Rohanna- Lee Henry, Camerin Gedris, and Britton Maranto.

I (Nicole Willis) had the opportunity to interview three PVHS students about their taste in music. I found that students from a variety of backgrounds had interesting things to say about what they listen to, and why they do so. I had a chance to listen to some of the songs they mentioned, and was not disappointed.

 

I first interviewed a cheerleader, on the yearbook committee, who’s in her junior year of high school.

 

TTW: What’s your name?

BM: “Britton Maranto.”

 

TTW: Are you involved in any extracurriculars at PVHS?

BM: “Cheer and Link Crew!”

 

TTW: What’s your favorite genre of music? Why?

BM: “Alternative pop mostly. Because I like the groovy, but upbeat songs that aren’t super mainstream.

 

TTW: Does the music your parents listen to have an affect on your music taste? What do your parents music listen to?

BM: “Not really. They listen to manly 80’s music, and I’m not big fan.”

 

TTW: What’s your favorite song that wasn’t released in this century, why?

BM: “Probably “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Africa,” because they’re fun to sing with friends on roadtrips.”

 

TTW: What’s your favorite song right now, why?

BM: “”i’m  so tired…” by Troye Sivan. It’s just a really good song for any mood.”

 

I also interviewed a friend of mine, the school’s Drama Club President, who’s always ready for a meal.

 

TTW: What’s your name?

CG: “Cameron Gedris.”

 

TTW: Are you involved in any extracurriculars at PVHS?

CG: “Drama, wrestling.”

 

TTW: Which artist can you not stop listening to right now, why?

CG: “Alec Benjamin. His music is catchy and interesting.”

 

TTW: If you could only listen to one song for the rest of the year, what would it be and why?

CG: “ “If I Killed Someone For You” – Alec Benjamin, it’s deep and doesn’t get boring.”

 

TTW: What song do you listen to – to put you in a better mood?

CG: Gryffin – Winnebago ft. Quinn XCII, Daniel Wilson. It’s a carefree and easy song.

 

TTW: What song do you listen to; that you consider a “guilty pleasure?” Why do you consider it so?

CG: My “guilty pleasure” – anything Bryce Vine.  It’s rap, which isn’t something I usually listen to.

 

TTW: What’s your favorite song that wasn’t released in this century, why?

CG: Brandy – Looking Glass. It’s a funny song.  

 

I had the opportunity to interview the nicest person I know, who is a violinist in the school’s orchestra. She is apart of color guard, too.

 

TWW: What’s your name?

“Rohanna-Lee Henry”

 

TTW: Are you involved in any extracurriculars at PVHS?

“Spanish Honor Society, Drama, Society of Women Scholars, Color Guard, Link Crew.”

 

TWW: What genre of music do you dislike, why?

“I dislike heavy metal music, because it’s not my style, and I don’t really vibe with it.”  

 

TTW: What’s your favorite song that wasn’t released in this century, why?

“ “At Last” by Etta James. She has such a soulful, luscious voice & the composition is so rich with a unique style. I love hearing an orchestra in popular music. The song just hits in a different way.”

 

TTW: What is one of your favorite sad songs, why?

“One of my favorite sad songs is “Impossible” by Shontelle, because it’s one of those songs that you can belt at the top of your lungs.”

 

TTW: Is music an important part of your life? In what way does it affect you?

“Music is something that defines me as a person. It’s in my family, everyone sings, or plays an instruments, and it makes me feel blessed to be able to experience it and share it with others.”

TTW: Someone hands you aux cord – what song do you play first, why?

“An early 2000’s hit, because everyone will know it- we’ll all be dancing, singing to a bop, and we’ll connect on a nostalgic level.”
