On Life as a Music Meme

A friend of mine passed this along recently.

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions. Pass it on to 15 people (or not) and include me. Try not to repeat a song title. It’s harder than you think.

It’s not that hard. I did a similar meme with the Beatles about two years ago.

The other day, when I wrote that “I’m surprised I don’t make more music playlists, because when I do they usually turn out quite well,” I was referring to this list specifically. This wasn’t assembled as a playlist, yet I find that when I whipped up a playlist of these tracks, in this order, in Winamp, that it worked really well. It sounded cohesive.

Maybe I know Elbow’s music too well. Considering how many of these songs are B-sides, maybe that’s to be expected. 😉
