It’s Not All Mary Poppins

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.

This meme courtesty of IEatCrayonz. Although I have not, nor ever expect, to be “digging” anything except perhaps in my garden. Child of the sixties though I may be, much of my time spent in that decade was spent in diapers and pre-verbal. But ten songs I like? No problem. The only problem will be keeping it to ten.

1. Right now I’m listening to Tracey Chapman, the New Beginning album. My favourite from that: Give me One Reason.

2. Album: Time Out
Group: The Dave Brubeck Quartet
Favourite Track: Take Five

3. Album: Sunshine on Leith
Group: The Proclaimers
Track: I’m Gonna Be (I would walk 500 miles)

4. Album: Genius of Modern Music
Artist: Thelonius Monk
Track: Round Midnight

5. Album: Shrek soundtrack
There are three tracks I love on this, and I’m counting them as one choice. Deal with it. I’m a Believer, Smash Mouth; Bad Reputation, Half Cocked; and my really, truly favourite: Hallelujah (written by Leonard Cohen), sung by Rufus Wainwright.

6. Album: A.J. Croce
Artist: A. J. Croce (yes, son of Jim)
Favourite: He’s got a way with Women (because it’s punchy, and because of the way the verse ends: “…and he just got away with mine”.)

7. Album: Wise and Otherwise
Artist: Harry Manx
Favourite: Only then will Your House Be Blessed

8. Album: Horn Concertos
Composer: W. A. Mozart
Favourite: Number 2 in E flat major

9. Album: Practical Man
Artist: Tom Lips
Favourite: Honesty; This Love is a Weed (Yes, I know this is two. See number 5.)

10. Album: Greatest Hits
Group: Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Favourite: I Won’t Back Down
