andthesparrows tagged me to list my 6 favorite songs of the moment. And here I thought no one would do it!

1. Trick of the Tail - Genesis (Trick of the Tail)
2. Squonk - Genesis (Trick of the Tail)
3. Dance on a Volcano - Genesis (Trick of the Tail)
4. In Too Deep - Genesis (Invisible Touch)
5. The Rhythm of the Heat - Peter Gabriel (Security aka 4)
6. Driving the Last Spike - Genesis (We Can't Dance)

That's not in any particular order. Squonk is by far #1. In other G-related news, Disturbed is going to cover Land of Confusion, I got my Lamb t-shirt from cafepress in the mail, and I found another fan in Bethesda with whom I can do a slew of trading. Ebay is eating me alive. Life is generally good because when things are getting me down, I'm able to dance on the volcano, visit the city of gold, or dissolve into a pool of tears.

Ooh I bet that cover will be good!
I thought of you--I was reading American Psycho and there is a whole chapter analyzing and discussing Genesis. That and the Huey Lewis and Whitney Houston diatribes were pretty much it's only redeeming qualities.

I have high hopes for the cover as well. I don't really like Disturbed all that much but it's topical, and could stand a bit of rocking-up.

Oh god... I loathe the existence of that book so very, very much. It hurts me. I am so sorry you read it. :(

Note to anyone else: don't talk to me about that book! It hurts me!!

I didn't even finish it. Meh.

No more talk of that book!

Hey were you interested in doing my mix challenge? :)
Jun. 10th, 2005 07:29 pm (UTC)
YES! and I totally slacked on the May 13 one! But I've got a fresh pack of CD-R's burning a hole thru my desk--so let me know when the next one is!!

I'm thinking up my track listing now! I'll try to get it in the mail next Mon or Tues!!

Did you get the Postal Service cover of "Against All Odds" off of ITunes?
Jun. 10th, 2005 07:47 pm (UTC)
No, but thanks for the heads up, I certainly will now!
Jun. 10th, 2005 08:06 pm (UTC)
Excellent. :D

That version is the most played song on my iPod. I fell in love with it the fall before last. One of my top favorites!!

/me runs off to do so
Jun. 10th, 2005 08:04 pm (UTC)
Excellent. Everyone needs it. ;I

Is that a Fancy Froglin icon? SNAZZY!

Jun. 10th, 2005 08:11 pm (UTC)
Why yes, yes it is. :)

It turns out I like the Dune cover better.

There are like 93247385 covers of this song!

I also confess I like Mariah Carey's cover. Alot.

Including the Scott Savol version! AIGH.
Jun. 10th, 2005 11:20 pm (UTC)
Hehe. ;I

There's a (free) cover of "In the Air Tonight" over at EM411... and (for some non Genesis/Genesis-related covers) 8bitpeoples has some neat stuff done only with gameboys and nintendos.

I love the entire Security album so very, very much. As a result, my former coworkers all loathe it and will happily rant for hours about what an awful person I am for listening to it at work every day for six months. :D

Someone did that to me with Bjork's Vespertine. ohmigod i hate Bjork now.
Jun. 11th, 2005 04:41 am (UTC)
Oh, Squonk. I can't even deal with that song, at all. It used to make me LOSE it when I was little, and I haven't been able to get past the first minute or so as an adult without getting all choked up - it's Pavlovian at this point, I think.
Jun. 11th, 2005 05:25 am (UTC)
I am so glad someone understands. I didn't get what the song was about right away... Is it weird that I identify with this fairytale animal?
Jun. 11th, 2005 09:59 am (UTC)
Oh my god, not at all. It's a really well-written song - I think you're supposed to identify and get all weepy. (Damn you, Genesis!)
