Ack, Daniel‘s tagged me for the music meme! I had been staying away from this one because I haven’t been listening to music for weeks. I guess I’d better fill this in with what I was listening to before the craziness of exam studying set in.
Music Tag…THE RULES:
List five songs that you are currently loving. It doesn’t matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they’re any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying right now.
Post these instructions, the artists, and the songs in your blog. Then tag five other blogging friends to see what they’re listening to.
My five: (click to listen!) [originally I had these as MP3s, but I’ve changed them to video where available]
1. Lighthouse Family – “You’re a Star”
2. Dave Olney – “Nelly Was a Lady”
(from Happy Land: Musical Tributes to Laura Ingalls Wilder… hee hee!) (This grew on me; there’s a rustic plaintiveness to it that at first just sounds like “whiny and unpolished.” 🙂 )
3. Prince – “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man”
4. Donovan – “Jennifer Juniper”
5. Marc Cohn – “Walking in Memphis”
(Darn you Erik for not having your blog set up yet!!!!)
2. someone whose name will not be disclosed here who has a secret blog (*ahem* you’d better know who you are)
3. Kiyomi (though I feel like you’ve already done this–maybe just because you talk about music a lot in your journal?)
5. Lauren, in hopes that this will be a welcome break from med school, and not yet another accursed thing to do ;b

that was weird…
Friday we went to Marina and they played Donovan – Sunshine Superman. I thought that was weird. Asian people listening to Donovan? :]
Re: that was weird…
That is really weird.
Thank you for the tip on the LIW CD. I have one called “Little Music on the Prairie,” same theme, mostly different songs. I can hardly wait to get my hands on “Happy Land.”
I really liked this CD just because it was great to finally know the tunes for a lot of these songs (like the Captain Jinks of the Horse Marines song!), and a little bit of historical context. But since it’s a tribute, most of the songs were done according to whatever the artist’s usual style is; I would have liked to hear more of them as Laura and her family would have: plain fiddle, and not too many voices gathered round and singing.
