Inspiration for posts comes from many sources, the inspiration for  this musical meme came from Kelly, see her answers by clicking HERE.

What’s the most annoying song in the world?
Like Kelly I agree that it's often those songs that stick in your memory despite all efforts to erase them. I think Agadoo by Black Lace would come pretty high up on my list.

See, I told you so, annoying isn't it?

What’s the saddest song in the world?
No need to think about this one ....... Tell Laura I Love Her by Ricky Valence. Click HERE to see the lyrics and tell me if this doesn't bring a tear to your eye.

What’s the sexiest song in the world?
Ooh! Erm! Black Velvet by Alannah Myles. A song written about Elvis Presley, I love Alannah's voice, so sexy.

Name a new, to you, band or music artist that you can’t get enough of.
A group that tours the club circuit here in the UK, called Fiddlinfantastic who play all kinds of music with 'a twist'.

Have you met any famous musicians?
In a word, no.

What song best describes your life?
'May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young'
- Meat Loaf.
Not exactly the song that best describes my life but something I like to remember, to think of when I'm feeling less than strong. (click HERE to see all the lyrics).

How important is your partner’s taste in music to you?
We do have some musical tastes in common but only some, others he only gets to play when I'm not around. No, the main problem with his music is the volume at which he likes to listen to it.

Do you sing in the shower?
Of course.

What was the last live music show you attended? Did you buy a T-shirt?
Not a fan of live music, I don't like crowds. The last concert I attended was  Meat Loaf and though I didn't buy the t-shirt I got a programme.

What’s the sweetest song in the world?
Ooh, I'll have to think about this one. How about .......
'If I should smile with sweet surprise
It's just that you've grown up before my very eyes
You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen
Happy birthday sweet sixteen'?
- Neil Sedaka.

Can you play a musical instrument?
Are you in a band or are you a performing solo music artist? If yes, what kind of music do you play?
No and no.

Have you ever dated a musician?
Sort of. Husband dearest was the drummer in a church group (does that count?) years ago. He sold his drum kit in order to buy my engagement ring.

Are you a groupie?
What do you think?

If you listen to the radio, what station and type of music are you tuned to the most?
Not a fan of radio, I prefer to listen to my CD's

Ooooo....I'm so glad you decided to do this, too!! I really enjoyed seeing your answers.

Hmmm...so hubby plays the drums? I always thought that would be fun. I certainly do my share of drumming on the steering wheel while driving!

Karen said...

OK - that really is an obnoxious song. I didn't listen tot he whole thing for fear of getting it stuck in my head for the day.
Thanks for sharing your musical interests with us!

Is it wrong that I didn't click to hear the most annoying song in the world? I'll take your word for it. And I saw this on another blog and marked it down as something to do … Thanks for reminding me of it. I think the questions are just great!

We used to play Tell Laura I Love Her very often back in hostel days.Would like to hear Black Velvet .Loved reading your answers :)

Suko said...

I enjoyed this musical interlude! That song is annoying, especially with the video--ugh!

Nikki-ann said...

Oh no, I'm going to have Agadoo in my head for ages now!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

This is fun!

I happen to think that the most annoying song is the Bieber song since it gets into my head until I scream (and not in a good way).

I think your hubs was SO sweet! To sell his kit for a ring? Awwwww

The Golden Eagle said...

That is an annoying song. :P

We don't listen to the radio much, either.

Also, you mentioned not finding instructions on how to vote for writers in the Campaign. There should be a list of links here and buttons below each one with "like" and a thumbs-up on them. You just click on the one below the entry you want to vote for and it's counted. :) Hope that helps--and I'm glad you enjoyed my story!

Aw, that is so sweet that he sold his drum kit to buy your ring - that's true love!

The most annoying song like the most boring actor. The latter is easy to point- "Sylvester Stallone". The boring song um there are many but got to think.
And radio music - ya they are great when you travel by car, especially if one is at the wheel.
