1.) Look at the list and bold those you have read.

Still, I'm doing this because [livejournal.com profile] capt_facepalm did:  Reminding all you happy people about the DRABBLE MEME that I participated in last year, and which still has a spot open.  It was a fun meme, and it seems like a good time to get it started again.  Like I said, I only have one drabble to go, so maybe if anyone takes me up on it and it goes around again I'll start a new one. 

Come on over!

I've been unpacking.  So now I am going to MEME!  :-)

I got this from [livejournal.com profile] litlover12 .

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload) 5 songs you love that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

My letter was "S"

1.  "She Loves You" by the Beatles.  On the German recording it is "Sie Liebt Dich."  We used to have this really complicated inside joke about the German version in high school.  ;-)





2. "Se vuol ballare" from Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro.  This singer is Feruccio Furlanetto, my favorite bass, and my favorite Figaro.  Embedding was disabled by request.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2THV4GXppZE

3. "Summer, Highland Falls" by Billy Joel.  Probably my favorite Billy Joel song.  :-)



4. "Somebody Knows You Now"  by Brad Paisley.  I like Brad Paisley, and I like sad Country songs:



5. "Sweet Baby James" by James Taylor.  I've been on a slight James Taylor kick recently.  I love this song, for the music and for the metaphor:
