Mighty Musical Meme

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.

I got the letter X, courtesy of Badger on Fire. (Evilllllll Badger).

First I give you the Smashing Pumpkins with "XYU":

I saw them at a festival or two in my youth. Great memories!

Next, I give you:

They Might Be Giants with "XTC vs Adam Ant". This band remind me of a great friend and this is one of their rockiest tunes.

The Foo Fighters with "X-static". Grunge never died.

Blondie with "X-Offender". Blondie rules.

Now, I'm really struggling... I could go for the obvious "Xanadu" by Olivia Newton John, but I don't really like her, apart from in Grease. So as a bit of a fib, let's go for Black Eyed Peas' "XOXOXO". I do like some of their stuff, but it's mainly my daughter's taste.

Questions from my online polls lately.

- Who at home is responsible for the tv remote control: one of the options being 'we pay someone to do it for us'. Yes, the butler does it, dahhhling.

- All religions are equally valid. With options for strongly agree, agree, disagree and strongly disagree. What about the option for equally INvalid? Haha.

- Do your friends follow a religion and to tick boxes for which ones. Atheism is included as a religion [head-desk], and there's no option for 'other'. I can understand not including any but the big-name religions, but surely an 'other' option for the happy heathens and ponderous pagans I know?

- Are milking cows male or female? Bloody hell.

And bizarrely,

- Do you think cows laugh?
