Sunday Stealing

Unusual Music

1. A song that gives you goosebumps. "Tears Dry on Their Own" by Amy Winehouse. Damn, she was good.

2. A song you hated once but now love.
"Rocket Man." I used to think it was oblique and over played. Now it reminds me of the olden days.

3. Do you remember your first CD?
I'd already purchased it twice, and scratched it twice, on vinyl.

4. Has your music taste changed much since childhood?
I'm more open now. I used to dismiss Sinatra as a relic, like white gloves and rotary dial phones. Now I appreciate him as a singer (and actor). The man was a genius.

5. Favorite genre?

6. What’s a genre or style of music that you just don’t understand? Classical. It alternately bores and annoys me.

7. Do you have a process for listening to music, such as listening to the instruments more than words?
I love the sound of the vocals.

8. What’s your favorite thing about your favorite song? "September" never fails to lift my spirits.

9. Do you have a favorite decade for music?
The 1960s.

10. Can you play any instruments? No.

11. Do you remember your first favorite song?
It was a Halloween/witch song from Kindergarten. "Stirring and stirring and stirring my brew. Woo woo, woo, woo. Tip toe. Tip toe. Tip toe. BOO!"

12. What was the first concert you ever attended?
Bobby Sherman. I was still in grade school. He had fabulous hair and good teeth. Don't judge me.


  1. Oh, we sang that little witch song too. I remembered it as soon as I read the words. I wonder if there was more to it? I shall have to look it up.

  2. Laughed at your comments about Sinatra. Sorry about your dislike of classical is SO varied. I love the "classic" classical, not so much the newer "splat" music.

  3. Oh my goodness. Josh would say the same thing about classical music and I love it. hahahahaha too funny. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!

  4. I agree with you on Rocket Man. I was never a fan back in the day, but I find myself singing along these days.
    Sinatra grows on you. I didn't particularly care for his music when I was younger, but I do now and I'm glad I agreed to go with my mom, grandmother and great-aunt to see his Diamond Jubilee tour.
    Bobby Sherman...I think I had a 45 of his that was on cardboard (the back of the cereal box) back in the late 60's or early 70's. I had a couple of songs by the Archie's too.

  5. I love Born in the USA. What a great album! I also am listening to Western Stars quite a bit. It's magnificent!
