Day 1 - AtoZ Music, Writer's POV

Welcome to my crazy writerly blog. I'm Taryn Elliott--zany romance author, and lover of all things music. To say my taste is eclectic would be putting it mildly. This is my 2nd year doing the AtoZ Blogging challenge. I met some really awesome people the last go-round. I really enjoy the interaction and the challenge of writing up a post a day. I'm under deadline and a little crazy--I mentioned that earlier huh? Oh well...bears repeating--but I'm going to do my best to make sure posts go up every day. I decided on music as my daily topic. I'm a writer and sometimes I actually get sick of blogging about my craft. What I don't ever get sick of is music.

I'm slightly obsessed with it actually. Probably because I have no musical ability whatsoever. LOL

 

So I figured it would be fun to write up about fave bands, songs, and vids in an open forum where people can bitch, bash, or squee about my crazy choices. I welcome them all! Oh and I totally welcome your input and suggestions on musicians. You can find me on SPOTIFY under Taryn Elliott.

 

A SPECIAL shout out to the big momma of this whole crazy blogger filled interaction! Thanks Arlee Bird, at Tossing it Out, for coming up with the idea. I know it's a lot of work, but we appreciate it VERY much!

 

Now...onto the posting.

I heard this one on the radio when I was out doing errands this weekend. I liked the song so much I totally did the illegal phone move to find my music app. Seriously, I don't know how I lived without Soundhound and Tune Up. I'm forever finding songs on a tv show or the radio that I want to dissect.

 

So, for my LETTER A, I'm going with

Adelita's Way - Alive

You're the only reason I fight

You're the best thing in my life.

There's something endearing about a rock band that writes really good relationship songs. I don't know if it's the sensitive poetic side that I love, or the fact that a man can simply give us a tiny trip into their minds and tell the listener how they feel. Whatever it is, I gotta say...Relationship songs are my all time fave songs. The good, the bad, and the painful--I love them all.

 

And just in case you don't have SPOTIFY in your region...
