Seven Songs

I've been memed, again, by Richmond.

I am supposed to:

list seven songs I am 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. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.

Ok, that sounds easy enough. I have an ecclectic mix of music I like to listen to so here goes:

A Living Prayer: Alison Krauss and Union Station - something about her voice charms me. I love that you can feel her emotion right through the song.

Good to Go: John Corbett (Ian on My Big Fat Greek Wedding) - surprisingly engaging tune. Plus, he is completely day-pass material even if a little scruffy these days.

If Six Was Nine: Jimi Hendrix - an all-time favorite of mine. I listen to it when I'm really pissed off - like today!

My Humps: The Black Eyed Peas - what can I say? I like to shake my ass.

The Hair soundtrack because I've loved it since I was a wee bebe, and because Treat Williams is also day-pass material.

Nobody Gonna Tell Me What To Do: Van Zant - cause it's .38 Special meets Lynyrd Skynyrd and because no one tells me what to do.

Folsom Prison Blues as done by the Reverand Horton Heat. Cause it makes me giggle. Also, because I love their stuff, especially "Eat Steak" and "F**ked Up Ford"

Oh, and to add some more, cause I never do anything I'm suppossed to do:

Someone to Watch Over Me: Ella Fitzgerald or I've Been Loving You- Otis Redding. It hits me at my core. I love this song. I started loving it back in 1993 when Susy Amis' character sings it in a southern blues joint in the movie Rich in Love. I love it still.

I'm not tagging anyone, I'm just gonna go listen to some Otis and think about what I might greet my hubby with tonight! *wink, wink*

I didn't John Corbett could sing...! I don't care for his style... or his voice while singing... but he's definitely day pass material!

And THANKS, now all I can hear in my head is... "Whatcha going to do with all that junk, all that junk inside your trunk..."

I LOVE that Hair soundtrack. What a great movie too. I must have seen it a million times!

Now see, that wasn't such a bad tag.... ;)

And I got to learn that John Corbett sings too?!? Holy crap! And I thought he couldn't get any more attractive...
