Playlist Madness!

It’s me again.

(It seems like every time I think I'll be absent from LJ, I start posting even more. ?!)

I’m still working on playlists, and I have a new question:

Which songs blew you away the first time you heard them?

There are lots of songs I love … but that I didn’t love immediately.

But some songs win me over instantly, for various reasons – passion, novelty, humor, some indefinable something.

Here are a few examples:

“Why”, by Annie Lennox. I first heard this song when she sang it live on “Saturday Night Live,” and that kind of raw, angry emotion, coming from a woman was still a little shocking.

“Creep,” by Radiohead. Oh the self-loathing! Oh the falsetto wailing! Oh Thom Yorke!

“Bring Me to Life,” by Evanescence. When I first heard this on the radio, I actually called the station to ask who the artist was.

“Breathe,” by Sia. Slurry singing backed by inexorable beats – just something seductive about it.

“Hot in Herre,” by Nelly. So funny! Plus, bonus: you can dance to it. I just love, “Girl, I think my butt gettin’ big!”

Okay, I could do this for hours, but I’ve got to get back to work.

Do me a solid and share songs that rocked your world from the very first.
