Friday Five

1. Name one song you hate to admit you like.
I have a lot of guilty pleasures when it comes to music, but Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran, Ballroom Blitz by Sweet and the entire High Voltage album by AC/DC all rank up there.

2. Name two songs that always make you cry.
Very Good Year by Frank Sinatra. Cat's in the Cradle by Cat Stevens always does as well, even though I absolutely loathe the song and think it's self-indulgent crap. A runner-up is Haunted by the Ghost of Patty by Barcelona, I always get a little sniffly when it plays.

3. Name three songs that turn you on.
Melt with You by Modern English, Serenade by Roxy Music, and Hey, Hey by Led Zeppelin. That eclectic enough for you? Although listening to music in a companionable way with a special someone is more of a guaranteed turn-on than any particular song.

4. Name four songs that always make you feel good.
Avalon by Roxy Music (the entire Avalon album really), Running Down a Dream by Tom Petty, Hot by the Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Golden Years by David Bowie.

5. Name five songs you couldn't ever do without.
Hmm, this is a difficult one. My passions in music change on a steady basis. But if I have to pick five, probably Piece of My Heart by Janis Joplin, Possession by Sarah McLachlan (I don't care how overplayed it is), Mother of Pearl by Roxy Music, Small Blue Thing by Suzanne Vega and possibly Black and White by the Bellevue Cadillac.
