I seriously cannot think of anything to post (and I'm rather busy at work as well), so I've decided to re-post my "test" from last week. I know it's just like the dreaded reruns on TV, but it'll have to do for now! Sorry!
According to my counters (got two of them, just to be on the safe side!) this blog is averaging close to 60 hits a day. Does anyone actually read it (I know a selected few ones of you are – that’s at least the impression I get) or are you all just visiting, because the “next blog” button brought you here? Obviously several of the hits are by spammers, who quickly leave with their tail between their legs, because they cannot post their pointless messages here!
So in a naive attempt to find the answer to my above question, I’ve decided to make a small test .
If you (yes YOU!) were the celebrity guest on a radio show and you were asked to pick 10 songs to be played during the show – what 10 songs would you pick?
Would you pick your favorite songs or songs that would show how eclectic your music taste is or what would you pick??
My picks (at least at this very moment) are:
Tears For Fears – Suffer The Children
I have to play a song from (what probably is) my favorite albums.
Angie Aparo – The American (hidden track)
No one ever seems to have heard of him, which is quite a shame, because everyone should have!
OMD – Souvenir
I loved it the first time I heard it and still do!
Interpol – Take You On A Cruise
According to WMP I’ve played this song 97 times this year (by far the most times for any song. Precious by Depeche Mode is a distant second with 54 plays). I assume this means that I like it?
Kent – Istället För Ljud
Wouldn’t be right if I didn't play a song by the best band in the world
Mew - Mica
Or by the second best
Doves - Pounding
Or by the third best
U2 – One
If you see two idiots dancing (slowly) to this song at the mall; it’s most likely my wife and I! And she would probably strangle me if I was on the radio and didn’t play her favorite song!
Sonic Youth – Teen Age Riot
The eclectic pick I guess?!?
The La’s – There She Goes or David Gray – Babylon
Cannot decide which one is my favorite. And you should play your favorite song. Shouldn’t you?
Hmmmm - what happened to Radiohead, Pink Floyd, The Smiths, The Cure, Coldplay, my new favorite band The Field Mice and ???? And I seriously cannot believe that I forgot The Stones Roses and Gangway! And probably several others I cannot think of now!
Still testing ;-) So far you have made some really good picks and the number of entries has reached 8 (someone is actually reading this!)! More comments to follow some time next week!
