I have a little favour to ask anyone who would care to answer the call. We’re having a Western Themed event for Bec & Erik’s combined Hens & Bucks show. And. Well. We need music. xD
We don’t want to listen to terrifying Country & Western all night (though a few choice tracks will be peppered in I’m sure) but its actually hard to come up with stuff that’s good and STILL party atmosphere! xD
We’ve got the Deadwood soundtrack, umpteen versions of These Boots Were Made for Walking, some other Nancy Sinatra, a little Tom Waits but… Honestly? We can’t really just have that on repeat all night. xD
SO! Does anyone have any suggestions? Songs with v. wild west lyrics? Music that sounds like its straight out of the era? I’d LOVE to hear them! I’ve probably got much much more than I think in my collection (I’m sure I’ve got Will Smith kicking around here ;)) but anything even for a memory jog would be epics!
Edit: I asked Greg if he was going to suggest something TERRIFYING (he’s very into death metal and post metal) but he took one look at the post and announced that I “..need the Young Guns Soundtrack!” and MY GOD he’s right. Also some Zeppelin that would work perfectly. YAY!
THANKS IN ADVANCE, ARMS CALLER ANSWERER TYPE PEOPLES! :D
They had me at hello Attenborough! ♥ Mythosidhe posted this video on her livejournal this morning and it filled me with absolute love – and the need to fling myself at the Symphony of Science website to absorb and download everything I could get my wiggling fingers upon.
I’d love to have all of this on projectors all over the walls of a space while a party was going on, a soundtrack of minds & voices lyrically filling your head with learning.
Before I actually do this whole thing, I want to go on record that: I HAVE A MASSIVE PROBLEM WITH THIS CHALLENGE! Namingly: this challenge includes me having only ONE favourite book/movie/song. THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE. And thusly I’m going to interpret these as loosely as I like. So there. xD
So for day one, I’m listing my top 25 most played songs on my iTunes list. These songs are all rated five stars (bar one I believe) and though I love with a vengeance many, many MANY other songs – I’ve got to draw the line SOMEWHERE. xD
