Five for Friday

Cranberries Everybody Been a loooong time since I did one of these. An “Occassional Series” here at Inspired by Daniel at Alien Soil, I fire up Media Player on random and post the first 5 songs here.
Want to listen? Head over to my profile and look for the songs tagged #five4friday.

  1. The Cranberries – Not Sorry from Everyone Else is Doing it, So Why Can’t We?
    Nice song that really highlights Dolores O’Riordan’s voice.
  2. Rush – Show Don’t Tell from Presto
    A neat track with syncopation in the intro that made me think at first it was one of those Rush tracks with alternating time signatures. Listening more carefully, though, I think it’s all in 4.
  3. Casting Crowns – Joyful, Joyful from until the Whole World Hears
    Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee is one of the best hymns of all time. I’m not sure Casting Crowns improves on it by adding a drum beat and their own chorus & bridge. Not bad, but give me a good acapella choir over this any day.
  4. Damn Yankees – Mystified from Damn Yankees
    Once again, Media player gives us a nice contrast. Hymn to a mildly suggestive hard rock love song.
  5. Wilson Phillips – You’re in Love from Wilson Phillips
    And now for something completely different. I guess this qualifies as a guilty pleasure, as I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that I own this. I’d love to say it was my wife’s, but no such luck. I guess I’m a sucker for good female harmonies. Not my favorite song for sure, but light, fluffy and pretty. .

Your turn, fire up your MP3 player, put it on random and give me yours in the comments.
