The instructions are:
List ten songs that you are currently digging ... it doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they're no good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artists, and the ten songs in your blog. Then tag five other people to see what they're listening to.
In no particular order:
Cartel - Fleets
Amusement Parks On Fire - Venus In Cancer
Bang! Bang! - Candystop
The Hold Steady - Cattle And The Creeping Things
Bob Mould - Gauze Of Friendship
Ted Leo - Six Months In A Leaky Boat
Jerry Garcia Band - Simple Twist Of Fate ( a couple different versions, actually)
Pansy Division - Bunnies
Q And Not U - So Many Animal Calls
The Rosebuds - My Downtown Friends
I'll tag these folks: data jockey, vividblurry, Wonder Boy, Megadork and Mighty. I don't think any of them have done this yet.
Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Ritchie Valens, Dinah Washington and Otis Redding (among others) have received this honor, so a precedent has been set for American stamps honoring American rock, jazz, and blues musicians.
