My Top 25

So I normally don't do anything when someone tags me with something in their blog - I kind of hate coming up with "25 weird facts about me" etc. etc. But it's been so long since I've posted anything, and this one is kind of fun and easy (and interesting for me, even though it probably won't be for anyone else), so I'm going to go ahead and do it - and I'll tag anyone else who reads this and wants to be tagged.

  1. "Apocalypse Please," Muse
  2. "I Was Young When I Left Home," Antony with Bryce Dessner
  3. "Thoughts of a Dying Atheist," Muse
  4. "Time is Running Out," Muse
  5. "Sing for Absolution," Muse
  6. "Hysteria," Muse
  7. "Butterflies and Hurricanes," Muse
  8. "Choose Me For Champion," Rasputina
  9. "You and Moon," Adem
  10. "Falling Away With You," Muse
  11. "1816, the Year Without a Summer," Rasputina
  12. "A Retinue of Moons/The Infidel is Me," Rasputina
  13. "Blackout," Muse
  14. "Launch Yourself," Adem
  15. "These Lights are Meaningful," Adem
  16. "Sleepless," The Decemberists
  17. "Cage in a Cave," Rasputina
  18. "The Wanting Comes in Waves/Repaid," The Decemberists
  19. "Stockholm Syndrome," Muse
  20. "Incident in a Medical Clinic," Rasputina
  21. "The Giant of Illinois," Andrew Bird
  22. "Train Song," Feist and Ben Gibbard
  23. "Knotty Pine," Dirty Projectors and David Byrne
  24. "Annan Water," The Decemberists
  25. "You Are the Blood," Sufjan Stevens
Kinda surprised myself there a little with a few of those... OK, your turn.

I think it's amazing you posted today. 5 minutes before reading your post I was literally thinking about how long it had been since you've blogged and how much I miss reading anything that you write. I was going to send you a message pestering you to update...when lo and behold... a new post!!! It's not as meaty as I was hoping for, but I'll take it. I know you write for a living and so it's probably the last thing you want to do during your down time, but gosh, I miss it.

You know what? I have never even heard of a single one of those artists. :)

I am with Marie. I have not heard a single one song from your list. You are too hip for me. I am going to consider myself tagged....unless when I do look at my list it is too large of an embarrassment...

So does that mean I'm hip because I've heard of most of these artists? I'll take it! Good list.
