Music stuff....

... it's been a long time since I've been asked to participate in a meme... and a new acquaintance has asked.... so, here goes...

1. Person who most influenced your musical tastes:

... probably my Grandpa... he was a notorious knower of obscure lyrics... and I'm still looking for the complete version of "I'm a Rattlesnakin' Daddy".. yeah, the one where the next line is. "I'm gonna rattle all over this town"... Grandpa was the man... also I have to give props to my Father-in-Law... he got me started loving jazz in a big way... Hoagy Carmichael, Sidney Bechet, and Fats Waller are both played occasionally around here... all in all, I'm a lyrics guy... I can stomach most kinds of music as long as I can enjoy the lyrics... which is probably one of the reasons that I'm now a fully fledged Deacon in the Church of Tom Waits....

2. Top 5 songs to drive to:

5. Step Right Up - Tom Waits... I can sing along at the top of my lungs and never miss a beat while driving... just ask T1G...
4. Serious Business- John Cougar Mellencamp
3. A Little Less Conversation - Elvis Presley
2. Back in Black - AC/DC
1. Born to be Bad - George Thorogood and the Destroyers

3. # of CD's you own:

... not as many as I'd like... I have around 300 cassettes... but only about 75 CDs...

4. Song/CD you were listening to when you lost your virginity:

... I lost my virginity on a blanket in the woods... sorry... just imagine one of those nature soundtracks with some heavy breathing thrown in...

5. Song(s) played at your wedding:

... when we marched out of the church, the organist played "Semper Fidelis"... as a Marine and a brand new husband, it seemed fitting...

6. Favorite sad song:

... "One for my Baby" by Robbie Williams...

7. Song you'd like played at your funeral:

... I used to imagine that I'd want Skynyrd's "Tuesday's Gone"... but lately I've been thinking about "Will the Circle be Unbroken" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band...

.. anyway, since this is a brand new meme... and I was the only one tagged... I can't just let it die... so, I tag the following unfortunates....

... The Queen of Cheese...
.. dear Tammi...
... and the Maximum Leader himself...

I had a good friend I worked with one time get his head blown off by his step dad. Kid was like 20, maybe. We co-workers were in the chapel, keepin it real, looking at him lying there in a suit he would never wear were he alive, and the first Hammond B3 power notes of 'Blue Collar Man' by Styx came blamming out of the chapels speakers...

Man, that leveled us. I still can't listen to that song.

Step Right Up... funny, but a friend and I were just talkin' about Waits on Thursday, and this song was one that we brought up. I told him about you singing right along with it.

You're right... Waits kinda grows on you.
