A Bit of Me(Me): It's All About Music... AGAIN!

Can a person post too much about music? I think not, just like we can't post too much about books, right?

So I find myself letting you in on some more of my music favorites because today, the question over at There's a Book for the A Bit of Me(Me) is:

What music gets your toes tapping?

I'm going to take this very very literally, and give you some examples of music that I seriously can't sit still to.

First up is DJ Tiesto... he plays a computer, yes? And his concerts look like they would rival Muse's in the way of visual stimulation. This song is his remake of He's a Pirate from The Pirates of the Carribbean soundtrack. My favorite part comes at about 2:08 minutes in:

I Just Can't Get Enough!!! If you've been reading lately you know that I'm in the middle of rediscovering Depeche Mode. I can't believe I didn't love them more in the 80's.

Bad Romance, Glee Version... come on, you know you want to get up and dance to this!

Of course, there must be some Muse in my toe tapping (or should we say head banging) post. This one you'll have to wait for a bit till the toe tapping part starts, but that's okay, because you'll be treated to Chris's awesome harmonica intro! Love. This. Song.

Of course, once again, I could go on and on, so I'll just stop here. Let me know if you listened to any of these songs and found yourself literally tapping your toe and wanting to dance.

Happy Saturday to you all. Now I'm going to go pretend it's last week, and read all day! :)


  1. Yes, there is a lot of music that can inspire us, and it's fun to be able to dig deep down and recall the artists that really make us sing and dance.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Music can lift us out of any dump!

  3. I was so going to put Depeche Mode's Sea of Sin on my list but was afraid that I would offend someone! Yeah for Depeche, best band ever.

  4. Great, now I have a terrible need to listen to 'People are People' & 'Personal Jesus!'

  5. I can't decide if I should tap my toes to Depeche Mode first of Muse! Great choices!

  6. Okay, so I totally wouldn't have taken you for a DJ Tiesto fan, but I'm so glad to hear it! Reminds me of my good old days when my hubby and I would go dancing until all hours of the morning. Of course quite a few years before there were kiddos around, but still such a great time! Ahhh...the good old days! At least we can still listen to the music even if we can't go "clubbing". :o)

    Great choices, I can see that we would get along great! Love Depeche Mode and Muse, plus all the remakes on Glee have been fantastic. Love your choices!

  7. Wow, you are after my own heart! Tiesto, Depeche Mode, Lady Gaga, Muse! All awesome choices, we might be music soul mates :)

    I picked some Erasure for mine, but it was hard to choose something! Here it is:

  8. Laurel-Rain and Vicki: Agreed agreed!

    Gwen: I hope I didn't offend anyone! Yes, I'm really loving them right now.

    Lyn: Love both of those songs too! And they can get so "stuck in your head!"

    Lisa: I'm glad I got you tapping!

    Danielle: I wouldn't have guessed you were a DJ Tiesto fan either! Yes, I love him, though I've never experienced the whole clubbing thing you talk about. Sounds like some good memories though.

    Crystal: I love Erasure too. All that stuff brings back fun school memories for me.

  9. Ahhh, DM. Love, love, love them. Just Can't Get Enough, People Are People, Somebody - always good listening :)
