Extra Savoir-Faire A Music Meme


That darn Fran I Am tagged me for this music meme. It is an interesting exercise, to say the least. Some of the responses are funny, others make no sense what so ever. It reminds me of those things the girls did in seventh grade with that cootie-catcher or whatever the heck that paper thing they would put on their fingers was called. They'd ask a question and then open that thing several times and read the response. But this is better because it's electric! Electric is always better! So, here it goes:

The rules:

1. Put your music player on Shuffle
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER WHAT(this is in capital letters, so it is very serious.

1. IF SOMEONE SAYS “IS THIS OKAY” YOU SAY? Cold, Cold Ground - Tom Waits

2. WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY? Veni Creator Spiritus - The Hilliard Ensemble

I am roaring- this came out even better than I dared to dream Padre. Muchismas gracias for playing along with this little jugete.

Your list and mine have that certain modern meets ancient world feel. Your secret- Benedicamus Domino. I'll say.

Although yours is blessedly free of that evil hip hop I have been known to savor.

And you tagged Matty. He might have been able to say no to me or ignore me, but less so with you.

That is how the twisted mind of FranIam works, I did think of this. His will no doubt be excellente as well.

Presumably I can find the others easily on your blogroll. I do se Pseudopiskie over at Grandmere's (hi!) all the time.

I've done mine. You said I might want to kill you, but mine is so depressing, you might want to kill yourself.

And here's the fun part! The more you know about the songs, the more depressing it gets! Yay!

I have to confess I gatecrashed your party, untagged. Truly, it was me. I did it.

Some of the answers were priceless, but in order not to spoil your reputation with Gallito Mescalito and his select circle, I'll not mention them here.

Shh!

This is a HOWL. Thanks.

Thanks for tagging me but all I have on my iPod Touch so far is the Berlioz Requiem. My favorite requiem but not very useful for this sort of exercise. Even my iTunes has only the Requiem and the choral bits of an opera we did in September. I've been meaning to do something about that but all my CDs are packed away for now.

I'd like to see Caminante's.

I See You!
