And back to music... @ 10:57 pm

temper: sick sick
soundtrack: Best In the Town - Gomez

A meme that I've had kicking round for a couple of weeks (from quenya_tattoo, which given that it's about music, will surprise no one). The idea is to post here, so that I can pick three bands that I know you're into, which you then choose your top 10 favourite songs for. And list them.

So, onto the ones she picked for me... whee!

Gomez
This one was hard just for the need to resist the urge to just go for ten songs from Bring It On (I was tempted). As it is... well, there's still quite a few. But there's a bit of variety, really!

10. Free to Run (BIO)
9. Ping One Down (IOG)
8. Best In the Town (FMIAH)
7. Machismo
6. Notice (HWO)
5. Tijuana Lady (BIO)
4. Girlshapedlovedrug (HWO)
3. Rhythm & Blues Alibi (LS)
2. Bubble Gum Years (BIO)
1. Get Miles (BIO)


Manic Street Preachers
Most of these picked themselves, weirdly enough, and the ordering was a lot easier than for the other groups (especially the top four, which just weirdly slotted into place by themselves... not sure why that was). But with variety in albums!

10. Ocean Spray (KYE)
9. You Stole the Sun From My Heart (TIMTTMY)
8. Your Love Alone Is Not Enough (SATT)
7. Suicide is Painless (Theme from M.A.S.H.) (FD)
6. Motorcycle Emptiness (GT)
5. Ready for Drowning (TIMTTMY)
4. If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next (TIMTTMY)
3. Methadone Pretty (GT)
2. Imperial Bodybags (SATT)
1. A Design for Life (EMG)


Super Furry Animals
Another one dominated greatly by the first album I ever had of theirs (also their best... but clearly I would think that). It wasn't so hard to pick the top 10, but amazingly hard sorting them into any sort of order. Go figure.

10. Fire In My Heart (G)
9. Into the Night (HV)
8. Hermann Loves Pauline (R)
7. Liberty Belle (PP)
6. God! Show Me Magic (FL)
5. Hello Sunshine (PP)
4. She’s Got Spies (R)
3. Baby Ate My Eightball (HV)
2. Play It Cool (R)
1. Demons (R)

BRMC
Bonus! Just to please Katey, because let's face it, no one else will bother reading anyway... Dominated by Howl/Howl Sessions, of course... and general the Howl-esque parts of other albums. I'm not predictable at all, no.

10. Grind My Bones (HS)
9. Need Some Air (B81)
8. Salvation (BRMC)
7. Restless Sinner (H)
6. The Line (H)
5. And I’m Aching (TTOOYO)
4. Shuffle Your Feet (H)
3. Shade of Blue (TTOOYO)
2. All You Do Is Talk (B81)
1. Fault Line (H)

I bothered! Even though I'm probably only acquainted with a third of the songs you listed, at best, I just cannot overcome my inherent nosiness.

Don't feel in any way obliged to put the list thingie whammy on me, though. I believe it is a well-documented fact by now that my musical tastes mostly just annoy you. >.>

Also, feel better soon!
