Musical Musings A to Z: Songs Beginning with E
Sorry for not being around last Sunday. I was still far from well after my URTI and found myself exhausted after Gilbert’s 10th birthday party.
All I could think afterwards was “how good are my kids?” Not that the party guests were bad but geez, 10 and 9 year old boys can be hard work. It gave me some much needed perspective on the behaviour of my own children, who, by comparison, are no trouble at all!
Anyway, this week I am back and it’s time for E, the fifth letter of the alphabet. E for egg, elephant, emu, eight and electricity.
E is also for Emergency on Planet Earth by Jamiroquai, off their debut album of the same name. No real surprise in my choice there. But my second choice may be a surprise…
Emergency on Planet Earth – Jamiroquai
I love the funk. I love the bass. I love the strings. I love a very young Jay Kay. I guess you could say I LOVE this song!
Epic – Faith No More
This is truly an epic song. The driving staccato beat, the awesome guitar riffs, the lone piano at the end – it’s perfect rock.
So I’ll leave you with the eternal question – what songs would have you chosen for E?
