fun! the lovely vanessa of the equally lovely stopping to eat the roses has tagged me to list the seven songs that are defining my spring. the original instructions state:

"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."

i am a compulsive shuffle-skipper; i can breeze through a list of 300 songs only having actually listened to about ten. thus, i thought the best criterion for me in drafting my list would be the top seven songs for which i consistently stop the shuffle. pretty easy. so my seven of right now goes something like this:

1. you'll find a way (switch and siden remix) by santogold
2. you came to me by beach house
3. high blood pressure by prince buster
4. sebastiana by gal costa
5. rock bottom riser by gudrun gut
6. baby it's you by the shirelles
7. f-oldin' money by the fall

and hey! you can listen to them all right here.

i don't know what all these songs have to do with one another except that they're all pretty upbeat. well, not the beach house or the shirelles, but the beach house is still hopelessly pretty and the shirelles is great to sing along with. oh, and the gudrun gut is pretty low-key but very, very cool. so there you have it.

shall i continue the game? kira, tessa, inkysocks: you're it(s).
