Music by Meme

Bren J from Stranger in a Strange Land tagged me for this meme, and I said I would give it a whirl, despite my embarrassing answers. I'm so uncool. Is it possible to be SO uncool, that you're actually cool? That's what I'm hoping for...

What song is in your head?

Other than the Rescue Pack song from Go Diego Go?? Hm, that's a tough one. It sort of usurps everything else in a most insidious way.

When I can get that out of my head, it's either Hold Tight by DDDBM&T or Chick Habit by April March (see next question).

My head has a lot of empty space, so I can store any amount of annoying sound bites on constant replay.

What is the newest album in your collection?

Hey - wonder of wonders - I actually just bought an album so I can answer this question! I almost never buy CD's anymore because I rarely have time to listen to them. BUT -- Mr Earth made me watch Quenten Tarantino's Deathproof a couple weeks ago. I didn't really like the movie all that much - pointless AND violent - but I loved the original soundtrack and wouldn't rest until I bought it. I love retro music.

What is the top album on your wish list?

My wish list pretty much only has books on it. However, I am really grooving on DDDBM&T (Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mich & Tich), so I would be interested to have a compilation of their greatest hits.

What is the most recent live music event you have attended?

That would have to be the Boy singing "Skinnamarink" this morning in the stroller. Oh wait! I did see a musical puppet show about Alistair Ant. Take your pick. I'm a Rockin' Mom, either way.

What is the top live music event on your wish list?

Well, here is where I show my age AND how uncool I am all at the same time. The concerts on my wish list are all from the past. I would pay a lot of money to have seen Madonna on her Blonde Ambition tour. Barring that, I would really like to have seen Moxy Früvous, before they went mainstream and changed their lyrics.

What are the top three albums currently in rotation at your house?


Well, as mentioned, I don't really have a lot of time to listen to albums. It pretty much only happens when I clean. And I don't clean very much at all. Other than that, I listen to albums in the car. So here goes...

In my CD player:

1. Nine (Musical Soundtrack). I hope to do this show when it goes up in a couple years, so I was listening to it to see if there was any role to which I was particularly suited. I'd love to be the slutty mistress, but I almost never get cast as that (damn my wholesome face!)

2.
Once on this Island (Musical Soundtrack). A musical I will never be cast in, but I love it to bits. Don't really know why this is in the machine.

3. Mixed CD by Mr Earth. Mr Earth rocks at making mixed CDs. I'm hoping that he will make one for me for the labour room. Although I have no idea what songs are particularly suited to childbirth and labour... If you have any suggestions as to what music is best for the pain of pushing out a kid, please let me know.


YUP, the vote's in. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO cool. I would tag other people, but I'll be lucky if anyone is still reading my blog after these revelations.

Came here from Bren's to see what you had to say for this meme. Nice. And informative. I had certainly never heard of DDDBM&T before...

Do you want me to mix you a CD? What are your general tastes aside from Dora and Diego back to back. Let me know......

ps....I love my music but listening to it TOTALLY fell by the wayside till my kids got older. Why that is I am not sure.

bren j. said...

Okay, well, I'm aghast. All this time I thought it was SkiTTamarink or SkiDDamarink.......*sigh*

Pushing a baby out?

I'd have to recommend Rage Against the Machine.

Ahem.

Alley Cat said...

I think I have met my match in musical coolness!

painted maypole said...

tarantino makes the best movie soundtracks, pulp fiction in so great. and as for a labor and delivery song? how about "Push It" by Salt n Peppa?

Kathryn said...

Ok. Now I have "Rescue Pack" in my head.

Kyla said...

Maybe we'll have Rescue Pack out of our heads by the time they graduate from high school?

Christine said...

i too have LOTS of empty space in my head for musical tidbits!

i gotta check out that tarantino soundtrack. i go back and forth about his movies, but love the music he picks.

God who had time any more to listen to music? About a few times a month I'll turn on Much music just to see what's topping charts, at least, and a few times a year I'll buy a handful of CDs in case I ever have time to listen, which I rarely do. I should find my old MP3 player and load up some new stuff, maybe listen while I clean the house or something, but it is just such an EFFORT. Gah.

I had a whole 'music to be born to' playlist for Bee's birth, with lots of encouraging and uplifting reggae, and some stuff that keeps me super mellow, and then I wanted SILENCE during the whole thing. No talking! No singing! My midwife was constantly like, 'ok, I know you don't want me to talk, but...' I was like a freakin' scientologist for cripes sake.

I would have loved to have seen Madonna on that tour, too.

I get the Rescue Pack song in my head all the time. Right now, though, Twinkle, Twinkle is running through my head. Make it stop.

Mrs. G. said...

Nine? Once on this Island? You have good taste!

crazymumma said...

I somehow lost the email you sent me but I remember the general description of music. I will get it done in the next couple of weeks! I love giving music to people.

Susanne said...

Great meme. And great answers. No worries about people not reading your blog - I'm just way behind as always. (It seems to come down to reading blogs once a week which is a bit awkward.)

And I might have to write a post about the last live music event I went to - have you ever been to a Death Metal concert? No? I bet you wouldn't want to. Well, me neither but I didn't know that it was about Death Metal before I went...
