    I'm seeing Deacon Blue in Sheffield this November. How awesome is that? I figured they were so old I'd never get to see them ever.

    I'll just add them to the list of other sad artists I've seen live:
    Texas
    The Beautiful South
    Billy Joel

    Rock on me.
  • My weekly artist chart

    24. Jul. 2006, 11:31 von madhattie34

    I thought I'd have a look at the artists I've been listening to in the last week.

    1 Fall Out Boy 87
    I seriously didn't realised I'd listened to so much fall out boy last week. This has put them as my fourth most played artist I think. They've overtaken Panic! =O I had a better look at "From under the cork tree" last week because I'd ripped Lucy's album but only really listened to the songs I already knew. "A little less 16 candles, a little more 'touch me'" would be my favourite track from last week I think.

    2 Matchbox Twenty 70
    Well, I bought all their albums last week, so I've been listening to them. So far this morning I've played them non stop for 3 hours. Whoah. I dunno what songs I've been listening to the most from them, though 3AM is probably high up the top. Love that song.

    3 Counting Crows 50
    Well, last week I got their new live album, New Amsterdam or something. I dunno its real name cos I've just got a copy of it which isn't tagged properly. …

    5. I vote for this season every time when it's hot and everybody smiles

    6. You go kaboom boom into my heart

    7. Mum always said nothing would break me or lead me astray

    8. Everybody's high on consolation, everyone is trying to tell me what is right for me

    10. He was a boy and she was a girl - can I make it any more obvious?

    Why were the 80s good and bad?

    The 80s were good because the world seemed like a whole different place to me back then. A time when you could have a tartan jacket with metal buckles on it and not even care. The frosty mornings when there was always spider webs in the hedges on the way to school and Stock Aitken and Waterman were Gods were not appreciated enough at the time.

    The 80s were bad only if you can't remmber anything good about them which I can.
