Wednesday Word—Influence

Yep, those are all records behind me.

The Lone Star Cats, Travis, Crockett and Maurice, have presented ME with the Most Influential Blogger Award. Being the Influencer that I am (see badge on my sidebar), I’m not surprised that I’m receiving this award for the 3rd time. This time the rules are different. Being a DJ, I think I like this set of rules best. Many thanks to the Lone Star Cats, who have a very tasty blog. If you haven’t visited yet, check them out and have a drink on me.

So all I have to do is post my favorite song. In this condo, we have all genres of music—folk, country, classic rock, alternative, punk, even classical. To make this more fun—not to mention more work for TW—I’ve decided to post all our fave songs. Let’s start with Pop cos he actually has a favorite song of all time. This would be it. It’s been his favorite song since it first came out in 1967.


TW is, as usual, a tougher nut to crack. She has a different favorite song every day. There’s “Jailhouse Rock” from before she was born as well as songs that changed her life such as Patti Smith’s Horses album and R.E.M.’s “Radio Free Europe” or songs by her friends Winter Hours “Hyacinth Girl” and "Island of Jewels." However, being a Jersey Girl, she had to finally pick this one.


Now we come to MY favorite song. This ghetto kitteh gonna go back to my roots and pick the first rap song ever! I can’t believe TW actually has the record cos I didn’t think she was that hip. It’s kinda sad that this song is still relevant.


Hope you’ve enjoyed our music. I’m gonna pass this award to:

Pricilla at The Maaaaa of Pricilla cos I often wonder what music goats listen to in the barn and out in the fields.

Truffle at Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries & Meows. I know they like country music but I gotta know what kind of country music. We kinda partial to cowpunk.

Katie & Waffles in the Glogirly townhouse. I’ve seen Waffles dance but what makes the townhouse rock?

The Superman logo inspired another song. Click on the caption to hear it.

I am Supercat. Click to hear song.

What? Were you expecting Laurie Anderson?

Why thank you CK. I am a Broadway girl but I have a soft spot for Thunder Road being a Jersey Girl myself.

As for Pricilla, well I guess we will have to wait and see.

Ah, Whiter Shade of Pale...such a fantastic (in every sense of the word) song. Takes the Human back . . . Here's something embarrassing: Every time there's a story on the news about that Nigerian (?) terrorist group Boko Haram, she can't help but think for a minute they're talking about Procol Harum.

Clooney said...

Awesome post, CK! My Human loves "Whiter Shade of Pale"...and I dig your Supercat song.

Summer at sparklecat.com said...

I dread to think what my human's favorite song is! My name is Summer Samba, after the song, but when she was bringing me home, she was playing music from the Sex Pistols, Adam Ant and the Foo Fighters! I don't think she is teachable in this area.

Lone Star Cats said...

Pawsome choices!

Austin Towers said...

Out of those, Procol Harum is the winner in this casa. Thank you very much CK, you've sent the Staff back into the mists of time on YouTube!!!

Concats on your award, dear CK... our Mom Loves Whiter Shade of Pale too! She used to has the 45... whatever that means.

Purr,
Lil Bear.

Katie and Glogirly said...

COOL, CK!!! Thanks so much for the award!!! We've got a lot of different styles of music here in the Townhouse....we'll have to take votes on the faves!

...I'm afraid that Waffles has a tendency to make his OWN music. At about midnight. When the world is trying to sleep.

We loved getting a glimpse at all of your favorites. ...and hey, the next time TW complains about how much room another cat tree would take up, how about you just bring her over to that closet?

; ) Katie

I suddenly feel old. Love Procol Harem. A true classic. I meet the producer 100 years ago.

Kitties Blue said...

Very eclectic taste in music at your house C.K. We thought our pawrents had a lot of LPs, but you put them to shame. Our mom has several favorite songs too. The one she posted for this award was Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
