The music meme

Was just thinking that I haven''t been tagged for a meme for a long time, when I got hit by one from Lillian in Thailand. I thought it would be easy but it turned out to be quite tough in the end. Just realised that I am not that crazy about music anymore. A far cry from my school days when I used to memorize each and every Wham and Duran Duran song before moving into the rock ballad phase.

Here is the Music meme:

5 - You’re going on a long journey, what five albums MUST you take with you? Albums that you need to listen to regularly.

- Rod Stewart - If we fall in love tonight
- Queen - Greatest hits
- Led Zeppelin - Remasters
- Guns N' Roses - Greatest Hits
- 35 favourite Nursery Rhymes (I listen to it regularly even though I don't want to).

4 - What four albums/songs do you most associate with a journey or travel experience? You know, the ones you listen to that instantly transport you back to a place and time.

- And I love her by the Beatles. A simple song which was my favourite love song since my school days. Sang an elongated version at a Univ. event in front of a lot of people. Wish I could go back and NOT sing that song.

- Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple. Reminds me of the time I first heard them live at a concert in KL. I was with my wife, our friend Ita and her then housemate. I have been listening to them since I was a kid and these old guys are still rocking.

- Rod Stewart - If we fall in love tonight. Used to sing the songs from the Album together with my girlfriend (now my wife) every time we went to a karaoke.

- Black Magic Woman by Santana. I don't really like discos and we used to frequent a lot of places where they played live music. And every time we went out, there would be at least one person who would request this song. Kind of addictive.

3 - Your three favorite songs of all time?
- And I love her - Beatles
- I can't tell you why - Eagles
- Love Hurts - Nazareth

2 - Two feel good songs, the ones that are guaranteed to lift the blues and put a smile on your face.
- O bladi o blada by the Beatles
- Is this love by Bob Marley

1 - Absolute, overall, undoubtedly the best album of all time, in your opinion.

Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin

Now I tag anyone who's interested. Might be something you might consider when you have blogger block.

I like your taste in music, particularly the mighty Led Zeppelin. It's very difficult to choose a favorite from Zep's first six albums because they range from brilliant to masterpieces. Zep's not really been hiding, they are the best selling rock band in history(worldwide). Check out the 2003 release 'Led Zeppelin DVD', it's a jaw dropper that's the best selling music dvd in history, 20x platinum.
