When it comes to music, I like quite a lot of different types of music. I like classical music, I’m a big Vivaldi fan, I know it’s not very original but ‘The Four Seasons’ is just awesome. I also like a bit of rock, Bush or Smashing Pumpkins (do they count as rock?) are always good. In the nineties I was a huge Blur fan, and I still enjoy their cheerful tunes. I have a real love for Acda en de Munnik, a Dutch duo whose lyrics are so clever and the melodies are great. I also like strong female voices like Whitney Houston. A woman with a guitar like Janis Ian or Jewel is always great. I guess my guilty pleasure would be the Dixie Chicks – ha ha who doesn’t love a bit of country music. Anyway, I could go on forever, but my all time favourite album is ‘August and everything after’ by the Counting Crows. Whether I’m happy or sad, there is always a song on there that enhances or matches my mood and his voice is just something special.
What is your favourite album? Or what type of music do you like?
