2 tags in one week! this is a fun one.

I have an iPod obsession. Or better put, an obsession with my iPod. If I go broke, it may be because of the addiction I have to buying music.

So when Miss She-Weasel gave me the opportunity, in her well-titled "i-Curious" post, to share my last 10 songs listened to, I said, "OH, SNAP!" to myself (I know, I know, so out of character for me ... )

Well here they are. Too bad it is only 10.

1. Sealion, Feist.
2. Beautiful Liar, Beyoncé
3. Indecision, Django Reinhardt
4. Swing 39, Robert Helier et sa Formation Swing
5. The Prayer, Andrea Bocelli
6. White Lies, Paolo Nutini
7. Saudade Vem Correndo, Stan Getz & Luiz Bonfa
8. Lou-Ee, Lou-EE, Fastball
9. Back to Black, Amy Winehouse
10. Solamente Una Vez, Agustin Lara

WA-HOOOOOO. I just went back to doublecheck since I screwed up the last tag and it is supposed to be TWENTY-FIVE songs, so here's some more:

11. Mister bluebird, pancake breakfast
12. The Look of Love (Madison Park vs. Lenny B. Remix), Nina Simone
13. La Soledad, Pink Martini
13. Va t'en, Dominique A
14. In Repair, John Mayer
15. Beautiful Day, U2
16. You Can Leave Your Hat On, Etta James
17. Supply and Demand, Amos Lee
18. La Vie en Rose, Edith Piaf
19. From Cayman Islands with Love, Stina Nordenstam
20. Strong Enough, Sheryl Crow
21. God Bless the Child, Billie Holiday
22. Don't Go to Nightclubs Anymore, Van Morrison
23. I'm Still In Love With You, Al Green
24. Welcome to the Black Parade, My Chemical Romance
25. Crazy, Gnarls Barkley

okay well now I must tag someone else. Ms. Utah, you're up. Nunhead Ramblings, how about you? Stacey, this is an easy one and you DO like music.. that's it I guess cos no one I tag ever responds (or LBR already gotcha)...guess I gotta start finding more blogs to read eh?

Late-breaking addition - Step up Monsieur L'ennui and show what you're made of. (pray gawd it isn't 25 Mettalica hits...wait a second, did they even have 25 hits??!!)

Thanks for playing. I didn't realize I tagged you twice this week. Must get more sleep ( now I have the insomnia).

We have some songs in common.
Don't know if you meant to omit the tagging of others part--but you did.;-)

Non, Je ne regrette rien said...

jeez louise, this tagging thing should NOT be so difficult! will get on it missy, but consider yourself warned, I only have about a 50% response rate on these things.

Randal Graves said...

Ahem. I responded. And both you and LBR didn't tag me on this, a meme about music. Bloody hell.

Pancake breakfast? What the hell do they sound like? Syrupy? Muah.

Non, Je ne regrette rien said...

RG- I'm short 2 taggees, so your harumphing has earned you a tag. neener neener.

and pancake breakfast is on myspace.com - folksy stuff.

Randal Graves said...

And they say complaining doesn't work, though I prefer to think of it as networking.

If the folk is somber, I can dig it.

As for the 'hits' commentary, Britney Spears has hits. I rest my case upon the taste of America and the world. ;-P

I'm late to the pary, sorry. In anticipation to your tagging me or after the fact that you tagged me, so did Diva. I don't have an Ipod or a cell phone and this very fancy Imac is my only high tech thingy. But I now know how to search the You Tubes and how to like. To thunderous applause I nod graciously. And it is from trolling the YouTubes that I have hastily assembled my response to this musical meme.
