A to Z Music Challenge - M is for Madonna, Alanis Morissette, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Matchbox 20, Marilyn Manson, John Mayer, Muse, Mumford & Sons, Michael Buble, M.C. Hammer & Miguel

M. This is a loaded letter. I'm thinking I should have capped the number of entries per letter or something. Sigh.

Madonna
Oh, Madge. I'd take you a whole lot more seriously if you'd drop that fake British accent and start to maybe have some sort of awareness of your age. I mean, don't get me wrong, she's in phenomenal shape, but I was nervous for her when she was trying to dance on the stairs at the Superbowl halftime last year. Watch out now, don't go breaking a hip. You know...at your age. Seriously though, I miss music like this. When she sang about controversy and social awareness instead of repetitive dance music.


Alanis Morissette
She's one crazy, vindictive chick, and I love her for it. Mental note: don't piss this one off. Like ever.


Bruno Mars
I'll be the first to admit that I didn't love him for a long time. He was almost too polished to be real. But then this song came out and this tiny little man weaseled his way into my heart.


Maroon 5
Adam Levine. There really isn't much else that I need to say here. So there's this. He should do all the things without a shirt.


Matchbox 20
Rob Thomas is a pretty talented dude. I love most of their music, even though it all kinda starts to sound the same eventually. As long as it starts out good, it ends that way.


Marilyn Manson
For as crazy as Alanis is, he takes it up a notch, slaps some black makeup on it, dresses it in patent leather and whips the hell out of it. He disturbs far more people than most musicians, but that just makes me like him more. The thing that all those people who are convinced he is evil can't seem to comprehend is that it's all an act, done to make a point, and they're all falling for it. Insert maniacal laugh.


John Mayer
He's a pretty boy, but he's a bad one too. He takes it to another level, and has earned himself one of the worst reputations in the industry when it comes to being a womanizer. Seems to be working so far. Oh, and he can play a wicked acoustic guitar, so there's that.


Muse
Easily one of the most musically talented bands of this generation, they never stop surprising me. They are a more familiar name now because of Madness, but I like this one better.


Mumford & Sons
My Irish brothers, I couldn't be happier that this genre of Celtic bar rock has finally made it to the mainstream. Banjos are sexy. Oh yes they are.



Michael Buble
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. He screams lounge singer/adult contemporary, but he's also adorable and insanely talented. I'm not sharing one of my favorite songs because you seriously need to love him for the SNL skit he did with Fallon.


M.C. Hammer
Who doesn't love Hammer???  No.One.


Miguel
I had to put him last so that I could go take a cold shower after I put this up here into the internets. Thank you, dear sweet baby jesus, that music execs are finally bringing acts like this back. Mama loves her some old school sexy r&b.
