Up to Three MEME

Bookhart created a very challenging meme recently, based on music. I have to admit, music is not my thing. I mean, I like to listen to music, but given a choice, I'll go with Ani or Gillian or Eliza or Patty.

Most of the time, however, I listen to music chosen by the girls - The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Billy Jonas, Pete Seeger, John Lithgow...the list goes on. Their musical taste is much more diverse than mine.

This can be credited to Jesse, who has an extremely developed palate for and love of music. So, I thought it only right that he should complete this meme. So, all the way from Ohio, please welcome...Jesse!!

Jennifer said...

Oh, God, I was totally dreading the potential tag while scrolling down your blog. I'll get back to ya! (boy I am going to look uncool)

Agent X said...

alright...I did it. It took too long and well...couldn't you just insert the "angela drinking wine" song list from your computer? Just kidding... sort of. Must sleep now.

Lisa said...


Karla May said...

OMG, I just read your comment on Badger's blog and had to come over to yours to tell you that I TOO pronounce them "Vianna" (as in Violet) sausages. Whenever I pronounce that word. Which is almost never. But every time I do, whoever's within earshot gives me utter shit about it. I'm so glad I'm not the only freak out there.

Jesse said...

I wanted to add "Sweet Jane" by Two Nice Girls (Velvet Underground Cover)to my cover songs I love category.

Did I tell you that Hannah requested "Angry Anymore" by Ani the other day?
