Seeing I Will Survive on your list just reminded me of a few random songs that now whenever I hear them make me think of NZ:

I'm Yours - Jason Mraz
Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
Sweet Transvestite - Rocky Horror Picture Show

MM, we got my Mom the Sylvester Greatest Hits CD at XMas..."Do Ya Wanna Funk" and "You Make Me Feel" are faves....in a nostalgic way. :D They're part of a list that must be requested at weddings.....:lol: Along with "You Dropped a Bomb on Me" and "Atomic Dog," all from their going-out-dancing days when we were kids and subjected to (and influenced by) their music.

I've been listening to Sweeney Todd again, as well as the Rocky Horror soundtrack, Styx Kilroy album, Train's Save me San Francisco, and The Beatles Number 1's.

YES, Laura, great things. They are songs from, erm, my late teen years and young adult years. :/ Atomic Dog was the soundtrack for a whole drunken summer in Detroit. Good times.

I love Sylvester. So unique and fabulous.

Hey you were here and drunk for a whole summer? :lol: I was 18 in 1985....that's when my Mom and stepdad married and the wedding reception was such a disco-dance party, lol! (Their 25th is in 2 wks. :) )

Listening to Bret and Jemaine right now.... :)

I was 22 and drunk all the summer of 1983, flirting with all kinds of badness in Ann Arbor/Detroit. And Atomic Dog was the soundtrack. That and Was/Not Was - the twisted early years.

I LOVE Mumford and Sons! I'm a sucker for the banjo but a cute British guy playing the banjo... :comehere: Sigh No More is an excellent album front to back.

It really is. I can't say that about many albums, but Sigh No More is one I can listen to all the way through.

My brother got me listening to Cee Lo Green. I downloaded his last album and I really like it.

That's one of my favorites. I like the explicit version better. :)

But Laura, if you watched the scene before his performance on SNL you should have figured it out. :lol:

I've never heard of him but I liked his voice and that song when he did it on SNL.

Laura, his solo stuff and also his work with Goodie Mob are great.

I have been listening to lots of Captain Beefheart. He passed in December, and was a huge musical lodestone for me.
