One quick announcement first. Angela posted another one of my poems on her blog entitled "The Lost Birds." Go check it out if you'd like!
Okay, I'm a little late coming to this...I signed up last night! I'll resume Medical Mondays next week. And if you haven't had a chance, please sign up for my Giveaway on the linky to the right!
Here's my list for Alex's Awesome Top 10 Countdown Music Blogfest.
Truth is, I can't really do just ten songs. I decided to hit a few favorites from different stages of my life. I really have a top 100, so, this is more of a snapshot than anything.
So, I'm not even going to number them. Sorry Alex!
Kate Bush: This Woman's Work.
So painfully beautiful! Her voice is crazy and boy does she have some bizarre videos out there, but she was a visionary. This one still makes me cry.
Depeche Mode: Question of Lust
I went through a huge Depeche Mode phase way back when, in conjunction with a wardrobe heavy on the black clothing. I love the glass bells in this song. OK, I know it's a synthesizer. I can pretend.
REM: Fall on Me/Find the River
Crap. I'd put twenty REM songs on this list if I could. I love these two. See? I'm already cheating the top ten concept.
Jason Mraz: Beautiful Mess
This song inspired a lot of writing in the last two years, so it makes the list.
It's the Pixies. 'Nuff said.
Sarah McLachlan: Time
She's got a lot of my favorites, but this one is poetry.
KT Tunstall: Other Side of the World
Oh man. All my favorite songs are so depressing! I'm not depressed. Really.
Echo and the Bunnymen: Bring on the Dancing Horses
The first tape I ever bought as a kid. Yes, I just dated myself. I was striving for alternative at a tender age. What a lovely song, though.
Billy Bragg and Wilco: California Stars
One of many fabulous songs by Woodie Guthrie. An amazing album.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Ship Song
What a voice. What a song.
So again, thanks for reading my list. I look forward to seeing your top tens! Hop away!
