30 Day Music Meme: Days 23 & 24

There was no entry for

Day 23: A song that makes you angry

because there are no songs that make me angry. Songs can make me happy or sad, or thoughtful; they can get on my nerves, but make me lose my rag? I don't think so.

So we'll carry on with

Day 24: A cover song

There are many, many great covers by many great artists, and it's difficult to choose which one to highlight. I have in the end decided to go with this version of Look At Miss Ohio (Ragtop Down), originally by Gillian Welch, as performed by Common Rotation and David Berkeley and captured on video by anonypooh. We were staying in New York at the time and had driven down to see them for an hour or two, then drove back up again the same night. While it's been more than two years since I last saw them, anonypooh's over in the States right now and, if all's gone according to plan, will have seen Common Rotation at last night's gig, and I do so hope she'll bring me back a recording of it. Words cannot express how much I've missed them...or David, for that matter.




Day 25- An acoustic song you love
Day 26- A song by your favorite band
Day 27- A song you make fun of
Day 28- A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend (if you don’t have one, make one up :])
Day 29- A song currently stuck in your head
Day 30- A song that you haven’t listened to in awhile
