Guy Fire Ice

I have a cunning plan....

...and that's to pretend that I'm not horribly behind on my meming, and that brendanm720's getting around to this same meme, hasn't triggered me. Nope. Not at all. Just a river, folks, just a river.

Anyhow, that afore-mentioned meme:
1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions


empressvesica gave me the letter "I".

1) I'll Find My Way Home - Jon and Vangelis
One of the songs that I first heard growing up, and stuck with me as being different from the normal range of stuff. Even now, I can find myself able to sing along with it on its infrequent plays over UK airwaves.

2) I Touch Myself - The Divinyls
Goodness me, what could this song possibly be about? Fun, with a good tune.

3) I Want You Back - Mel C
Not a song I think anyone else will ever have heard of. Basically a B side on her first solo release, and never added to any of the albums. Surprisingly good, surprisingly poppy and just fun from a singer underestimated by many for being a Spice Girl.

4) Independant Love Song - Scarlet
"I'm doing it a different way" indeed. A love song that doesn't sound like any other bog-standard pop love songs, but explodes into full orchestral motion at points. Brilliant stuff.

5) In the End - Linkin Park
Dark, fascinating and with an ability to drag you along with it. Love it.
