Friday Five

I'm a little behind on the Friday Five.

1) What was the first song you remember hearing and enjoying on the radio?

There are three that come to mind:
Sukiyaki - A Taste of Honey
Elvira - Oak Ridge Boys
The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels Band

So, um disco and country in the early, early years?

The first album I owned, however, was Blondie - Parallel Lines

2) If you could only listen to five CDs for a year, which five would they be? (Boxed sets can count as one CD. Sigh.)

1. The Posies Box Set
2. REM - Dead Letter Office
3. Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
4. The Cure - The Head on the Door
5. Kirsty MacColl - Titanic Days

3) What was your favorite year, music-wise?

Maybe 1989, that's when I discovered both REM and the Posies. ;)

4) If you could witness one historical music event through all time, what would you pick, and why?

You know, I'm not really sure. I would have liked to see Elvis or the Beatles.

5) Do you have a song that never fails to cheer you up? What is it and why does it do that for you?

American Jesus - Bad Religion, even if it makes me drive too fast and Mr. Horrible - They Might be Giants.

From the FridayFiver:

1. Soothing sound:

Traffic outside the window (don't know why), loud fans, and the ocean.

2. Comfort food:

Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes or mac and cheese.

3. Relaxing music:

Billie Holliday

4. Gentle voice:

no clue.

5. Calming smell:

apples and cinnamon
