still tagalicious, after all these years.

this guy dared me to post the top ten songs in my itunes library, and i swear to god, if my music wasn't so pathetic i wouldn't bore you with it.

but you know i can't turn down a good chance to embarrass myself, so of course i have to do it.
and, seeing as how my itunes gives me a 'top 25' list, i think i'll just go ahead and post that.
because there's just so much good fun to be had, you know?

anyway, here it is:

(oh, and it was specified that i should post in the 'song-artist-record' format. so when i tag you, make sure you do it that way, too. otherwise you'd be breaking the rules, and we all know that you certainly can't do whatever you want on your own blog.)

1. reverie, claude debussy. (album not listed)
2. mr. brightside, the killers, hot fuss.
3. dirty harry, the gorillaz, demon days.
4. alone, heart, greatest hits.
5. golden slumbers, the beatles, abbey road.
6. everloving, moby, play.
7. the great gig in the sky, pink floyd, dark side of the moon.
8. the district sleeps alone tonight, the postal service, give up.
9. all i want, joni mitchell, blue.
10. nice to know you, incubus, morningview.
11. porcelain, moby, play.
12. strawberry fields, the beatles, magical mystery tour.
13. heard 'em say, kanye west (featuring adam levine), late registration.
14. encore, dangermouse, the grey album.
15. echo, incubus, morningview.
16. alien, bush, sixteen stone.
17. anna begins, counting crows, august and everything after.
18. across the universe, the beatles, let it be.
19. ain't nothin' ta fuck wit, wu-tang clan, violent crimes 2 soundtrack.
20. nightswimming, REM, automatic for the people.
21. roads, portishead, dummy.
22. moonlight serendade, glen miller. (album not listed)
23. come monday, jimmy buffet, songs you know by heart.
24. violet, hole, live through this.
25. suite: judy blue eyes, crosby stills nash and young, so far.

so, yeah.
while i would argue that most of that is enjoyable music, the problem is that it is all REALLY, REALLY OLD. b.g. always makes fun of me because we'll be playing the jukebox at work, and i'll be all hey, do you know this one song, it goes like... and then i sing whatever part i know, and she always knows exactly what it is and then she says hey, thanks for catching on! that song has been out for 2 years!

so, maybe i should take this opportunity to ask for some suggestions.
does anyone want to recommend some music to me?
music that came out in 2006, or (gasp) even 2007?

please!
help a sister out!

p.s. i hereby tag jen!!, mikala, lady s., csl, d.b. echo, and whim.
i was also going to tag the jessicas, (although one of them was already tagged) and stew, and another utah girl. but it's late and i'm sick of making links.

so, how about if everyone just plays along?

oh, and you should all really consider paying a visit to WTB!? and read about the new project we're starting.
it's going to be really fun, so go! read it now!

Ack, a tag! That's never happened to me before. Okay, I'll have a look at my iTunes and see what I can do...

Well, I don't have an iTunes list. My PC is so old that if I try to play music while doing anything else, it will crash. (It will probably crash anyway, but...)

If I could remember them I would make a list of the 18 songs I got in exchange for the $5 bill I put in the jukebox at the bar where my friends and I were having an after-work drink the other day (you can see video of the sfter-work party by following a link from the "Look, I'm on TV!" post on my site.) But all those Guinesses tend to make the details get a bit blurred. Here are some of them, in no particular order:

Dead and Bloated - Stone Temple Pilots - Plush(?)
Cherub Rock - Smashing Pumpkins - Greatest Hits
Stand Inside Your Love - Smashing Pumpkins - Greatest Hits
Enter Sandman - Metallica - ?
Iris - Live - ? (Was supposed to be "I Alone", but I entered the wrong number)

...ummm...

Did I mention I had a LOT of Guiness between 11:00 that morning and 6:00 that evening?

I would say other bands that I like but I don't think that you'd like any of it.
I dunno.
Look on my guyspace if you wanna.

Not all of those are old! Nice range of styles BTW. I don't have iTunes and my MP3 player (which just got replaced) doesn't list the top ten songs.

I'll give you a choice: I can list what is on my player (only 1G of memory so not a big list) or I can take one of my mixes and list those songs.

Yessssss, I loooove music. :D I will thoroughly enjoy this taggy-post. Thanks, T.

Well I created a new iTunes filter for all my 2006 and 2007 music.

My highlights are:

Yell Fire!, Michael Franti and Spearhead
Sam Town, The Killers,
Modern Times Bob Dylan
St. Elsewhere, Gnarls Barkley

I think you should really check out Michael Franti. I think you might like him.

I'm a sucker for peer pressure, and I took up the challenge.

Ok, I kind answered the tag. Normally I don't do them and just respond in the comments (yes I am a snobby bitch) but the tag kinda fit part of my post so...
