Top Ten Songs - Number 10

I am a huge music fan. I listen to music every chance I can. Live music is better, but with my iPod, I can make do with a good set of headphones. I love music. So I offer this challenge to my friends, family, and readers. Share your list of top ten songs. Post them here if you wish, or post them back at your own blog. Post all ten, or post them one at at time, it does not matter. The goal is ten songs and ten stories.

I'll start with Number 10.

This Must Be The Place by the Talking Heads off Speaking in Tongues. I saw it performed live a very long time ago.

Why?

Home is where i want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb - burn with a weak heart
(so i) guess i must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It's ok i know nothing's wrong . . nothing

I hear these lyrics, the guitar and bass play some funky drone, and it suddenly seems that I cannot be sad. I smile, I sing along, I'm taken to my music happy place. It is a funky love song by an oddly talented musical genius named David Byrne and I love it. I sing along as loud as I can, I screw up every tine. I don't care. The song makes me happy.

This is serendipity; I was about to get on to music whilst exploring the notion of beauty.

So, this top 10 is a great idea. I'm on it ;)

Talking Heads / David Byrne are superb! Much approval here ;)

You are so cool to do this! I love that video, the bit with the lamp was cool.You're going to end up with a lot of vids on your site! It's going to be hard to choose the top ten, lots of thought will have to be put in it.

Okay, how do I get a video in your comment section?

Mojoey said...

Tina - sorry, but you cannot post a video, only a link. It is some blogger rule.

Jamon - I've started a music/art project with a friend. He will write a song for each of five pictures I give him. In turn, I will take a photo for each of five new songs he gives me. We want to explore perception of beauty. It should be fun.

That is a superb idea Mojoey! I can't wait to see the results.

The premise reminds me of a blog on my roll -Synchronicity of Indeterminacy where a random photo provokes a short story.
