musical meme

My fellow Bored Housewife, Melissa, has tagged the rest of us with this meme.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they are any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

Well, I have to say that there are two cds I’m really digging right now, and they’re a kind of strange combination. The first is Jack Johnson’s Curious George soundtrack, which I bought for the Potato, and we’re listening to around the clock here. It’s a really good album, though, so I don’t mind at all. Three songs from there: “Upside Down,” “Talk of the Town,” and “With My Own Two Hands” are my personal favorites.

The other album is Mary J. Blige’s The Breakthrough, which landisdad gave me for Christmas. Of course, there’s the current single, “Be Without You.” And then there’s the cover of U2’s “One,” which you may have seen her perform with Bono at the Grammy’s. And finally, there’s “MJB Da MVP,” a song I fanwanked about months ago, when I first heard it in a pre-release version that was leaked to a local radio station. This is the song that makes me actually dance around the house looking like an iPod ad. It only got better, over the eight months I waited for it to come out.

The final song is a little number by Tracy Chapman called “Change.” I’m embarrassed to say that I first heard this song on an HBO ad while I was blogging and watching TV, and I thought, ‘that’s Tracy Chapman!’ so I went to iTunes and downloaded it instantly. It’s a good tune, despite my nerdly acquisition.

The tagged? You’re it:
