Oh, Julia

Of course I'm going to play along

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

Cheap Wine and Cigarettes -- Darkbuster. This song by local punk legends Darkbuster makes me think of summer and good times having a beer and (back in my b-a-d days) smoking a cigarette or three. Lately, I've been putting it on in the car.

Bridge over Troubled Water -- Simon and Garfunkel -- Because I'm trying to learn it for a talent show at work.

Shut Up (So I Can Love You) -- The McGunks. This is a song from my boyfriend's band The McGunks. My boy was singing it the other day and I can't get it out of my head now. Shameless plug -- The band will be playing in the WBRU Rock Hunt this Friday at Giza in Providence. Come on out and see them and you can get this -- and other -- songs stuck in your head!

Wonder -- Natalie Merchant. From the Tigerlily album. Natalie Merchant's voice is enchanting for me.

Here Comes the Sun -- Nina Simone version. This song is supposed to be a happy song, but Nina's voice makes it haunting.

You Suck -- The Murmurs. No one sounds prettier calling someone a FUCK than The Murmurs.

Weezer -- Beverly Hills... Mainly because I want to *be* the girl in the song that sings "Gimme... Gimme"

You can play along, or not, as you please.
