A Meme Challenge...

Yes, I was challenged by the Mudge and I must deliver.

Before I do, a shout out to regular contributor Dave as he recently found out he and his wife will be having a child. Congratulations my friend and my apologies to the dog.

Onto this challenge which is simple: List the 10 songs I'm currently digging regardless of time period of genre. Easy enough.

"I Heard It Through the Grapevine" (Creedence version): The Marvin Gaye version is the most superior of the bunch, but at 15 minutes, I've always had a special spot in my heart for Fogerty's adaptation and I've been listening to it (and a lot of CCR) lately.

"Award Tour" (A Tribe Called Quest): More than any other CD, my "Midnight Marauders" CD has gotten the most consistent play since I bought it back in 1992.

"Get By" (Talib Kweli): The best rap solo artist in the world....Not really, but he's pretty damn good.

"Refuge" (John Legend): Everyday I get someone new into liking John Legend.

"Nobody" (Robert Randolph & The Family Band): Any Robert Randolph song is worth its weight. Next week it'll be "Going in the Right Direction" or something.

"Eleanor Rigby" (The Beatles): My thoughts on The Beatles are simple: John Lennon was the band. The more interested he was in what he was doing, the better the band was. This was off of the Revolver album.

Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd): I hadn't heard too much PF but their performance at Live 8 really has me listening to them almost daily.

"This Way" (Dilated Peoples and Kanye West): Long before Kanye West became the monster he is today, he was collaborating with great non-mainstream hip-hop acts like Dilated

"Hold You Down" (The Alchemist): This is like my daily theme music. It's just got a nice vibe about it.

I'll have to tag five people at another time. I'd tag Stephanie, but she'd throw out 10 industrial Euro songs I've never heard of ;)
