Kickin’ It Day 16: Favourite Songs

I’ve gone over to the dark—I mean Canadian—side with you and your u’s. 😀 After all, we wouldn’t even have a Kickin’ It Old Skool Blogathon if it weren’t for our lovable Canadian friends, Jamie and Shannon!

I glanced at everyone else’s posts so far today, and I noticed that the vibe is non-OCD, which is a relief, so here’s my haphazard, unsystematic, noncomprehensive list of “favourite” music-type thingies:

1. Almost anything by Storyhill, including a lot of Chris and Johnny’s separate work. Fave off their last CD: Well of Sorrow.

2. Carrie Elkin’s Jesse Likes Birds

3. Dan Wilson’s Against History

4. Peter Mayer’s “The Birthday Party”

5. The Gear Daddies’ Cut Me Off

6. Lyle Lovett’s Long Tall Texan

7. The Monkees’ Sometime in the Morning

8. The Monkees’ Daily Nightly

9. Cat Stevens’s Can’t Keep It In

10. The Beatles’ All You Need Is Love (Oh my gosh, how did I forget to put Yellow Submarine, and let’s face it, The Beatles Anthology, on my favourite movies list?)

11. Andrew Bird’s Two Way Action

12. Stuart Davis’s Universe Communion

13. Nirvana’s All Apologies

14. REM’s Radio Free Europe

15. Train’s Drops of Jupiter

16. The Byrds’ Eight Miles High

17. Pearl Jam’s Alive

18. Fun.’s Some Nights

19. Fun’s Carry On

I like melody, harmony, passion, and great lyrics. Though for the poverty of its lyrics, I hold a special place in my heart for The Turtles’ “Elenore.”

    What a rich wonderful eclectic list Kelly! There were several new finds here for me which is always a delight. And I have to say Jesse Loves Birds makes me smile so much it may make my next favorite list as well.
