Talking of spreading the love…
I’ve been tagged by my lovely friend Andie on her Little Bits of Waffle blog. I’ve never been tagged before so I might not be doing it right, but here goes.
It’s Mammy Woo’s Music Therapy meme. All I have to do is pick 3 pieces of music that move me…
Number one is easy… always at the top of my list. I melt every time as soon as I hear the guitar chords at the beginning. I couldn’t find a decent video of the song with good sound quality so this one will have to do. At least the music is right. It’s Alison by Elvis Costello:
Number 2 has a similar effect Witchita Lineman by Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb. Again I’ve had to go for the non video video because I’m a purist, I love this so much and all of the live versions on YouTube hit a bum note with me. Not Glenn Campbells fault it’s just that I know this version so well that every difference grates on me.
Bonkers, camp and slightly ridiculous I know but this gives me goosepimples every time and as a child used to really fire my imagination it’s Keith West’s Excerpt from a Teenage Opera:
Now I think I am supposed to tag other people… I had better ask them if it’s OK first… I’ll get back to you.
