Lo-fi librarian tagged me as part of Information Overlords meme, and has therefore forced me to reveal my terrible taste in music. I admit it, I’m a pop princess, and have a disturbing love of 1990s pop at that. Fiendish lo-fi, fiendish! If I’m ostracised from society for this list, I shall blame you!!
So, the challenge was to name my top 5 favourite bands beginning with the letter ‘S’, so here goes…
- Salt N Pepa – Lets Talk About Sex
This one is because my Mum used to delight in singing along to this any time she had me and any of my friends trapped anywhere, like in the car. I could claim that she was trying to encourage healthy discussions in that area, but realistically, she just enjoyed embarrassing lots of pre-teen girls.
- Semisonic – Closing Time
I worked for a summer in America in a theme park, first as a landscape gardener, then as a ride operator when the bulk of the staff went back to school after the summer break. This song was the last one played every night, and was a sign for us it was time to shut up shop, and head off home. Happy days!
- Sarah McLachlan – Ice Cream
So many of her songs that I love, but this one is just…fun! Also another from my American summer.
- Scissor Sisters – Comfortably Numb
Is best heard at full volume in a club, so you can sing along badly and nobody will hear 😀
- Sixpence None the Richer – Kiss Me
Makes me want to find a field to run through, trees to climb with a treehouse in them, and a swing to play on…
I would tag 5 other bloggers, but my brain is in meltdown, so I’ll just say that if anyone wants to do this, consider yourself tagged! 😀
