List five songs that you are currently digging – it doesn?t matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they?re not any good, but they must be songs you?re really enjoying right now. Post these instructions and the five songs (with artist) in your blog. Then tag five people to see what they?re listening to.

Okay, this should hopefully be simpler than listing my all time favourite songs.

Five songs I’m currently digging :

Fathers Day – Weddings, Parties Anything.
Given the time of year it’s not surprising this is getting a bit of play but I’ve always loved this bitter sweet tale of a dad separated from his son. The final plaintive ‘I haven’t always been a single man…’ as the song fades gets me every time.

Dance Me To The End Of Love – Leonard Cohen
Nice depressing start to this list. Hmmm. The caf? up the street was playing a ‘Best Of’ when we were then last week so Leonard has been on high rotation of late. Love this song.

The Whole Of The Moon – The Waterboys
I remember I first heard this song on holidays in Melbourne when I was a kid. It was on one of those new fangled FM stations (probably EON FM) that we didn’t yet have in Shepparton and I was blown away – the sound of the ‘comet, blazing it’s trail’ had me hooked and I’d stay up night, listening on my newly purchased ghetto blaster hoping they’d play it just once more. 6 Music have played a live version a couple of times over the past fortnight and I’m hooked all over again.

The Walls Come Tumbling Down – Style Council
This song is just cool. End of argument.

The Same Old Walk – Paul Kelly
I discovered a CD copy of Under The Sun sitting next to the stereo the other day. This was the first Paul Kelly album I heard. I remember Jo, a friend at uni, telling me of this really cool guy called Paul Kelly and he had really great music. I had a tape of the album and this story of lost love still rocks almost 20 years later.
