10: a song that makes you sad.

My uncle had this song at his funeral. I gather Lemmy maybe did too? but my uncle died first, and besides, he was a good uncle. To give some idea of his personality, he demanded Fire by Arthur Brown for the end, when the curtains close. He fixed things, and he took life lightly, and the world is a better place for having had him in it.

I give you Jollity Farm by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band

In the light of last night's/this morning's news, I'm moving straight on to 'Song that makes you happy'. I nearly added this as a second song to 'makes you want to dance' but I figured that's related to happiness. So, I hope it brings you cheer.

A song about drugs or alcohol.

This is absolutely as close to the drug itself as I ever want to get. Heroin by Lou Reed & The Velvet Underground.

I was just saying that I don't tend to do the 'oh, this song!' *cranks volume* thing, then the next day I was listening to Hawkwind and Hassan i Sabbah came on. And I leant over and turned up the volume.

It just occurred to me that the reason for keeping the whole list in the post might be so I can add links to the relevant posts. So I'll start doing that.

The list, now with linking )

4. A song that reminds you of someone you'd rather forget.

It was the mid 90s when I first became aware of this person. I was sceptical at first, wary of them, so kept my distance. In 1997, however, I was losing some of my scepticism, enough that this song at the time was a sign of hope, of a good future, which was to be dashed over the next decade.

The song, of course, is Things can only get better by D:Ream

I've so far spent the morning reading the Fan Writer Hugo nominations, which is to say, drinking coffee and spluttering with indignation and annoyance a lot. I trust the next thing I read will be happier for me; certainly I like all of the series that I've read, even if, in some cases, I'm not particularly desperate to continue.

Anyway, it is nearly time for my shopping to arrive, and to wake Judith, so have a quick song.

A song that reminds you of summer. It's set on 15th July, so a fairly obvious choice, but St Swithin's Day by Billy Bragg.

Last night, I made some nice rice which I thought I should share. Fry garlic and onions (I used spring onions because they needed up but you get the idea), add some rice and harissa powder until translucent, then add veg stock, raisins, flaked almonds, saffron and a tin of chickpeas.

2. A song you like with a number in it.

The first song that comes up whenever I press 'random play' is 1,2,3,4 by 이하이 (Lee Hi) so I listen to it a lot. It's a nice bouncy pop song, I hope you like it too.

I've been enjoying [personal profile] gwendraith posting a music meme, daily or so, so I thought some of y'all might appreciate if I did that too.

The first is 'a song with a colour in the title'.

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue by Bob Dylan.
