Blood sucking in the UK

A conversation with Hala (16), Kareema (12) and Miriam (8) tell me about music…

IL: We had plans to see MJ together!!! How dya feel about his music?

HED: still listen to him but not as much as before

IL: How long ago were you a big fan?

HED: When I was eight years old, his dance moves and moonwalk -that’s what intrigued me -just his dance. I was watching the “Motown 25”.

Il: Now it’s all about Miley, right?

HED: No… her music sounds all the same. Too poppy

IL: MJ is obviously much better. So if not Miley what?

HED: Yeah of course he is much better.

IL:But… who do you listen to now.

HED: Muse… theyre alright looking, and I like their image.

IL: I noticed a lot of Twilight songs, does Rob Pattinson

HED: Yes he does?

IL: He looks like an anemic bat.

HED: He is supposed to look like an anemic bat, he’s a vampire in Twilight you know.

IL: Miriam, who is your fave singer?

MED: Miley Cyrus.

IL: Why?

MED: Because she sings good, and because the movie has a good plot.

HED: Right back to me now…

IL: Right, whats on your Ipod?

HED: Radiohead -a bit weird but good. Linkin Park, Rihanna…

IL: Sing “Ella”

HED: No. The Black Ghosts “Full Moon” Mutemath…

IL: Ugh.

HED: Iron and Wine

IL: Where do you hear about music.

HED: Friends, school, the internet…

IL: Any music you particularly like…? Hip Hop?

HED: Anything but Miley. I like the “Twilight”soundtrack and the books too.

IL: All the posters in your room?

HED: Me and Kareema’s.

IL: Do you listen to your parents music.

HED: Abba, MJ, “You Can’t Touch Me@ Arabic music…

IL: Arabic is good dance music…

MED: I like High School Music and 17 Again…

HED: 90s Music: Ricky Martin, Aerosmith…

IL: I notice you bought Spice Girls…

HED: I hate the Spice Girls, I thought I liked them but I don’t…

IL: How much is a song here?

HED: Itunes cost 79 pence, about a buck forty.

IL: Have you ever been to a concert?

HED: Never… we were going to see MJ then mum found out and now he’s dead…

IL: If you could see anybody live…

HED: (long pause) Not Robert Pattinson.

IL: Madonna,

HED: I hate Madonna. Paramore…

Med: My faves are “Hoedown Showdown” “The Climb,” “Womanizer”…

IL: Mirian, does it bother you that you’re the only one who likes Miley now…

MED: No… I hate “Twilight” I think he’s ugly…

IL: Hala, I just played you “Thug Story” did you like it.

HED: Yeah, I like T-Pain and I like Auto Tune.

Kareema (12 years old) what’s your fave music?

KED: Rock music, I like Linken Park, no Miley: I hate her. I like”The saturdays” -they do that song “Up” also Girls Allowed.
