7 top songs of the moment meme

I don't remember who all tagged me (though I think aubkabob and kevloid did), but I'm going to imitate a meme:

List 7 songs that you're really digging right now -- not your favorites of all time, but your favorites of the moment. and tag 7 friends to do the same.

1. "Six-Seven Times" by Flunk. I love the bass in that song, I love her voice, I love the lyrics and how they flow with and against the music... And such a sexy rhythm... mmmmm...
2. "Vinegar & Salt" by Hooverphonic. I'm not sure why really, I'm just addicted to it. And you know it has to be pretty awesome if I love it despite the fact that it contains the line "sometimes it's better to lie." OMG I love that song. I've listened to it a ridiculous amount of times.
3. "On My Balcony" by Flunk. Mainly because it reminds me of what shioneh said about her balcony, and I feel like singing it somehow changes that -- I know, it makes no sense. But I've been thinking about mailing her that song, it's so full of hope and beauty.
4. "Hide You" by Kosheen. I love the beat, her voice (very similar to mine), the lyrics to the song! "I'll hide you away from the world you rejected..."
5. "Face In A Crowd" by Kosheen. I love the concept of the song, and as with all other Kosheen songs, the music is flawless and fascinating. And the lyrics are incredible.
6. "(Not The Average Girl From Your) Video" by India Arie. I LOVE the body positivity of this song, and the beat -- it makes me dance every time I hear it, and I usually sing along.
7. "Rainy Season" by Vacant Stairs (featuring my aubkabob!). I really relate to the song (I sing it all the time now) and I love listening to Aubrey's voice. She's incredible!

I'm tagging...

belenen ══╣teasing╠══
oh you silly. I'll remember to tag you next time! ;-)
aubkabob ══╣╠══
i seriously almost choked on my tea when i read that! thank you, i'm blushing terribly!

hopefully, one day, i'll be able to do it acoustically, the way it was supposed to be done, instead of this happy thing you're listening to!
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
hee hee, yay! ;-)

it still really warms my heart to read that! it seems like the vacant stairs was a part of someone else's life, it happened so long ago. the band definitely served its purpose, though - i realized that i CAN be a musician and be in a band, i met ben, etc.

i'm hoping to create more things once i get my musical nook set up in my room where i can have my keyboards to practice and everything else - guitar stands, my lesson books, etc.

"give peace a chance" by john lennon, because of a documentary i saw on the recording of it during the legendary "bed in" in toronto in 1969. saw the documentary 2 nights ago and am still jazzed.

"when god made me" from neil young's brand new "prairie wind" album -- a great spiritual song, sung with the fisk university jubilee choir.

bach's cello suite no. 5 in C minor -- because i'm doing some research into bach cello music.

"drinkin' my cigarettes (smokin' my whiskey)" by, er, me -- because i'm in the process of writing it and i love writing songs using someone else as a narrative voice.

"start thinking in a brand new way" again by me, because i'm performing it (and a few other songs) for 650 kids next week and i haven't played it in 9 months and was in our board room earlier in the day practicing.

"once in a lifetime" by the talking heads -- um, because it rocks?

"pride (in the name of love)" by U2, because it is on the radio right now and i love it!

how's that?
belenen ══╣curious╠══
oooh, so how did you end up agreeing to perform for 650 kids?

I love that song by U2 also -- I haven't heard the others. ;-)
