Musician favorites

anonymous asked:

Hello !! may I know what your favorite musicians are or who have you listened to these days? I'm really curious about your musical taste ;u; aghhh you're amazingly cute

Aww thank you! I like Idina Menzel, Joanna Newsom, Fountains of Wayne, Gregory and the Hawk, Daoko, Bonjour Suzuki, Oomori Seiko, SoKo, early Keene, Belle and Sebastian, Grace VanderWaal, and about two songs by each and every artist except John Mellencamp. (Sorry, Mellencamp.)

You did it. You went the long way around the sun and now you’re back for another Tumblr Year in Review. This year: 2016.

Tumblr Gets Deep
When reblogs get witty, wise, or just straight-up WTF.


“There is a rumor going around that I turned Beyoncé down…Just to clear up, I would never be so disrespectful…I would never disrespect her like that. I’m such a fan, oh my god!” At a different point in the interview, Adele rattled off a few of her favorite musicians…before stating her number one: “Obviously, Queen Bey to the day I die.”

The number in italics indicates how many spots a name moved up or down from the previous year. Bolded names weren’t on the list last year.

Prince was one of the most consistently referenced musicians in the history of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, with only The Beatles having more references. Avdol has a chicken named Prince. He’s the favorite musician of Josuke in Part 4, and some of his outfits influenced Josuke’s character design. Giorno has Golden Experience. Both of the main duo of Part 8 protagonists have stands that reference Prince, with Soft & Wet and Paisley Park. Along with his musical genius, he had a great impact on Jojo as well.

I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.
