Trendy, we bloggers be. Here's a cool one going around (at least at Cheezy's, under Joe's bridge & at Paula's Ultra Palace of Bloggy Delights)

OK, now apply these questions to your list:

1. What was the first song you ever heard by 6? Little Ramona

2. What is your favourite album of 8? Tupelo Honey

3. What is your favourite lyric of 5? "If I had ever been here before on another time around the wheel I would probably know just how to deal with all of you."

13. Is there a song by 2 that makes you sad? Angel From Montgomery, which is by John Prine, but sung no more soulfully than by Bonnie.

Damn. Isn't it bad enough that you crashed my mini vacation?? Now that I've checked your blog, I have to take a quiz on top of it?!?! heheh (It took me an hour, what with beer and smoke runs...that's the only reason I'm bitter) :::big smile:::

Where would any of us be without our music? I am happy to see that Van made your list....I knew I must have liked you for a reason.

WWBB? What would Beelers blog? I'd be interested to read his list.
 
Very interesting list... It's reminded me that I really should replace that Tupelo Honey tape I lost about a decade ago! "Just like honey baby, from the bee".
 
Yeh, Tupelo runs just a hair above Moondance and Astral Weeks. Ahh, early Van! There is nary a bad tune on his first five albums.
 
You have three names I'm not familiar with up there..... you'll have to let me know when you get some boots!
 
Keep an eye out yaself for any torrents of 4,6 or 10 ;)

I'm amazed you haven't come by the NMA*s - totally awesome live band!
