Hey, totally my kinda tag here folks! Yippee! HealthPsych has listed her own music loves and has tagged me to do the same. I love this!
So here are the rules:
List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Live Journal/blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.
1. Pink. Don't know the name of the song, but it goes:
If someone said, Three years from now, you'll be long gone/I'd stand there and punch them out etc etc
2. David Bridie. The most underestimated musician in Australia. Had a yap to him in a hotel lobby in Brisbane two weeks ago. Still low key, still political, and still unique. (Also still very gorgeous). The song, Kerosene is from his first solo album, Act Of Free Choice. It's just a beautiful song. Here he is:
Now that is a face. Completely unpretentious and approachable, David's just flipping fabulous.
3. AC/DC I grew up because of those guys, leave me alone. The song is Baby Please Don't Go, I remember seeing this on Countdown in the 70's and I found it again on YouTube. It is even funnier now. Bless their rock'n'roll hearts.
4. White Stripes Seven Nation Army. What can I say, these people are the essense of freaking cool and this song rocks.(And I'm talking to myself at night because I can't forget/Back and forth through my mind behind a cigarette)
5. James Blunt Wisemen (Edited)
Really sorry, they weren't to know, they got caught up in your travelling show...Those 3 wise men they've got a semi by the sea... Gotta ask yourself the question, Where Are You Now?
James Blunt himself being an intriguing mix of English arrogance, talent, profanity and beautiful, almost corny lyrics. Love this song, trying really hard not to play it to the death.
6. John Butler Trio BetterMan. Classic heartbreakingly good song. US born, out of fate and circumstance ended up in Western Australia, from California, as a child. Then his father gave him a guitar. Rest is history. Best live band I've ever seen. (photo from Jan 8 2005 article in The Age newspaper).
7. Hmmm. Dunno.
Will link to more relevant sites when I get over the fact that the 3rd Term of the 2006 school year has just ended and now we are on holidays.
Tomorrow, I will pack the car, load the kids in and drive south to camp for a week at Woody Head, a camping ground in the Bunjalung Nation. (Aboriginal tribe whose nest spreads from Grafton north to where we live - Tweed Heads - a few hundred kilometres all up).
From there, I plan to lie on a towel on a beach for 7 days straight, looking at a sky that still looks way too big, even though I've been under it since birth.
Only to return to annoy you all once again...
Cheers, see you then.
I tag Lael! I tag Lael! I tag Lael!
