My bestest friend and avid blogger, Nici, aka: Dig This Chick, from Montana, challenged me, and some other bloggers, to share our favorite music: past and present.
Here’s the challenge:
And because I love music, I decided to play along. So here’s what I said, with a couple of changes because it means I get to add more….
The Bluebellies have to be on my list, because the lead singer is super hot (see photo above) and I love songs about chickens. But because I am engaged to the lead singer, they don’t count, so this is just a shameless plug.
M Ward’s Chinese Translation… (click to see a cute video.)
And for the last one… this is so hard because I have a million others… but here goes:
The Bright Eyes song: First Day of my Life makes me well up every time (cute video.)
And as for my favorites 7 years ago… it was more about albums and less about songs… maybe that is evidence as to how the music industry has changed with the ipod shuffle phenomenon.
Counting Crows: August and Everything After. Still love it, but it is a little embarrassing to admit now, because everything after their ‘everything after’ album is not so good.
Indigo Girls: Swamp Ophelia. I was singing at the top of my lungs in the car with Nici.
Outcast: Aquemini. I went to UGA (go dawgs) and saw them in concert, way before Hey-Ya, although they are a good example of a group that actually improves with time.
Sublime: Sublime (all-purpose cd just like flour.)
Dave Matthews Band: Under the Table and Dreaming (it was unavoidable.)
Smashing Pumpkins: Adore.
Ani diFranco: Living in Clip
Feel free to post your lists in the comments below, or post on your own blog and link, either way, it’s fun to discover new music.
Ready. Set. Go!
