List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.
Stormy Weather - Sarah Harmer, Songs for Clem
A great re-make of a fabulous song. I can’t get enough of this one, the whole album really works for me, but this song has always been one of my faves, and she just does it ever so well.
Raised on Robbery- Joni Mitchell
Every good Canadian girl should have this song in her repertoire. It is the ultimate dance around, housecleaning, ruising- down –the –highway with the top down song.
American Idiot- Green Day
This one just says it all.
Skater Boi- Avril Lavigne
This one is courtesy of the wee missy in my house. She has given up on the girly girl fuss and is wearing combats and singing along with Avril dancing up a storm. I am thoroughly enjoying this phase in our life. She keeps me real.
Down to The River to Pray- Alison Kraus
This song levels me, brings me to a place I can deal with, when shit is going on.
Sugar Magnolia- Grateful Dead
This song never leaves my playlist. It has been there in many forms for more years than I can count. I never met a version of it that I didn’t like.
I’ll Fly Away- Alison Kraus, Gillian Welch
Just plain brilliant on every level, great song, great singers.
Tied for number 8 for many reasons are the following
Uncle John’s Band- Indigo Girls, Deadicated
Ripple- Jane’s Addiction, Deadicated
Big yellow Taxi- Joni Mitchell
Canadian railroad Trilogy- Gordon Lightfoot.
And on that note, I tag:
Kate, Jackie, Joe, Kelly, Jay, Deb, Diana
