Meme pinched from imbeiaiel

Step 1: Put your iPod or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING


(comments will be screened until songs have been guessed!!)

hmmmmm, I am listening to Barber's Adagio while I am writing screenplays because it puts me in the mood for the dramatic poo I am writing. There are no lyrics, just mooooooood music. LOL It is a very familiar piece of music if you ever watch emotional epics....I do so love to cry at a movie. sniff, sniff. ***ping*** you have mail. *hugs Lou*

Barber's Adagio is LOVE! I played that when i was on an orchestra tour in Prague- one of the venues was this big cathedral and the accoustics were just..... wow! the bit when the orchestra gets higher and higher and louder and louder til it reaches that climax of long held chords? the echo went on for ages... just GORGEOUS!

**blushes** I wrote two post saying the same thing because I didn't think the first one made it. technofear I am afraid strikes again. bwah! But yes, it is one magnificant piece of gloriously inspired music. I Can barely listen to it without getting transported to wonderful places and depth of emotions.
