7-Song Tag!

Okay, Kathy, over at TudorFan just tagged me to share seven of the current songs I'm in love with right now. Well, I'm not a huge music aficionado, and barely listen to any at all, but I've scraped together some that I love. They may not be current, as is in the rules, but too bad! This is all I've got people.

The rules of this tag are: List seven songs that 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 Summer.

Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to."

Here are my "Seven Songs"

1) Okay, I'm really a hip-hop kind of gal, and sometimes listen to some country while out and about driving, but when I want to listen to something that stirs my spirit, there's no better than Josh Groban. This boy can sing! My very favorite song that he's covered is Ave Maria. This song has been covered by hundreds of artists over the years, but I've yet to hear anyone do it as well. Josh on You Tube.

2) I've already gotten some slack from friends after having this next song on my blog for a while. Not that I care, mind you, because I still love the song, no matter the somewhat controversial content. Come on people, this is the 21st century! This is my one and only true "current" song. It's I Kissed a Girl, by Katy Perry.  It's got a great beat to it!  Makes me bop around while driving!

3)  This next one isn't one of my favorite song, although I do like it, but Madison's (almost 7 years old!).  It's Nickelback's Rockstar.

4)  My very favorite song of all time is Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and my favorite rendition of it was done by one of the American Idol contestants this past season--Jason Castro.  It's the Hawaiian version of the song and I just adore it.

5)  This one we can blame on Frenchie, because now she's got me loving the Cupid Shuffle!!!!!!!! 

6)  Currently I'm loving the instrumental I have on my blog's Playlist called Steam by Cardamar.  There's something ethereal and soothing about this song that I love.

7)  I think most people, if they knew the content of this next song/video would tell me, "Don't EVEN go there!  But go there, I must!  I was sent this video and the one made prior to it by a good friend, and I nearly wet myself while listening and watching.  I'm not into late-night tv and have never watched Jimmy Kimmel Live, but oh my, this is just hysterical.  Back story to this video is that Jimmy Kimmel's girlfriend made a video for him as a joke, that she was "sleeping" with Matt Damon.  This was Jimmy's way of getting back at her.  It's called... ahem... "I F***ed Ben Afflec" and it's one of the most hysterical things I've ever watched in my life.  If you're of a sensitive nature, just pass this one over.  If you're like me and don't mind profanity (although I believe it's all bleeped out) go for it!  You'll love it!  And you won't believe the stars he got to do this video!


Now I'm supposed to tag 7 other people to do this too, but I'm not going to do that. I'd rather you just participate if you think it would be fun!

Until next time, Justine :o )

    Girl Jimmy Kimmel with the whole Ben Affleck thing was frekin' hilarious I LMAO!!! I knew you would love the Cupid Shuffle it's so addicting!;) Hubby loves the Ghost Hunters and tapes it! I watch it every now and then just can't seem to get one thing without watching something else too! Oh if you haven't seen Achmed the Dead Terrorist you have to watch it on youtube! Very funny stuff;) French

  • Buffie

    I LOVE the video of Matt Damon and Jimmy's girlfriend, I laughed so hard, then the revenge one with Jimmy and Ben Afflec! OMG! Too funny LOL!!!

  • Elizabeth

    I love the Ben video, and Matt's, too!

  • Life on Bonnie Lane

    I have loved the "screwing" Matt Damon video, then just about died laughing when I first saw the one with Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck. I love their all star cast, and the first few times I saw it, somehow missed out on Brad Pitt as the pizza boy. Now wouldn't I love to be able to sing that I was "effing" Brad Pitt, but I don't take sloppy seconds, not even to Angelina Jolie, lol.

    I also love the Steam song.

    Morning Justine! Can you check your e-mail junk folder as I think my e-mails are having difficulty finding you!

    I really like that Katy Perry song. I'm going to have a go at this tag tonight - unless my boss goes out to a meeting and I can do it at work. I think we have similar music tastes too. I like all sorts - as you will discover later!

    PS can you give that wee froggy on the right a 'leg up', he's been dangling there for ages!

  • Donna

    Justine,

    How are ya today? I personally think that the whole "Drunk Guy" thing was all staged.. but it is funny as hell and I love it!!! (LOL)

    The Eagle... I'm not sure.. It looks real, and Eagles prey on animals bigger than that...so I'm gonna straddle the fence on that one. (Sounds painful... I know) LOL.

    All of the little singers are awesome... but the 6 year old little darling brought tears to my eyes to...

    Now...Ghost Hunters!!! I fell asleep on it!!!! But!!!! I recorded it, so I will watch it over the weekend! (LOL)

    TTYL,
    Donna

  • Shelia

    Hi my funny little friend! Hope your day is going well. I got song tagged, too, two times! I'm not as young and hip as you to the songs so I had to think of some of my favs. Just popping in to check on you.
    Be a sweetie today,
    Shelia ;)
