A Pinch of this, A Dash of That

I snagged this from Cin, but she is private.  She snagged from here... dollarShort/VoxTrott...
By the way... AoHell is not sending all alerts today... so double check the places you frequent!
Name your top 10 most played bands on your iPod or stereo or whatever. You know, lately...like this past week.

1. Bonjovi
2. Def Leppard
3. Frank Sinatra
4. Randy Travis
5. 80's Mix CD
6. Billy Joel
7. Nickelback
8. Led Zeppelin
9. Johnny Cash
10. Mozart (various selections)

What was the first song you ever heard by 6 (Billy Joel)?

The first one?  I have no idea.  Probably 'Piano Man', but that is just the first song I associate with him.  I did buy my first album of his in 8th grade - 'Glass Houses'.

What is your favorite album of 2 (Def Leppard)?

I would have to say 'Hysteria', followed closely by 'Pyromania'.  And, the videos.... Oh Joe Elliott and those torn up jeans singing 'Pour Some Sugar on Me'.... be still my beating heart!!!

What is your favorite lyric that 5 (80's Mix CD) have sung?

I will choose my favorite out of the songs on this CD...  And, it would be from B-52's 'Love Shack'.  "You see a faded sign at the side of the road it says 15 miles to the Loooooove Shack!"  Tin roof, rusted, BABY!!!  Kate Pierson has the voice and range of an angel.

How many times have you seen 4 (Randy Travis) live?

Never.  I love the album 'Always & Forever'.  Love that baritone voice... he could read or sing the phone book and I would be entranced.

What is your favorite song by 7 (Nickelback)?

I like the song 'Photograph' for what it's lyrics do for me... which is to bring me back in my memories to the 80's when I was a teen.  My favorite of theirs overall musically is 'How You Remind Me', the lyrics are good too, but it isn't a happy song.  Rocking bass line though.

What is a good memory you have involving the music of 10 (Mozart)?

You wouldn't think I had one but, I do!!  During my pregnancy with Hammer we used to put a Sony Walkman (you remember cassettes, right?), on my ever expanding tummy with 'Ein Klein Nachtmuzik' blaring...  And, he is a genius - nature or nurture?

Is there a song of 3 (Frank Sinatra) that makes you sad?

Wow... no, I don't think there is one!

What is your favorite lyric that 6 (Billy Joel) has sung?

I have so many but the one that comes to mind is from 'It's Still Rock n Roll To Me', that all my friends in my freshman year of high school loved to sing very pointedly to me

"Should I try to be a straight A student?  If you are then you think too much!"

How did you get into 3 (Frank Sinatra)?

I don't really remember!  Frank was just always around!  I began to appreciate him more as a teen.  He had an amazing tone to his voice... not often found.

What was the first song you heard by 1 (BonJovi)?

It was their first single release 'Runaway'.  Not one of their best, but it was the beginning.

What is your favorite song by 4 (Randy Travis)?

It would have to be 'Forever and Ever, Amen', about growing old with the love of your life and loving that person more and more and more with each passing decade.

How many times have you seen 9 (Johnny Cash) live?

Never in concert however, I did meet Johnny Cash when I was about 4 or 5!  I was at the circus in Madison Square Garden with my parents, and Johnny and kids were across the aisle from us.  All in black.  He signed an autograph for me on my circus book.  :-D

What is a good memory you have involving 2 (Def Leppard)?

I would have to say watching the video of 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' on many nights on MTV with Kathy drooling over how hot we thought that Joe Elliott was in those jeans! 

Is there a song of 8 (Led Zeppelin) that makes you sad?

'What is and What Should Never Be', represented a friendship with benefits that went through many twists and turns and ultimately is no longer.  We would always be ready to jump deeper into a 'real' relationship at the wrong time for the other.  I always thought the friendship would last though.  He bugged out when I got engaged to Hubby. 

What is your favorite album of 5 (80's Mix CD, doesn't work so, I will do Billy Joel #6 instead)?

The Stranger

What is your favorite lyric that 3 (Frank Sinatra) has sung?

Hmmm... Favorite Frank lyric... I guess... 'I get no kick from champagne, mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all, so tell my should it be true, that I get a kick out of you!'

What is your favorite song of 1 (BonJovi)?

I can't choose between 'I'll Be There for You' and 'Always', yes, I am a sucker for Jon and a ballad.  What can I say... I am a Jersey Girl!!! lol

What is your favorite song of 10 (Mozart)?

I have to stick with 'Ein Klein Nachtmuzik'.  That was why we chose it for Hammer... I loved it!

How many times have you seen 8 (Led Zeppelin) live?

Never. Although, my cousin, Leslie saw Plant and Page many times a solo artists, and I have a picture of her getting a hug and kiss from Robert Plant.

What is your favorite album of 1 (BonJovi)?

Easy.  'New Jersey', of course!

What is a great memory you have considering 9 (Johnny Cash)?

See answer above about meeting him!  I also have great memories of my dad playing Johnny Cash on 8 track in the car a lot!!!!

What was the first song you heard by 8 (Led Zeppelin)?

I am sure it was 'Stairway to Heaven' and it was my Uncle Jimmy's albums that got me interested.

What is your favorite cover by 2 (Def Leppard)?

I don't think they ever did a cover song.  Or had one done of their songs yet!  LOL

This was fun...  A little too vanilla and varied for some J-Landers, I imagine!  But, that is me!

be well,

Nice mix of music!  I saw Bon Jovi live in concert in Mountain View, California--they rocked--  I didn't come to see them, but the band that opened for them-Extreme.  Julie :)

Robert Plant went to the boys school in my home town of Stourbridge and I went to the Girls High School, he was older than me. I used to see him in town with his long golden curly hair, (swoon) he was so good looking then.

Def Leopard did a remake of the song Rock on. One is a metal version and one is very stripped down. They both soung good! -Dawn-

Def Leppard covered the Sweet song "Action" (on the Retro Active album). If you want to vomit: "Bringin' on the Heartbreak" was covered by Mariah Carey. There is also a tribute album where you can hear lots of bands cover Def Leppard. It's called "Tributized--A Tribute to Def Leppard."

I've seen Johnny Cash...at a little place in New London CT. He was incredible. Never did get to see Sinatra but love him, too. --Cin
