yawn, stretch, wake up

Posted in: General

I’ve done hibernating from my blog.
It’s the change of season.
People have nagged.
Now I’ve been tagged, so it seems a good ’nuff reason to start again:

List five songs that you are currently digging – it doesn’t matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying right now. Post these instructions and the five songs (with artist) in your blog. Then tag five people to see what they’re listening to

1. A late adopter, I’ve come round to Ben Lee’s ‘latest’ album, ‘Awake is the New Sleep’. And I’m liking ‘Gamble Everything for Love’. Such a prat but young Mr Lee can so write a catchy tune.
2. Thanks to birthday goodness I have a copy of Billy Bragg’s downloadable ‘Live at the Barbican’. While I really quite like listening to Billy’s rants (does that count as spoken word??) I still think ‘The Fourteenth of February’ is a lovely, heartfelt little song.
3. A while ago my housemate bought home a copy of the Art of Fighting’s ‘Second Storey’. The whole thing is great and, while it’s a bit of a sad one, ‘Busted, Broken, Forgotten’ is one of my favourites.
4. Listening to something else which sounded a lot like The Tragically Hip last weekend made me dig out ‘Phantom Power’. I love ‘Emporer Penguin’. Who writes a pop song about penguins?
5. That newish one by Oasis. I can never tell the songs apart (or remember their names, it seems) ’cause they all have similar qualities. But my ears always prick up when I hear it in passing on the radio or in a shop somewhere.

And now for the next five …..
