Day 1 - Ten random facts about yourself
Day 2 - Nine things you do everyday
Day 3 - Eight things that annoy you
Day 4 - Seven fears/phobias

Day 5 - Six songs that you’re addicted
Day 6 - Five things you can’t live without
Day 7 - Four memories you won’t forget
Day 8 - Three words you can’t go a day without
Day 9 - Two things you wish you could do
Day 10 - One person you can trust

Only 6 songs?? I'm a music addict, I'm pretty much always listening to something while I work, write, etc. So, in the interest of saving my sanity, let me go with 6 songs I'm currently obsessed with, in no particular order.

1. Walk the Moon - Shut Up and Dance (catchy, upbeat, fun)
2. Hozier - In the Woods Somewhere (I love that subtle beat in the background and the whole eerie atmosphere. Also, love the lyrics)
3. Air Traffic Controller - Hurry, Hurry (good beat, playful lyrics, pretty much the story of my life)
4. Autoheart - The Sailor Song (oh, that voice. so much love for that voice)
5. Olafur Arnalds featuring Dan Arnor - Old Skin (I love Olafur Arnalds, he is by far my favorite instrumental artist, and adding a guest singer makes me want to listen to it on repeat, over and over)
6. Banks - Beggin for Thread (another of those random things I just can't get enough of; it gets me moving)

I could go on forever. I did try to stick mostly to artists or songs that aren't as well known, rather than the standard radio stuff. Love it.

Real content? What's that?

This prompt is from an NPR article about music choices and how these choices give insight into your personality. Interesting thought.

What was the first song you ever bought? (And why)
I remember the first 2 CDs I bought; I bought them at the same time, even though they were so vastly different. The first was Lisa Loeb's Stay, and I loved that album from start to finish. I still do - enough that I've had to buy another copy, since my original one was scratched beyond recognition. The other was Green Day's "Dookie" - I bought that one more because I was trying to be cool, I think, though I did genuinely enjoy the songs.

What song always gets you dancing?
If I go out clubbing, I go to dance. It doesn't take much, honestly - anything with a good beat. I love to dance to music I wouldn't normally like: frilly, fluffy things like Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe", as well as harder, more industrial music. My absolute favorite, when I was clubbing regularly in the goth clubs, was Racer Car by FPU (the TGV Dub, not the original). Also, anything by VNV Nation and Wumpscut.

What song takes you back to your childhood?
It's cheesy and terrible, but I have a soft spot for Right Here Waiting by Richard Marx. I was a very sentimental, nostalgic child (still am, I suppose) who was quite unsettled by having to move around so much. One of my best friends disappeared overnight, and it traumatized me. I would daydream about finding him again, even years later.

What is your perfect love song?
My favorite is an obscure song called Gorecki by Lamb. I had planned to have it play at my wedding, but there were technical difficulties, so it didn't happen. I'm also a big fan of Iris by the GooGoo Dolls.

What song would you want at your funeral?
I have no idea. Probably something instrumental and dignified, like Crystallized Beauty by Philip Shepperd or Ljosid by Olafur Arnalds. I haven't given it much thought, though.

Time for an encore. One last song that makes you, you.
I give you my current favorite song of all time, the one I just can't seem to get tired of. Lovers in a Dangerous Time by the Barenaked Ladies. It has great voices, acoustic guitar, piano, and everything I love.

A bit of an advance book list, since the next few days are going to be insanely hectic...

Everyone has a collection of songs/bands no one else has heard: indie bands, amazing covers, and random finds that you love but no one else knows about. So how about an exchange?

The concept is simple: make a playlist of the most obscure, wonderful songs you have. It can be anything, so long as it's something you think is obscure or unknown... and it should be. Then trade your list (in CD format, or through an online mp3 sharing system, or some other way - this is wide open!) with friends. The only requirement: you must share the actual files, not just the names... cause it can be hard to find these obscure songs online!

Anyone interested? The more the merrier!

discovered through TheSixtyOne (thanks again [ profile] rylkat!), i present to you the talented Olafur Arnalds.


I've been listening to his song Ljosid over and over... only to discover that he's offering it up for free download, along with 6 of his other songs. one song a day, for seven days, just him and a piano.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now or just listening to. Post these instructions in your livejournal along with your seven songs.

1. La Vie Boheme (RENT). for some horribly, insanity-causing reason, this has been trotting around in my subconscious for weeks. i like the song, but good gods, enough is enough!
2. Things to Remember (Peter Murphy)
3. Tiefster Winter (L'Ame Immortelle)
4. Dust in the Wind (Linkin Park)
5. All for Love of One (Mediaeval Baebes)
6. Morag's Reels (Wolfstone)
7. The Hand that Feeds (NIN)

what a mix. =)

Nostalgia is hitting me fairly hard, and i'm trying my best to work past it and get my work done. *wry grin* needless to say, i'm not doing so well, as i'm typing this instead of my proposals for my papers. *sigh*

Recently saw the movie Chicago; i definately recommend it to anyone who enjoys Broadway musicals. very nice. went out and bought the soundtrack, which of course has me pulling out all my old Broadway CDs that i haven't listened to in a while. i think i might drive SG insane... =) I've also dug up several other bands that i enjoy but never got around to listening to more than a song or two... music is a wonderful distraction from homework, don't you agree?

You thought you could keep me from lovin'
You thought you could feed on my soul
While you were busy destroying my life
What was half in me has become whole...

oh, and Ford? "Disappoint" by Assemblage 23. the Funker Vogt remix is the closest i've found to what we usually hear. =)

okay, i'm bored, i admit. so here's a list of the 5 songs by bands no one but me (& 'fana) have ever heard of that i'm currently listening to. most of this stuff's a l'il weird, to say the least, but give it a try if you like anything strange! my only requirement is a good voice...

1) Beborn Beton - "Another World" -- currently a major hit at goth clubs, it's got a techno-y beat and interesting lyrics.
2) Kidneythieves - "Feathers (touched and forgotten remix)" -- becoming more popular due to their inclusion on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack, definately a great band
3) Lacuna Coil - "Purify" -- prob'ly my favorite band, everything off their latest album is great. female vocals on an almost-heavy-metal guitar
4) Scratching Post - "Nothing Left to Die For" -- lead singer has a very distinctive voice, works well with the happy-metal sound
5) Kristy Thirsk - "Run Away" -- her voice is just amazing. some of you may recognize her as the singer on most of the earlier Delerium stuff (mostly from the Karma album, though she's done other stuff with 'em). she's struck out on her own, though no cd as yet, only bootlegs and a cd she distributed while out on tour (somewhere in the lower US, unfortunately)
