Tagged For Seven Song Thing
Tagged by: velocibadgergirl @ Pardon the Egg Salad
So, the deal is I have to name seven songs that have been in my life recently. This turned out to be harder than I expected. All seven of these are songs I like, but most of them don't really have any significance, other than at some point in about the past month I got hooked on them for a few days or weeks. There is no significance to the order in which I will list the seven songs.
City of Blinding Lights by U2
This is one of my favorite U2 songs and, in polyphonic form, it has been my ring tone since sometime in January. Of course I love almost every U2 song, since they are one of my most favorite, favorite bands.
The Middle by Jimmy Eat World
I totally missed the little Jimmy Eat World phase the rest of the country seemed to be going through a few years ago. I heard the name around, and I saw T-shirts at the mall, but I couldn't have told you anything about them; not even a song title. About six months ago, I decided I really liked this song and it took me until a couple of weeks ago to find out who it was by. Today I've been listening to this song and another Jimmy Eat World song called A Praise Chorus to try and make myself feel better about not even being interviewed for a promotion that I really, really wanted. It's helped a little, maybe.
Here (In Your Arms) by Hellogoodbye
The album this is on is catchy in a general sort of way, but this is the only song that really stuck with me, and by the time I was ready to return the CD to the library, this was pretty much the only song I was listening to.
Whistles the Wind by Flogging Molly
This is a song off of what seems to be my favorite album by one of my favorite bands. I found myself skipping to this song a lot the last time this disc had a turn in my car's CD player.
Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash
I'm still exploring the works of Johnny Cash, but so far this is one of my favorites. I actually first heard it sung by Joaquin Phoenix in the movie Walk the Line, so the first few times I heard the original version, the horns kind of freaked me out, but they're starting to grow on me.
My Immortal by Evanescence
I just got a wild hair to get out the album this is one for the first time in over a year sometime last week. This is my favorite song from the album, although I like several other songs on it too. I actually like the version without the rock-ending best. The radio version (with the rock ending) is good too, though. I still haven't listened to the new Evanescence album.
Not Ready To Make Nice by the Dixie Chicks
The Dixie Chicks are another favorite band of mine, and this is my favorite song by them. They might be the only band I like this much that I can say so easily which song is my favorite.

Those are the words that came out of my mouth when I finished reading this. Thanks, thanks a bunch. Though...it doesn't mean I'll do it anytime soon. ;)
Oh, and "A Praise Chorus"...I adore that song..it's pretty much the reason I did the bad thing I'm known to do, and checked out the CD from the library and copied it for myself. But I fell in love with it about 4 years ago...you're a little slow sometimes, aren't you... :D
And the new Evanescence CD is pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.
