Three favourite bands and three favourite photos!
Third favourite band: MGMT
I was going to say something else, because MGMT hasn’t been with me for as much time, and they don’t mean nearly as much to me as say A Perfect Circle or Norah Jones do, but MGMT takes the number three spot because unlike the other bands I could list or will list, they don’t have some mysterious aura around them, they make fairly simple (but catchy, fun and wonderful music), a lot of the time, not always however (see: mystery disease), and are great for what they do.
I don’t really want to get into the “How did you get into the band” story, but here goes.

Yes, that’s right, I had a moment of shallowness and decided to listen to a song because I saw the singer. That song was Congratulations, and I was shocked to find a song with a great tune. I had heard of them once or twice, but within a day I had gone and bought two of their CDs. This is, so far, the only artist I have begun to listen to because of an attractive member, and I don’t regret it. I found a wonderful, meaningful, great, band.
Don’t let the hype of songs like kids or Time to Pretend throw you off (great songs by the way), once you give them an honest listen, I guarantee you enjoyment.
