seven is a good number

I've been tagged by the amazing Eddie to reveal seven songs I've had on heavy rotation lately. It was hard choosing seven, but I excluded anything from my sidebar and anything I've had recently in my Greatest Lyrics Ever (Marianne Faithfull...)
But here it is: Seven songs I love and recommend you download/hunt down, in semi-alphabetical order (it was supposed to be alphabetical, but then I messed up on Busta Rhymes..if I wanted to be really particular [read: anal] I'd move him down to between Prince and the Rolling Stones)

1. "Moonage Daydream" by David Bowie

My favorite Bowie song. Love it, especially the lyrics. (Photo credit:

2. "Light Your Ass on Fire" by Busta Rhymes ft. Pharell

3. "The Soft Parade" by the Doors
"This is the best part of the trip, this is the trip, the best part, I really like...what'd he say?"
4. "No Sense of Crime" by Van Hunt
Neo-soul man covering Iggy Pop. Brilliant. 5. "Baby Be Mine" by Michael Jackson
As you may (but probably don't) know I'm a recovering Michael Jackson a-d-d-i-c-t. Like seriously, intensely fanatic. So I can't go "Billie Jean" or something. This is probably my favorite track off Thriller.
6. "Sexy Dancer" by Prince
I have to have Prince on her. Early Prince. Sampled by FUCKING Justing Timberfake.
7. "Can't You Hear Me Knocking?" by the Rolling Stones
This is the coolest picture ever of the Stones. I have it as a poster, but my psoter is black and white and so I had a fit when I saw it in colour.
Er, the song's pretty good too.

Continuing the cycle? I encourage anyone who reads my blog to do this on their own blogs. Who knows what delightful picture you might find?

i love how you have 'sexy' as one of the labels for this post, but i agree, music is pretty damn sexy.
I'm going to pretend like you personally tagged me and post this as well!

i think number two was sweet child of mine. it was such a good show you should try to catch it if they do a repeat on mtv or tmf or something like that.
i shall do my top 7 songs soon.

Emma said...

i'm about to do this.
and i read your stirring and compelling argument in your last comment on my blog.
it really made me reassess the situation and reevaluate my thought process in a functional manner.
but i just have one last addendum to my original argument.
mark wahlberg.
that is all.

I have the same "Can't You Hear Me Knocking?" image on a postcard. Sorry to say it - but the sheer awesomeness of the image surpasses that of the song itself.

Alex Richards said...

Damn that is a good list. I love the Stones pic. It's so "soap opera" with the heavy filtration. Brilliant. And any list with Prince on it is OK with me!
