Show Us Your Memes

Thank you kindly to Mr Jason, Ms Lianne and Ms Laura for meme-ing me with this : "List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

I am mostly listening to these (in no particular order) :

1) Aisha : Death in Vegas
Rumbly, thumping, threatening, wonderful stuff.

2) Human : Goldfrapp
Love love LOVE Goldfrapp - they're sort of quirky odd, and wonderfully mad along Kate Bush lines. Alison Goldfrapp also runs around in her videos with giant owls, dressed like harlequins and such - what's not to like. Mad.

3) Rainy Rainy Day : Brownie McGhee from Angel Heart soundtrack
This is probably my favourite soundtrack, and the fact that it's full of bits of dialogue and noise from the film just makes it more atmospheric.

4) Ballad of the Broken Seas : Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell
Mark Lanegan is a wonderful thing - when he sings, he sounds like gravel and hurt. Combined with the sweet manipulations of Isobel Campbell, they make grubby little beauties like this one.

5) Evangeline : Icicle Works
Bit of nostalgia here. Wasn't a massive fan of the 'Works but I love the story in this song.

6) Heart-Shaped Box : Nirvana
Nirvana were my first proper grown-up gig (I don't count Wham as it was merely a teenage mistake thank-you), and I have a soft spot for this song. Cobain sounds like a wounded animal.

7) Butterfly : Screaming Trees
Lanegan again in one of his former incarnations. Ahh, flannel shirts and grunge, sweet memories.

Will tag if I can find 7 bloggers not already taggified.
