Seven spring songs meme, in the summer Aug 02

A while ago I was tagged by Millennium Elephant to take part in the seven songs meme, the rules of which are:

“List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.”

Spring had already passed by the time Millennium named me amongst his seven, so these are rather more summery than springy. And much as men like making lists, mine are usually very transitory, so I would probably have picked a different seven yesterday. But here are today’s seven, complete with videos from YouTube.

Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt – We Are Scientists

I Love You ‘Cause I Have To – Dogs Die in Hot Cars

I Will Survive – Cake

Ain’t Going to Goa – Alabama 3

I’ve recently been familiarising myself with Alabama 3’s first album, Exile on Coldharbour Lane, which is great fun. The track I’ve picked is a single I’ve owned since 1997ish.

Repeated Offender – The Rifles

Very pleased to find The Rifles, via my brother. This song, from 2006, is one of many good tracks on their No Love Lost album.

Tickle Me Pink – Johnny Flynn

Each week the iTunes store offers a Single of the Week free download. I discovered this when it was Single of the Week a month or two back.

The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song – The Flaming Lips

A highlight of the London Lovebox festival a couple of weekends ago was the Flaming Lips headline set on the Sunday night. That was the first time I heard this and it was amongst several Flaming Lips tracks I bought when I got home. The video, it turns out, is as weird as their stage show.
