Although this blog's main preoccupation is my favourite actor, Richard Armitage, the second most interest (if you go by the tag cloud on the right sidebar) is music. So I thought it would make sense to have a musical birthday celebration of his favourite bands.
The interview is by Aubry D'Arminio from 2008, so his musical tastes have undoubtedly changed since then.
I have previously posted quite a large collection of RA fanvids done to Coldplay songs. I was thrilled to find them, as I really love that band's sound. But I was not as familiar with the other two groups mentioned. So, of course I needed to see if there were any fanvids set to those band's tunes!What’s your favorite music group? At the moment I’m really into Coldplay just because that last album was so good. But I’m really into Keane and Radiohead. The Feeling are great at the moment, I really like that band.
Bingo! Lovely fanvidders never disappoint me. I especially love the lyric to the following song "You Don't See Me" which seems appropriate to this fandom:
Oh, truly we are a fortunate few, who turn on your axis, revolve around you

music by Keane: "You Don't See Me"
The lyrics to this next Keane song are so heartfelt and seem somehow very appropriate for RA.

And here is the only fanvid I could find with a song by Radiohead.

Also I am glad he mentioned the name of the band The Feeling because (I'd never heard of them and) they were responsible for the song, Fill My Little World, which was the song they played right after Harry Kennedy and Geraldine Granger said their vows at the end of The Vicar of Dibley!
Here is a link to a clip, (I believe it will start at the beginning of the song).

If you wish to watch more of that clip just start it back at the beginning.
In one of his many interviews after the success of The Hobbit movie, Richard Armitage happened to mention that he enjoyed the music of Goyte. How excited he must have been to be one of the presenters at Australia's Aria Awards where he was able to hand over the Best Pop Release to none other than Goyte!
Last month fanvidder candy varty put Goyte's big hit together with some clips of RA's interviews and here is what she came up with!
