i got tagged. with my very first meme.
my admirable fellow knitter and internet buddy sharon tagged me yesterday with it, and here it is:
List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what they are. They must be songs you are presently enjoying. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.
okay. here goes...you know, for someone who's life has basically revolved around music, i found this difficult, but without further ado and in no particular order of importance:
1. "Nowhere With You"-- The Joel Plaskett Emergency
this is probably the most dubious entry...i first heard this song on a tv commercial for, of all things, Zeller's department store last spring...aaack!!...i know, your first instinct is to laugh, but this tactic actually garnered a whole lot of fame and publicity for a group called The Bedouin Sound Clash the year before. Dunno about these guys as far as the fame and fortune thing, but this song is really catchy and infectious, how wrong can you go with lyrics like these:
Hey goodlookin! Why the frown?
You always look better when it's upside down
You say you've got nowhere that you're going to...can I go nowhere with you?
they are a group from Halifax, and they have that East Coast feel to them.
2. "Home"--Michael Buble
his voice is like velvet, the first time i heard this song i was in tears before the end of it because it was so beautiful. in this world of talentless composite 'singers' that have to have their voices run through filters and machines just to make them sound half decent, this guy stands so far out it's not even funny.
3. "Death on Two Legs"--Queen
it's Queen...nuff said. i love to listen to 'a night at the opera' while i'm doing dishes or cleaning the kitchen...in my opinion it's one of the best albums ever, right now i most love to belt out 'death' while i'm scrubbin the pots.
4. "Bad Timing"--Blue Rodeo
i love this song, so poignant, so personal, and it reminds me of things in my past and how they are better left there.
5. "I Will Follow You Into The Dark"--Death Cab For Cutie
the power of the internet is fierce. i wouldn't have even known about this song unless i had seen the link for the video on flutter's blog. they mention my hometown in their song, who wouldn't love them?
6. "Fall At Your Feet"--Crowded House
i was a massive fan of both C.H. and Split Enz in my angst-filled adolescence, what can i say, i still am.
another song i love to belt out in the kitchen, this guy's got some pipes.
and now for the tagging....i guess anyone that wants to be tagged can consider themselves tagged, and most specifically, Pammy, if you are reading this, you've been tagged. Luv, me :o)
