A List of My Favorite Songs

Indigo, a blog friend, just now tagged me for a meme. Well, you all know how I feel about memes, but I have not yet addressed the topic of music on this blog yet, so I felt that now would be a good time to do so. Indigo, I hope this will suffice.

I now present the WilkeWorld playlist:

1. It's My Life--Talk Talk. I know that No Doubt remade this song recently, but I still prefer the original. I also dig the original video that includes numerable pictures of random animals. It fits right in here at WilkeWorld because, well, I say it does.

2. The Devil Went Down to Georgia--The Charlie Daniels Band. You can never have too many dueling banjos. Here at WilkeWorld, we like dueling banjos.

3. Djobi, Djoba--The Gypsy Kings. We are not without our culture here at WilkeWorld.

4. Ring Around the Rosie--The 2 yr. old version. Just because it brings a smile to my face.

5. Home, Home on the Range--Grandpa Jones version. It was the one song that I heard my father sing with gusto. It brings back loads of great memories.

6. I Hope You Dance--LeAnn Womack. I have my totally selfish reasons for including this here but it definitely belongs on the soundtrack.

7. Rock of Ages--Def Leppard. Because it rocks.

8. In The Mood--Glenn Miller Orchestra. Its just a classic and needs to be included, plus I am a bit of sucker for good horns.

9. Stand Down Margaret--English Beat. I know this is a political song, but I just think it is so smart and so musically addictive.

10. The Theme from the Bridge Over the River Kwai. One of my stepdaughters favorites and a favorite of mine as well. I think everyone pretty much likes it.

There you have it. The WilkeWorld playlist. My wife will be a bit disappointed that ABBA is not included and I have to say I am a bit torn up that the Carpenters didn't make it either. Oh, well.

I love that you put your own spin on it.... why didn't I think of that???

Ring Around The Rosie was a big hit in our house a few years ago, we played it every night before bed with Kid. After we'd play Duck Duck Goose, and the dogs would have to participate too.

You have some good tastes in music! I don't know of anyone else today that likes The Devil Went Down to Georgia! LOL, I also love Talk Talk, Def Leppard (Rock of Ages was my favorite), and old Grandpa Jones gospel songs.

I love The Devil Went Down to Georgia. It's one of those songs that I've got absolutely memorized. I, too, love the battling music.
