    I'm just listening to "[track]Save Tonight[/track]" by Eagle-Eye Cherry...

    Every time I listen to it it makes me think of The Last Supper. All the references to wine and delaying misery and the singer not being around tomorrow... just a thought.

    Oh and another radmom thought of mine is that "[track]Leave A Light On[/track]" by Belinda Carlisle reminds me of the Parable of the Ten Virgins... LOL maybe i need to get out more!

    Pet Shop Boys 1994 (Sydney Entertainment Centre). Absolutely horrendous, dire, rancid, putrid, atrocious…… I’m still a fan, but I don’t think I’d ever be tempted to see the live again

    Okay, TupperwareQueen did it and it was funny, but maybe her song titles were just funny.

    Shuffle your playlist, etc., etc., and use it to answer the following questions:

    Why are you taking yet another shuffle quiz?
    Song: Twenty Something
    Artist: The Welfare $tarlets
    Comment: I've got about twenty minutes to kill...?

    What's currently in your fridge?
    Song: Wexstun Burns The Money
    Artist: Stan Ridgway
    Comment: Burnt money, apparently. I don't know why we don't just throw this stuff out.

    Your biggest nightmare?
    Song: Wake Up
    Artist: Alanis Morissette
    Comment: Sort of like in the first issue of Sandman, where you keep having nightmares and waking up and discovering that you're in yet another nightmare...

    What place would you like to visit?
    Song: Little Seahorse
    Artist: Bruce Cockburn
    Comment: Sea World. (Because the actual ocean is much too scary.)

    A reason to commit suicide?
    Song: Murder
    Artist: Alana Davis

  • God bless Belinda Carlisle

    Bless her to her cotton socks (or pants if the rumours are true)

    She is coming all the way to Holmfirth, England (http://www.picturedrome.net/home.htm) to play live!

    Belinda Carlisle famed for hits like Cirle in the Sand, Leave the light on for me and more is playing a grand total of 2 gigs in Blighty and I am luck enough to live close to one of the venues.

    May sound like I am taking the mick a little but I assure you I am not. I remember prancing around my friends bedroom to her hits and singing my little heart out (and still do just instead dancing round my front room when no one is looking).

    Hopefully I can get to go, best get on with learning the words :-)

  • First try

    Hoh, never knew there were so many people listening to good music out there. Or, well, in theory I knew, just haven't seen it with my own eyes before.
    I got an mp3-player for christmas. I'm a bit conservative sometimes and was planning on holding on to my cd-walkman and using the mp3-player for running. Heh. Good luck running with your converses in snow slush, Lillieanne, great plan. Anyway, I thought I'd try out this thing anyway when I recently had an 80's period. And by that I don't mean I was listening to Felt, McCarthy or Josef K, nope, it was strictly Alphaville, Duran Duran, The Human League, Kajagoogoo, Bronski Beat and ABC. And so on. (Yes, I'm flattering myself by not mentioning John Waite, Mr Mister and Belinda Carlisle.) Don't know what happened really. I made a mix cd with 80's music for me and my flatmate to listen to while cleaning the apartment and before we knew it we were listening to nothing but hits of the 80's. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah, it's been a while since I've listened to electronica…
