FIBF: Music Edition




1. One song that always takes me back to my youth is "Spiderweb" by No Doubt. I remember begging my mum for my own phone line so I could get an answering machine and have the "Sorry I'm not home right now/ I'm walking into spiderwebs/Leave a message and I'll call you back" as my "message." Sadly it never happened.

2. My first concert ever was Backstreet Boys 1999 "Millennium" Tour in New Orleans. It was a group of 5 or 6 of my friends and our mums took us on an over night trip - all the girls had floor tickets and our mums sat in a different section. It was pure teenie bopper awesomeness.

3. If I could create my dream music festival I'd want these bands to be there: Bob Marley, Cœur de Pirate, Marc Broussard, Joshua Radin, Andrew Landon, Brett Dennen, Sons of William, Charlie Mars, Jack Johnson, GIVERS, Drew Landry, Dave Barnes, Balkan Beat Box, Jake Smith, Reeve Carney & the Revolving Band, OAR, Cedric Watson, Regina Spektor, Grupo Fantasma, Fishtank Ensemble, + so many more.

4. The best make-out/"boot knocking" song ever is "A Ribbon" by Devendra Banhart or "Night Drive" by Jimmy Eat World.

5. The best concert I've ever been to was...eeeek. Do I have to pick just one?? Let's do this. Best one this year was Charlie Mars & Marc Broussard at One Eyed Jacks in NOLA.

6. A memorable musical moment for me was the weeked that PTL & I did 4 Marc Broussard/Sons of Williams concerts in 2 states/3 cities/3 days. It was just one of those weekends when you fall in love with live music all over again.

7. The song on my iPod that's getting the most play these days is anything by Drew Landry, but more specifically "Break of Day." It's got this eerie calming quality and the rawness of his voice kills me.

Can't wait to look on the #4 songs... and I loved that No Doubt song when I was younger. Ace of Base always takes me back...

#1 was the EXACT same for me! I still think about it every time I hear the song. And #2 was close, too, but ours was NSync
