Two entries today, because I missed yesterday on account of RL.


Day 5: Your favourite female singer.

This one was hard. "But I have so many favourite female singers," said I. "There's Sinéad, there's Melissa, there's k.d., how could I choose just one?" But I'm trying to be a good meme-taker and not be all "this meme ain't the boss o' me". I could have gone with the nostalgic angle, or the voice angle, or the lyric angle, but I figured those were too limiting. So I picked the singer I could listen to no matter what mood I'm in, of whose body of work I know and love the most (and who really fits well into all those other categories in any case).

So, anyway, I picked Cheryl, because in the end, how could I not? This is the song that introduced me to her, and it was love at first listen:




Day 6: Your favourite band. I thought this would be hard, but it ended up a complete no-brainer:



I continue to insist that the Beatles were not only the first emo band but the prototype for every emo band to follow. I should really do a poll, because plenty of people don't agree with me.
