14. Mai. 2008, 22:46 von JoshoewaaHehe. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I like them too much. I'll be putting some proper journals up again soon! But for now, heres this... actually, does anyone even read my journals LOL? Oh well...
01. Why did you decide to take this quiz?

Pink Floyd may be my favorite band now, but I will never forget how much I loved the Beatles when I was smaller, and even though I have expanded my tastes, I still love listening to them. Who's ready for another obsessive list?
Instrumental, and one of Ringo Starr's few songs. Only recently, I thought it wouldn't be out of place in a video game, as a walking theme.
I first heard this when I was six. I thought Ringo was somehow related to me and/or knew me because he had the most awesome birthday in the world, aka. mine (July 7)
20. I Want to Hold Your Hand
One of my first Beatles songs. Someone danced to it in a school talent show, leading me to want to dance the next year to...
19. I Saw Her Standing There
I used to dance to this when I was five and six. It was mainly spinning though. But: I thought that if I wore heels, I'd look seventeen for the dance. That thought was bolstered by the fact that when I smeared play makeup on my face and put Mom's heels on…
29. Mär. 2008, 19:07 von ascrodinTake ten bands/artists that should play at your show and determine their set lists:

11. Mär. 2008, 0:41 von lirsveacbaI have played them on loop for over a month now, and for a long while, it simply wasn't enough. I wikipedia'd every one of their songs, finished the Davies biography of them in less than a week, and covered my walls with pictures of them.
I have now returned to the normal world (where I only play them every OTHER song), but I love them no less.
What is it about them that's so compelling? They weren't especially bright; they all dropped out of school--after all, Ringo can hardly spell... Their musical talents aren't virtuosic, their vocal range isn't much impressive, and they really didn't do much in the way of high-class social reform.
I'm not putting them down. I love their music. I adore it. I choreograph my life to it. And yet I think the reason for why they first got so big was simply because ... Well, we'll get to that later.
So they began at Liverpool as one of those dime-a-dozen Elvis-wannabe skiffle bands, starting with John who fell in love with Paul and later George…
11. Jul. 2007, 3:32 von ally525DIRECTIONS:Put your iTunes or whatever music application you use on random. Write down the first 10 songs that play here. Then, write a random fact about that song (Where you first heard it, how you started listening to it, any emotions it evokes.. ANYTHING!) And pass it on!
1. Pink Floyd - Careful With That Axe, Eugene
this song brings me back to when i was just beginning to delve deeper into pink floyd's body of work, roughly november 2004-february 2005. this song is featured on pink floyd: live at pompeii, which i borrowed from my friend nadia and subsequently bought because i loved it so much...and in remembering live in pompeii, i'm reminded of my obsession with David Gilmour and his secksiness in the film ;D
2. The Exies - My Goddess
this song reminds me of the time just before and overlapping with the last song - the fall of 2004, my junior year of high school. not the best time of my life, but not the worst either. this was track 6 or 7 on the mix cd i burned in early october. …

9. Feb. 2006, 0:25 von horatioalderaanI originally posted this on my blog
but this seems like a more appropriate place to post it.
Apparently ‘A Day In The Life’ from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has been named the best British song of all time.
My immediate thought on reading this was “that song would definitely be in my top five Beatles songs of all time, but probably wouldn’t be number one.” So here are my top five Beatles songs:
1. Across the Universe
2. Eleanor Rigby
3. I Am the Walrus
4. A Day in the Life
5. Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
‘Piggies’ from the white album would also rate an honourable mention. I'd love to hear other people’s personal top five Beatles songs.
