Tuesday Ten

Dipping back into Carole's topics this week, she suggested listing the first 10 songs that come up when you hit shuffle on your iPod. I replaced iPod with Media Player...the effect is the same. This could be awkward. That's my entire music collection.

1. The Commitments Soundtrack - Destination Anywhere. I do like this soundtrack - lots of opportunities for singing along.

2. The Barber of Seville - Largo Al Factotum. No idea.

3. Fleetwood Mac - Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow. Genius. Totally forgot I had this song.

4. David Guetta - Dreams. An excellent, speedy piece of dance music: ideal for getting the pen moving quickly during a late night marking session. Also, the instrumental pieces on this album remind me of our road trip around California last year. I don't think this is really Mr Z's taste, but we do have a rule that the iPod is controlled by the driver so he was out of luck when I was driving.

5. Tiziano Ferro - Rosso Relativo. Another one that I'm a bit ?? about. I have no idea what they're singing about.

6. Everything But The Girl - Missing. Amazing. 90s nostalgia moment. She has such an amazing voice.

7. Wagner - Bridal Chorus. I can only guess I downloaded this to use in a lesson. I have quite a lot of music for that purpose - many Gregorian chants, for exmaple. It's actually surprisingly nice with the voices over the music.

8. Liberty X - Got To Have Your Love. Sadly not as good as the proper 80s disco original but a passable rendition and reminds me very strongly of doing my PGCE and dancing in Deflter Krug in Bath.

9. Luther Vandross - Give Me The Reason. As if by magic, a track from my 80s Groove collection pops up.

10. Cathy Dennis - Touch Me. I was a huge Cathy Dennis fan in the late 80s. I had her tape and everything; then she went away, came back and covered Waterloo Sunset, and then disappeared again. I was quite sad, but then I heard she wrote both Poison for Britney Spears and Can't Get You Out Of My Head for Kylie, so she is clearly doing absolutely fine. I do love the track from that original album for a bit of nostalgia, though. Really reminds me of being a tween.

Hmm, not too embarrassing. Thanks for the great prompt, Carole!
