfect night. :)

  16. I thought I was the only person on the planet who had seen the movie Peter's Friends! I love that movie. Such a brilliant cast!
