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.

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

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!
