wonderful willow tagged me a couple of days ago with a meme! here's the scoop. list seven songs making your summer melodic -- okay, so just seven songs you're really into this summer. the songs can be anything, from any genre, with lyrics or just instrumental. whatever rocks your world! i'm to post these meme instructions here on my blog, list my seven songs and then tag 7 other people so we can all discover what they're secretly humming in their heads. here's my picks (drum roll, please!):

six string music by jimmy buffett -- love the beat to this one!

wagon wheel by old crow medicine show -- thanks to my son, matt, for introducing me to ocms. who would have thought i'd LOVE blue grass music!

gone for good by the shins -- my favorite feel-good song when i want to dance in my art room!

society by eddie vedder -- it's hard to pick just one song of his off the into the wild soundtrack but this one wins for the thought-provoking lyrics.

waiting for the world to change by john mayer -- love it, love to sing it, love to move to it!!

home by chris daughtry -- you gotta love this guy and his success story and the sentiment really touches my heart!!

i feel fine by the beatles -- old time rock and roll at it's best!

kodachrome by paul simon -- oh to be on a road trip with my hubby, both of us singing this song, the windows rolled down, a picnic packed and the kayaks strapped on top of the jeep! that is my definition of summer!!!

ok, in case you think i'm math impaired. yes, i listed EIGHT songs. i'm a rebel, remember?

I love "I Feel Fine" by the Beatles! It is one of those that gets stuck in your head and won't leave! Fun list, Julie.

I love your guitar collage!! One of my favorites of yours I've seen so far.

WoWZa, Julie! Who knew what a kewl li'l rocker you are?!?

Love your song choices; in fact, my list would look eerily similar ... 'cept lately I've been non-stop playing Mandy Moore's "Wild Hope" CD. What!?! Did she say Mandy Moore?!? Yuppers, I did ... and I can NOT get some of those tunes outta my head. And, let me tell you, it's gettin' awfully crowded up there!

can you believe i rarely listen to music?! i just don't anymore. i'm not sure why. i think some of the reason is i always end up associating a song/album to some depressing event, ruining it for me forever. but i do have a few albums on rotation for the summer, assuming i turn on my ipod:

- the new cold play
- all weezer albums (great for summer!)
- spoon, gimme fiction and ga ga ga ga
- old jesus and mary chain
- wilco, a ghost is born
- anything by quasi
- the new amy mann

i gotta say, i love your musical tastes!

"I feel Fine" --great song, greatest band.

I notice you have a song by the Shins. I've never actually "met" anyone who has even heard of them before. I like their stuff.
