A First for Me

I have been tagged! I'm not even sure what a meme is or if this is one, but yay! Cherrye tagged me for the "Seven Songs for Life" thingy. Let's see how I do.

It is very hard for me to narrow my favorite music down to seven. I love music. All kinds, with the exception of most rap and country (I know that is sacrilege coming from a Texan, but there it is. hey I can tolerate it - just not my favorite).

Music has always been an important part of my life. From a very young age, I used to run to the piano after commercials to "play" them.lol I grew up singing and taking piano lessons and even went to college on a music scholarship. I am lucky in my marriage as my husband also loves music of all kinds and there's always something playing in the background in our household. Having said that here we go...

(These are in no particular order)

#7 Video Killed the Radio Star (The Buggles). I LOVE this song. =) Call me a big nerd but who can NOT sing at the top of their lungs when it comes on? And come on, it makes you happy!

#6 Are You Gonna Be My Girl (Jet). Makes me drive fast and play the "steering-wheel drums"

#5 Crash (Dave Matthews). Sexy song. no need to say more..hehe *

#4 Enjoy the Silence (Depeche Mode). Brings back many fond memories of 80s dancing.

#3 Hey Jealousy (Gin Blossoms). I thought I was so cool listening to the Gin Blossoms in college. Very alternative you know.

#2 Are You Gonna Go My Way (Lenny Kravitz). The coolest video of its time. Hearing this immediately transports me back to my favorite college apartment with my fun roommate and the cute boys across the courtyard. =)

#1 Via Con Me (Paolo Conte). I love his songs. His sound is so European. Makes you just want to sit in a cafe and smoke a cigarette (maybe I'll just hold one cuz I'm allergic to smoke)

Ok so there are 7. It is just a small sampling of all the classical, rock (old and new), alternative, jazz, classical, soundtracks, international and yes, even musicals - that we have in our possession in various forms. Now, if I understand this correctly - I have to tag some fellow bloggers. Let's tag Cyndy, Sara, Tracie, Sara, Rowena and Avery. Am I supposed to let them know I wonder? oh well, I'm winging it.

* For the sake of not repeating sognatrice I also really love Iris (GooGoo Dolls) and Everybody Hurts (REM)

More later...

Looks like we could be stranded on a desert island together with our 7 songs and get along just fine!

And just so you know, you were thisclose to being tagged on my meme, so I'm so happy that Cherrye got you ;)
