10 Songs Meme
Okay, I love doing this so whenever I get the chance, I take it. The rules of the game are simple, someone gives you a letter and you have to find ten songs that you like that start with that letter. This time around Phyrry assigned me the letter E.
Here we go in no particular order!
1. Placebo – Every You Every Me
This is one of my all time favorite songs. This is also one of the only songs that started with E that just popped into my head. E was kind of a difficult letter to come up with songs for. Either way, Every You Every Me is angry and catchy and I have liked this tracks since the first time I heard it years ago.
2. The Prodigy – Everybody In The Place (Fairground Remix)
For those of us that like electronic music, this is a classic. The Fairground Remix is my favorite version of this song.
3. Rammstein – Engel
I love the whistling at the beginning of this song and the rest of the track is something I would play if I were in a movie and getting ready to put the beat down on someone.
4. Apocalyptica – Enter Sandman
As a general rule, I am not a Metallica fan. One, is really about the only song of theirs that I truly like. However, I do like two covers of Enter Sandman. The Apocolyptica cover is my favorite followed closely by a punk version by a band called, Vice Squad. Apocalyptica kicks ass in for the most part so they made the official list.
5. Bush – Everything Zen
When I was in junior high I liked this song. Now, it's merely okay but it starts with E so it makes the list.
6. Foo Fighters – Everlong (Acoustic Version)
This is the other song I instantly thought of. Everlong is easily the best song Foo Fighters have put out in my humble opinion. Actually, it's one of my all-time favorite songs, period. I like the acoustic version better than the original because it is more simple and straightforward and this song does not need a lot of spicing up to get its point across.
7. Smashing Pumpkins – Eye
A good Smashing Pumpkins song and a solid example of the quality the group was capable of in their prime. It's not my favorite song they put out but it is a good song nonetheless.
8. Poison – Every Rose Has Its Thorn
I had the cassette that this song was originally released on when I was ten. I have always liked Poison and feel they are a good role model for all 80s hair bands. For some reason this song somehow got nominated to be a classic 80s song and thats okay, it's just that Poison put out much better songs than this one.
9. Orgy – Eva
I went through a week in which this song was played a lot. I am not sure why I like it exactly but I do and so it's here.
10. Tears For Fears – Everybody Wants To Rule The World
One of the better pop songs to come out of the 80s. This is an essential track for anyone making a 80s playlist, at least it is for me.
Okay, there you have it, my ten favorite songs that start with E. As I said, this was a toughy and to be honest, a couple of these songs are tracks that I would not normally listen to a whole lot but made the list because of the sheer lack of truly good songs that start with the second vowel in the alphabet. If anyone wants to give me another letter to take a shot at, I would be happy to do so; I do love this meme for some reason, probably because it gives me a chance to go through my music with a specific purpose and makes me listen to stuff I haven't heard or thought of in a while. Anywho, if you want to, throw me another random letter and I will see what I can do. Also, if anyone wants to participate, let me know and you will be assigned a letter.
