At last, a meme I really like...

Gacked shamelessly from llembas

The best meme ever:
I want to have a complete soundtrack with one song from each of my friends. Pick one song (or more if you want) you want me to associate with you, then comment. You don't have to upload it. Just give me the name and artist, and I will find it myself. It can be your favorite song in the whole world, a recent favorite or just a song that you think really identifies you.

Thank you!

One of my little boy's favorite songs is "Ain't Nobody Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone," by Ralph Stanley (or maybe the Stanley Brothers?), which is the opposite of your song on so many levels that it makes me giggle!

Wow! There's so much to choose from... you know, though, the one song that I've always felt identifies me on some sort of primal level is "One Vision" by Queen (on the A Kind of Magic album, with all the Highlander music).

This is an awesome meme!!!

Brendan can be either "Inner Smile" by Texas, from the Bend It Like Beckham soundtrack (a perennial favorite song), or as "Mitwa" from the Lagaan soundtrack (current obsessive favorite).

"Inner Smile" is so perfect for him - I can just see that! (Now I'll always think of Brendan when I hear it.) I have the album of greatest hits by Texas, and it includes that one. I'll admit, though, that I bought the album for this. *grin*

that is one gorgeous icon. and, once again, virginia becomes ever more embedded in my images of you. :)

couple of possibles for me (and this is the list that doesn't endanger you with The Proclaimers [lol]):

* "Throw your arms around me" by Hunters & Collectors (Oz band; not sure if you can easily find this but I can send it to you if you'd like. 1980s angsty ballad)

* "Miss America" by David Byrne

Thanks! This icon is from the generous green_key. You know, my ultimate plan is to take over the entire world and force all of its inhabitants to worship Virginia. It's so easy, though, I don't think anyone will mind. :)

Oooh, good David Byrne tune! Do you mind sending me the Hunters & Collectors song? I'm not seeming to find it very easily. Thanks so much!

And I don't mind the Proclaimers. In fact, I would walk a thousand.... No, better stop there. :)

Do 'Something Changed' by Pulp for me. One of my favorites and a good one for this particular mix - Not to mention, time of my life... ;-)

Great choice! Will do. :) Thanks!

Awesome! Would you mind uploading it? I'd definitely owe you one. It does seem to be rather hard to find. Thanks so much! I can't wait to hear it.

Sting's Desert Rose for me, because I danced to it right after my dance teacher of 20 years died. I could give her no better tribute.

I adore this song! And now I know the special significance it has for you, I'll akways think of you when I hear it. *huge hugs* I'm so sorry it's such a bittersweet story, but it does sound like the perfect tribute.

At the moment, it's "I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe.

That is such a beautiful song. Great choice. Now I'll think of you every time I hear it! :) Thanks for adding your pick! :) :)

"Into the West" - Annie Lennox - ROTK soundtrack :)

For numerous reasons. Numerous numerous, and not only LOTR, but several personal ones.

"God's Gallipoli", by Poi Dog Pondering

I feel this song captures why I make art. When I move my art-making space from one house to another, I always "bless" the new space by playing this song, first thing.

It feels so dishonest to repeat a song I posted somewhere else, but really "Moon River" is one of my favorite songs, because I just love the melody and there are a couple of lines that really get me, especially the one about having so much world to see :-).
eldritchhobbit
Sep. 16th, 2005 11:12 pm (UTC)
No, no, not dishonest at all - if that's the song, that's the song! Great choice, by the way. I heard a version of this by the late, great Sarah Vaughan that gave me shivers. Classy pick!

Great idea for a meme! For me, I'd pick "The Windmills of Your Mind" as sung by Noel Harrison from the original The Thomas Crown Affair soundtrack or "Summer 78" as sung by Claire Pichet from the Goodbye, Lenin! soundtrack.

Wow! Would you believe that just this Tuesday I led a discussion of freshmen after showing Goodbye, Lenin! at school? Small world, isn't it? I love your song choices.
