Music to something or other by

I've been tagged by Annah of Fashion, art and mess to do that 7 songs you're into thingy. This is going to make everyone think that I am a) old and b) weird but here goes:

"That's not my name" The Ting Tings
Great song that oddly sounds better coming out of a radio or the lousy speakers in my car than it does on the fancy amp and speakers in the livingroom.

"Let me think about it" Ida Corr vs. Fedde Le Grand
I don't generally do dance-type music but I do play it when I'm exercising or attempting to psyche myself into doing housework. This one is guarranteed to make me bounce around.

"Pour some sugar on me" Def Leppard
Probably my all time favourite song. I've been a fan since the 80's. I love rock music, but only if I can still hear the words and they don't have up-their-own-bottoms 5 minute guitar solos (yes Van Halen, I am looking at you!).

"Mistress Mabel" The Fratellis
New song from the Fratellis that is being played a lot on the radio. I like their music because it is upbeat and retro sounding.

"Time Warp" Rocky Horror Show cast
Love this film. Go watch it! Then find a singalong/stage show and go in costume!

"Psychosis safari" Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster
I don't even know how to describe this one. High intensity rock maybe? Anyway, mad band with strange songs.

"The Carny" Nick Cave
Another weird one. This is a very creepy atmospheric song. I wouldn't say I liked it as such but it is oddly very compelling.



I tag:
A cat of impossible colour &
Cheapskate chic because everyone else I would have picked has already been tagged.
