I've been tagged!

Well this is a fast fun one for me. I have been tagged by my friend NanaTrish...bless your little heart....to share five songs that I am embarrassed to admit to the WWW that I like.

The rules:1. Post the link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.2. Share 5 songs you are embarrassed to admit to others that you like and tell why.3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post.

So here is the interesting thing....I am not a person with great musical taste. My interest level is not high in the area of music. I don't often listen to popular music, and what I do like aside from Christian worship music is definitely very old school. (so my kids tell me) What I do get a kick out of are musicals.

For a month now I have been having a Thursday movie night with some girlie's. And we started watching Wives and Daughters and then progressed to Jane Austin movies...movies I will watch over and over...so okay this is not about movies, that is another post. I am getting to my point. Last week I found out that these girlie's had never seen Phantom of the Opera. So I was delighted to share this epic movie with them, and the music. But here is what I am embarrassed about, when I watch this movie...the music "gets in my mind". It really drives me crazy for awhile. I find myself singing songs from this opera for weeks after viewing it. ( and according to Knitting Mania, my lovely sis I can't sing a note on tune, and she is entirely right!) There are many more musicals and opera's that I love....just don't have room for all that :0) anyone for Julie Andrews....These are a few of my favorite things!

This was great! I love musicals, too, and I know how those songs get stuck. There's a name for that, which escapes me at the moment.

Sara said...

Oh yeah, that is a great movie, and the music is what makes it....the plot is ridiculous! My dh LOVES that movie just for the music.

And I LOVE Sarah Brightman, the original Christine and one-time wife of Andrew Lloyd Weber who wrote the part just for her. I've got most of her CD's beginning with the Time to Say Goodbye one. Even got to see her in concert for her Harem tour. I guess that's pretty embarrassing....so I'll just make my admission here and not play the meme. ;-D

I don't think there are any songs or music that I like that I am embarrased to share. I like what I like from a large repetoire.I guess the very first record I bought might be in that category to some but I was proud to have been able to buy it. I was 16 I guess. It is Tommy Steele 'Singing the Blues'. Wonder how many bloggers there are that remember that one. As I am about to go on holiday in a little over 12 hours I will pass on this one anyhow, but thanks for thinking of me.

The music really does get into the mind. I can't sing either but that doesn't stop me-hehe.

Have a great weekend

Knitting Mania said...

Well now that I can finally get into your blog this morning, that was weird last night....anyway...I would love to play this meme. I'll be thinking on this for a couple of days before I post.

I LOVE all of these songs and NOT embarrassed at about them at all...looking forward to October
11th!!! :)

I love Phantom of the Opera! I have a feeling we have lots in common, especially our love of the Lord!

Strider said...

Wow....you worked hard on your post! We had a great time with everyone last night night. Thanks for your hospitality.

Lavinia said...

But I love all these songs...shamelessly.....I have the DVD and it really does take you away, to watch it....

Yummy Gerard Butler!
