And I hereby tag harranne, thepollywog, katie1980, colanne, angelchild, novemberbug, tiggsybabes, laura0141 - go on, you know you want to!
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 LiveJournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to.
Okay, so I'm cheating a bit, these are my all time favourite pieces of music, which mean something very specific to me! These are the ones I'd take with me to the fabled desert island to last me for all time!
Aha - Take on Me
I was a massive Aha fan, and this one just sums it up for me. Height of the 80s, catchy tune, hunky norwegian men :-)
Adam and the ants - Stand and Deliver
My first ever album (LP) was by Adam and the Ants. I can see the cover in my mind, but can't remember the title! Anyway, Stand and Deliver is the first song I can consciously remember seeing on TV as a video. It blew me away. Swashbuckling piratey indeed....
Bach - Largo ma non tanto from the Concerto for 2 violins, strings and continuo (bmv 1043)
Bach is one of my alltime musical heroes - don't start me off. This slow movement from the Double Violin Concerto was used in the film "Children of a Lesser God" which was a film which came out in the eighties. It affected me deeply (as it does when you're a teenager). William Hurt plays a teacher of deaf children, has a relationship with a deaf woman who works at the school and the move in together. This slow movement is playing on his record player and she asks him to "sign" her the music. Very poignant and sexy. Truly orgasmic music. Wonderful, gives me shivers every time.
U2 - Sweetest Thing
First song at our wedding reception. Enough said
Aerosmith - Walk this Way
A nod to my love of rock / metal music. Saw Aerosmith in concert at the Birmingham NEC. Bloody brilliant. Love the DMC additions to this song!
Journey of the Sorcerer - Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Movie Soundtrack (HHGG theme tune!)
This is the theme tune to the HHGG and it just makes me smile and feel happy every time I hear it. The movie was wonderful too, a fantastic adaption
Bono - If you wear that velvet Dress
This is taken from Jools Holland and his rhythm & Blues orchestra, More Friends - which is a fantastic album. This song is slow and sexy and somehow sad, but in a good way!
