(I've tried patience)

In another life/Your face might have been perfect

DeadJournal has been down, which is sort of a shame, as today is not going terribly well, and the thing that has just pushed me over into tears is so sodding ridiculous that there's no other place I could possibly post about it.

Oh, well. Today I am sorting music, because it is a calming and brilliant thing to do, and has things like totally awesome covers of 'Pocket Calculator' by Kraftwerk, and a mashup of 'Sexual Healing' with the Clockwork Orange theme music.

Sigh. Memory's a funny thing, isn't it? Remind me I need to make a post about that at some point, actually, I've been doing a lot of thinking about memory in the last couple of weeks. Mine doesn't work like everyone else's! These and other revelations. Anyway, music, and CSI, and sleep. All of these things will help.

Other musical high points of the day :

* Madonna as covered instrumentally by a Mariachi band
* Realising that the only versions of 'Born To Be Wild' I own are an instrumental moog cover that sounds like mice on tricycles, and the one by Ozzy Osbourne with Miss Piggy.
* Lily Allen vs. Blur. Trust me.
* The Brian Setzer Orchestra covering 'Everybody Wants To Be A Cat'. I think this is going in with 'Half Fling' on my list of Songs It Is Impossible To Stay Depressed Listening To.
* A full-length version, finally, of my favourite mashup of all time, the Björk vs The Cure one that makes my hair stand on end no matter now many times I listen to it.
* And, and I realise what I'm admitting to here, mp3 files of the songs from a tape my mum bought me when I was too young to know any better, called Celtic Romance. Yeah, there's birdsong. Oh yes. And streams. But I loved it, and I never pretended to have any credibility :)
