Music thread!


Hello, this is Golden Lion Tamarin. I used to be GoldenLionTamarin, but I decided to add the spaces because otherwise it would be too confusing. I added that note here for the sake of saving space on the top. Now to the music part.

What kind of music to you like to listen to? I like everything minus jazz. What instruments do you play ("Vocals" is completely acceptable)? I play piano, guitar, a little bit of ukulele, and violin. 

Well, I guess you can talk about anything about music. For instance, I have written 4 songs for violin (one is a concerto!).

Signing off!

I usually listen to a group probably none of you have ever heard of called Kids United. Well, I have the first two albums, so I only know those. Most of their songs are in French. Actually, my fave song is by them (it's called Destin)! 
I also listen to 2 songs by Ava Max (Kings & Queens; So Am I) and Taylor Swift (though never out loud {always with earbuds}, 'cause my sister is against all "new" music. It's only stuff from the 60s and maybe 70s and late 50s for her!).
Frozen, Frozen II, and Moana music is on my MP3 player because it's good music...
In the house, there is music playing often (or podcasts, like This American Life, for my sister, too). Mainly the Beatles, but also other stuff from that era. Like stuff from Woodstock, if anyone knows what that was.
Heh, yeah........ :P

(Oh, I'm curious if anyone actually has heard of Kids United. If not, try L'Oiseax Et L'Enfant. That was the first song I heard, and the music video's so cool...)

Does anyone like classical music? My favorites are Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Johannes Brahms, Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel, and Quasi una fantasia "Moonlight Sonata" by Ludwig van Beethoven. Oh, sorry part of it is technichally in Italian--Quasi una fantasia means "almost a fantasia", so I hope that clears things up. I mean, its just the name of a song...

Oh, yeah. I also play piano. My teacher had gotten me a really nice piano book that's absolutely amazing. It's called Au Chocolat. All the songs are titled after a chocolate dessert! Yeah, that's one reason why I love it so much. The other is that the peices themselves are the best! Oh, I love it......

I like listening to classical music, particularly dramatic violin music. But I also like Spanish music and music by Alfredo Rolando Ortiz. I do gymnastics, so I also listen to a lot of floor music. Also, I play harp.

Here are my top favorite songs:



Higher Power (Coldplay)

My Universe (Coldplay & BTS)

Speed of Sound (Coldplay)

The Scientist (Coldplay)

If Only You Knew (Yes)


Yep, one of my favorite bands is Coldplay.  Here's a sample (the chorus to Higher Power):


You've got a higher power

Got me singing every second, dancing every hour

Because you've got a higher power

And you're really someone I wanna know, oh-oh


Their entire new album, Music of the Spheres, is great (they released it in 2021!).

I love lots of different music. Country music, for instance (traditional country), and folk music from all over the world, especially Ireland, Mexico (I'm part Mexican), the US, etc. Golden Lion Tamarin, I don't really like jazz either! Oh, and I play the ukulele and the piano. My favorite thing in music is singing, though. I sing allllllll the time!

My absolutely favorite kinds of music are country and Celtic. I really like a singer called Alison Krauss, who sings country music. Anyone else heard Paper Airplane? Another singer I love is called Enya, who's originally Celtic. Other than that, I like Greek folk music and most of the songs from Frozen II.

I play the ukelele. I like to sing and I used to play the piano, but lately I really haven't been doing much of that, in fact hardly any at all.

Anything else? hmmmm... no, I guess that's about it.

I play clarinet and kind of sort of not really piano. Playing in a band is so fun! When I was in grade 6 I was the only clarinet in the whole band! Now in high school there are eight or nine of us, which is super great. We're doing chair placements next week so I have to get to practising actually.

That's so cool that you write some of your own songs, Gold Lion Tamarin!

I'm so glad to see other people who like classical music earlier on this thread, because before it was pretty much just me and my family! I also play classical music on the piano and I really like Encanto.

I listen to anythin' that I like that's playin' on the radio, like Imagine Dragons, Taylor Swift (Some of her songs, anyway), and, oh, I don't know, that song, "Running Up That Hill", LOVE IT!

Oh, and I REALLY like "We Don't Talk About Bruno", but I can only hear it when I'm at my friend's house, 'cause my dad said he's not sure 'bout Encanto...
