I can't resist a music meme...

But first, I am going to try my best to go back to putting up one post per day. Well, two if I do a "Spiritual Side" post. That's the problem with having all this free time. I could easily do ten posts a day if it weren't for my impressive self-control.

If you have not yet clicked over and given some love to my tenant, Noi, please do so. She has been a surprisingly good tenant this week. She has promised to give me a massage later, and I think she is going to tell me a bedtime story too, because she said something about a happy ending.


I saw this at the always fabulous Dixie's site and I just had to have it. I won't be able to fill it out as completely as she did, because my musical tastes are not as well rounded. But I'll do the best I can, and where I fall short I will readily cop to my lack of knowledge or interest.

This was fun and a bit challenging to do. It's hard to narrow all the possible choices to just a few. Plus I had to do a little research to make sure I put songs in the right category. I also added a few segments of my own.

The idea behind the meme is that it's about music, and that you can put up to three answers to any question. But no more. One answer is OK, two answers is OK, three answers is OK. Four is not OK, and five is right out. Unless otherwise indicated, you can only choose songs, and be specific--putting "anything by Madonna" doesn't count.

If I never have to hear Stairway to Heaven again, it will be too soon. I played that so much in band. Never went to band camp though.

I find I agree with most of your choices. But I do like classical music.

Blogger Shelli said...

I am glad you didn't tag anyone and particularily not me. I could never have done this one. It brought back a lot of memories for me, though. I think someone I know used Fuck Me Gently as a Friday Dedication awhile back. I just wanted you to know that I paid attention through the whole post!

Blogger Serra said...

Ooh! OOH! OOH!! I LOVE "Never Say Never!" Hell, I thought I was the only one who'd ever heard it!

If I didn't have tendonitis I'd take you up on a tag for this--it'd be fun.

I wouldn't be able to do that one.

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Lynda--I would appreciate classical music more if...I were smarter.

Shelli--Please watch your language on this blog, sis. This is a family-friendly blog, unlike that potty mouth stuff you churn out :)

Serra--Isn't that song awesome? Sorry about the tendonitis :(

Eric--I will beat you like a rented mule.

Nobody--That's okay, dude. I am sure you have many other fine qualities.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Now for this one, you could've tagged me, and I wouldn't even have sighed heavily, much less complained. I loves me some music, too!

Oh, and add this one to your sex songs: Feelin Love by Paula Cole. Whew! Gets me hot and bothered just thinking about it.

Since you didn't tag me, I'll probably have to steal it and save it for a rainy day.

Thanks for the comment..

Oddly I agree with so many of your music choices except how can someone loathe any song by pink floyd?

9:35 AM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Gentleman-Hobbes--Thank you my friend!

Lorraine--And just when I thought you couldn't get any cooler!

CS--It is SO scary, that I don't need to dress up for Halloween, I just go as myself!

Pud--Just thinking about it makes me want to crank it up right now!

Tense--Hmm...I bet I have it. I have her first three CDs. Doesn't ring a bell...I'll check it out.

This is something I should get Donica to do, since she has 3500+ songs on her iPod. She's a music/song fanatic, if there ever was one!

You like Dylan? Ahhh! don't worry, I still love you Mr. Fabulous, even though you don't like Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven. The only song I knew how to play on a guitar, so of course I loved it! I wished I had learned more on the guitar, but I broke up with the guy who taught me how to play it.

You redeemed yourself with loving Janis Joplin's Me and Bobby McGee and Every Rose has it's thorn by Poison AND The Purple Rain soundtrack! :-) Fun meme, although it would probably take me hours to complete looking stuff up on google. Either that or if I "borrowed" your answers.

I love that you love "Chess". I mean really, how many people know that the awesome song "One Night in Bangkok" is actually from a MUSICAL?

That was a great meme...

Wow, you took me back with some of those and others I haven't come across.

Ah, breaker one-nine, this here's the Rubber Duck. You gotta copy on me, Pig Pen, c'mon? Ah, yeah, 10-4, Pig Pen, fer shure, fer shure. By golly, it's clean clear to Flag Town, c'mon. Yeah, that's a big 10-4 there, Pig Pen, yeah, we definitely got the front door, good buddy. Mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a convoy...

For some reason my 17yr.old loves this song. He plays it all the time. :)
