Whatever did I do without my Mp3 player......
A week ago I was taking a Loooong bus ride out to White Rock to visit the Doctor and it was PACKED. I stood (Yes I stood, it was that busy) and listened to two drug addicts compare Crystal Meth stories, and one really, really, large lady hork up phlegm like she had the disease 'Captain Tripps' from the Stephen King novel The Stand. Well I was dreading the 50 minute bus ride listening to all this 'ambiance' when I remembered I had my trusty Mp3 player with me. I slipped it on and went into the music goodness of Billy Bragg, The Beatles, and Chris Isaak all of whom helped drown out the horrible sounds of The Greater Vancouver Transit system.
So this all leads me to the point of this blog entry. What is Gregg listening to on his Mp3 player? Many of you have emailed and asked me what I've been listening to lately* so here goes .....
Out of the 1300 plus tunes I have currently on my Creative Zen Micro here's what tops my chart!
5. Gnarls Barkley - 'Crazy'
This song grows on you. At first I didn't like it, but now I LOVE it, go figure!
4. Embrace - 'The World at Your Feet'
One of the 16 official songs for England at the World Cup. Unlike the other 15 this one is really good!
3. The Kooks - 'Naive'
Good ol' pop song with a great hook. Downloa.... eerrrrrrr I mean 'Buy' this one today!
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers - 'Dani California'
This band just gets better and better with age.
And Number one on my personal top 5...........
1. Keane - 'Is it Any Wonder?'
Keane is simply my favourite band going right now that could be considered "hip" by the kids of today. They have such a nice sound that I think many reading this blog would like them almost as much as I do. The bands has a new album coming out this week and I'm really looking forward to it! That is big praise indeed as I don't even remember the last time I looked forward to a new albums release.
Honourable mention goes to the entire radio catalog of "The Mighty Boosh" and Snow Patrol - "You're all that I have".
What are you listening to? Let us know in the comments section!
*Okay, Okay, NO ONE has emailed and asked me this....
