Blog Tag: 7 Songs I Like

Ah yes. Blog tag. I remember when I was a child and all the neighborhood kids would hop on their wireless laptops and IM each other and then play a rollicking game of blog tag.

Okay, I'm lying. Maybe this will be a childhood memory for a new generation. But I digress ...

I have been tagged by blogger Jay Moonah to list "7 Songs I Like." This is similar to the 5 Things You Didn't Know About Me meme I participated in a few months ago.

Well, you know me, I just can't play by the rules. So I'm putting my own spin on things. I'll give you seven songs from some of my favorite indie artists, then my top seven from more established artists.

So here goes:
Check out these artists. They're awesome. And now for songs you're more likely to recognize:
  • "Accidents Will Happen" - Elvis Costello
  • "Tempted" - Squeeze
  • "Don't Dream It's Over" - Crowded House
  • "New Sensation" - INXS
  • "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" - Jet
  • "Behind a Wall of Sleep" - The Smithereens
  • "Come Together" - The Beatles
Geez, my tastes are obviously stuck mostly in the '80s. This was really hard. On another week, I probably would have picked seven different songs.

Instead of tagging more bloggers, I will issue a general public challenge. Feel free to list the top 7 Songs You Like, then come back here and add a link to your list in the comments below.

Hey Bob,

Being an Aussie it's good to see that 3 of the 7 songs are from Aussie acts.

I agree, "Behind the wall of sleep" is a crackin' song.
