Gloria Jean tagged me because she said she wanted to know what her more sophisticated blog favorites were into musically. I'm not sure I've ever been described as sophisticated before so how can I refuse her?
I am to list seven songs that I am currently into regardless of genre or even if they have lyrics. Judging by her list they don't even have to be all that current. Just whatever I'm digging at the moment.
Since she called me sophisticated I could say...
Agnus Dei by John Michael Talbot and the Monks of Little Portion Hermitage
Sonata for Piano No. 14 in C sharp minor by Beethoven
Scheherezade by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Toccata and Fugue in D minor by J.S. Bach.......
Well, I dig all that but I'd be putting on airs if I listed that.
I could go the opposite end and say...
Louie, Louie by the Kingsmen
Randy Scouse Git by the Monkees
Excitable Boy by Warren Zevon
Peach Blossom Special by Charlie Daniels
I could get all folksy on you...
Dream a Little Dream of Me by Cass Elliot (How can anyone help but having sweet dreams after this song?)
Lemon Tree by Peter, Paul, and Mary
Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel
I could go 80s on you...
Kiss by Prince (Oh yeah, I don't care what any net quiz says, this is my 'stripper song,' hehehe)
Sharp Dressed Man by ZZ Top
Wrapped Around Your finger by the Police
I could get all worldly...
Rain Rain Beautiful Rain by Ladysmith Black Mambazo
I Will Find You by Clannad
Caribbean Party by David Rudder (Heck, I could list a boatload of Trini artists and steelbands....)
Ok Ok......you're getting sick of all this and there are a number of genres I haven't even covered.........but this is hard and I really do listen to all that stuff!
In no particular order, here's the current 7 that are running through my head or playing on my iPod...
Easy to Ignore by Sixpence None the Richer
Turn Me On by Norah Jones
She's Only Happy in the Sun by Ben Harper
Snakecharmer by Ottmar Liebert
I Know a Little by Lynyrd Skynyrd
Beautiful by James Blunt
Short Skirt, Long Jacket by Cake
Good is Good by Sheryl Crow
Musicology by Prince
(Yeah, I know that's more than 7, did I follow the rules anyway?)
I won't officially tag anyone, especially since I drove you all nuts by listing way more than 7 tunes. If you want to play along in the comments I'm always up for some new musical suggestions! What are you all listening to?
