Songs of Summer

#1 Read my mind (from Sam’s Town by the Killers)
I know it's old, but the whole album reminds me of last summers performance at Glastonbury. No, I was not there. I really could not 'do' a festival, but I watched it on the tele and thought they were magnificent.
#2 New Born (from Origins of Sympathy by Muse)
Please watch the brilliant Oxfam video on this link. Muse can do no wrong and I listen to them all the time without ever tiring of them.
#3 Insomnia ( Faithless)
They say that a form of torture is to play loud rock music over and over again. If they played me this I would be a very happy bunny. I will never tire of it, and so it is a permanent fixture on my MP3 player.
#4 Ash Tray Girl (from Once More with Feeling by Placebo)
The best band I have never seen, well them and The Pixies.
#5 Waltzing Along ( from Best of James)
I saw them when they first started out and I saw them last year and they were better than ever. I thinkdisneyrollergirl is right the time is ripe for a 90's revival and not just fashion.
#6 Low ( from step up 2 by Flo Rida, Travis Barker mix)
Both this and the next one are not on my MP3 player but have wormed there way into my brain because they are songs Daisy and Kitty have both put dances to. #6 I saw Daisy dance to in a show with a group of other girls. She is not a natural dancer but she had opted to do aerobics instead of PE. She had a very young teacher who managed to teach the group a brilliant routine, they were so good they were asked to participate in the dance show. So I endured the song over and over again, and now when I hear it, all I can think of is how wonderful Daisy looked when she was dancing.
#7 T-Pain (from step up 2 by Church, presidents mix)
This is a song Kitty is putting a routine to with her friend so she can enter a talent show at school. So once again another song worms its way in. funnily enough both songs were also popular at the Turkish show I went to on Sunday. Trust me these songs are everywhere, there is no escape.

OK over to a couple of music fans

Thanks Alison,

I'm working on my songs right now. If I could figure out how to do the fancy click on the title and the music will play thing, it would be a lot easier.

I know that I am the only person in the world except my mum and a baby that can't do this. I refuse to tell IT God that I can't as he would burst his kite laughing at me !

Trust me the idea of embedding has stayed just that. An idea!
