sophieisgod: ([merlin] fuck your shit up)
Hello my lovelies! Two things, for purposes of Big Bang:

1. What are you favourite examples of female artists covering songs by male artists?
2. What are your favourite WOMEN ARE BADASS songs?

Cheers me dears! ♥
sophieisgod: ([sexy] it started on the kitchen floor)
Since I am sadly separated from my laptop, and thus unable to do any of the mix-y, upload-y stuff I had planned for the end of the year, and since after tomorrow I might not have access to LJ for a while (WOE), I'm flinging this at you now. Basically, since I fail at aesthetically pleasing picspams, it is one big random clusterfuck of a linkspam, because that is how I roll. GOOD TIMES.

Hola chicas! Just a little something, not especially Christmassy, but some music to have a bop to which is awesome. Because I love you!
La La La )
sophieisgod: (Catherine)
I am leaving you all. It is sad.

*waves graciously* )

Kate Rusby. She is lovely.

EDIT: Hah! How could I forget? Series 2 is also the series with Marissa's Hilarious Lesbian Dabblings.
sophieisgod: (Peter)
Blast from the past, anyone?

sophieisgod: (Regina)
So I was walking home from town after not getting the haircut which I am now getting tomorrow, and listening to Blur. And I like walking, and I like Blur, and the sun *finally* came out and The Universal was playing and it was A Perfect Moment.

And now I am swooning hardcore, because HOW very smexy do they all look in that video? Damon in the eyeliner! Graham looking coy! White clothes and stained red lips! But who is the sexiest member of Blur?

So my Blur high led me to the conclusion that, while I do love Oasis and I am a big gruff Northerner, Blur own my soul in the Blur/Oasis fight to the death. I think. Although I've seen Oasis twice. Blur or Oasis?

Thoughts, anyone?

Rules: Go to the music player of your choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud and press play. Use the song titles and/or one to two lines from the song as your answers.

The questions are all HP (and HP:DH) related.

Note: Some of these didn't work so well with my eclectic playlist.
Songs, Songs, Songs )

That's right, folks, another meme.

1. Have your music library ready.
2. Choose one song from your music library whose title starts with the first letter (or number) of your screen name.
3. Repeat this process with each successive letter (or number) in your screen name until you run out of letters (or numbers).
4. Post up your results.
5. BONUS POINTS: Upload your mix (whether it's individual songs or a .zip of all the the songs) and include the mix in your post.

Spelling + Music = Memey Goodness )

I can't do the zip yet, because I'm on my sister's laptop, but I'll do it when I get back to uni. Also, Northanger Abbey tonight, woop! Actually, I was reading the Observer Magazine, and they had a little piece on JJ Feild, but they spelled it 'Field'. Fools.
sophieisgod: (Regina)
Music meme! Because all the cool kids are doing it. And I am, indeed, cool. Obviously.
List your 10 favourite bands/ artists in any order, and then answer the questions.

1. Muse
2. Regina Spektor
3. Damien Rice
4. Bloc Party
5. Jeff Buckley
6. Franz Ferdinand
7. Radiohead
8. The Futureheads
9. The Smiths
10. Arcade Fire

Questions! And answers! )

In other news, new Life On Mars tonight! It's ridiculous how much I love that show. I think a lot of it is to do with the relationship between Sam and Gene, with all its levels of faith and mistrust and understanding and (repressed manly) love. I hate it when they go up against each other, but I love it because of all the angst! John Simm and My TV Boyfriend Philip Glenister both give such incredibly good angst! I'm just so excited to see how they're going to wrap up the series. There wil be betrayal, and repressed manly love, and angst, it is certain.

Except, I have to tape it tonight because of the retarded Neighbours Soc social. Grrr. It's gone downhill hand in hand with the bloody show. And I miss Shane. Grrr.

Ooh, and I had a really funny moment walking down the road to Spar with Louise yesterday. We'd watched Revenge Of The Sith on Friday, and enjoyed it, especially the manly Obi-Wan/ Anakin angst (issues? Me?)... I suddenly 'realised' that Anakin kills Obi-Wan and started wailing. Now, I've seen the film before. I own the DVDs. I already knew that that happened. I have no idea why it didn't connect on Friday night, and I certainly don't know why I 'remembered' on the way to Spar. Anyway, it's very very very sad indeed. Heartbreaking, even. Definitely more than the lame-ass Padme romance.

There's nothing on TV, okay?

-List 10 songs that begin with the letter given to you and explain why you picked them.
-Comment and I will give you a letter.

I snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] thedreamygirl

Last one for a while, I promise )

Because all the cool kids are doing it...

Step 1: Put your Media player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line(s) of the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: No cheating!

Some embarrassing, some painfully obvious... )
