Listening to music
Want to listen to some music?
Why don’t you pick something? I have a lot of new CDs on my desk.
I haven’t heard of some of these bands. What kind of music do they play?
Smoking Hearts is a rock band from England, Neon Trees is kind of dance or light rock, Cobra Starship is dance pop. I have country, dance, ska, punk, rock, oldies. I have Elvis if you like him.
I didn’t know you like old music like Elvis.
I listened to a lot of my parent’s music when I was younger. The Eagles, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, The Beach Boys, The Beatles. I have a lot of their music.
Do you have any Alkaline Trio?
I have one of their albums around here somewhere. I have a friend who loves them and goes to their concerts all the time. She sent me one of their CDs.
That was nice of her.
Oh here it is. Let’s listen to it.
Ok. I don’t have this album.
I really like it. It’s a little different than their other albums.
I think I’ll have to buy this to add to my collection.
Tim Armstrong? Who is he?
That’s his solo reggae album.Well, ska reggae sort of. He’s the lead singer of Rancid. He used to be in Operation Ivy when he was much younger.
We should listen to this one next.
OK. I think you’d like Neon Trees. The woman who plays drums is really impressive, she sings vocals as well.
That’s not something you see every day.
No, it’s not. Their music is really catchy.
That’s neat. I like it when a band has music that’s fun to listen to.
I’ve watched some of their live recordings on their website. They sound really good live. Some bands don’t sound as good live as they do in the studio.
Yeah, I know of a few bands like that. It’s kind of disappointing when they aren’t as good in person.
You won’t be disappointed with Neon Trees. You can borrow the CD if you want.
