July's feature is "My Teen Years" and as a teen, I was listening to quite an eclectic amount of music from Classical to Pop/Rock. So I'm happy to share the music with other readers. ^_^
Classical was always a go-to genre of music because of my participation in choir both in school and church. Bond was the first group that made me feel as though I could really share my love of classical music with friends I had outside of choir. Watching them play is just energizing, and "Duel" is one of my favorites.
I'm a hug fan of big voices. Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston (may she rest in peace), all of these ladies were my divas. However, there was a new voice I came across in high school that just blew me away. It's hard selecting one of my favorite songs by Sarah Brightman, but I think "Deliver Me" was the one I listened to most off her Eden album, the first one I owned in high school. (Btw, I have to say this video of the artist speed-drawing Sarah is awesome.)
Okay, y'all. I have to come clean. Yes, I did listen to boy bands back in high school. Heck, N'Sync even performed at my high school before they were "high on the charts." But I was disappointed by this, why you ask? Because they weren't BSB. Yes, friends, I was a Backstreet Boys fan. And there was no song that could compare to "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)."
Now to hopefully redeem myself to you (or perhaps make you all go, "Wha?"), I'm going to share the title song from one of my most favorite movies as a kid, as a teen, and even now. I know at least a few of my blogging friends will appreciate hearing "The Last Unicorn" by America.
What did y'all listen to back in your Teen Years?
