Excited about my first Aloha Friday! Here goes:

I love music.

Even my earliest memories include a big old record player that I would listen to every Sunday at my great-grandmother's house after dinner.

Music has the ability to move me in a way that nothing else can. It is one of my favorite things in life. Imagine the world without different life would be.

So, I would not dare to attempt to challenge you to name your favorite song. (I could NEVER accomplish such a feat...MAYBE my favorite 100...) Instead I will ask:

***If you could see anyone in concert, dead or living, who would it be and why?***

(*My concert experiences so far, Gary Allen, George Jones, Confederate Railroad, Train, Five for Fighting, Maroon 5, John Mayer, Stone Temple Pilots, Fuel, Disturbed, John Conley, The Glory Revealed Tour (featuring the lead singer of Third Day, one of my favorite groups), and, my all time favorite, Elton John. (Think just him and the piano for 3 hours...amazing.
Wishful thinking: Bryan Adams, Aerosmith, Phil Collins, Vince Gill, George Straight, Dave Matthews Band, Third Day, Mercy Me, and The Police (or Sting...I will take what I can get!)

ME TOO, Carrie! I absolutely love music! I think it is the most inspiring & motivational thing in the world!!! There is always such a wonderful message through a song! I can cry at the drop of a hat most anytime, but if there is music in the mix, I will ALWAYS cry! It just moves me!

I'm really not sure: Dave Matthews Band is on the list; Phillips, Craig, and Dean; Third Day (already seen them once); Elton John (again); Vince Gill is on my list too; I know I'm forgetting someone really good:)

I can name my favorite song (or close to it): Soul Shine and I Surrender All (Clay Crosse version)

I may not can sing well, but I'm a HUGE fan of music. I'm one of those 'gals' that will sing while the windows are down and the sunroof back in the car, sing in the shower, sing to my litte boys. I also 'rock' out while I'm cleaning the house. LOL!! (I only play it LOUD when the boys aren't in the car). :) American Idol isn't anywhere in my future, but there is always a chance with DWTS. THAT I could do! HAHAHA!!
As for 'country' concerts......Brad Paisley & George Strait. The others would include: Journey, Dave Matthews and Hannah Montanna(only kidding about Hannah--LOL!!)
Favorite song....the list is ENDLESS!!! Hope you're doing well.

I love music, too and my girls also love it.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Happy Friday and weekend.

This is a hard question, I've been to so many great concerts from all genres of music!! But I haven't seen Third Day yet and they're one of my favorite groups so I'd love to see them.

I have never been to concert before! That is so sad! I think it would have been fun to go to a Michael Jackson concert to see him dance! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great Friday!

I was at a loss (I used to be a concert junkie. I'd love to see John Mayer again... but I wouldn't die if I didn't)...until I read Natalie's comment. I would have to concur, I would have loved to see MJ in concert.

I would also love to see Brian Littrell (of Backstreet Boy fame) perform the songs from his album Welcome Home.

Hi thanks for stopping by mine.

If I could see anyone in concert it would be Billy Joel. I always wanted to see him in concert but never got the chance.

Hope you have a great weekend♥

Brian also toured around on his own, he came to my city but it was in a sketchy neighbourhood and my husband didn't feel comfortable letting me go. :(

I hope he comes around again, I really regret that I didn't get to see him. He was always the most talented.

I think music is one of the most important things in everyone's life. My earliest memories of music is from the 50's and 60's when my older sister's were teenagers.
I enjoy most music as long as it has rhythm. I think much of the music now days is noise without a beat which is why kids jump up and down to it instead of dance.
My favorite all time song would have to be Pacabel's Canon.

My answer would probably change if you ask this question next week but as of right now I would love to see George Strait and Brad Paisley in concert. I love all sorts of music, comes from having a musician for a father, but that would be my top...for today. ;0)

Tina K Rogers said...

I love to see The Dead (Grateful Dead minus Jerry), Allman Brothers and really would LOVE to see the Rolling Stones!!! Oh, and Warren Haynes by far one of my favs!

Kristen Andrews said...

Jack Johnson, I never grow tired of any of his music, such happy music. thanks for stopping by and welcome to aloha friday!

I LOVE going to concerts!! I want to go see Pearl Jam again (I have already seen them twice).

I love music! And I love listening to it. But I hardly ever go to concerts. Off the top of my head I do not know who I would liked to see. If I had the money and a sitter I would probably go to see a Broadway musical.

Your header is most loving and adorable!

I can't say who I'd like to see in concert. Maybe SADE.
