I is for Imagine Dragons

As I mentioned in my theme-reveal post, this month will be all about music and how it inspires my writing.

This is a very recent acquisition to my playlists. I only started to pay attention to Imagine Dragons after a friend added two songs to a playlist she gave me. (I needed new music… apparently mostly listening to Linkin Park isn’t a good thing.) “Radioactive” is now a staple in my writing about fae in the human realm playlist. (It even features in “Dark Desires”.)

Favourite album: “Night Visions” Favourite song: “Thunder

Strangely enough, I don’t have other artists/bands starting with an “I” on this hard drive… I will make it a mission to go and check through my CDs and other hard drives in storage to see if I have anything else. So weird… I think I might have a CD from Indecent Obsession hidden away somewhere. This is fun: I haven’t updated my music library in a while, sticking to minimum songs on the new PC (well, I’ve had it for a year now, but it still feels odd compared to my previous awesomeness).

Word of the day: ictus

According to Collins English dictionary: ictus n 1 prosody metrical or rhythmic stress in verse feet, as contrasted with the stress accent on words

Do you like Imagine Dragons? Do you have a favourite music group/artist that starts with an “I”?

  1. I love that band Imagine Dragons. Florence and the Machine, Needtobreathe, Two Steps for Hell album Sky World, Future World Music, Epic North, X-Ambassadors, Counting Crows… All have some similarities that draw me to their sound.

  2. Oooh! I know a thing!!!
    The radioactive song was supposed to be for Spiderman (I think the play), but they didn’t use it, so the band made a few changes and now look who is super famous. Snap.

  3. Ronel,

    Imagine Dragon is still riding the high wave in the mewsic industry. ‘Radioactive’ topped the charts in 2012, along with ‘Demons’. They released a couple of new songs this year but I’m not too impressed with them. I think the last ones I recall being pAwesome are ‘Believer’ and ‘Thunder’ from 2017. I wonder if they are on a downward slope. I’m gonna be honest, the only ‘I’ artist that came to mind is Julio Iglesias and then his boy, Enrique. I checked with Google for more mewsicians. These are the ones I’ve heard of before – Ice Cube, Billy Idol, Iggy Pop, Ike Turner, Natalie Imbruglia, Ink Spots, Iron & Wine, Iron Maiden, Chris Isaaks, & Burl Ives. A few of the others from kissthisguys.com sound familiar but without checking further I didn’t include them. I’m surprised how many did ring a bell with me. 🙂

    I is for Intertidal Zone in my Little Mermaid Art Sketch series

  4. I discovered Imagined Dragon very recently too, but I really really like their music. It’s energetic and still evocative… if it makes any sense.
    One of my favourite bands at the moment.
