3 Songs for Saturday

I'm doing the Media Mayhem blog hop hosted by RJR Daydreamer this weekend and today we post 3 songs with reasons for choosing them. Here are mine:

1) INXS - Need You Tonight. Great lyric: "Your moves are so raw." This was a favorite from college. My best friend and I sang it and nodded our heads like the video. I got to see them in a smaller venue concert and later briefly dated a guy that looked like Michael Hutchence.




2) Cake - Ruby Sees All. Great lyric: "Do you think she's swimming in your lies?" I loved Cake before they were popular (in the 90s) and I still do. So you may not recognize this song, but it's one of my favorites =)





3) Seether - Country Song. Great lyric: "Pray when you need advice." This is my current favorite. I especially like that my son likes it too =)


And there you have it. That was a fun stroll down memory lane =)

INXS was so cool back in the day. I still have a couple of their songs on my ipod.

I saw INXS too !! A venue called The Appollo in Manchester only small and we fought to the front ending up next to the speakers!! I couldn't hear for three days !! Excellent night though !

Great pics!

Loved INXS. I was devastated when Michael committed suicide.

I am familiar with Cake and Seether but I'll have to check if I know those songs.

Oh I LOVED INXS back in the 80s, I listened to the Kick album constantly for a while. Need You Tonight is awesome.

Great choices!

Ah! I got to see INXS too---not small venue though. :( Mine was mediumish. I still remember exactly what I wore.

Lucky you dating a Michael Hutchence look alike. Love the Seether lyric. Hope you're having fun in Columbus and that both boys' teams are doing well. :)
