To call for hands of above

It's Friday, and luckily this week I've been (just about) organised enough to make sure we have a Guest Editor to lead us in our devotions....

Let's get stuck straight in then, eh?

Ladies and Gentleworms... without further ado... it is my great pleasure to present for your earworming pleasure.....

Earworms of the Week - Guest Editor #34 - Phil from Freespurge

So this is me on the infamous blog of Swisstoni writing my very own Earworms post.

As ST explained it to me my task is to list the 10 tunes that have been stuck in my head this week. I'll be honest, when he first asked me I thought it'd be really easy as two tunes sprang to mind instantly (then proceeded to play on an endless loop)but I've had to give it some thought as to what the other 8 tracks that have doubtlessly been earworming my psyche.

Okay, down to business;

10. "Heartbeats" - Jose Gonzalez

Steph bought me the Jose Gonzalez album (coz she's great) and the track "Hearbeats" has been featuring quite often on my mental playlist. For those that haven't heard it, just look out for the Sony Bravia tv advert, it's the track they use for that.

9. "Cosmo Canyon" (from Final Fantasy VII)

This one is obscure at best, incredibly sad at worse, but it's something that's been running through my wee-brain for ages, and I mean AGES, which is "Cosmo Canyon" used in the Squaresoft game Final Fantasy VII. I've been wanting to get hold of the game for the PC for ages, having enjoyed it so much on the PlayStation. Having just one it on E-bay I managed to download it the soundtrack, and the track is just as cool as I remember.

8. "In The Crossfire" - Starsailor

From their new album 'On the Outside'. There's no real reason for this other than I really like this song.

7. "I Love You Baby" - Andy Williams

This has been running through my head for the past 5 days solid entirely because Steph's been here and I've always felt like singing it when she's around in a suitably self-deprecating silly fashion that makes her laugh, but appreciates the sentiment.

6. "Most of the Time" - Bob Dylan

...as featured in the film 'High Fidelity'. It's one of my favourite songs and is regularly on my MP3 playlist.

5. "Knocking on Heavens Door" - Bob Dylan

...because it's just amazing. Really short though.

Both of these have been running round my noodle because my flatmate is writing his dissertation on the Poetry of Bob Dylan and so, inevitably, songs come to the surface.

4. "Better Together" - Jack Johnson

It's such a "nice" song. It's very sweet and easy to like, but, I suppose, easy to get annoyed with, but again, because of the recent girlfriendness and Valentines Day it's a song that's been playing a lot in my head.

3. "Suddenly I See" - KT Tunstall

It's a great song. I'm not sure as to its rating against other tracks on the album, but it's a CD that's been playing over the last few days and that's the one that seems to have a vice like grip on me, especially when I'm in the shower. Best left well alone...

2. Firefly - Main Theme

For anyone who reads or has even glanced at my blog you'll know that I'm a little bit of a fan for Firefly and Serenity. So as such it's probably no real surprise that "Firefly - Main Theme" has been a tune I hum while pottering about. Seeing as Troy is a fan too and periodically plays the soundtrack as often as me, it's a song I hear alot.

1. "Love" (from the "Serenity" soundtrack)

Lastly this track from the Serenity soundtrack. It's a kick ass piece that's, for those that have seen it, is at the end of the film when Serenity takes off with Mal and River at the controls. It's got so much energy and I'll often just play that track (loud) because it puts me in a positive mood.

So there we go, my guest spot on Swisstoni's place over already. I hope folk enjoyed my Earworms.

Thanks Phil. Another good list. I like having Guest Editors. I suppose I'll just have to pull my finger out and line up a few more for the next few weeks, eh? Any volunteers? I want to get to 50 before we start having people have a second go, mind...

In other news, the fridges are now with Yoko for analysis and should be up on here in the next few days. I know you can hardly wait....

    Hey! I like the Firefly theme! And I jsut got through the series again, the entire soundtrack to the series is amazing.

    Some excellent other choices too, I love Bob Dylan. Amazing. Although, I like "Tangled Up In Blue" myself.

    I can't believe you like Andy Williams. He has a theater in a city about a half hour from me...*shivers* Come every christmas I see his big smiley face all over my TV screen.

    Okay, freaked out now. But, still, good list. I knew most of them too [woohoo]

    Dude, that was wicked fun. And I liek the Firefly theme,too.
    Sad to say that, apart from Tangled Up In Blue, Dylan generally works my last nerve. I think some harmonic in his voice is the problem, because I love his stuff when other people cover.

    And, of course, now I get to use the term 'earworm' and seem cool. Heh.

    Firefly!! Ace tune!!

    As for Dylan. A few songs work for me, quite a lot of them don't.

    It's good tp see so many folk appreciating Firefly. Longlive the Browncoats.

    For reasons of accuracy (being as I do like a bit of Andy Williams) isn't it "Can't Take My Eyes Off You"?

    pedantry over.
