Post them to your journal with these instructions.

5 songs that start with M, thanks to [personal profile] lurkingcat

Took me a while, mostly due to forgetfulness or being poorly. Then when I did get round to it had to fix all the embeds. Stupid youtube.


Links are to Spotify.

Mr. Blue Sky - ELO

Easy first choice. I was indoctrinated to ELO at an early age as I think it was the only music my parents played in the car. Which probably actually means I heard it once half asleep on a long car journey and fell in love instantly.



Muay Nee Kha - China Dolls

Still have no idea why I like this so much.



Money For Nothing - Dire Straits

I'm an unabashed Dire Straits fan and this is one of my favourites. Certainly the best known. Probably did more for MTV than Buggles did. The statistic of the day was that more copies of the Brothers in Arms CD had been sold in the UK than CD players!



Mad World - Tears for Fears

Sure, I remember this track from first time around, but really know it from Donnie Darko. Gary Jules did a somewhat better "cover of a song you don't know" than Rolf Harris.



Manic Monday - The Bangles

And if any of them got stuck in your head, this is (allegedly) the antidote to songs stuck in your head. It's worked for me so far...
