Ok, time to write something without the use of pictures or captions. However, this is another meme that’s floating about on many of the lovely blog pages I’ve been visiting. (Spotted on Actually Mummy)
I haven’t been tagged or anything, so I’m kind of just gatecrashing my way onto the bandwagon.
However, the idea was simply to stick your generic music player on shuffle and list the first five tracks that come up. No cheating.
Of course, I’ll have no embarrassing songs coming up on my phone (mostly because I’ve only selectively put the good ones on there in the first place, lol) Ok here goes…..
- Oasis – Some Might Say
- Elbow – Hotel Istanbul
– Graffiti Maximo Park
- The Jam – Bitterest Pill
- Massive Attack – Tear Drop
There you go no probs. How cool am I?
Oasis from back in the good old days, when life was fun, hedonistic and certainly child free.
Elbow’s rare B-side off a limited edition Grounds For Divorce CD. Has to be noted as superb. Lyrics such as “pissed I just insist that no-one cares, as love has gone and thrown me down the stairs”
Maximo Park reminds me so much of being on a school trip to
, but I think I was about 34 when it came out. One day I’ll move on from that first love. I will. France
The Jam I haven’t heard for ages, forgot it was on there to be honest. Think I got into them after Paul Weller’s resurgence in the mid nineties.
Massive Attack speaks for itself. “Love, Love is a verb. Love is a doing word” If only we could remember that.
Ok, I’ll do the same again but this time off my computer media player.
- Eternal featuring BB Williams – I Wanna Be The Only One
- Madness – House of Fun
- Sash –
- Simple Minds – Speed Your Love to Me
- Echo and The Bunnymen – Silver
Well at least we finished off with a classic. EATB are immense, and without doubt one of my all time favourite bands. As for the others, well I do have a voluminous amount of stuff on there, so I’m just counting myself lucky it wasn’t Bananarama, Shania Twain or James Blunt that came up. Where would my street cred have been then?
