FQ Topic: Musical

FQ1: Do you play any musical instruments or have any musical talents? Whose musical talent would you most like to have?
I learnt to play the recorder as a kid, and the very basics of keyboard.  I have a *tiny* bit of musical talent that I got from my dad.  But really not very much.  I remember one of the most amazing things I ever saw by a talented musician was called "Five Notes".  It was at a show and she asked for five musical notes, and then a list of composers.  She then proceeded to improvise a tune based on those five notes, in the style of five different composers.  Just amazing.

FQ2: What was the last musical event you attended?
Gosh that took a bit of digging up!  It would have been Phantom of the Opera on my birthday in 2013.  The last band I saw would have been 1927 in 2012.

FQ3: Give it up... to which musician would you most like to have an "all access pass" for the night?
Traditionally David Bowie.  But then he got old, and he straightened his teeth - boring!

FQ DARE: Reveal a musical artist or group that you are embarrassed to like.
I think I probably said Abba last time, although that's not that unfashionable anymore.  Maybe Katy Perry?  Although "like" is stretching things a little - I got her Complete Confection cd because I kinda liked the sound of a few of her songs, but really never learnt any of the songs very well.

FQ CHALLENGE: Mention the above artist or group in a comment you leave on some other blog, then provide the permalink URL where we can find it! (No fair lying about how much you think they suck and no cheating by leaving the comment on somebody else's FridayQ entry!). Extra creativity points for somehow working them into a completely unrelated conversation.
ok so I didn't get the extra creativity points, but here's my link.

Compare with last time ...

Happy to have provided an assist there.

I would've been more impressed if the last band you saw was 2012 in 1927. You're an old soul. ;-)
