Q: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

I adore music. In fact, I sing and play flute and piano myself! ;)
My tastes in music do not really run to modern bands though. My biggest love is musical theatre (both English-language shows and those from Europe) and I go and see musicals whenever I can (I've even performed in a few amateur shows).
I also enjoy opera and classical music, 50's and 60's pop, ABBA, big band/swing and some pop/classical crossover.

Anyway, here is a little video from YouTube of a song from one of my favourite musicals: Dracula (Czech Republic). In this scene Dracula damns God for the death of his wife and baby boy. At the end of the song he tries to commit suicide. But, earlier, when he attacked a church and killed those seeking asylum, the priest cursed him. And so, instead of dying, he becomes a vampire.... Enjoy!


  1. Hopping through. I used to be really into shows. I've never listened to European ones. Very cool.

  4. I love neo-soul and classic soul music. One of my favorite singers is Melinda Doolittle. She placed third during Season 6 of American Idol. Her music combines the best of R&B, soul, jazz, and pop.
