So what was the last song you listened to? And do you feel good, bad or indifferent about it?

For me:

Billy Bragg - Sulk

and I feel better than good about it. It's one of my favourite tunes which is what made me think of starting yet another one of these threads. I find them good for inspiration.

Chet Baker "summertime" .....just an instrumental piece...does that count? It's from this album Jazz in Paris, I never grow tired of it!

"Santa Claus is Coming to Town" on two separate movies, amazingly enough biggrin.gif I feel neutral to positive about this.

Last song NOT in a movie? "Walking with a Ghost" by Tegan and Sara. Normally would feel okay about this but it has become our 2yo's favorite and she begs us to play it over and over...and over.

I inadvertently listened to 'We are never getting back together' (or something along those lines).  

'Weeee-eeeee' Urgh.

Stupid shopping centre playing teeny bopper songs...

Dear Science - Seth Sentry. I smiled when I was thinking about how it made me feel, so happy I guess. Very clever song.

ETA: If anyone ever lived in a share house when they were younger, have a listen to 'Room for rent' by him also, pure gold. And 'Thanks for your hospitality' for anyone that has worked in a restuarant. The kid's tallented with words  biggrin.gif

I finally gave the kids permission to put on the Christmas CD this week. It is banned from Dec 26 to Nov 30 because they love it so it would be on every week otherwise.

Golly I love this song, and that live version is just wonderful.


Anyway, the last song I listened to was Just Like Heaven by The Cure. This song always gets my toddler dancing! And what's not to be happy about a toddler dancing? original.gif

A disclaimer before I admit this. I am not really into top 40 or dance music. And I did not actively choose to listen to this.

Gangnam style. LOL. ohmy.gif

I was at my son's assembly at his school this afternoon and the whole school got up and did this dance/exercise routine to that song!

Although we are trying to instil good music choices for our 6 year old, he does like his dance music!!!!!
