Ian (setaian) What are you listening to at the moment?
What are your all time favorite songs?

Share the music that makes you fly or cry. Doesn't matter if it's Baroque or Punk, Pop or Jazz.

Best Threes

If you're in the mood give me three songs by category. The category can be anything you like. It could be songs you like to dance to, or it could be songs where the singer is playing a Gibson Guitar. The choice is up to you.

I randomly re-watched the Tim Minchin concert on Youtube the other day, and I have had "Thank you god" going through my head since then!

Love the XTC song too. Maybe that will take up residence in my brain for a couple of days instead.

He's kind of brilliant. I can't comprehend that level of talent. Have you seen his University of WA speech? It's pretty funny.
