I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Amie Street Wednesday

Mark from Mouseclone started his own meme today, where he is highlighting bands he discovered on Amie Street. I love the site, and have discovered quite a few bands there that I really like. If you want to participate, and really dig the embedded player, please use Mouseclone’s linkback. When you are on the artists’ page at Amie St., there is a button under their profile pic that says “Promote this artist”. he resulting page will give you all the code you need to embed either one song or a whole album. Pretty nice of them, I think.

So, for my first Wednesday Band Spotlight, I’m going with Neuromance. Tell me what you think of Transit Station.

I’d like to see them sometime. I wonder if they ever get to the East coast… When you are checking them out, don’t miss the tracks Pocket Knife and Machine World.

Sunday Seven 104

I was looking at Patrick’s site and saw a post about the impact that a theme song can have on a political campaign.

As I was typing that, I was reminded of theme songs for intros of, say, pro wrestlers. I think that I will start requesting that any time I make an entrance someplace, whether it be a meeting at work, or when walking into a bar, that the music be changed to one of my theme songs. After I have them all trained to do this, then I’ll gradually increase my demands to include the use of the fog machines, shooting of flares, and the display of video close-ups on an overhead widescreen for those in the crowd seated too far away to be able to see very well.

The Sunday seven asks for one theme song, but in order to make it a Sunday Seven, I’m making a list of seven theme songs I’d use for either public entrances or for political campaigns:

  1. Wilco — What Light
  2. Shawn Colvin — Even Here We Are
  3. Poets and Pornstars — Get Your Kicks
  4. Black Crowes — Remedy
  5. Norah Jones — Any Other Day
  6. Rilo Kiley — Under The Blacklight
  7. Boston — Don’t Look Back

Just off the top of my head.
