my music picks

i've been tagged by my psycho bud, health-pych

here are the tag rules:

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Live Journal/blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

mckay says: if i had an ipod these songs would be on it.

mckay's angle: has an odd assortment of homemade music videos people have posted. you can listen to my song picks, but close your eyes, as most of the videos don't fit the song - or me - at all.

Maroon 5 – sweetest goodbye

Blue October – calling you (ignore the video, just listen to the music)

Steve Tyrell – the way you look tonight (again, please close your eyes. you must ignore the video. steve tyrell sings a great rendition of my all time favorite song. This is the song I sing to my son, and now he sings it back to me)

Death Cab for Cutie – sound of settling (close your eyes and listen. this song always reminds me of saturday mornings at my former home; mowing the lawn then relaxing in a warm bubble bath, to this cd)

Nickleback – I walk alone (so me these days)

(you know not to watch the video, right? you get that. this is not 'my fav videos' blog. just the song-except for the screeching part at the end. that wasn't on the cd...okay. go)

The beatles – in my life (a song so great, it needs no explanation)

john mayer – st. patrick’s day (my favorite holiday song)

do any of these songs speak to you?
i tag 7 lurkers who never post comments.

LOL!!! I love the fact that you tagged lurkers that don't leave comments! That's classic, I've never heard someone say that. I have lurkers too and I always want to say "WHO ARE YOU? TALK TO ME!?!"

Great songs. What a neat idea to post the video so we could listen.
Love the tag!

I can't listen because I am using the laptop that has no sound. Darn it!

I like these choices of yours:
The Way You Look Tonight (great song)
I Walk Alone (good song too)
Anything by the Beatles is good to me
John Mayer is super talented!! (love his stuff)

It's great that you posted You Tube videos as a way for us to hear your songs. I just wish I could actually hear them right now. Oh well...
You are a computer smartie! I'd have to ask my kids how to post a You Tube video to my blog because I suck at computer stuff.

I like your tag too. Now I don't feel obligated to figure out the names and artists of the music I listen to. I just don't really keep up anymore.

Besides, I'm listening to more "smooth jazz" (idk, that's what the radio station calls it) and have no idea, for the most part, who is who.

Like you post though, it looks like it took quite a little time to put together.

I trust you had a wonderful weekend?
