Music Music Music

Rave tagged me with a music meme. Now I have to admit a couple of things before I get into this.

1) My music choices are very fluid. It depends on my mood for the day and where I'm at emotionally in my life at that moment in time.

2) By fluid I also mean varied. I love everything from classical to even, gasp, death metal. Now, understand I can't take either of those on a steady diet, but I've got more than a few songs in there that I really enjoy.

3) I'm a romantic sap. Mushy doesn't begin to cover it. I'm a sucker for a good love song. And I'm ALLLLLL about the lyrics and the harmonies.

So - knowing that - here are my TODAY answers to the Music Meme

Four songs that you could listen to over and over:
*When You Say Nothing At All- Allison Krause
*Wonderful Tonite - Eric Clapton
*Gallileo - The Indigo Girls - I LOVE the harmonies and the way the song builds on itself.
*Something to Talk About - Bonnie Raitt

Four songs that drive you up the friggin' wall:
*That DAMNED Chicken Song - Hate Hate Hate!!!! And it never fails - every time I hear just a snippet of it, the damned thing gets stuck on loop in my brain for DAYS!!! **Shit! Just posting this I caught myself hummin' it!
*Anything by Michael Jackson. ANYTHING.
*Gangsta Rap.

Four songs that you're embarrassed (or should be) to admit you like:
*You're Beautiful -James Blunt, I know I know over played and just sappy as hell. But I like it. hangin' head in shame
*Killing Me Softly - the Fugees.
*I Can See Clearly Now - it's the one song I will do in Karaoke. Even drunk you can hardly mess this one up.
*Delta Dawn - I used to sing it to my sister all the time, because she hated it soooo very much. Ahhh good times.

Four best driving songs:
*Lullabye - oh wait you mean best AWAKE driving songs - sorry....That's a tough one for me, seriously. So I'll say my favorite ARTISTS to drive to.
*Driving to Austin I was introduced to Clutch - and I liked 'em. Alot.
*Bonnie Raitt - cause I love to sing along.
*Van Morrison - same reason I like the singin' along stuff (singing along helps me stay awake)
*ZZ Top - One Word. Memories. Lots and lots of memories.

Four songs that make you cry:
*Dance with My Father Again - Luther VanDross, for obvious reasons
*True Companion - Marc Cohn
*I Can Only Imagine - Mercy Me, it touches the core of my faith, pure and simple
*I Can't Make You Love Me - Bonnie Raitt
*If Your Gone - Match Box 20 (hey, just tryin' to make up for the other short answers!)

Four best risqué songs:
*Tonites the Night - Rod Steward, I wrote the words to this out for my Mom on her one and only date since my father passed. She thought I wrote it and about beat me!! Hey - I was only 11 at the time!!!!
*I Touch Myself - Blondie* NOT - Sarah the Penquin points out it's really Divinyls
*Lady Marmalade - the Christina Aguilera - just cause she's such a "dirty girl"
*Damn - at a loss here......

Four best kid songs:
*Jesus Loves Me
*The Alphabet Song - just for the look on their faces as they sing it!
*One of These Things Is Not Like The Other - Sesame Street - my theme song as a kid
*Puff the Magic Dragon - hey! It's been so long since I've been around kids music I really gotta stretch for this one!

Four songs (hell, pick your own category and fill it in):
Ok - four favorite "songs you might not expect":
*There are Worse Things I Can Do - from Grease. I LOVE to sing this song. Love Love Love.
*Smart Woman(In a real short skirt) - Jimmy Buffett, back in my party days this was my theme song. :-)
*Pretty Fly for a White Guy - The Offspring. This almost went in the first batch - I just love this song.
*Walkin' in Memphis - Marc Cohn, not that this one is a surprise it just wouldn't be a list of my favorite music without it on there somewhere!!!

And the tagging: T1G - Mr. Music, Army Wife - Cause she actually admitted she LOVES these, Sgt Hook - because his taste is always excellent......and Jim over at Parkway Rest Stop - one of my favorite LIVE music makers.

NOTE: A GOOD blogger would have linked to all these songs - but hey, sometimes I'm just flat out lazy.

Comments time I see you, and we have drinks...I would like to hear one of these zz top memories...holy crap...

seriously wondering if there is a sharp dressed man or something to talk about...

zz top?

Delta Dawn, was the first pop song I think I learned...

I even would sing it with an accent, like Tanya Tucker, and I would sing it on the porch for all of the neighbors to hear...

with a stick for a microphone...

I always thought puff the "magic dragon" was about smoking grass...

grass...I am starting to sound older

AW? Yeah, why doesn't the whole Delta Dawn story surprise me at all? Hmmm....

Not to be a know it all or anything...but "I Touch Myself" is by Divinyls. Though I could see how someone might mistake those vocals for Debbie Harry of Blondie.

Just in case anybody wanted to get a copy of the song.
