And now, for some pretty neat and thoughtful questions!!!

What was the first song you ever heard by 6? 
Um, I think the first song I ever heard by Eisley was "Marvelous Things" and from then on I've been hooked on them. (Thanks to Alaythea C.!!)

What is your favourite song of 8?
"Hymn For The Missing" and "The Fight Inside"

What kind of impact has 1 left on your life? 
Goodness, where should I start? Anberlin has been the band that I have grown up listening to and with. I started listening to their first record as a juvenile and well, their first album's direction was a little bit  more juvenile and quite "Me Against The World" which worked because I was 14/15 and I kinda felt the same way. After their other albums came out they become more man versus man, and then they just kept on maturing as did I. It always has seemed that their newest album and songs have come out just at the right time in my life, just when I needed to take the lyrics they wrote to heart to strengthen myself. I also caught my love's eye for the first time while wearing my Anberlin t-shirt (Jared was wearing his Marvel shirt...hehe!)

What is your favorite lyric of 5's? 
"If I could not hold a pen, I would write of you on my heart instead...You have bought me with your blood and I am painted red by your love." (Painted Red)

How many times have you seen 4 live? 
Ugh. Never. I need to though!

What is your favorite song of 7? 
"Trinity" but "Ride To California" is pretty funky and awesome too!

Is there any song of 3 that makes you sad? 
The song "Rest" makes me somewhat sad in the fact that there have been many times when I've failed to rest in God and instead just pretended to live life...alone. Here are some of the lyrics from the song: "You found a way to go on for days, pretending to live, you're not okay with all of that weight, you need to give up, come now just let it go, let it fall down, let it all flow like, the water that's rushing in over your soul 'til there's nothing left, won't you come to me and rest."

What is your favorite song by 9?
"Patience" It is so beautifully moving to me.....the lead singer has such a strong beautiful voice...or should I say handsome voice since guys don't wanna be called beautiful? Just listen to the song, and you'll know what I'm talking about! lol The song is sort of punk-pop-rock (to me) as it builds too which is fab! Check out the band on Facebook at this link:  And By Love

How did you first get into 2? 
I heard their song "Broken Heart" on the late night Christian radio station in my old hometown and after that night I went searching for their CD's at the Family Christian Store and since then I've been head over heels in LIKE with these guys!

How did you first get into 3? 
I think I heard one of their songs on a WOW album once or something, and then I saw their CD in Best Buy, and seeing as how I had a gift card to spend I didn't hesitate to give Nevertheless the benefit of the doubt with my gift card. I wasn't disappointed.

What is your favorite song by 4? 
"Rawkfist" It's THE CLASSIC. I've many other favorite songs by them though.

How many times have you seen 9 live? 
I've never seen them live, but maybe someday I will go back to my Hometown and pay the band a visit!

What is a good memory concerning 10? 
Oh gosh! Singing "Automatic" in the car at the top of my lungs while driving through the mountains with my momma and sister.

Is there a song by 8 that makes you sad? 
Nope, not really.

What is your fave song of 1's? 
"Dismantle. Repair." Picking only ONE song is just downright wrong! Anberlin is my ALL-TIME-FAVE band, so really every one of their songs is my favorite! Different seasons of my life make me like certain songs of theirs more than others.

How did you become a fan of 10?
I went on a trip to Florida with an old friend one time and her cousin kept on talking about this German band called Tokio Hotel.....and well, since a lot of my family is German and the blood flows through my veins I just had to go have a listen to them and check them out.

I hereby tag anyone who is willing to join the musical tag fun! Oh yeah!


  1. Yay! Glad you liked the tag ;)
    I saw TFK in concert just a couple weeks ago! I like JJ Heller...only heard a couple songs by her. Nice, girl! Glad you had fun ;)

  2. Haha, you like Tokio Hotel? Haha. :D
    Sorry...it's just people here love Tokio Hotel or hate them. I don't like their music to be honest.
    Do you listen to the German songs? They also have songs in English, do they?
    I only know that there is an English version of "Durch den Monsun" (Through the Monsoon)

  3. {Raquel} I am SO jealous that you saw TFK, girl! I bet you had a good time! Do you like them? =)

    {Antonia} Yes, I do LOVE Tokio Hotel! I think that their name is a little weird, but Bill Kaulitz is WAY COOL! I actually can sing along to 'Durch Den Monsun" and it is one of my favorite songs of theirs. My cousin, Aurelie (who lives in Germany), really likes them too.

  4. Why do all of those men look like they are a bunch of cavemen of the geico commercials with guitars? Just wondering ;)!
