This is probably my single favourite question to be asked in the world. I tend to get asked this many times a month as lots of my friends know I have the access to new music because of what I do for a living. It really is something special to be able to talk about music as part of my day-to-day work and I am very thankful for that.
The sad thing is that when people ask this question of me these days I tend to be a bit embarassed at some of the stuff I actually am listening to. I tend to be listingening to lots of top 40 stuff. The fact is that it is the business of popular culture. The current list of songs and artist I am listening to (this week) might look a little something like this...
Lady Gaga - 'Bad Romance'
Beyonce - 'Sweet Dreams' (had to use that image - Beyonce is a godess)
Ke$ha = 'Tik Tok'
Jay-Z feat Alicia Keys - 'Empire State of Mind'
The Temper Trap - 'Sweet Disposition'
I'm not complaining - it's just funny how things change and how damn catchy these tracks are these days.
I did however play the new Julian Casablancas album today from start to finish a few times. So the next time someone asks me the question "What are you listening to these days" I can hold my head high and say just that.
Check this one out when you have a second. The album is really great. TOURIST HERE
Good Music Is Still Good Music at the end of the day.
