But it ain't even sock weather no more

Deborah tagged me to name what five songs knock my socks off.

These are in no particular order.

1. Waiting Room--Fugazi
2. Second Skin--Widespread Panic
3. Heroin--The Velvet Underground
4. 99 Problems--Jay-Z (& DJ Danger Mouse)
5. The Killing Moon--Echo and the Bunnymen

I'm sure these reveal a great deal--or nothing at all--about me.

I'm tagging Stephanie, Oliver, Gary, and Sara (no escaping me!) for this one.

I just now, before coming to your blog, finished listening to "Heroin" by the VU. Freaky!

Steven D. Schroeder said...

Ooh, Waiting Room. Good call. I also like Cashout and Repeater a lot.

Waiting Room! Of course. One of my favorites, yet I'm having a hard time coming up with the next one for some reason.

Sara said...

What is the exact definition of "knock your socks off"? I just want to make sure I'm doing this right... : )

"Heroin" does to me in 7:05 almost exactly what Bowie's "Life On Mars?" takes care of in 3:54. To avoid the tag, take Deltron's "Madness", Herbaliser's "Unsungsong", and Tom Wait's "Never Let Go"...or pick almost any 5 songs by Tom Waits.
Yeah.

Stephanie King said...

Hmm. I'm really going to have to think abouot this one a little bit before I make my list.

Deb--thanks!

Sara, I don't think you can do this wrong. Just five songs that make you want to jump out of your seat.

Oliver de la Paz said...
