Gone are the days of records, tapes and even CDs and though those day were great I can't help but love digital music era. I recently upgraded my mp3 player. Thus I can now fit the whole of our iTunes folder on one device with room for more. Of course I have enough music to last me a life time but both E and I have the same problem - we have each others music. This means I sometimes hit random and end up listening to Cap'n'Jazz, who I hate and E has to scroll through loads and loads of "la la la music" (aka Joni Mitchell).
E and I have very different opinions on music. To me lyrics are vital, it takes a lot to presaude me to like a song with bad or mediocre lyrics. Then again I can be swayed to like a rather poorly composed song if the lyrics are really good. E on the other hand, thinks the melody is the most important part and the vocalist is just another instrument so its not what they say but how they say it. Thus we don't agree most of the time. Even with bands or musicians we both like chances are we'll preffer totally different albums or songs to each other.
Oh well at least we aren't teenagers anymore when your whole life is almost judged by the type of music you listen to.
In the spirit of my music musings and the fact I was tagged a millions years ago by Michelle, lets play a game...those of you who read Natalie's blog know the rules already but here we go, please guess the Artist and Song title, answers on a postcard or you can just comment...
1. You've been down too long in the midnight sea oh what's becoming of me
Ride the tiger you can see his stripes but you know he's clean
2. Sometimes it rains inside my head
and all the words run dry
3. Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons evrywhere
Ive looked at clouds that way
4. Hey, don't write yourself off yet
It's only in your head
You feel left out or looked down on
5. Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
