I listen to TheWeeknd, Lady Gaga, Janet Jackson, 80s-00s pop music, R&B and sometimes modern pop music, what about you?
I can totally agree with this doll, honestly Michael has stolen my heart at the top of the list of course, although like I stated I have such an eclectic mix of artists, no matter how catchy or full of beats and all, Michael has it all for me lolMichael is the only "pop" I have ever listened to outside of a random indulgence in Lady Gaga's Joanne album a few years ago and a pandemic interest in Taylor Swift's Folklore album. Both are great albums, but neither interested me enough to start checking out their respective discographies otherwise. Since Michael, I legitimately barely listen to anyone else. I mean, only this summer have I started to here and there but I find too long listening to someone else makes me want to return to Michael lol. But prior to my MJ obsession here were my top people:
Bob Dylan, Josh Ritter, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels and Rope, The Tallest Man on Earth, Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, First Aid Kit, The Shins, CCR, The Band, and otherwise a mix of classic rock, random Americana artists, and 90s rock/alternative.
Given my tastes previously, it is baffling to me that Michael has won my heart so completely. I remember the first time I thought, "I love watching him dance, I should probably actually listen to his music..." I started listening to Off the Wall and I was like WHAT IS HAPPENING lol. I spent more time with Thriller, initially, because I knew more of the songs already. I wasn't INSTANTLY in love with his music (it took like 2-3 days lol) but because I loved watching him so much already, I just kept listening. Truly a 48-72 hour period before he was the only music I listened to. And before anyone asks, I ended up falling madly in love with Off the Wall, just as I have with every album of his
