Alex stopped by yesterday and said I could still post my top ten music list. Ain’t he the sweetest?!!!
The only problem is….I ADORE music. All kinds of it. And what I listen to depends on my mood. Still, I did manage to narrow it down to just ten. It was difficult and I may need therapy, but I did it.
I picked songs that, no matter what, bring a smile to my face. They make me close my eyes and go somewhere else. They do it to me. In no particular order, here they are:
Rambling Gambling Man – Bob Seger
Because it’s straight up rock-funk. I prefer the original version when he was very young
In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel
Because it’s beautiful. I prefer the live version; it showcases various talents. And I never want the song to end.
Living For The City & Uptight (yeah, I cheated) – Stevie Wonder
Because I grew up with Stevie. These are only two of many I could have picked. Besides, I always cheat on these kinds of things. You would have been disappointed if I hadn’t….
Do Ya – ELO
Because it has a part in the middle that I just go bonkers for. Since I was a teenager.
He Reigns – Newsboys
I love the words and how the music adds such drama. And it’s very upbeat.
Ray of Light – Madonna
Because when no one is looking, this is a song I can spaz-dance to. And at the end, she sounds like she’s having a fun time.
Wonderful – Adam Ant
Because he wrote this after coming out about being bi-polar and could see more clearly. It’s about regret. And it’s beautiful. He still struggles….
(When I was a teen and he wore all the costumes and war paint, I was ga-ga over him!)
She Sells Sanctuary – The Cult
I love the darkness of Cult and this song is, to me, an in your face flip-off. It’s an upbeat sort of song, to be kinda dark. I’ve loved it for years and years.
In The Mood (For a Melody) – Robert Plant
Because, well, have you ever listened to it?!!!!! If you haven’t, I suggest you youtube it and listen. Eyes closed. The video doesn’t match the song AT ALL. That voice…..ahhhhhhh……
Bad – Live – U2
Because it’s a beautiful song and this live version really showcases Edge’s talent.
Love that dude. If I had a bucket full of wishes, one would be to play as well as he does…..
Goo Goo Dolls – Without You Here
Yes – Lift Me Up and The Calling
Robert Plant – If I Were A Carpenter
Loreena McKennitt – The Mummer’s Dance
The Verve – Bittersweet Symphony
Eddie Money – She Takes My Breath Away
B-Tribe – She Moves Through The Fair
