By my decree


Retro Rock n’ Roll, originally uploaded by mandyrocksout.

And to justify my self indulgence, let’s make today ‘Blogtoberfest Fave Friday’! What’s one of your favourite songs ever? You Tube it or just tell us all about it and why you like it.
PS. If you play along with “love Fridays” don’t forget to do that as well.

PPS. I think I got around to nearly everyone in Blogtoberfest and commented…if I didn’t call by your blog, it’s because work blocked it as a “chatroom”…yes it does that to some blogs all the time. Particularly Linda and Anastasia. And yes, I should be working.

PPPS. I better do my own meme! This song makes me think of being a teenager in the 80’s, to me it’s the musical equivalent of one of my favourite films. I love the lyrics, the sense of yearning, loss and possibility it contains, and the Triffids were a great band. The vid is a bit naff, but hey, it was the 80’s.

One of my more recent faves would be this one.

    Ummm, a lot to choose from. Have many faves from many genres… Crap songs I will dance to at a wedding, soppy sings I will sing with the girls, memory songs, 80s INXS songs, etc… Maybe have to think about this…

    I will absolutely play along when I post later today! It’s a very favourite-y sort of Friday…

  10. 10 twocheeseplease Friday, October 17, 2008 at 2:04 pm

    Right now my faves are pretty much EVERYTHING from The Cat Empire, or “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. Such great almost-summer tunes!

    Thanks for letting me know about your Fav Friday, I missed it though as I was away from my computer. Hope you had fun!

  25. 25 The Crafty Librarian Saturday, October 18, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    Oh, great idea Steph! I’m not Blogtober-festing. October is just TOO busy. However, favourite song. Difficult one. I was driving in my car today and singing along with You Am I Saturday Night Round Ten – Heavy Heart and thought, well this song is just tops. I would kiss Tim Rogers if I saw him in the street…

  26. 26 Drewzel Saturday, October 18, 2008 at 10:50 pm

    I love Heavy Heart, it’s up there with my favourite songs!

  27. 27 Bec Monday, October 20, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    I’m so behind the times, I know. But I’ve just posted my current fave er…song…I think it counts as a song…
    Anyway, three days late but I’m hoping better late than never. Seems I’m late for everything these days *sigh*
    Thanks for popping by and putting the music theme into my head. I ended up doing my whole post on music-related stuff (and have spent WAY too much time on youtube today….)
    Cheers, Bec
