Tagged by kernezelda, and yeah, it's taken me a while to get round to it.
List seven songs you are into right now. It doesn't matter what the genre is, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now.
Some of these are quite old, but I have a very strange mix of stuff on my MP3 player. These are all tracks I'll hit replay on at least twice when they come up.
- Democracy by Leonard Cohen
I love the words and the drums--I'm a sucker for drums--and Cohen's deep voice really suits this song.
- Surrender by Jami Sieber
This is my favourite from the wonderful Lush Mechanique album, all Jami's electric cello with wordless vocals and tribal drumming. I should get my hands on more of her stuff.
- Into the West by Yulia Townsend
LOTR! And I like how she goes shiveringly low at the end.
- Bolero by Ravel
I don't care how often I hear this or whether people think it's done to death: the driving rhythms working up to the climax never get stale, and having a bit of it on the Doctor Who ep wImpossible Planet as a very cool bonus.
- She's My Girl by The Jews Brothers Band
Funny, geeky, klezmery, ya gotta love it! And I have a soft spot for another track, Mordechai (What a Guy!), for the best rhyme under difficult conditions.
- The Lucky One by Alison Krauss
This is the song that got me into her stuff a couple of years ago when I heard it on the radio, and I still like it.
- In the Lap of the Gods by The Alan Parsons Project
And oldie but a goodie. If one of my unwritten novels was ever filmed, I want this as the theme. Yeah, this is the third instrumental here (plus wordless vocals) but I do like them. Damn, I should have fitted Bowie's Warszawa in there but I was trying to find more songs since the meme asked for them.
