One reason why I will do this game, is that I just LOVE music. I can hear a song and it immediately brings me back to a time in my life. I am usually pretty good at music trivia. A few months ago, I won the only contest I have ever won, when Vicki held her, what year was I born in contest. It was fun and brought me right back to my highschool days. It seems that she and I graduated the same year..LOL.
So here goes......be prepared, my music tastes are all over the board:
1. Total amount of music files on your computer: one.
Hard to believe a music lover only has one file and that file is that most ridiculous, yet seriously mesmerizing Rumanian song, sung by our silly German friend, here. OMG, I can't even watch it or I will be hearing it in my dreams........hahahaha. When I am feeling a bit down, all's I have to do is click on that link and I find I am smiling again........but the danger is........I will be singing it all night long, even in my dreams...
2. The last CD you bought was:
Distant Future by Heidi Talbot
A combination of one of my favorite types of music......bluegrass, with an Irish touch. Being a redheaded Irish person, I tend to find myself drawn to Irish singers. I had no clue when I bought this CD that Heidi was from Ireland, but it gave me a wee bit more enjoyment when I read the reviews.
3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
This one is easy......the stereo is right next to the computer (which is probably why I don't have music files on the computer), Out of the Woods, by Nickle Creek . Another bluegrass band.
4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you:
Ugghh...I agree with Chris, now I am going to have to think.........there are SO many!
A.When You Come Back Down, again by Nickle Creek
When my granddaughter Avery was stillborn, it was a song that touched many hearts.
B. Fields of Gold, by Sting
This is a song that brings me back to a carefree time in my life. A time of complete
freedom in my 30's and long days in the sun at the ocean. It is also bittersweet as it brings back memories of a very dear person, who is no longer with us.
C. What A Wonderful World, by Louis Armstrong
Whenever I hear this song, I immediately smile and move into that zone of childhood happiness. I ADORE this song. It makes me feel like all is right in the world. I also end up picturing Louis singing , I Wanna Be Like You Hoo Hoo, from the Jungle Book. Just an all over good feelin' song!
D. The Soul of the Machine
Many of you have probably never heard this album........it is different, very new age. I learned how to ski with this tape, softly playing in my ears. I didn't learn how to ski until I was 32, but living up north, in God's Country, I figured, I had best learn how to fill those cold winter days. I was sooooooo bad.....haha. I fell off of every chair ramp on every mountain up here...some ski bunny, eh?...NOT! The soothing tunes of this album helped to calm my nerves and settle me down, so that I wasn't a roving danger to everyone on the mountain.
E. She Drives Me Crazy, (The Raw and the Cooked, Fine Young Cannibals)
This is my favorite exercise tape. Whether it is on the stepper or out walking, this tape, along with Robert Cray's, Strong Persuader, always keep me smiling, in spite of how much I HATE to exercise...LOL.
There you have it. There is so much more that I love, such as the haunting harp tunes of O'Carolan or the power violins from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Then there is the sexy, soothing songs that John Mayer sings or the ecclectic sounds of The Chieftains and one of my new favorites, Maroon 5
Whew........I spent more time on that than I expected......but it was time I enjoyed spending. Now the question remains.......who am I going to tag. I know that you are supposed to tag 3 people, but I also know that this game has gone around a few times, so I am only going to tag one special person. I know that she hasn't played and because she doth protest soooooooo much...........she's (Norma) IT!! (Ducking for cover...hehe)
Fluted Bannisters are Done!
All's I can say about this pattern and these socks is.....................I LOVE them!! They are the most comfortable socks that I have knit todate. This was a fun pattern, but mindless enough, that you could put it down and then pick it up
days months later and easily find your place. (my favorite kind of pattern)
