YAY for Music Meme!!
I got tagged by ^ValaSedai
(and I think she even created the whole thing)
Mostly folk metal. I love the power of metal sound, accompanied by many different instruments such as banjo, flute, xylophone, etc...
I have three bands I love to death. They're on a constant fight for the first place xD : TrollfesT, Finntroll and Korpiklaani
Changes a lot. I even tend to have more than one favorite song at once. Currently, those songs are "Ali Jäisten Vetten" by Korpiklaani, "Häxbrygd" by Finntroll and "Toxic (Britney Spears cover) by TrollfesT.
[Very first CD you bought:]
Oh gosh. Wait up. I think it was the first album released by The Spice Girls X'''D Oh my! I didn't even know a single english word back then, but I insisted to sing them all! The words I used to pronounce can't even be written X'D
[Favourite CD you own:]
Nifelvind by Finntroll
[Favourite CD cover:]
[Ever bought a CD just for its cover?]
Never. I always buy my CDs for their content
[Ever bought an MC?]
Many years ago xD
[Do you pay attention to lyrics?]
I would love to. Unfortunately, all the bands I listen to sing in languages I don't understand at all (German, Norwegian, Swedish, and of course I know a bit of Finnish, but not enough to sing along)
[Do you consider lyrics or music to be more important?]
Of course, music is the most important part first. When the beat is catchy or the melody is beautiful, then I try to concentrate on lyrics (when they're French or English. Otherwise I just enjoy the music itself lol)
[Instrumental or vocal?]
[Favourite quote from a song:]
We burned all our bridges,
We thought, we have lot of time,
We decided to leave our debts,
To our children,
Perhaps they are richer,
But there was something we disregarded,
The nature is in us and all the time,
We were hanging ourselves with our own rope,
We are not goin' to see the kids...
(from Gods on Fire by Korpiklaani)
[Favourite lyrics in general:]
It was hard enough to find only a quote for the previous question, I just can't choose something for "lyrics in general". But I'd probably go with "Can you forgive her" by Finntroll (Pet Shop Boys cover)
A SONG FOR...
[sad moments:] Sista Runans Dans by Finntroll
[angry moments:] Champagne Bath by Sonata Arctica
[happy moments:] TOO MANY
[calm moments:] I'd go with Enya too (like ValaSedai did lol), but I'd choose Orinoco Flow instead.
[rainy days:] Regnbagen by Svartby
[Instruments you know how to play:]
Mouthharp, xylophone, piano, guitar, bass, many kinds of flute, trumpet, clarinette... OH! I almost forgot UKULELE
I could play ukulele all day long
[Instruments you would like to be able to play:]
[Can you/do you like to sing?]
I LOVE to sing, as long as nobody hears me X'D But I admit I prefer to whistle. My co-workers nicknamed me "The Whistler" LOL
[What does music mean to you?]
Creativity and Energy!
I could walk endlessly while listening to my music!
[Headphones or earphones?]
Okay. Here's my personal "#1 problem". My overall head is smaller than the average human. No jokes. Tiny mouth, tiny nose, tiny skull... tiny ears... OTL I'm doomed when it comes to headphones/earphones. Headphones always are TOO LARGE to stand on my head, so they sit on my ears and it hurts like Hell. So, I prefer earphones. Here comes another problem. TINY EARS
They can't stay still! They're always bumping out, so I have to put them back in every now and then
I need a ghettoblaster lol
[Concerts or listening to music at home?]
I never liked concerts. I've only seen one so far, 8 years ago. It was Sonata Arctica. Awesome concert by the way
I know what you're gonna say now: "Whut? You're in a band and you don't like concerts?" Wup wup! I dislike seeing them - I love being a part of it
here's the difference! ^^
[Ever wear band shirts?] Almost all the time. Finntroll, Rammstein, Children of Bodom...
