I'm one of those awful people who can listen to the same album on repeat for days.

In my defense, I do this only because I don't have a roommate to annoy with it and the cats haven't complained yet.

This confession has been brought to you by NICO Touches the Walls' Passenger album, which I discovered in the process of trying to track down the OP of [C] The Money of Soul and Possibility, which also has a pretty cool title sequence, btw. (This is the action show about economics, for those I've mentioned it to.)

Edit: Also, Molotov Jukebox's "Laid to Rest," which has brought my total number of Luck Gandor theme songs up to two. Please let me stay, please let me stay, but he's trying to get me out the door in his diplomatic way.

[ profile] elsewhere7 resurrected the song lyrics meme! That means I get to do it again. Besides, it's been ages.

You guys know the drill: put your media player on shuffle, play the first however many songs, take down the first lines, make your friendslist guess the title and artist.

As usual, I am nice enough to cut out the songs that aren't in English.

"Not in Nottingham" is pretty hardcore for a song from an old-school Disney musical.

Swiped from [ profile] ahumblepen and [ profile] infinitepryde. Go to and select the year you became 18. Paste the
list of the top 75 songs. Bold the ones you liked; strike the ones you disliked; and italicize the ones you know but don't exactly like nor dislike. The ones you don't know will stay common text.

[ profile] ahumblepen did it, and we all know what that means. Anyone who doesn't know this meme clearly hasn't been paying any attention to my LJ for very long: playlist on shuffle, 25 tracks, sans instrumentals and foreign-language songs, you guess 'em.

La la la oooo. )

Totally swiped from [ profile] ahumblepen, because it was too wacky not to try out.

Take your playlist, but it on shuffle, and let the songs answer the questions! Instrumentals and stuff not in English skipped as per usual.

And the unguessed answers to the music meme, since if anyone were going to get them they would have by now.

This is the song that DOESN'T END... )
joiedecombat: (Cheer Up Emu Kid) ganked from [ profile] ahumblepen. Playlist on shuffle, first fifty songs, first five words from each, guess the song and the artist, no googling or azlyrics-ing. I didn't include the songs that aren't in English, so stop your whining. Bonus for the cut.

This is the song that... )

I have been tagged by [ profile] funwithrage's mutant retromeme. If tagged, list five songs you are currently digging on, then tag five other people.

Incidentally, [ profile] funwithrage, "Rasputin" is by Boney M.

1) Kenny Chesney, "Anything But Mine"

In the midst of the music
I tell her I love her
And we both laugh
'Cause we know it isn't true
Ah, but Mary, there's a summer drawing to an end tonight
And there's so much that I long to do to you

2) Matt Nathanson, "I Saw" (preferably the live, acoustic version)

And it's amazing
The look in your eyes
Like you could save me
but you won't even try
And you tell me again
How everything will be all right

3) John Cameron Mitchell, "Wicked Little Town"

If you have no other choice
you know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise of this wicked little town

4) Apocalyptica, "Nothing Else Matters"

Cello quartet cover of the Metallica song. Unf.

5) Weiss, "Tonight"

Only if angels are here
Then demons may be as well
The inside of everyone's heart is like that, black and white and blue
Only if love is here
Then pain may be as well
Tonight this world changes

And because Izzy did it, five books/series thereof:

1) J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas series. Every last bit of it. Slightly improbable near-future murder mysteries featuring queen bitch cop Eve and Roarke the walking orgasm. Also the setting is just fun.

2) Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, everything that was cool about the Anita Blake series back when it was cool instead of dumb.

3) Robin McKinley's Sunshine.

4) Nora Roberts' Night Tales, because why the hell not.

5) It doesn't strictly count as a book, but I am enjoying the recent run of the X-Men comic too.

I'm feeling generous, so I tag anyone on my friendslist who wants a meme. Here you go.

For [ profile] annwyd, some angsty pretentious lyrics to play with, if you so desire.

Blue Mask.
God Hurts Those I Love
No Reason
Stone Roses
Tiny Little Song

And I can't see straight now, so I'm going to bed.

And there's probably another round coming, since you guys went through so much of this one so quickly. :)

[ profile] raiu resurrected the lyrics meme, and far be it from me to let it pass without perpetuating it at least one more time. You guys know the drill - put your playlist on shuffle, copy down some lyrics from the first however many songs, and throw them up in your LJ for your friends to guess.

Still I guess some things we bury are just bound to rise again... )

I'm vaguely impressed that people got the songs from which I quoted only two lines and the song that was in Japanese. Although frankly if [ profile] rlebeau hadn't gotten "Stone Roses" I'd have been disappointed.

Cut for spam, as per normal. )

I'm sure you all know the drill by now: put your biggest playlist on shuffle. Take down some lyrics - preferably excluding titles - from the first twenty-five vocal tracks. Put 'em up in your LJ for your friends to try to identify.

Largely inspired by [ profile] annwyd's post of a very cool mp3...

I'm on the hunt for some new music, and fishing for recommendations. Particularly I'm on the lookout for lullaby-style songs. Anyone have any favorites they'd like to point me at? C'mon, you know you do. Share.

My personal contribution, to get things started, is Takehito Koyasu's "Tiny Little Song." Because.

Okay, okay!

In lieu of any actual content.

On your current playlist, hit shuffle and pick the first twenty songs on the list (no matter how cheesy or embarrassing), and write down your favorite line of the song. Try to avoid putting the song title in the line. Then, have your friends comment and see if they know the songs.
