*George Forman voice* I was tagged!
Jamie over at 10 Signs has invited me to do one of those meme things, and I'm happy to jump in on this one. It's a music theme and she's got some good taste in that dept. But what's 'meme' stand for anyway? something having to do with theme?
The last CD I bought was:
Billie Holiday--The Ultimate Collection. I also bought a new biography of her in the same Amazon order. I'm on a big Billie binge.
Song playing right now:
Halllelujah by Jeff Buckley. Soooo beautiful. I'd be tempted to cheat here if the song on was a dud, but, it's not. :-)
Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:
Oy, where to start...
1. "Sideways" by Citizen Cope--he could take up 4 of these;
2. "To Zion" by Lauryn Hill--I can't sing this song without crying;
3ish. "Luka" by Suzanne Vega and the version by the Lemonheads--I can't sing this one either without crying; is it cheating to put down both?
4 or thereabouts. "Heaven Right Here" by Jeb Loy Nichols
Along the lines of 5. "Dancing Barefoot" and "Gloria" by Patti Smith--oops, I think I cheated right there;
yes, 6. "4th of July" by X--I know, I'm cheating...
No cheating, you hear!
