Hi all!! For October 2016, I’m going to do an ABC Music Challenge. It’s pretty self-explanatory but I would like to thank Jamie from ‘My Soulmate: Music‘ for indirectly introducing me to this challenge. 😀
For each letter, I’ll to have at least of these 3 different types of music:
- Contemporary (This probably won’t be in just English. I like J-Pop, K-Pop, Mandopop and Cantopop. Sometimes, I listen to Spanish, French, German and Arabic singers as well. Most of the songs in this section should be released between 1950 – present day.)
- Soundtrack or Instrumental (Generally, this section shouldn’t have lyrics. Any soundtracks with lyrics will probably in the Contemporary section. By the way, I watch anime (sometimes) so don’t be too surprised if something weird comes up. I also like contemporary classical pieces, which I feel don’t go under ‘classical’ so they’re going to be here. 😛 )
- ‘Classical’ (Most people refer to anything before the 20th-century rock and pop as ‘classical’ but music fanatics like me will know that there’s the Baroque period (c1600 – c1750), the Classical period (c1750 – c1830), the Romantic period (c1830 – c1900). For no. 3, I will be recommending music from all 3 of these periods.)
If I don’t have a song for more than one category, I’m going to recommend just 3 songs. That sounds reasonable, right?
Actually, I might have an ‘Others’ section as well, just in case something doesn’t fit into one of those categories. I’ll have a ‘Notable Mentions’ as well, which consists of songs which I don’t particularly like but don’t particularly hate either. If you don’t like my main recommendations, you should give these a try.
