Music Meme!!

One one my favorite bloggers out there Emiline, who's blog sugar plum you should all be familiar with has taken my meme virginity. Yes, in almost a year of blogging, this is my first. And it's a really cool one because rather than answer mundane questions about my favorite snack and whether I'm a morning or night person, this one is about music. Many of you know that I both live in a very music-centric city and and am married to a musician. Needless to say, this is a topic I love dearly (possibly more than baking?). I was tickled to participate.
These are the rules:

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, shaping your summer (or whatever season). Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.

I have broken the rules only slightly. The first song is what I would consider my "summer song"- or the song I am really into right now. Natalie Portman's Shaved Head is a local (Seattle) band that I find to be loads of fun. They are not "big" yet- but they will be.

The last 6 I would consider to be my hands down all time favorite songs ever. Not only now, but until the end of time.


Sophisticated side ponytail by Natalie Portman's Shaved Head

Deep Red Bells by Neko Case

Strangers by The Kinks

Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest

Not Dark Yet by Bob Dylan

Corrina by Taj Majal

This must be the Place (Naive Melody) by The Talking Heads...cuz this is me and Trevor's "song"..yes, we have a song.

And now, I am tagging:

Brooke at The diet chronicles- cuz she's my sister beetches.

Brittany at Musings of a Barefoot Foodie- she has a beautiful name.

Mallow at Pietown- a fellow Seattle blogger who's sure to rock all of our worlds with her sweet tunes

Jenn at The Leftover queen

Matt at Wrightfood- another Seattleite whom I've memed before, so It will be fun to make him think I'm stalking him.

Jonny at Jonny loser- Also a friend of mine, one of my sister's old high school friends (they went to homecoming together)

Claudia at cookeatFRET

OK, I cannot think of many times when stalking is good, but this is one of them! yay!!

I will now have to rack my brains through my rather odd music collection..

JennDZ - The Leftover Queen said...

YAY! You are back! :)

I just did the meme! Thanks for thinking of me - so why did you pick me??? Youhave reasons for everyone else - I feel left out! ;)

Brooke said...

Damn you! Now I have to think about my favorite music and narrow it down to seven!?!?! Okay fine. This may take a while.

I hate you.

matt wright said...

OK.. I just did the Meme. Way too hard to narrow it down to 7 tunes.

Jonny Loser said...

You whore. How dare you make me do stuff? I keeeel you.

Jonny Loser said...

Are you going to the Capitol Hill Block Party this weekend? NPSH is playing.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for including Dancing in the Moonlight!

Brittany said...

Matt- (heavy breathing) you're on of my favorite victims.

Jenn- Oh dear. Don't feel left out! I did not have specific reasons for you or Claudia, other than I loves yas both.


Matt- totally. There a good half dozen other songs I feel like I am betraying.

Jon- Mwahahaha. I'm hoping to get off work in time to go to the CHBP. Will you be there?

Dancinginthemoonlight- Is that seriously your blog? It's definanlty one of the most spectacular songs ever.

Emiline said...

Yay! You did it! You were my #1 choice, because I knew you'd select some cool songs. I LOVE The Kinks and others you mentioned.

Jonny Loser said...

I'll be there on Friday & Saturday. I bought my tickets a long time ago. I just need to look at the schedule to find out when I'm going to be where.

Cakespy said...

I just saw NPSH (ha! ) ! They are a lot of fun. :-) and I too am married to a Seattle musician!!

PS--sorry to ask through your comments, but I am trying to find your email! I need to ask you something! Mine is jessieoleson (at) gmail.com if you want to drop a line.

Mallow said...

I'm trying to do my meme, but I can't figure out how you get the videos to post! Hmm - I'm sure I'm making it more complicated than it needs to be...

cook eat FRET said...

please please please don't hate me cause i never do memes. i've turned them all down. i am SUCH a loser. i'm so sorry. plus i listen to npr and weird singer/songwriter stuff that no one really knows of. and i am OLD so i am not cool.


don't be maaaaaaaaaad. ok?

Brooke said...

I meme'd. Done. Now get off my ass.

Love you.

Brittany said...

Em- Thank you for thiking of me. You have no idea how freakin cool I felt

Jon- I missed it! My assistant had the audacity to go on a honeymoon, so I was glued to work all weekend. WAH.

Cakespy- brittanyleeadams@yahoo.com.
We do have quite a bit in common!

Mallow- I'm embarrased to admit how long it took me to figure that out. It's the code on the top right of the screen.

Claudia- SO not a reason for me to hate you. I listen to npr way more than I listen to music (Ira Glass in one of my all time heroes)- which is why most of my songs are decades old.

Brooke- to be fair, I was never "on your ass". But thanks for playing.
