Roadkill

Friday Five - You've Got to be Kidding...

1. Name one song you hate to admit you like.
There's a few here, but for the sake of argument:

"Cherish" - Madonna.
(Or "Cherish" - The Association, for that matter...)

2. Name two songs that always make you cry.
Appearances to the contrary, I don't really cry all that much anymore, and I can't think of a single song that would do it. An allergy attack? Yeah, these might do it now and then:

"The Winter Long" - The Strawbs, for the associations, because it reminds me of a lost love.
"Art Lover" - The Kinks, for the story, because the narrator's in such pain, and trying to deal.

3. Name three songs that turn you on.
Songs that turn me on sexually, not so much. Songs that are romantic, sure:

"You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" - The Righteous Brothers
"Moondance" - Van Morrison
"You Took the Words Right Out of my Mouth" - Meat Loaf (Okay, maybe this one is a bit more than just romantic...)

4. Name four songs that always make you feel good.
Pick any four. I couldn't. These are all songs where the band just sounds like they're having a great time:

"If I had a Million Dollars" - Barenaked Ladies
"One After 909" - The Beatles
"Twisting by the Pool" - Dire Straits
"Murder or a Heart Attack" - Old 97's
"Down by the Bay" - The Move
"Sing, Sing, Sing" - Benny Goodman
"Apeman" - The Kinks
"My Favorite Spring" - Tom Paxton (This one is just sweet. Best baseball song ever.)

5. Name five songs albums you couldn't ever do without.
Couldn't possibly name five songs. See above. List subject to change without notice.

Misfits - The Kinks
Making Movies - Dire Straits
Rubber Soul - The Beatles
The Kink Kronikles - The Kinks
Fake Book - Yo La Tengo

This meme had to have been devised by someone with a teeny, tiny record collection.
