Set your music player of choice on random, and then post the first two lines of 50 songs.  Then you, O reading faithful, identify them.  Fairly simple, I should think.  Now let's see what you think of my appalling taste in music.

We Share Our Mother's Health- The Knife

The music video is creepy as fuck, but it's an absolutely genius song. I've been listening to it for a good two days straight.




We came down from the north
Blue hands and a torch
Red wine, food for free
A possibility
We share our mothers' health
It is what we've been dealt
What's in it for me?
Fine
Then I'll agree

Trees there will be
Apples, fruits maybe
You know what I fear
The end is always near

Trees there will be
Apples, fruits maybe
You know what I fear
The end is always near

Say you like it
Say you need it
When you don't
Looking better
Shining brighter
Than you do

Say you like it
Say you need it
When you don't
Looking better
Shining brighter
Than you do

It is what we've been dealt
What's in it for me?

Hum.  Mike and I snogged again.  It was rather lovely, and this time did not involve any awkwardness.  I feel like perhaps I ought to feel bad, considering the way he treated me last time, but I don't.  I initiated it, I'm cool with it.  Hopefully, he is too.

On another note, this song- 'Walking in the Air'- is the most ridiculously fucking gorgeous thing ever.  If any of you are familiar with the short Christmas film, The Snowman, it's the song played when James and the eponymous Snowman are flying to the Arctic.  Just... this gorgeous boy soprano, so fantastically pure and high and... guh.  And he's a rather lovely lilt of a Welsh accent to him as well.  Search it out, if you can find it.  Fucking beautiful.

I am at the moment rp'ing Bertie Wooster with Captain Jack Sparrow, and they're really getting on surprisingly well.  There will be sex, of course.

I have arrived at the sad conclusion that I possess quite literally no willpower.  None at all.  Whatsoever.   I need, like, pills or something.  Well no, not pills, but perhaps a swift kick to the arse or a twat 'round the head to get me doing what I'm supposed to be doing at any given time.

In other news, I've discovered that I actually like Amy Winehouse's music.  This is slightly disturbing, as I have always disdained her very much as a person.  Oh well.  It's quite groovy stuff.  And I can sing it, at that- it is exactly in my range and in a style which my voice suits admirably.  Good times.

hobbit_feets: (Feel It)
I was listening to Les Miserables last night, and it was just the oddest thing- the instant I did, my head was just filled with all sorts of sense memories that are associated with Les Miz for me- lying on the rug in our living room, the smell of stir fry coming from the kitchen, or sitting in the car on a long trip, staring out the window and absently eating one of those cheap truffles you can buy in bulk at Rainbow.  'Cos Les Miz- that's my childhood music; I grew up listening to that.  I cannot, in absolute fact, remember a time when I didn't know all the words to it.  So it was a bit lovely, sort of getting transported back by that.

In other news, I love my hair.  I absolutely, absolutely do.  Just, it was behaving today and I was suddenly struck by how ridiculously fond of it I am.  For those of you who don't know me, my hair is a lovely sort of dark red (entirely natural- I balk at the thought of dying it), and it's not that long- about halfway down my back in the back and to just under my breasts in the front- but there's a bloody lot of it.  It's wider than my shoulders, and all wavy and full of frizz and madness.  A bit of a mane, really. 

Anyway, enough of my narcissism.  I just like my hair.  And I am very happy today, even though I had an essay that was due that I didn't write at all, and then skipped the class in order to avoid having to explain that I chose to sleep rather than read the book and write the essay pertaining thereto.  Eh.

Singing, Singing
O, the singing!
There was so much singing then
We all sang,
And this was my pleasure too.
The boys in the fields
The chapels
Full of singing
Always full of singing
Here I lie,
Here I lie-
I have had pleasure enough;
I have had singing
I have had singing

'I Have Had Singing'- Stephen Sametz

Search this song on YouTube or something, if you would.  It is one of the most sublimely joyful songs I have ever heard.  I sang this last year with my school choir and with the State Honours Choir, and I would get absolutely giddy with the sheer happiness of it- it is beautiful.  So, so beautiful.  I can't find an mp3 of it anywhere, which is absolutely tragic, but it is on YouTube, so I make due.

hobbit_feets: (A Little Danger)
I feel extremely strange- I'm downloading, of all things, various hymns that we sang at me church and school all the time when I was but a wee bairn- Thy Word is a Lamp, Taste and See, On Eagle's Wings, Make Me A Channel of Your Peace.  Fear not; I've not gone all religious, I'm just... enjoying the music.  Curious as that seems.  I dunno if it reminds me of cantoring or what, but it is producing a distinctly fuzzy feeling.  Perhaps just because they were once all so familiar; it's like digging out an old blanket or some such.

The five songs that no-one was able to guess from the lyrics meme I posted a while ago...  Good work, people though, I must say.  Even the mostly obscure ones were guessed.
