There’s an old quote that says “You are what you listen to.” I couldn’t agree more to this because I believe that music reveals so much in a person. So, doing this challenge will reveal myself in a way since I’m putting my music on random. I don’t have iPod because I put all of my music on my iPhone. My friends believe that an iPhone and iPod are 2 different things. Weird right? I put my music on shuffle and here are the first 10 songs that popped up.
Taken by Love – Kutless
- A religious, Christian pop song that I have on my phone. I actually got the CD from a friend on Christmas and have that album on my phone. I like this band and love their voices and songs on this CD.
Cheerleader – Pentatonix
- I have a lot of Pentatonix favorites on my phone and this happens to be on my top 10 favorite PTX songs. Love it!
The Incredibles – 2008 Lakota East Symphonic Winds
- Being the band nerd I am, I do have a selection of songs from my high school days. In my junior year, we got to play the theme song to The Incredibles and it’s one my favorites to play…back in the day.
Mashup of Songs by Fun – Sing-Off Season 4 Contestants
- I’ve loved The Sing-Off ever since it premiered on NBC and it gave me my favorite band, Pentatonix. After the 3rd season, the show took a hiatus and didn’t come back for a few years. When it came back for a 4th season, I was so ecstatic and every contestant came together and performed a mashup of songs by “Fun.” This mash up was so cool so I had to buy it and put it on my phone.
Hungry – Kutless
- Another song from Kutless that I love.
Let’s Get it On – Pentatonix; Sing-Off Season 3
- One of my top 5 songs when Pentatonix was on the Sing-Off. This song brought every judge onto their feet and it was such a great rendition of a popular song back in the day
Cut n’ Run – Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band
- I’m a jazz guy. Played in a jazz band in high school and we even got to play a few songs by Gordon Goodwin. The guy knows jazz and this song is a fun song to listen to!
The Baddest Girl – PTX Vol. 1
- The first EP Pentatonix released. This was also one of the first originals too. Not many people like it, but I loved it. Scott’s voice cuts really nice in this one and as usual, he kills it.
As long as you love me/Wide Awake – Pentatonix
- This was actually the opener Pentatonix performed when they came to Cincinnati back in 2012. This arrangement was amazing and of course, I had to put it on my phone.
Video Killed the Radio Star – Pentatonix; Sing-Off Season 3
- Another favorite from their Sing-Off days. Pentatonix delivers a great arrangement of a popular song. The episode prior, the judge didn’t like their risky arrangement. So, a lot was riding on this song and they killed it.
Looking at my 10 songs, half of them are Pentatonix’s covers which I’m not ashamed of! A few religious songs, a high school concert and a jazz song. Not bad. I have so many songs on my phone and I wish I could share more but I am content with the 10 random songs that showed up!
