Feature and Follow Friday #4: Favorite Music

Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly social blog hop between book bloggers. There are two hosts: Parajunkee and Alison of Alison Can Read. If you want to join in, click on either of their blogs to get the details.

Question of the Week: 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 no original or underground music suggestions, because I'm the type of person who listens to something I like until everyone around wants to poke pencils into their ears.  In college, I had a Chuck Berry phase in which I kept playing a few songs over and over in my shared dorm room: "Sweet Little Sixteen" was one, and "Johnny B. Goode" was another. I don't know how my roommate kept from strangling me. 


Today, I have the same repetitive listening patterns. Lately I've been obsessed with The Blood Arm, Cake, old Liz Phair, the Fratellis, and Robert Plant & Alison Krauss. I bet I'm going to get some new material for my obsessive-compulsive listening list as I jump around the other blogs. Onward!


  1. I love that song that Robert Plant and Alison Krauss do. I think it's called Gone or maybe Gone Gone Gone. Either way. I love it. New follower here.

  2. Thanks for stopping by - happy to return the visit (and the follow).

    I'm like you, when I fixate on a band, I need to load the whole discography onto the car stereo and listen to it long after everybody else is ready to strangle me.

    Here's my FF

  3. @Priscilla: Yes! "Gone Gone Gone." It's amazing!

    @Bob: It's like reading a book, and liking it so much you then go on to read all of author's works. I'm guilty of that as well! But others aren't forced to be a part of reading fixations!

  4. Wow, some bands I never heard of before. I will have to look them up. New follower. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
