Follow and Feature Friday #3

Follow and Feature Friday (and Twitter hop) is a weekly feature hosted by Rachel of Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read.  To participate, all you have to do is follow both blogs (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read), the weekly featured blogs on their sites (this week is Book Den and Badass Book Reviews).  Once you do that (and leave a comment), you check out the other blogs on the hop (comment and follow them) and they should comment and follow you back.

The question of the week is:  Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

I have a WIDE range of tastes---I'll listen to just about anything except electronica, scream metal, and rap.  My ipod is full of oldies, Glee songs, mashups, country, pop, rock and punk.  It really just depends on the day as to what I listen to.

I thought it would be fun to pull out my ipod, put it on shuffle, and tell you the first five songs that came up: 
1.  The Lion Sleeps Tonight as sung by Eddie From Ohio
2.  Unchained Melody as sung by Willie Nelson
3.  Bust a Move as sung by Glee Cast
4.  All I Wanna Do by Sugarland
5.  Tell Him by The Exciters

My husband and I are going to a Flogging Molly concert in February.  Flogging Molly is an awesome Irish punk band.  They combine traditional Irish instruments with awesome punk guitars and are one of my favorite bands, and has been since my sophomore year of college, I love seeing them live.


The twitter hop works the same---head to my twitter, @Maestra_Amanda, follow me, let me know you are following me, and I'll follow you back.  Win win :)

Thanks for the follow!
