Music Meme
Ah yes, I wanted to do gordon_r_d's music meme some time ago, but never got around to it. Thanks to theta_g, I've remembered now.

First single bought (by yourself, not bought for you)? Man, that's a difficult one. Probably "Doctor Who"/"The Astronauts" which I got from a sci-fi mail order store when I was young-ish. Or it could have been "Hey Jude" by The Beatles. I was much more into LPs than 45s.

First album bought? Now why couldn't it ask "First CD bought" cuz I remember that! ;-) How about John Denver and the Muppets Christmas Album? Or an album by the Monkees. I bought so many albums when I was younger. The first CD I bought was The Rutles - got it long before we had a CD player (it didn't come out as an LP record).

Last single bought? MP3: "Pressure" by Billy Joel. CD: "Before" by The Pet Shop Boys.

Last album bought? MP3: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. CD: Audio by Blue Man Group. LP: The Pirate Movie (a recent score on eBay - still looking for Grimms third album, Sleeper, however, so I still have one last LP to locate).

First band seen live? Heart (my sister was the fan - I went to two of their concerts with her).

Last band seen live? Stomp (though I nearly fell asleep in places, thanks to having just flown into London that morning).

Best live band? Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Worst live band? The opener for the first Heart concert that Amy and I went to. I don't remember who they were, but they were too loud and the music was unmemorable.

Five favourite genres? Dance, novelty, anarchy, rock/pop, Celtic.

Genre you hate? Not terribly fond of Country & Western.

Last song sung along to? "Jesus Christ, Superstar." (Well, it *was* Easter!)

Best remix? Dunno.

Worst remix? Dunno.

Best cover version? "New York Mining Disaster" by Chumbawamba. (It's a cover of a Bee Gees tune.)

Worst cover version? Dunno.

First music related crush? Julie Andrews, of course! :-)

Current music related crush? I've seen Sylvester McCoy in a musical, does that count? ;-)

Collaboration you'd like to hear? Chumbawamba & the Pet Shop Boys.

Best band from your home country? The Monkees. (Heh!)

Most embarrassing item in your music collection? Indian Rope Trick, a Beatle bootleg album that I got simply for "The Pirate Song" by George Harrison. Thankfully, I've got an MP3 of it that's in far better shape than the version on the album.

Strangest thing in your music collection? Monty Python's Matching Tie and Handkerchief which is a 3-sided album.

Five songs to take the world on to -
"Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin
"The Theatre" by The Pet Shop Boys
"Homophobia" by Chumbawamba
"Cleanin' Out My Closet" by Eminem
"Games Without Frontiers" by Peter Gabriel

And speaking of music, I discovered another group that I'm going to have to give more airtime to. Leftfield seems like my kind of music.

Current Mood: mellow mellow
Current Music: "Song of Life" by Leftfield

The Last Place on Earth which is a miniseries about Captain Scott and Roald Amundsen's race to the South Pole. Sylv played Lt. "Birdie" Bowers, who ended up being Scott's go-to man for a number of things. Poor man was one of the team that died after reaching the South Pole. The fellow who wrote the book that the miniseries was based upon figured Bowers had a crush on Mrs. Scott and possibly even Captain Scott. Sylv does the "crush" look rather well. (That icon is from the scene where Bowers is talking with Mrs. Scott.)

If you ever get the chance to watch The Last Place on Earth, do so. It's a great miniseries. I spent $100 on the VHS set (7 tapes) and don't feel as though I was cheated. (However, the DVD set now sells for $40 or so.)
