...songs. Well, TBH there are lots of things I'm seeking *grin* but ATM it's songs. Songs for the new toy to be precise! To date, I have the following songs on my 'running' playlist:

* Don't Lose My Number (Phil Collins)

* From Yesterday (30 Seconds To Mars)

* Jai Ho (The Pussycat Dolls)

* Kings and Queens (30 Seconds To Mars)

* Loser Like Me (Glee)

* Pour Some Sugar On Me (Def Leppard)

* Whataya Want From Me (Adam Lambert)

Yes, I know. Completely eclectic, although I'm still not quite sure whether the last song - Whataya Want From Me - works on not. And yes they are all what I classify as 'sing' songs.

So, what am I missing? What song gets your heart pounding and your feet tapping and is the perfect song to add to my playlist?


  1. Dance music and Spanish House is my preferred music... but lately I've got Evanescence playing pretty hard. I love her voice.

    Rhianna's S&M is also getting lots of play :) Love it.

  2. Don't tell anyone, but I have this completely guilty love for What the Hell by Avril Lavigne. The shame! ;)

  3. Mariana - there are some great Evanescence songs out there! I don't think I've heard Rhianna's S&M...will have to investigate :)

    Chris - well, yes, I guess it's a challenge :) Thank you! I'm embarrassed to say that I don't recognize any of those bands, but I will follow all your lovely links and discover them :) Out of interest, how do you link?

    heidenkind - I won't say a word *grin*

  4. Look at the HTML Link Syntax heading here.

    I have rather offbeat musical tastes, so it's not surprising you haven't heard of any of those. :)

  5. I feel as I've gotten old(er) that I fall farther and farther behind with music, but I do have some faves.

    I have a few playlists, depending on my mood: Feeling Happy, Felling Mellow, and Feeling Rowdy. I think what you're asking for is songs from the Feeling Rowdy playlist?

    Some of my favorites on it:

    Conquest by The White Stripes
    Respect by Aretha Franklin
    Suffragette City by David Bowie
    Tropicalia by Beck
    Islandman by The Waterboys
    One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces by Ben Folds Five
    Breakdown by Tom Petty

    It's pretty all over the place genre-wise. :-)

  6. Chris - thank you! If I'm honest, I think we don't quite mesh when it comes to music, but I think we mesh rather well when it comes to books *grin*

    Renee - I love your playlist names! And yes, Feeling Rowdy sounds about right, so thank you very much for listing your favourites :) Got to love some Aretha! I must confess I haven't heard of Ben Folds Five, but...as I'm beginning to discover there is so much music I haven't heard of! I can't believe I didn't know about 30 Seconds to Mars until 2 weeks ago! Have discovered another 2 great songs by them - Hurricane and Closer to the Edge. Have their latest album now and am loving it :)

  7. songs on my current playlist are:

    *This Boy's Fire - Santana ft Jennifer Lopez
    *Unpretty - TLC
    *When Love Takes Over - David Guetta ft Kelly Rowland
    *3 Words - Cheryl Cole and Will.i.am
    *On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft Pitbull
    *Need You Now - Lady Antebellum
    *Janie's Got a Gun - Aerosmith
    *I Need to Know - Marc Anthony
    *I Belong to Me - Jessica Simpson
    *Fallen - Lauren Wood
    *Sweet Child o' Mine - Guns N' Roses
    *Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
    *Blame It - Jamie Foxx

  8. LOL about the music! Ah, well. :)

  9. ShellBell - thank you! Great list! And I'd forgotten about Janie's Got A Gun. Definitely need to include that!

    Chris - LOL!
