Ginger tags me with this meme: "List ten songs that you are currently digging … it doesn’t matter what genre they are from, whether they have words, or even if they’re no good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artists, and the ten songs in your blog. Then tag five other people to see what they’re listening to." Here are five:

Kathleen Edwards, "Back to Me". I've already declared this the Official Hit Single of my summer. A great guitar sound, a hilarious lyric. I like "Twenty Years in State" from the same album, too.

Beausoleil, "Zydeco Gris Gris". The version that opens "The Big Easy" is different from this one, but both are good. There are aspects of Southern culture that I really like-- the food, the music, the literature. I hate the rest of it, though. I played this on our way to A's HS reunion last night, thinking it might help to psych her up. I think it did, somewhat.

Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, "Crocodile Man". More terrific guitar, and a snazzy lyric about being a grifter. "Thanksgiving dinner at the Top Hat Lounge"-- how cool is that?

The New Pornographers, "The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism". EGA tipped me to this band, who do it all right.

The Beautiful South, "Rotterdam (Or Anywhere)". This just slays me.

Tagging people with these things feels like assigning homework-- but if you're reading this, I'd like to see your list.
