SongsWell, this weekend was a washout for blogging! Good job, as Kim has frequently pointed out, not too many people read blogs on the weekend.
In the meantime, Neonatal Doc has tagged me with the "Songs of the Moment" meme. Some of these aren't terribly current:
1. Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars.
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Apparently this one was on Gray's Anatomy. They've been playing it here a bit, coinciding with a difficult week it seemed to speak volumes.
2. The Martinis, Free.
Omniprescent phrase in my mind
Spoken word I've heard one million times
Who are you to tell me that I'll always be this way
I close my eyes and I turn around
Leave it all behind
Sometimes simple is best.
3. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soul to Squeeze.
I got a bad disease
Up from my brain is where I bleed
Insanity it seems
It's got me by my soul to squeeze
4. Goldenhorse, Dark Forest.
Underground the roots are your hair
And the leaves, leaves are your hair
Behind your changing face
Many times we try
Caught there by the tide
We walked into the light
But we couldn't find her
We didn't find her
Fantastic New Zealand band, do yourself a favour and check these guys out. Off-beat melodic pop.
5. The Muttonbirds, Anchor Me
Another classic from the land of the long white cloud. This is a Don McGlashan song that was covered by a group of artists recently for the anniversary of the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior.
How many was I supposed to do? Bugger it, I'll finish this later. The last of the sun is shining outside!
