The Parkington Sisters are so obscure they don't even have a Wikipedia page (!). This video is amazing on about a hundred levels. One of which is that Lydia Parkington (I think that's Lydia) is so gorgeous she can't possibly be real.



They're playing in Orleans in August. I may just have to go see them.

LJ flist-cut is done. I'll probably be doing more a little later, when I see how this one goes. I've whetted it down to less than 200, which is a lot better than it was. I still have some people on who have not posted in literally years, but I don't have the heart to delist them, mostly because I knew them in RL or had a close online relationship at one point ([profile] lady_morsmordre, if you're out there, I'm especially talking about you).

Again, if anyone wants me to add you back, post here and I will. My next thing is a drastic cut of comms, which, while not as heart-wrenching as the flist cut, still will be difficult. I've already done a few, but I need to do more. The glut of comms I have is worse than the unwieldy size of my flist.

Again, I am not cutting on DW.


Ahem. Now for more fun stuff. Here, have some Bob Marley cuteness:

SO MANY HEARTS.

Day 9: A song that reminds you of an ex.




Totally angst-free memory: my ex-husband used to sing this song all the time. Not the whole song, mind you; he'd randomly burst into a room in Krameristic fashion and blurt out either "it's just a game that you play" or "buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight." I found it hilarious, but I guess you had to be there.

The song itself is a lovely one. Ah, the days of the singer-songwriter. If only they'd happen again.

Day 8: One band/singer whose popularity you will never understand.

Anne Murray. She has a pleasant enough voice, but no real personality and her songs are boring. Do not get.

This one's really pretty, though. Even if the Loggins and Messina version is light-years better.

Two entries today, because I missed yesterday on account of RL.


Day 5: Your favourite female singer.

This one was hard. "But I have so many favourite female singers," said I. "There's Sinéad, there's Melissa, there's k.d., how could I choose just one?" But I'm trying to be a good meme-taker and not be all "this meme ain't the boss o' me". I could have gone with the nostalgic angle, or the voice angle, or the lyric angle, but I figured those were too limiting. So I picked the singer I could listen to no matter what mood I'm in, of whose body of work I know and love the most (and who really fits well into all those other categories in any case).

So, anyway, I picked Cheryl, because in the end, how could I not? This is the song that introduced me to her, and it was love at first listen:




Day 6: Your favourite band. I thought this would be hard, but it ended up a complete no-brainer:



I continue to insist that the Beatles were not only the first emo band but the prototype for every emo band to follow. I should really do a poll, because plenty of people don't agree with me.

Day 4: Your favourite male singer.

I've already posted something by my favourite male singer; for the sake of variety I will post something by (one of) my favourite male singer(s) who is not Elton John:




I love my fake!fiancé (and this song) so very much. :)

Day 3: A song that makes you dance:



I also love the video. I double-dare anyone to try NOT to dance to this.

I'm finally doing one of those 30-day memes that keep going around. This one's the music meme.


Day 1: Your favourite song:

Since my favourite song is actually an entire album (I even wrote a review for it a while back), I'll pick something from that:




Here are the rest of the songs.

Oh, and if you buy this album? See if you can get the version without the added three songs at the end. They're great songs, but this is a CONCEPT ALBUM, and they're just not part of the concept.

I take no responsibility for the content of this video. But yay, Ellen Page!

Yes.

Oh, yes.





If there is anyone in the vicinity of the ENTIRE WORLD who wants to perform this, I will come to you. I want to sing this so badly it isn't even funny. I sing alto. Call me.

I seriously cannot stop listening to this song.


Also? If you haven't yet seen The Social Network, you need to do that. Sometime in the vicinity of this very instant. fasdlsdlf;sadj
