MY MUSIC MEME...Thanks, Janna!

I have been tagged with a meme by the lovely Janna and since I am stil new to the whole meme thing, I feel no ill will about it. Heck, it saves me from having to think of something about my glamorous life to blog about. I am to list seven songs/cds that I have listened to recently and elaborate a bit. I am then to tag seven other bloggers with this blessing of a meme. Most of my musical enjoyment recently has been from listening to my personal playlist of songs on imeem. So, without further ado, I give you...THE MUSIC MEME.

1. "We Belong Together" Mariah Carey
This song is one of the few that I really like of hers since about the mid-90's. I don't think she's taking full advantage of her remarkable voice anymore. Listen to her first career CD and then compare to her recent work and you might agree.
2. "Tell Me" Groove Theory
I like this song cause it's a mellow beat that still makes you bop your head. It's a good, simple song.
3. "She's Like the Wind" VibeKingz feat. Maliq
Yes, that song from Dirty Dancing. But this is a new version with a good beat and a new spin. I heard it on my way home from school a few months ago, looked it up, and have been playing it since. If you look it up, it has a good video too.
4. "Crowded" Jeannie Ortega feat. Papoose
I blast this in my car occasionally. It's a fun beat with tough girl lyrics (sorta). Fun to dance to.
5. "Need You Tonight" INXS
I'm old enough to remember when this was first released and it was pretty popular. But when I hear this song, I remember the scene from Coyote Ugly where Violet tricks Kevin into dancing on the bar. 

6. "It's Not Over" Chris Daughtry

I was really pulling for this guy on American Idol, but am kinda glad that he didn't win. His success will now be based on the recognition of his raw talent and not because of a popularity contest that is now tainted by plots to pick the winners based on anything but talent. (Sorry, had to let that out a little.) He's got a great, raw voice like some of the best rockers and not to mention that he's nice to look at.
7. "Popular" Wicked Soundtrack

I had throw in something off-the-wall. I really do listen to this often though. While in London, some of the girls were obsessed with this musical and would dance around the flat singing this song. What was funny was that one of the girls actually had a high voice like Kristin Chenoweth.

So, there it is folks. My musical taste runs pretty rampant through all genres. Yes, even a tiny (really tiny) bit of rap. I invite you to check out my playlists to enjoy the variety.

So, now the part you've been dreading, I mean anticipating. I get to tag others with this fun meme. I think I will choose...
Mama P
Chelle and Chel
Vinnie G
Wow, one more. Who's the lucky duck? It's Lisa. Have fun folks!

I know I shouldn't like INXS, but they really did come up with some great songs....

Thanks for the tag, my problem will be whittling it down to only 7 ;-)
