I found two unmarked CD’s in my CD holder last week and as I was loading photos on to Flikr, and hoping they were some of the 400 photos I’m missing so far, I stuck it in the drive to find out what was what.
They weren’t photos, as I had hoped, but something even more interesting – two CD’s chock full of MP3’s my ex had copied for me from his old computer.
Some of them were total, utter crap – the kind of music I would be unlikely to listen to if you paid me – but a lot of it was great. Nineties songs and bands I had loved, earlier stuff & fairly recent stuff all vying for my attention. And that was so like our relationship, really. For every ten crap songs, there is a sold gold favourite of mine I had never been able to track down. So I thought I‘d stick a list of the songs I’ve been playing in the last few days.
Ant, you will notice there is not a single Beatles track amongst them.
Colour Blind – Counting Crows
Mope – Bloodhound Gang (Who doesn’t love the Pacman bit in this song?)
Louis Burdett – The Whitlams Live (I have no idea why I don’t have a live version of this song on MP3, but I don’t)
Lemon – U2
Cornflake Girl – Tori Amos
Comin’ up from Behind – Marcy Playground (I actually squealed when I found this. Ten years ago I LOVED this song. This and Sex and Candy by the same band are the nineties for me)
The One – Foo Fighters
Fast as you Can – Fiona Apple
Bastard Son – George (I always preferred Tyrone to Katie Noonan)
Get Off – Dandy Warhols (In my opinion, their finest song. When I find a place that has this as a Karoke song, I’m set. Alternatively, someone who can play the guitar bits)
Sheep go to Heaven - Cake (All of a sudden I’m 16, at Melbourne Central with a giant sheep someone won at the Show, letting it slide down the middle barrier of the escalators down to the station, laughing hysterically as people are startled by a large sheep gathering speed. We were SO cool)
Bohemian Like You – Dandy’s again. Before they became every ad on TV
Insomnia – Faithless
I love you, But…. – Friendly
Sexxlaws – Beck
Your Woman – White town
Bonus points if you can tell me what song the title of this post is from. Think late nineties/Early 2000
