I've been tagged! Yay! I haven't had anything to write about so here we go!
Report on 7 Songs I am Into Right Now: (in no particular order)

1. The Golden Years by David Bowie
This is one that probably drives Kane crazy, but it's on so many of my playlists lately. I like to listen to it and think about all the stupid, fun stuff I did in high school and college, my "Golden Years" if you will. Plus David Bowie is King in my universe.
2. I Never Loved A Man by The Commitments
I recently downloaded the Commitments soundtrack, which takes me straight back to the summer of 1993, when Lisa and I had that soundtrack on constant rotation. We went camping that summer and spent hours one night in Massachusetts swinging on the swings and singing "Destination Anywhere". I would have put that song on this list, but I picked the one I went with because it was sung by may favorite "Commitment-ette" Natalie, and I always wished I could sing like her. She rocks.
3. Slowly by Ann-Margret
They played this one on the Kate episode of "Lost", and I had to download it right away. I love the way the whole song sounds, I can tell why guys used to think Ann-Margret was a babe now. Before I was like, "You mean that old slit from Newsies??".
4. Home by Depeche Mode
Just a nice, long, beautiful song to listen to and zone out. I like letting my mind wander to this one.
5. Prayer to Saint Francis by Sarah Maclaclaclaclaclaclan
A good song about forgiveness and acceptance, of letting go. Some recurring themes in my life.
6. Goonies by Cyndi Lauper
Cyndi is so cool. I just have to smile and sing along with this song. I love to blast this one in the car. Goonies ARE good enough!!!Plus, does ANYBODY sing like she can? Her voice is just crazy.
7. Everybody Knows by Concrete Blonde
I actually like this version better than Leonard Cohen's. Concrete Blonde has been one of my favorite bands forever. Also, yet another song from a movie soundtrack. "Pump Up The Volume". Oh, Christian Slater, where did it all go wrong?

I just realized, not ONE of my songs are current. I just don't like what music is nowadays. Nothing grabs me, it all sounds the same. I like music with character.
Now it's my turn to tag someone! Kane, Robert, Diana, Matt, Lani, Erin, tag---you're it!

Before you go though, look at this cat. Look at it! Someone stuffed it into a sock! I think it's a sock. Maybe a bootie. Look at him! Lookatem!!!! Awwwww.

"Goonies 'R' Good Enough" is my ringtone! No one does it better than Cyndi Lauper, and in the words of Mike Myers' mother from "So I Married an Axe Murderer", "Tha's a fact!" I especially dig the snarly facial expressions she makes in the video.

Hello dearest, jewelry maker:

That cat is so cute. However, it kind of looks miserable at the same time. I guess I would be if I was squeezed into a sock.

Now I have Bowie stuck in my head. Um, thanks?

Since I've been tagged I guess I will update my blog for the first time in 2007.
