Listography: Six Songs of Me

The Guardian has a great little feature as part of their Music section that's called Six Songs of Me.

It gives you 6 questions to answer all about music and then shows you everyone else's results. I thought I'd run a mini version here as a Listography (even though it breaks the golden self-imposed 'only 5' rule). Feel free to join in by listing yours in the comments, on Facebook or on your own blog and then linking up below.

Here we go.

1. What was the first song you ever bought?
Chris De Burgh Spanish Train. Let's move on shall we?

2. What song always gets you dancing?
In truth I'm usually too drunk to remember - it's the only time you'll get me on a dance floor. However I'm going to say Nirvana 'Smells like teen spirit' - and with good reason - I reckon if I can head bang to it in my wedding dress I can dance to it pretty much anywhere.

3. What song takes you back to your childhood?
Adam Ant - Prince Charming. My first crush before I even knew what a crush was.

4. What is your perfect love song?
I'm going to have to steal my other half's choice here - Nick Cave's 'Into my Arms' - hauntingly beautiful.

5. What song would you want at your funeral?
'If you don't know me by now'. Maybe.

6. Time for the encore. One last song that make you you.
Bob Marley 'Kaya'

There's always been Bob. From past boyfriends to distant travels, from meeting husband to in-labour music, from naming our kids to dancing with them in the kitchen. There's always been Bob.

The linky is now open, so get listing!
