Tagged By Tony (musical version)

The Rules:

List five songs that you are currently digging - it doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words...or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions and the five songs (with artist) in your blog. Then tag five people to see what they're listening to.

"Peter Gunn" – Max Sedgley remixSarah Vaughan (from The Verve Remix Album # 3. This is an amazing mix of The Peter Gunn Theme as done by the sassy Ms. Vaughan fed through the Sedgley mixer – you just gotta’ hear it to appreciate it).

Los Angeles” – X (from the newly released X – Live in Los Angeles. This proves that sometimes, old punk bands age better than a fine wine! This song has always been a fave of mine, but this latest version, for some reason, just kicks it! Still, though an angry song about a hateful woman and the city that hates her back.)

When The President Talks to God” – Bright Eyes (this is the version that he sang on Jay Leno’s show a few months back. I downloaded it from the internet and listen to it at least once a week).

The Wages of Love” – Tom Waits and Crystal Gale (from the soundtrack to the film, “One from the Heart", this great little jazzy number has it all – brilliant lyrics, full orchestration and two voices that could not be anymore different – Waits sounds like sandpaper and Gayle like sweet honey – recently released and well worth a listen.)

Won’t Get Fooled Again” – The Who (now and forever – great rock and roll!)

Anyone, feel free to take the tag!
