This is Music

Only Dear Sir will understand the title to this post.
(I stole this meme from Lisa---how U2--Helter Skelter of me---see Rattle and Hum)

Favorite Song From Childhood: Probably "Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House, but anything from the 80's that isn't too cheesy is great.

Favorite High School Dance Song: Never went to the dances but once and then I didn't dance. I hate it.

Senior Class Song: Man, I really don't know and I don't care!

Favorite Rock & Roll Song: How about "Rock n Roll" by Led Zeppelin?

Favorite Disco Song: Don't like disco.

Favorite Country Western Song: Don't like country, but I do like that "You Move Me" song by Garth.

Favorite Pop Song: Nothing by the King of Pop, that is for sure---wait----I like "Billy Jean"

Favorite All Time Love Song: "Ice Cream" by Sarah McLachlan---but I can't think of anything else.

Favorite Break Up Song: "Honey Don't Think" by Grant Lee Buffalo

Favorite Slow Dance Song: Slow dancing is probably just as bad as fast dancing.

Song That Always Makes You Cry: "Breathe On Me" by Jennifer Knapp

Songs About Your Kids: Whenever I hear "Uncle Albert" by Paul McCartney (and Wings) I think of the kids. They LOVE that song...

Song That Reminds You Of Your Husband: There are tons. How about "Hey Bulldog" by the Beatles, or "Waa-Waa" by George Harrison, or "Killing a Dead Man" by Grant Lee Phillips or anything by Enya because we listened to her full blast on the way to the Oregon Coast for our honeymoon. It was raining and delightful. There's tons more. Anything by the Verve, Oasis (namely Masterplan). How about "Battle of Evermore" by Led Zep. "Say to My Soul" by me. (he is famous for loving that song--now isn't that nice?)

Favorite Christmas Song: "In the Bleak Midwinter"

Favorite Gospel/Praise Song: "Hear My Cry O God", "Holy is the Lord", "Humble Thyself", "I Will Glory in My Redeemer".

We're going to the Oregon Coast for our 20th anniversary. Maybe we'll listen to Enya on the way. We both like her music.

We did an arrangement of "In the Bleak Midwinter" in our christmas concert. People had NOT heard of it before!!! I am so happy to hear that someone else enjoys that song so much!

there will be no enya playing in my car....forever more. i applaud you for participating in this meme although you are very silly

Lisa said...

LOVE that you shared! *Thunderous Applause from the Peanut Gallery*

Enya music makes my soul bleed.

R said...

~Jennifer---I'm glad we inspired you!

Nat--I know, not many people know it. I was shocked to see that Sarah McLachlan had an arrangement of it on her new Christmas album. Dear Sir seems to think we are cut from the same cloth! :)

Susie---You don't like Enya because you like Creed and Nickelback. You are ONE OF THOSE.:)Also, I just woke up from a dream where I beat them up.

Lisa---Those are some strong words, my dear. Your "soul bleed"? Why?

Thanks for reading and inspiring!

other than the praise songs, i don't believe i've heard a single one of those. wow. you are what we call 'unique', but so am i, just differently so :-P

and i so stole this off you because it was interesting.

R said...

I am shockingly unique, my dear Graybandit?

I thought everything I liked was common! Ha ha.

I was listening to another good possible "break up song" on my ipod yesterday while running my miles. "Love Will Come Through" by Travis. Man, it is excellent. You should give that a listen. I will turn you into a UK music lover yet. Just no Robbie Williams.

Since I'm pretty sure I've got at least 20 years on anyone else here, I can't say that I'm too familiar with anything mentioned! Makes me feel ancient. I may steal this also and give it a try on my own - it will be different, that's for sure.

Maybe I should have just said that it is heart breakingly beautiful? :o)
