music questions and answers

i was just looking over my [url=]fifty favorite foods[/url] last night and i was getting really hungry. this morning commenter ann asked me a few music questions so i thought i’d answer the friday music three:

1) The CD you last bought?
i’m not positive about this, but i think the last CD i bought was Dido’s Life for Rent. heh…it’s been a while.

2) What was the last song you listened to before reading this message?
i think it was howie day’s collide.

3) Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot.

  • r kelly’s ignition remix – this is sort of a recent one. i don’t know why i listen to it so much, it’s got a catchy tune and it just makes me happy.
  • elvis costello’s Alison – i am a big fan of elvis costello. i didn’t discover him until recently, but this song seems to capture his wistful spirit.
  • dido’s life for rent – sort of describes my life, i guess. i think it just gives me some comfort that other people are in the same situation as i am, but i do know that there’s better things to come.
  • bangles’ eternal flame – this is also a real recent listen for me….i mean, i heard it back in the 80s, but there was this comic on comedy central that did this bit with the song and it brought back a flood of memories from a more innocent time. i guess i like the song because it does bring me back to those days.
  • elton john and leonard cohen’s duet born to lose – whenever i am sad, i listen to this song. it’s just so depressing and painful that it oddly gives me comfort because i know then that my problems just aren’t so bad.

    1. i really like [i]ignition[/i]. i think part of the brilliance of the song is that it sounds so innocent if you don’t listen to the lyrics and just the beat, but then if you do…there’s just so much more to it!

      as for [i]born to lose[/i], that song has brought back lots of good memories!

    2. Is anyone else weirded out by how “ignition” has all of these sexual references in it yet also sounds like it could be a children’s song? I’m just askin’ …

    3. howie day’s [i]collide[/i]: very good song! i like lots!

      r kelly’s [i]ignition remix[/i]: very strange for your tastes. i’m down with the beat too, but have you listened to the words? hehe!
