A Magnificent Seven

I don't know how long the instruction has been up, but I just noticed that young Mr Jason has slapped me with this tag to:

“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.”

I’m not going to able to put much analysis this way about what makes these pieces of music my seven choices. With only 14.6 days worth of music in iTunes I’m obviously a bit of a lightweight. I’ll mix it up and when I find songs that make the right sounds at the right time, they get dropped into a smaller “favourites” folder to go around again.

I’m not great at analysing why I like a particular song at a particular moment. I guess it depends on how the mood takes me, which means they all slip in and out of favour eventually. So these are the seven that are getting the most repeated plays at the moment. They pretty much give the best indication of where my head is at right now.

The top three even have YouTube accompaniment. The rest you can dig out for yourself if you’re so inclined.

If I Don’t See You Again – Neil Diamond (Home Before Dark)

Tom Traubert’s Blues – Tom Waits (Small Change)

Smile – David Gilmour (On An Island)

Goodbye Stranger – Supertramp (Breakfast in America)

The Rising – Bruce Springsteen (The Rising)

The Look of Love – Dusty Springfield (Casino Royale OST)

Till It Shines – Bob Seger (Stranger in Town)

The final instruction is to tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to. Well those seven magnificent are:

Canada’s very own Will Dixon, Great Britain’s great Brian Sibley, the delightful and divine Lara Greenway and The Urban Woo, English Dave when he’s back from loitering around film sets, young Lee Thomson who has been a lazy blogger for far too long, and finally, because he hasn’t already got enough to do with a deadline looming and the computers going crackly, Work Buddy.

Good work, sir. And anything we can do to persuade Thomson to blog, has to be classed as worthwhile.

Thank you, Mr A. And yeah, that Thomson lad needs to stop getting on with his life and get back to blogging.

Just when I thought I was out!
