music competition - win win win!
dear bloggers and readers,
i've decided to run a little competition regarding what type of music i should be playing in my shop! if you come up with the best top 20 list of music (albums and artists) that transports my customers into a beautiful fantasy world, i will reward you with:
2 Home Bakes White Mugs accompanied by a tea towel by skinny laminx, entitled 'waiting,' and a beautiful biscuit tea time bowl by home bakes.
mail this post to your friends and lets see who can come up with the best shop music list!
now, most importantly, my favourite music/influences are: ashlee simpson, miley cyrus, prime circle.....ONLY KIDDING guys!!!!!!!!!!
for real now, here goes (!) My favourites of all time: Lark, David Bowie, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Dave Matthews, Ben Harper, Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, The Beatles, Massive Attack, The Police, Fiona Apple. Kings of Leon, Regina Spektor, Goldfrapp, Department of Eagles, Bat for Lashes, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Shins, The Decemberists, The Doves, Death Cab for Cutie, Joanna Newsom, No Doubt, Madness, Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire, The Knife, Madness, Moldy Peaches, New Young Pony Club, Nick Cave and The Raconteurs.
that will give you a good idea that i'm into indie folk. now if you come up with a list that doesn't feature these artists, don't worry! i want to be introduced to some new stuff that will also lull my customers into a false sense of security that will inevitably result in a temporary loss of sanity and copious spending.
now remember to send you lists, numbered from 1 - 10, with the album and artist, like so:
1. Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars - David Bowie
2. Tidal - Fiona Apple
good luck! this runs until the end of april.
