Gakked from [profile] linzeems:

Step 1: Put your iTunes or equivalent on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 50 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Bold/Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING.

I love music; I couldn't live without it.  It communicates in ways little else can.  When someone tells me they're indifferent about music--and yes, that has happened--I am immediately distrustful. 

lerdo: (B/B Huh? Animated)
Why else would I be listening to Britney Spears' Piece of Me?   *cries*

Somebody save me, please.

ETA:  Thank you for the intervention.  Who knows what would have happened if I listened to it BACKWARDS!?

Edited again because I iz a whore for music--even if it can only loosely be termed "music".  And no one ever accused me of having good taste. 

So I'll be honest:  I like Piece of Me.  And Toxic. 

*sigh*  There goes my street cred.  Ok, so I didn't have any to begin with. *g*

[profile] sillysun22 asked me to post songs that I listen to while writing and/or that remind me of Booth and Brennan.  I'm going to start to fill her request by posting songs that remind me specifically of Booth.  For some songs, I've added brief explanations.  I may add more, and I'll almost certainly edit this post down the line and add additional songs as they occur to me.  I've posted Mediafire and Youtube links.  Any problems, let me know. :)

Yesterday, I posted that I'd just discovered Jose Gonzalez' music and was wondering if anyone could rec other musicians I might like.  Well, [personal profile] witchofthedogs recommended Kate Rusby.  I looked her up on Youtube, and the first song of hers that I listened to is Who Will Sing Me Lullabies?. It's a girl-and-her-guitar kind of song.  It's achingly beautiful, but not overwrought.  This song made me sob.  And that's not an exaggeration. 

When it comes to describing music, words fail me.  Just, go listen.  If this song doesn't gut you, you're a stronger person than I.  I was telling Witchy that this song makes me want to write something that's as plaintive and achingly beautiful, but I don't think I can do it.

What are you still doing here?  Go listen (and read the lyrics)!
