I’ve been tagged, so here are my worst music moments, courtesy of iTunes:
1. Angels and Airwaves, “The Adventure”
I have a soft spot for power-pop and layered pieces (a la wall-of-sound and prog rock). I’ve always found myself liking Tom DeLonge’s stuff with Blink-182 in spite of the fact he writes some truly bad lyrics This one’s on my workout mix when I go to the gym.
2. Marc Cohn, “Walking in Memphis”
Best line from this song: “She said,’Tell me, are you are Christian, child?’/And I said, ‘Ma’am I am tonight.'”
3. Mike and the Mechanics, “All I Need is a Miracle”
I also have a soft spot for synth-heavy 80s dreck, and the best of New Wave. This falls somewhere in between.
4. David Bowie, “Underground”
5. Tears for Fears, “The Working Hour”
I genuinely like this song, but never heard it until I was in my early 20s. I had heard “Shout,” “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” and “Head Over Heels” from Songs From the Big Chair , but nothing else. Then I went over to someone’s house and listened to it on their record player. I now also own the album on vinyl (80s all the way!).
I tag Keith at The Projector is Ripping Your History since he actually knows a thing or two about music.
