I love fruit - if I could I think I might live on it ... so, thank you teragramm for my lovely gift ... now I can help myself whenever I open up my LJ!
And, I have time to do one of two memes that I have. This first is a music meme -
1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List 5 songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions
so kaczurda gave me the letter B
Bad - James Marsters
Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley
Bye Bye Love - Everly Brothers
Brothers in Arms - Dire Staights
Begin the Beguine - Ella Fitzgrald
and an extra - Blocking Brainwaves - Ghost of the Robot
Although James wrote this about his own meeting with someone, those first few lines are the thought that all fans have for that couple of seconds that we get our hug and photo ... so will bring back memories to many, other than myself.
Blue Suede Shoes -
I am an Elvis Presley fan - and this is one of the "great" early songs - and a favourite with many, including myself ... Elvis at his best.
Bye Bye Love -
Again, I'm a fan of the Everly Brothers, and this clip shows just how young they were when they started, yet even with their "falling out" their music has continued to survive and be loved by many.
Brothers in Arms -
As I thought of the letter B this song came to ind, which I will admit I hadn't listened to in a long time. It is great, musically, but also brings back memories of when Tim and Claire were "courting" - it was a favourite album of theirs, and as they didn't have a car, I would get in mine, turn on ... and hear a track from the album.
Begin the Beguine -
Another favourite is Cole Porter - his music plus lyrics combination were brilliant - and this is one of his more famous pieces.
Blocking Brainwaves -
As I'd already had James earlier I used this as an addition - I love the music of Ghost of the Robot ... and this is a great song to show the talent, and the fun they obviously had back then ... and look like they are having again now.
