Meme: 7 songs right now


Having been tagged over at August Street, here’s 7 songs on my playlist at the moment:

  • 1. Back o’ the Moon – 10000 Maniacs (I couldn’t find that on Mixwit, so I put on Trouble Me instead, which is a lovely song). Currently singing along to their album ‘The Wishing Chair’ in my car.
  • 2. Saint John – Cold War Kids. The ‘Robbers and Cowards’ album is on my i-pod.
  • 3. Let my love open the Door – Pete Townsend. Also on my i-pod, just ’cause I like it.
  • 4. Hospital Beds – Cold War Kids. See #2. "put out the fire boys, don’t stop, don’t stop…"
  • 5. Valerie – Amy Winehouse. Amy was on that Nelson Mandela concert last week…one of the few performers there that I was actually interested in watching.
  • 6. Bananas and Blow – Ween. ‘White Pepper’ was in my car before 10000 Maniacs, and this song is a nice tropical holiday number…which is good when your car dies at the traffic lights in the rain. (Sorry for the bad quality of this one, I could only find a live version.)
  • 7. The Mariner’s Revenge Song – The Decemberists. One you either love or hate I guess. This is on my i-pod and has been a favourite for months now, every time it pops up on the play list, I inwardly jump for joy.

What’s a meme without a tag? Everyone can do it, but specifically Curly Pops, Big Cat, Polka Dot Rabbit, Kootoyoo, Kitty’s Kaboodle, 62 Cherry and Ethel Loves Fred, give it a go please.

    Love Amy Winehouse – amazing songwriter and performer. I find myself defending her all the time, one pre-school Mum was shocked that Parker and I listen to her in the car! I told her that we can appreciate the music, without knowing too much about her private life, cause it’s not about that, it’s the music! And genius is not medicore, else she’s be married with kids, and doing the ironing right now! Bet said PS Mum doens’t have a problem with Britteny though!

    Nice selection … me love Amy Winehouse too.

    Something here’s really stunned me – I had no idea that THAT was 10000 Maniacs, I’ve heard them so often and always loved them, but no idea who they were. Now I know who they are! Ta.

    Thanx for playing. I knew you’d like a music meme. I really should have a crack at making a mixtape one of these days. It’s sheer brilliance.
