Listening to...

Inspired by coffeechica's excellent music-related post, I decided to jot down of few of the songs I've been listening to recently. The weather always affects what I'm listening to and SF has been beautiful for the last few days so I've been playing a lot of songs that I associate with sunny days.

Jackson Cannery -- Ben Folds Five, Ben Folds Five
This album and Beck's Odelay remind me of the summer of 1997, just when Vicki and I started dated.

Limelight -- Moving Pictures, Rush
I associate Moving Pictures, Signals and Grace Under Pressure with sunny Saturday mornings of my childhood.

Blame It On Cain -- My Aim is True, Elvis Costello

Jimmy Jazz -- London Calling, The Clash

Thunder and Lightning (Live) -- Life, Thin Lizzy
Another one from my childhood. In general, Thin Lizzy gets lots of play when the sun comes out. This song in particular reminds me of playing Street Fighter at my friend's house.
