song meme: days 19 and 20

Day 19 - a song from your favourite album

my favourite album? there are several albums that rank up there...albums that have several great songs, the rest good songs, and nary a clunker to be found. that's the thing...most albums, even by bands i love, have a song or two that just aren't up to snuff.

but, if i had to pick one album...i'd probably go with "Secret Samadhi" by Live. never before and never since did Live do an album that was nearly as good as that one. it was their experiment with being harder-edged, and i'm annoyed that so many people thought it was a failed experiment, or just not up to snuff with "Throwing Copper". it was a different animal, not what people were expecting...but it was better, and almost anything i listen to by Live anymore is off this album

Day 20 - a song that you listen to when you’re angry

for as unhappy [and even angry] as most of the music i listen to may be, i really don't get angry all that often. it's just not my personality. however, sometimes things get under my skin enough to make me truly angry. and, nowadays, when that happens...i'm most likely to play "Tears Don't Fall" by Bullet For My Valentine.
