Music Lover

I am a massive Music lover and I just can’t seem to dedicate myself to one genre. I have been going to concerts since I was about religiously since i was about 8, my first one being ever one being when i was a baby to see Kool and The Gang. That’s right my mum and Dad thought it was a great idea to take twin babies to a concert… CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES C’MON, Not that i remember the concert mind you but still not many people can say that James “J.T.” Taylor said that they were the most beautiful baby they had seen. That title my friends is dedicated to me (must of had a few whiskeys at that point). My concert that i can remember has to be good old Steps, popping out of massive christmas presents. So i have decided to put together a list of people i have seen Live, giving you and idea of what music i like and also to remind myself as i have a memory of a fish!

Steps, Westlife, Blue, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Pussycat Dolls (Dont know why i went to that one tbh), Rihanna, Red Hot Chilli Peppers x2, Linkin Park, The Killers, Dizzee Rascal x2, All Time Low, Ed Sheeran, Mayday Parade, Passenger, One Direction x2, You Me At Six x5, Paramore x3, Kaiser Chiefs x2, Ronan Keating, Rise Against the machine, Blink 182, District 3, N Dubz, The Saturdays, Jason Derulo, Metallica, Slipknot, The Wombats x2, The Feeling, Olly Murs, Plain White T’s, Biffy Clyro, Santagold, Babyshambles, The Cribs, Seasick Steve, The Morning of, The Ting Tings, Foals, Vampire weekend, One Night only, The enemy, Weezer.

One Direction Obsession

 Now I may have mentioned my love for this band in other post beforehand but I have soon come to realise I have an obsession and unfortunately for me there is no rehab for this. I am a huge music lover and I have such a wide variety i listen to from Blink 182, You me at six, Linkin park, Red hot chilli peppers, Maroon 5, The Script, Ed Sheeran, Paramore, Kings of Leon and of course I’m a massive 80′ fan. Too add to my favourite list is One Direction.


    It all started with The X factor back in 2010 when they were puttogether by the famous Simon Cowell and came 3rd in the competition. I have to admit i liked them back then with their cute video diaries on the stairs. It was then the release of ‘What makes you beautiful’ that they really caught my eye. Now I am no stranger to a bit of cheesy pop music, definitely my guilty pleasure but I couldn’t help but find myself more intrigued by these lads and my google search began. 


   After what seemed like numerous hours of stalking I felt I knew the lads and they were my best mates. Which is strange I know… Harry seemed like the ladies man and with that hair and dimples who can blame him? Louis seemed like the funny one with loads on banter, Zayn was the bradford bad boy turned pouting hunk, Liam was the sensible spoon fearing teddy bear who has amazing chocolate eyes and Niall was the Irish, guitar playing, cheeky chappy who supports Derby County (My Hometown) so I obviously assumed we were all best mates.

    I soon began to follow them on twitter and watch their twitcam’s and they proved to me they were down to earth, funny guys who loved their fans. I not going lie I am one of those who do tweet them and hope for a follow or reply, in this messed up head of mine I think they will see me but I know it isn’t going to happen, though i can hope. I think my draw to them is that they are normal guys who love banter, which I love.

  I recently went to see Louis Tomlinson play football for his team 3 horse shoes FC in a match against Doncaster Rovers in aid of a charity called Bluebell woods. I attend University near Doncaster and had a friend who lived there and saw this as a perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. After arriving at the ground I was confronted by crying screaming girls who were clawing a a metal fence, as they were just greeted with the arrival of the lads who came to support Louis. I was one taken by surprise of how dramatic the girls were… I say this as a drama student and two how much security the boys have to take with them. The game was great and as a football fan it was an experience to watch a match in a stadium full of girls, who just screamed every time the ball went near Louis. I felt as one of the few people there actually watching the game. My friend Charlotte found the whole experience comical as she was not a big fan and couldn’t get her head around it. The lad’s made time to go around the pitch and say hello to fans and Louis couldn’t stop thanking everyone for supporting him, which warmed my heart bless him. I felt as a mature fan, even though I’m hardly mature and not quite cougar status, I was too out of place but still seeing the lads in real life minus Zayn still made me happy and all for a great cause too!


    ‘Take me home’ shall be released very soon and I have pre ordered my deluxe edition, very exciting indeed. They recently released the stream on Itunes and I have to admit I have yet to stop playing it. The album is similar to up all night but with more of a ‘Live’ sound and more mature songs. What makes me happy is that there are two songs ‘Little Things’ and ‘Over Again’ which are written by my favourite artist Ed Sheeran, who I saw in concert last week in Nottingham ( Which may i add was one of the best gigs, I’ve been too in my life).  I can’t say I dislike any of their new material and cannot wait for them to perform them live. I shall be attending the ‘Take Me Home’ tour next year in April at nottingham and I honestly can’t wait. I may feel out of place being an older fan but I am taking my 18 year old and 13 year old cousin, so I am using them as my cover but I feel no shame.


    Now I know what your thinking your a 20 year old girl get a grip of yourself but I honestly will not … I am a fan. I can’t express how much stick I get for liking this band from my housemates and family but I love it. I won’t call myself a ‘Directioner’ because not to be mean but they are a bit mental, after searching twitter I found they were are all saying they will marry them, have their children, kill anyone who looks at them… mind you these are all 12 year old girls. They also have accounts that follow their every move.  While I admire their dedication, they scare the shit out of me. I  just picture hit girl from kick ass, holding the 1D dolls.

   I can’t help but feel sympathy towards the band to have no privacy and they try and live their normal teenage lives but I guess that’s the price you pay for stardom. What I admire about the lads is they don’t complain about it either, they are grateful for where they are and love their fans. They are not short of celebrity admirers too including James Corden, Barack Obama, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Will Smith and Justin Bieber. 

 So to conclude I have an obsession with One Direction and LOVE IT.
