When I get into these type of threads, I tend to have too much time to kill. And this is no exception. The weather has been straight up mayhem for the last week and it has eventually killed my motivation to do anything outdoor related.
I listen to just about anything, and can't say I have a specific taste. There are some songs and artist trending at different points in time though, and lately it seems these are getting the most playtime:
I'm not a fan of Sigrids own work, but she's a great singer and does some amazing covers. This is probably my favorite one, a live cover of a Norwegian hip hop song in a dialect so difficult I had to look up the lyrics to understand any of it myself. She does her own version and just nails it. The lyrics are quite meaningful once you understand them, so non Norwegian speaking listeners will obviously miss out on that dimension
Another artist that does great covers (in my subjective opinion) is Peter Buka. He might not be the most polished pianist, but there's a raw energy and passion there that's really enjoyable to listen to.
The rock genre is probably my favorite overall, and after Eddie van Halen sadly past away last year, my interest in van Halen had something of a resurgence. This still being my favorite
