Farscape - John&Aeryn - happiness

30-Day Music Meme - Days 2 and 3.

I didn't get to do this last night, so here's the next two days' worth of choices. The original list is here.

Day 02 - Your Least Favourite Song

I told myself when doing this meme that I would stick only to music I actually own, and I think with a few exceptions I have managed that. In which case...

Antony and the Johnsons - "Free at Last"

Now, don't get me wrong. I really, really like "I Am A Bird Now", the album this comes from. And for the most part the songs on that album are sheer brilliance. This particular song just doesn't do anything for me. I'm sure it has some great deeper meaning that I'm simply not understanding, but... I don't get it. It's the only song I regularly skip, both on the CD and on my MP3-player when I get to it.

Day 03 - A Song That Makes You Happy

I had a couple of choices for this, but I've moved one of them elsewhere, so:-

The Feeling - "We Can Dance"

I suggest you ignore the video and just listen to the song in the background. It's the only album version I can find - all the others are live mobile phone type uploads with people singing out of tune over the top. Suck.

This is a hidden track on the second album, "Join With Us", and it comes after the last listed track, "Greatest Show on Earth", which is quite slow and maudlin. When those synths kick in at the start, it never fails to make me smile. It sort of reminds me of Tubular Bells at the beginning, but the entire song is bouncy and chirpy. I think it makes less sense out of context of the preceding song, as you don't get the same sense of the change in mood, but nevertheless, I defy anyone not to start humming along. :D

That be it for now. I'll try and do the others on time. :)
