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.
