Music Meme

Because you are all mean and horrible, I'm putting up a new meme.

1. What is your favourite song?
All Aroung the World (Myth of Fingerprints) by Paul Simon and Bleeker St by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Bleeker St is the most poetic song I know.

2. Favourite artist / group?
Paul Simon for artist, Steeleye Span for group.

3. What is your fav. Beatles song?
Hey Jude.

4. What song do you detest?
I've Got the Joy Joy Joy Deep Down in My Heart

5. What song encapsulates your teenage years?
Elf Child. Although I can honestly say they would not approve of the anime Elfs.

6. What song do you want to dance to / have sung at your wedding?
Love Is Like A Storybook Story (From the Princess Bride, which is clearly the most awesome movie ever).

7. What did you most recently listen to?
Straight No Chaser's 12 Days of Christmas

8. What odd instrument do you play / want to play?
The Harp. Music video to come.

9. Last musical event / concert you went to?
Verdi's Otello.

10. What do you want played at your funeral?
I've Got the Joy Joy Joy Deep Down in My Heart. I will have the joy because I will not be listening to it. There will be way cooler music in heaven.

11. Your 'social conscience' song?Blackleg Miner by Steeleye Span, and Streets of London, which I heard by the composer live in 2007 (I think) along with Steeleye Span.

12. What song sums you up? Why?
At the moment, probably Pussy Willow by Jethro Tull. But it'll change on my mood. I also considered having Feeling Groovy,which is about as different as you can get, ignoring the folk influences on both. What can I say? I'm mental.

Wow! Nearly all my stuff is Folk Rock! That is because Folk Rock is AWESOME!

1. My fave song is ‘The Zookeeper’s boy’ by Mew.

2. Favourite artists: Mew! Also Muse, Billy Talent, Greeley Estates, Hawthorne Heights, Jimmy Eat World… but especially Mew (Jonas Bjerre <3)

3. Fave Beatles song is Eleanor Rigby.

4. I passionately hate ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ by Wheatus. Why? Apart from hearing too often, it annoyed me that the kids at school who loved that song were also the ones who were mean to teenage dirtbags.

5. My teenage years are covered by ‘Nothing lasts forever’ by Jebediah.

6. Maybe we'll dance to ‘Decembers’ by Hawthorne Heights if I get married? The poor fool who marries me should have a say also.

7. I recently listen to ‘Pussy Willow' after clicking the link, but prior to that it was ‘Always’ by Greeley Estates.

8. Playing electric violin would be cool. Is that odd enough?

9. Last concert I saw was Muse in Adelaide last year.

10. I have a big song list for my funeral. ‘White lips kissed’ by Mew must be played.

11. Social conscience songs: ‘Nothing to lose’ by Billy Talent (it’s about bullying and suicide in teenagers) and ‘Forgotten children’ by Tokio Hotel (it’s about homeless kids). They make my heart ache.

12. ‘This is how it goes’ by Billy Talent sums me up. I tend to let people walk all over me and what happens is “So I hold my breath ‘til my heart explodes ‘cos this is how it is and this it how it goes”.

I want Sam to sing Whitney Houston’s ‘I will always love you’. I will probably change my mind later.

'If We Are The Body', by Casting Crowns

12. What song sums you up? Why?

Hey, Joab, speaking of musicals / concerts /etc, how was Wicked?

Rebecca said...

Hey I just listened to Whitney Houston sing 'I will always love you'. I have decided I don't want it sung at my wedding after all. Sorry Sam.

Sam-Is-Mad said...

What's this sorry business? I'm glad! I don't think I would be able to keep a straight face.
