So I went walking today at the park and I took my rio mp3 player and in all my self-contemplation, I put into words something that I had known about myself but never been able to express. I don’t have my own music style. I steal/borrow from other people. So I decided to give credit where it is due and list where my strong music influences come from. If I’ve ever listened to music with you, then your name is probably listed:
Steve Queen (junior high youth director): News Boys, Audio A, Jars of Clay, Sonic Flood, dc Talk, Five Iron
Madison Middle School: Backstreet Boys, Hanson, Ace of Bass
Korey: Brave Saint Saturn, John Reuben, Weezer
Rebekah Y: Regina Spekktor
Joe: Cake, Jimmy Eat World, Weird Al
Shane H: Derek Webb
Andy H: Moulin Rouge
Joe/Ryan: Kelly Clarkson
Ryan: Toby Mac
Chris B.: Dave Matthews
Steele: Copeland, Death Cab, Radiohead, The Decemberists, The Shins, Cool Hand Luke, Kings of Convenience, Pedro the Lion, Sufjan
K Sweat: Shawn McDonald, Mae
A Hog: Jack Johnson
Leah: Paul Wright, Five for Fighting
Elizabeth: The Afters
B-Rooke: Frou Frou, Michael Jackson, Sixpence
Rebekah W: Michael Buble
Thank you, my friends, for broadening my horizons and making me a cooler person in general.
