The Big Picture's Musical Meme

List ten songs that you are currently digging. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're no good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artists, and the ten songs in your blog. Then tag five other random people to see what they're listening to.

I will admit that I cannot be as organized as Mary P and list the album and track. I am all about MP3's.

1. Tannhauser Overture
Artist: Richard Wagner

2. Ramble on
Artist Led Zeppelin

3. Fevered
Artist: The Stills

4. La Vie En Rose
Artist: Edith Piaf

5. Ziggy Stardust
Artist: Bauhaus

6. The Hindu Times
Artist: Oasis

7. Motorway to Roswell
Artist: The Pixies

8. Road to Nowhere
Artist: The Talking Heads

9. Underground
Artist: Tom Waits

10: I can't put my Finger on it
Artist: Ween

If you want to tag yourself...be my guest! Sometimes a random tag is like a sales call. So, play if you wish!

Mary P is not organized. Mary P is a luddite who doesn't own an MP3 player. Her son has one, her sweetie has another. I have the stacks and stacks of CD's.

Music is so great! All the artists, except The Pixies, are familiar to me, but I couldn't hum a single one off the top of my head. I'm sure I'd recognize a bunch, but sing 'em cold? Can't do it. (La Vie En Rose lurks just out of the range of my consciousness, though, but perhaps it's only that it happens to be the name of my favourite lingerie store.)

I am so bad with music. I know lots of songs when I hear them, but I have no idea the name of the song or the artist. How dull is that? I do not own a MP3 or an I-pod. It sounds like a good idea, but also another thing I can become addicted to. SO, I continue to listen to songs by Disney Channel kids on my car CD player and listen to the cable system's HIT MIX digital music channel at night and when the kids aren't begging for Radio Disney.

I've been singing the Talking Heads 'Life in Wartime' a lot recently, for no good reason--and actually, with the current state of things today, it's a pretty creepy song.

But YAY for the Talking Heads!

Yay! for 2 and 5!

9 - commiserations.

6 - haven't heard it, but I'll look out for it.

I can't imagine a life without a head full of music. Sometimes 10 different tunes in a day.

PS I've never understood, how exactly does one tag someone? I would tag myself, but my father always warned me about that.

I didn't know what an MP3 thing was till a couple of weeks ago. We've got a sound system here but I've never learned to work it right. Last thing I listened to on it was Lama Gyudpa's "Dhakang" from Kopan monastery in Kathmadu. Now, there's gong bashing and there's gong bashing! Hotboy

"anti-meme vaccine"...lol!

I got hit by a meme this year. I think I have natural immunity.

But now I want to pull out some old LZ 8-tracs. How's that for old-fashioned?
