I got this meme from Stevyn, whose blog I read, enjoy and post annoying comments on.
"Punky - I hereby meme you (is that even a verb?!):
List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your Summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."
Gaah! Just seven songs? How about seventeen or seventy? I'll do my best to narrow it down to seven.
Shelter - Here We Go
Hardcore with great beat and great lyrics, such as "It's intense hope that makes us try". I can not get enough of this song. Here, here, here we go again!
H20 (featuring Matt Skiba and Lou Koller) - What Happened
New York hardcore veterans H2O remind us that it's about art and not image. Multitalented guitarist Rusty made the necklace that I wear every day.
Patti Smith - Because The Night
Because Patti Smith kicks ass. And this was one of the first songs I played on New Years Day.
Elvis Presley - Burning Love
Lord Almighty, I feel my temperature rising! I had to work this weekend, so I wore a hawaiian shirt, ate pineapple and blasted Elvis songs all day. Hey, only boring people are bored.
Christina Aguilera - Candyman
Who doesn't like a vintage flavoured song about a sweet talking, sugarcoated tattooed boy with charm?
Wanda Jackson - Fujiyama Mama
If Christinas song is a modern interpretation of swing and rockabilly then Wanda Jackson is the real deal.
Jimmy Eat World - The Middle
I recently listened to a bunch of mix cds I made a few years ago, and this song was on every single one. I guess I was trying to tell myself something?
Jimmy Eat World are what emo used to be before it became all about hipster haircuts, My Chemical Romance and panda eye-make up.
I don't like the concept of tagging others, since it reminds me of those crappy chain-letters I used to get when I was a kid. But if you're reading this and you wanna share your seven songs of the moment with the world, let me know and I'll tag you.
