We asked Waterparks' Awsten Knight to talk to us about why we're all here - music - this month. Here's a taste of what he told us in the latest Rock Sound magazine.
THE SONG THAT SUMS UP WHERE I AM IN MY LIFE
BEYONCE - ‘LEMONADE [the WHOLE DAMN ALBUM]’ “I picked this one because I relate to a lot of the songs. Jay Z keeps breaking my heart and it’s seriously exhausting! Also, you gotta say that lemonade is good. Heavy shout out to the lovely-ass strawberry lemonade at HEB [it’s a shop in Texas].”
THE SONG I WANT PLAYED AT MY FUNERAL
MICHAEL BUBLE - ‘ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU' “I got this nailed! It’s a song for any situation you can think of in life.
"It’d bum everyone out at my funeral which, in a weird way, I kind of like. Imagine all those people sitting there listening to ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ while I’m just laying there, dead, being like, ‘What’s going on?’
"This is also my go-to karaoke jam all year round, I’ll sing it anywhere. Just not at my funeral, because… obviously.”
THE SONG THAT WOULD BE MY WRESTLING ENTRANCE MUSIC
KENNY G - ‘WAITING FOR YOU’ “I would just play elevator music and come in naked – that’d be my gimmick. Nobody’s done that yet, right?
"I’d also walk in as creepily as I possibly could, to freak my opponent out. They wouldn’t know where to look, where to try and grab me or anything, I couldn’t lose.”
Dive even further into Awsten's mind and music collection (if you dare) in this month's Rock Sound.
