Some babe wants to get to know more about me. She tagged me. Tagging is kind of like an online booty call, if you didn't know. This is what I am supposed to do:

List ten songs you are currently digging. It doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're no good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artists, and the ten songs on your blog. Then tag five other people to see what they are listening to.

1.) Ween - Buenos Tardes Amigo ~ I downloaded this song on accident and wow. Talk about perfect.
2.) Raffi - The Ants Go Marching ~ I really like The Ants Go Marching and Raffi does a good job. I wish some rapper would make a badass Ants Go Marching remix...potential there!
3.) Nine Inch Nails - The Hand That Feeds ~ I'd really like to see NIN live.
4.) Spoon - I Turn My Camera On ~ It's been so long since I've liked alternative/rock.
5.) Michael Watts and David Banner - Might Getcha (Chopped + Screwed) ~ Any song that begins with a gun shot and then has Southern rappers flow over a children lullaby is a keeper.
6.) SPM - I Must Be High ~ While making Ajax a rap CD, I've revisited some oldies and this song is still pretty siiick.
7.) Donna Lewis - I Love You Always & Forever ~ A great girl song to listen to real loud when no one is around.
8.) Radiohead - Street Spirit (Fade Out) ~ Reminds me of when I saw Radiohead live.
9.) BT - Dreaming ~ I don't know why, but I've liked this song for a while.
10.) Real Recognize Real - CD 2, Track 2 ~ This song gets me jacked up about life. I don't know the name of the track because the CD hasn't left my stereo since I got it.

I'd really like to know what Jeff the Yuppie, Ajax, The Pants, Mary Anne, and Liron are listening too. I need new music for life.

Christ, 10 songs? Fuck.

1. "Get Black" by the Ponies - it sounds just like a boring rock song and it kind of is, but I like it a lot. "The new Ponies album" is supposed to be really really good.

2. This song I found on my IPuD.I have no idea what it is, but it's kicking my ass. It sounds like a turkish beastie boys.

3. "Decatur" - Sufjan Stevens. I've been trying to hate this guy for weeks but last week I heard two songs from his new album that were really great and I can no longer hate him. Fuck!

4. "So Good" - Gogogo Airheart. They were San Diego noiseniks and now they are playing boring rock like the Pony's. Which apparently I like a lot.

5. Goddamn I'm only at five? Fuck. Destination Diamonds - Diamond Nights. A new band from the Bronx, they play thin-lizzy style and make me want to rock again.

6. "Dancing in the Moonlight" - King Harvest. I listen to a lot of '70s pop, and it doesn't get any better than this.

7. "Hellhound" - Sir Lord Baltimore. Amazingly over-the-top metal from '71.

8. Someone needs to buy me this picturedisk by So So Many Many White Tigers.

9. "Answering Machine" - a hot b-side from Rupert "Pina Colada Song" Holmes

10. I have mp3's of most of this shit, so let me know if you want to hear anything.

Aw, you called me a babe :). I can't get over the fact that you like screwed music, that's just amazing. I don't like screwed music so I always find it entertaining when others do. And Ajax? Sufjan Stevens is so beautiful; you cannot hate the Sufjan!

now reading back over what others have chosen, i now gather that i was supposed to list stuff you've never heard of. sorry about that.

Conti said...

Duh Maryanne how unblog of you to post songs that people have actually heard of.

The Prose~cuter said...

unblog... wow. if that isn't enough to send me skulking off into obscurity, i don't know what is. in my own defense, you didn't exactly lay out the criteria in the instructions. so much for my two cents. maybe today i'm thinking of a whole NEW list of songs that you and your blogfriends haven't heard of. don't bet on it though.
