If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Top ten Countdown Entry (music)

Alex is graciously hosting an easy Top ten music countdown blogfest. Click here to see the other participants


The rules:
"Music moves us. It inspires us! Now, tell the world YOUR ten favorite songs of all time. The Song, the band – why does it move you?"




 10) "I love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett. I love this song because it is wonderful to dance to, I know all the words, and it makes me feel good to hear her sing. It has a great dancing beat.


9) "Rag Doll" By Aerosmith. Again this has a wonderful dancing beat to it and his voice is sexy in this one.


8) "Keep Holding On" by Avril Lavigne. I connect this song with my children, we sing it together.


7) "Haunted" By Evenescense. I enjoy this song because she has a powerful voice and her lyrics are haunting :)


6) "I kissed A Girl" By Katy Perry. I enjoy this song because I relate to the lyrics, special in my early twenties and experimenting.


5) "Bad Romance" by Lady GaGa. This song has a wonderful dancing beat and her songs are usually unique which makes me enjoy them


4) "Thriller" by Michael Jackson. I have fond memories with this song of me and my best friend in third grade dancing and singing to it in her bedroom.


3) "Smile" by Uncle Cracker. This song reminds me of my Manly man <3


2) "Masochism Tango" by Tom Leher. I enjoy this because it is funny, and funny songs are at the heart of my music love. (If you haven't heard it, look it up on you tube)


 and my number one song is


 "Hubba Hubba Zoot Zoot" By Caramba. This song is made entirey of nonesense words, the band got together and thought it would be fun to have all made up words in a song, and I adore it. here is the you tube video for it-

A great fun list - the last one is a hoot! I always think there's an awesome tap dance routine in Rag Doll.

I think Bad Romance should go down as one of Gaga's best songs ever.

Hubba Bubba Zoot Zoot was the only song I hadn't heard of before. So I had to sit down and listen to it. So cool!

Tara said...

I can't agree more about Amy Lee - what a talented woman!

Budd said...

I think you broke the internet by putting Aerosmith, Lady Gaga, and Michael Jackson all together.

So, you like strange and flamboyent artists.

M Pax said...

Joan Jett! Brings back some very fond memories. Great list.

Stephanie said...

Tons of great stuff there!!!!!! I have Gaga on my top 10 too...but not that one :)

Hannah Kincade said...

That's a great list! "Thriller" is def one of my fave MJ songs.

Wendy Tyler Ryan said...

Love your list summer. I love most of these. As for the last one, if they ever make a movie out of your fairy stories this could be a theme song. I can see little fairies dancing arounds giant toadstools to this song!

Arlee Bird said...

Certainly an upbeat list. I am familiar with about half of the songs.

Hubba Hubba!! What a great beat. OMG that thing is going to be stuck in my head now. Quick, somebody grab another song, LOL. That was a cool idea.

Karen Peterson said...

Fun choices! Hadn't heard that last one before.

Meika said...

Such fun songs!

Mysti said...

Love those! I'm quite fond of "Smile" and anything by Evanescence. The lead singer, Amy Lee, was the inspiration for the look of my current main female character, except my girl has slightly pointed ears and claws :)

Trisha said...

I don't know a lot of these songs or artists, but your list definitely sounds fun :D

RosieC said...

That's a fun list. I didn't know Katy Perry had a song by that title. I thought she must have remade this one by Jill Sobule. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QaeojQLGQ8 I'm glad to see it's something a little different.

Thanks for sharing :)
