For this weeks Blog Assignment, you need to create a "Top 5" post related to the topic of your blog. You need to come up with a list of the Top 5 ......... (plays, burgers, teams, places, images, vehicles, parts, manufacturers etc.)
For each of the 5 things listed, you need to write a sentence or two about what makes them great as well as include a picture or video of that thing.
I will give extra credit if a button with a link to a website or video is included with each item on your top 5 list.
See my example below:
Bucket List--Top 5 Bands I would like to see by age 35
1.) Shovels and Rope
This folk duo are so talented. If you simply listened to their music, it sounds like they have 5 people in their band...not just two! They swap instruments every song and are their lyrics are fun and uplifting.
2.) The Lumineers:
Since their first album release in , I have wanted to catch this band live. My brother in Colorado had the opportunity to see them when they were still pretty small. Either way, I'm sure they put on an amazing performance.
Although rap is not really my preferred style of music and I would probably stick out like a sore thumb at a concert, I believe this man is a lyrical genius. He addresses so many important issues through his words and does it well. I love that his overriding message is that of tolerance, peace, and love.
4.) The Avett Brothers:
I have had the opportunity to see this band many times. The first time was when they were just getting started...a crowd of 50...Now they are selling out stadiums. Although they are a very different sound than the previous artist, their values are the same. Their songs focus on family, and treating others with dignity and respect.
5.) Blitzen Trapper:
This Minneapolis band has been a favorite of mine for years. I got to see them at a music festival last summer, but a rainstorm came through and their set was cut short. That said, the few songs they could perform were amazing and I cannot wait until they come around again!
