I know I’m *primarily* a book blog, but most of what I post outside of bookish content is music related, as apart from being a bibliophile, I’m a major music nerd as well. I found this tag over at Margaret @ Weird Zeal , and the tag was created by Sophie @ Me & Ink.
Link back to original so she can see your answers and listen to the tunes
For every prompt you choose to do, name 1-5 songs (you can use my graphics)
Have fun and play your music LOUD
Let’s begin, shall we? (I skipped a prompt or two because I couldn’t find anything for some of them, but here we go…)
“Lazarus”–David Bowie:The day that David Bowie died, I remember my dad driving my brother and I to school in silence as this song played.
“Day Go By”–Karen O.:I listened to this whole album while I was in Canada last year, and I remember listening to this one in a hotel in Drumheller.
“Exit Music (for a Film)”–Radiohead:I discovered OK Computer last year, and I remember being curled up at the entrance of the cafeteria, reading a collection of Tennyson’s poems while blasting this through my headphones. (Yes, I am That Kid™️)
“Hunky Dory”–David Bowie: My favorite album of all time, hands down. Perfection.
“Twin Fantasy”–Car Seat Headrest: WHAT AN ALBUM…OH MAN…
“OK Computer”–Radiohead: See above. Pure genius.
Hmm, let’s see…
“Once in a Lifetime”–Talking Heads: …just watch the video. You’ll see what I mean.
“Life on Mars?”–David Bowie: This was my halloween costume last year…
“It’s Oh So Quiet”–Björk: Sorry to repeat a song, but this video always cheers me up 🙂
I TAG ANY OF MY FELLOW MUSIC NERDS WHO WANT TO PARTICIPATE!
Since this tag is all about music, consider this entire tag today’s song…
That’s it for this tag! Hope you enjoyed this dip into the weirdness that is my taste in music…
Have a wonderful rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
Happy Thursday, bibliophiles! Hope that all is well in your world!
While looking for tags to do, I found this one at Not-so-modern girl. The tag was originally created by Tiana @ The Book Raven. I have a whole shelf on Goodreads dedicated to covers I love, so this one should be fun…
1. Thank the lovely person who tagged you, spread the love!
“THE SIMPLE AESTHETIC”: A Book that Stuns with the Most Minimalistic of Designs
There’s several different editions of Stranger in a Strange Landout there, but this is the one that I borrowed at the library. The letters were shiny, too…isn’t it just so pretty?
“COVER ENVY”: A Book Cover that You Wish You Had on your Shelf, but Don’t
The Final Sixis one of those books that I deeply regret borrowing from the library…SO GOOD…I WANT TO OWN IT…
Also, on an unrelated note, I think this book might be what ultimately pushed me to listen to all of Radiohead’s OK Computer. There’s this really creepy scene where one of the characters quotes a line from “Paranoid Android” (“When I am king/You will be first against the wall…”), and though I’d heard Radiohead before, this was what ultimately convinced me.
“TRAVELLING ABROAD”: A Book Cover Featuring a Country Outside of Your Own
The cover doesn’t necessarily show it, but White Roseis set in World War II-era Germany.
“THE COLOR WHEEL”: A Book Cover that Showcases One of Your Favorite Colors
Teal and turquoise are my favorite colors, and the cover of Even the Darkest Starsis dominated by both, luckily for me!
“SWITCHING GEARS”: A Cover Change you Absolutely Adore
I think they switched the Carry Oncover for the paperback edition, and I am SO HERE FOR IT! I mean, what could go wrong with Kevin Wada’s gorgeous art?
“AND THE WINNER IS…”: Which Book Cover Mentioned Above is Your Favorite?
Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you all had a great week 🙂
After last week’s lethargy, I’ve gotten back on track for my reading challenge of 250 books. (I’m at 18 so far) I crossed several books off of my TBR that’ve been there for a while, and plus, I won’t have to make any excuses for not yet reading Watchmen. (!!!) And speaking of which, I started watching the HBO adaptation of Watchmen, and I ADORE IT so far! I mean, I’m only 3 episodes, in, but…
