Friday Five

1. What is your favorite song right now? Why? Johnny and June by Heidi Newfield. I think it is catchy and because she is singing about the love of June and Johnny Cash. In the song she says, "When you're gone, I wanna go too, Like Johnny and June" and that line, along with how she works in the titles of their hits makes this song for me. They loved they way we should all love.

For lyrics and video come over here.

2. What genre of music makes you the happiest? I guess it would the be music of the late 70's with Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Pink Floyd, Wings, Hall and Oates, Bob Seager, The Eagles, Springsteen. Not my all time favorite genre but it makes me happiest.

3. What would you name your band and what kind of music would you play? Lovin' Life. I think I would play kids songs these days. My theme has changed over the years. Once upon a time it would have been alternative music with a darker edge.

4. What is your favorite lyric of all time? Why? This is hard. I love so many lyrics for different reasons. There is a song by Pearl Jam (one of my favorite bands) called Black. I played this song over and over again during a difficult time in my life. Even now, I still listen for this lyric when I hear it on the radio. I want everything to stop so that I can HEAR it. The lyric I am talking about goes like this, I know some day you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a sun, in somebody Else's sky. Why, why, why can't it be me. Very basic but Eddie's voice is full of torment and hurt on the ME part and it was exactly how I felt when I needed that song.

5. What band/artist could you never live without? Why? That would be Stevie Nicks. I don't know that there is another female who writes like her.
