Looks like I just can't stop memeing!

Music meme, by way of bogwitch: comment and I'll give you a letter; tell me five favourite songs that start with it.

I didn't have to think long and hard about which song to start off with: River of Sorrow sprang to mind almost immediately. I love Antony Heggarty's lyricism, voice, and delivery; and this song's a very good example of his talent.

1) Antony and the Johnsons - River of Sorrow

For song choice No. 2, I particularly like the chaos and cacophony into which this song seemingly descends towards the end. And look, Conor Oberst even finishes on a classic guitar smashup!

2) Bright Eyes - Road to Joy

The original version of my third offering is 8 minutes long and doesn't feature Sinéad O'Connor, but I couldn't find a good quality video for it so here's the excised version:

3) Afro Celt Sound System ft. Sinéad O'Connor - Release

My fourth choice is included in this list mainly because I like the simplicity of the video, while the song itself I think may be throwaway, yet still catchy.

4) Ladytron - Runaway

I was going to try and do this without taking recourse to any of my all-time favourite artists' back catalogues, but I've found I got rather stuck on the letter R quite quickly. So, my last favourite song starting with R is

5) David Sylvian - Ride

Sorry it took me a while to get the time to listen.

I'd heard of Afro Celt Sound System, but I hadn't heard them before. They really do what they tell you on the tin, don't they?

Still listening to Ladytron then?

They certainly do!

Off and on. It's not like they're my go to music choice for any particular mood, but I do like them. And I've still got the cd you sent me!
