Music meme

(edited 07:45 27.02.2007 PST), and I messed that up. I lost all the comments. Sorry.

OK, there you go. So what does my music tastes sound like?

Horked lomaprieta and one of her friends…

Step 1: Put your music player of choice on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song. (Although I may, as lomaprieta did, strike some because the first line is the song title, such as S&G’s “Cecelia”. And if you have instrumentals, as doG knows I do with Jean-Michel Jarre, those have to be skipped, because “de-dum de-dum de-dum-dum-duuuuuuuuuuuum” is just so identifiable…and bonus points to those who identify that!)
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Webcheating is frowned upon! God kills puppies and kitties when you cheat, and he doesn’t kill them quickly either.

Be forewarned – some French stuff will show up. Tough, as William Shakespeare used to say. And some Brazilian Portuguese. But there’s no German, except for 5 songs, and I doubt they’ll show up amongst the almost 2000 songs…

zu das Musik!

Movie post!

I’m going to start a movie (theater) post, à la jumbach and lomaprieta. DVDs, probably not, unless it’s significant.

First, a special note from the Oscars (2007.02.25). Catherine Deneuve – yum. She’s still on my list.

2007.02.24 – Music and Lyrics, Century 14, Roseville, $6.75
Not bad…Drew Barrymore is aging gracefully. And that was Hugh Grant singing. He’s one of those where his singing voice doesn’t match his spoken voice. I’ve also noticed over the years that British singers usually lose a lot of their accent when singing. For anyone who didn’t grow up in the 1980’s, that opening number is, well, spot on. Those were our music videos, folks. A lot tamer.

2007.02.15 – Because I Said So, Century 14, Roseville, $6.75
Sadly, the best thing I can say about this movie is how good all 4 lead ladies look.

2006.10.26 – Friends With Money, Gaumont Champs-Elysées Marignan, 8,00€
Version originale, avec soustitres. One of the things I love to do when traveling overseas is to experience seeing a movie. France is no exception. We had wanted to see this when it came out, but it was so fleeting in Sacramento we never had a chance. I had a lot of fun picking out the locations in West Los Angeles, which is something I always like to do for movies shot in Los Angeles.
