Pop/rock from 1950s – present. In top 40, I love P!nk, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Sara Bareillis, Train, Adam Lambert, basically anything that makes straight guys' ears bleed. In classic rock, I like the kind of stuff Glee covers all the time. And I usually like Glee's covers, too. I'm also in love with symphonic metal (Nightwish is my favorite), indie folk rock, Celtic, and whatever Blackmore's Night is. Indie faves atm include The Indelicates, Felix Hagan, Purity Ring, Psyche Corporation, and Anais Mitchell. Saying Tegan and Sara seems redundant. I love scores from musicals, including animated ones. Rent, Wicked, and Mamma Mia take up a lot of room on my show tunes playlist. I <3 Spotify.
Smoked turkey. Do not omit the pickles.
