  1. I love music and there are so many potential songs to choose from; the hard bit was narrowing it down to a band or even a song. Here's the (long) short list:
    Living Colour - Cult of Personality; Love Rears Its Ugly Head; Nothingness
    U2 - Where the Streets Have No Name; Like A Song; Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own; All I Want Is You; Desire
    but it was my first gut reaction after reading this post that nailed it for me.
    The Church - Unguarded Moment
    Classic Australian pub rock

  2. Unguarded Moment, huh? Haven't heard that one yet, so thanks for including a link. :)


  3. Funny!
    No Excuses by Alice in Chains? Pray for a Miracle by the Sleeze Beez? Limelight by Rush? One song might be difficult...

  4. I noticed that Katy Perry was nowhere on your list of possibilities. For shame!

    And goodness, 81%? The literary agent in me squirms at that number. ALL THOSE QUERIES.
