Write down five songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.

Aimee Mann - Invisible Ink

Joe Satriani - Rubina's Blue Sky Happiness
The Fire Theft - Rubber Band
Gweny's addition, which is like the hardest question ever: Name three artists/bands you adore:
Genesis - I'm being honest here, okay? When I was 12 years old I saw them and they blew me away. Their pre-1980, pre-top 40 stuff is singularly responsible for getting me into music. And while they have a high, lasting cheese-factor, I still dig their music for what it gave to me.
Joe Satriani - Wow, a standard guitarist's answer. But Satriani was a pioneer and did a lot for the popularity of instrumental, guitar-based music and musicians. Plus, the dude's a wicked guitarist.
Pearl Jam - I was big into the Seattle scene...Mother Love Bone, Green River, Temple of the Dog not to mention Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Mudhoney and others. When Pearl Jam released Ten, it was the perfect album. And sure, they never made another one like it but they've been brave enough to abandon the formula and try new things. Excellent band.
Who are you gonna pass this stick to (three persons and why)?
Anne because she's got great and ecclectic taste in music and she's always steering me towards something new and different.
Supine because I'm trying to get a handle on the kind of stuff she digs...and I have the feeling she's got great taste in music.
RockStar Mommy...well, duh, she's a rock star! And? She's got awesome taste!Posted by Chris at January 29, 2005 11:59 AM
