That darned Meme - Music in My Kitchen
I only just learnt what a Meme was about a week ago, from Ronald who is a finalist in the Meme section of the 2005 Bloggies for his fabulous IMBB site. No sooner did I know what it was than I was hit by one. Queen of Seattle, Viv tagged me first, closely followed by the curious and intriguing little "effer" Alicat.
In our domain Fred is controller of the Music. We live in a loft. There is absolutely NO separation. He is totally OBSESSED with music and sound. If you are interested in what makes him tick, read the story of how we came to get his JBL speakers here . It's a nice little story and one that makes Fred quite happy.
Anyway - onto the Meme...
First, you want to know the total number of music files on my computer?
C'mon - that's just BORING. You don't care in the slightest. Nor do I, so I am not even going to look.
Second, what was the last CD I bought?
Well, I actually bought three at the same time. I don't recall which one went through the cash register last. So, take your pick from:
The Thievery Corporation - The Outernational Sound
Saint Germain des-Pres Cafe - The finest nu-jazz compilation
Cafe del Mar - The Best of compiled by Jose Padilla.
Look: 2 out of 3 had the word "Cafe" in them, can you tell I am a Food blogger?
What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
Dance Naked Under Palm Trees.
Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.
1) The first is actually an album. It's Called Music to Make Love By . It has been my favourite album for about 6 months. I have even been known to approach complete strangers in Virgin and insist that they buy it. And when you are not making love, it's great to cook to too.
2) Tonight by Elton John. When Fred played it for me on his JBL speakers for the first time I could barely speak. I was overcome with emotion. It made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up on end. One of the greatest piano intros ever.
3) Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie. It changed my life over a family Sunday lunch in 1980.
4) Wild is the Wind. Also David Bowie. The most romantic song ever. It almost reduces me to tears every time I hear it.
5) Owner of a Lonely Heart by Yes. Produced by Trevor Horn. Need I say any more?
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
1) Ced . I am sorry Ced, don't do it if you don't want to, but I was kind of wondering if you like M and Serge Gainsbourg and Carla Bruni like we do. Oh shit. Maybe I should have included "Quelqu'un m'a dit" as one of my favourite songs. I really do like that one.
2) Devon Dumpling. Dumpling? who is she kidding? She is as thin as a rake! Plus, she hasn't given us a post in way too long.
3) Del because she sees the world through such beautiful eyes. I want to know what her world sounds like too. That darned Meme - Music in My Kitchen
