Sing A Song

More meetings today which gave me time to mentally listen again to some of my favorite lyrics.

"You kiss like a Russian."

"You're a store-bought woman."

Are you okay with what you've got?"

"I never felt so wicked as when I willed our love to die."

"My love for you is something warm, like silver drops of laughter."

"Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high."

"So, I'd give this world, just to dream a dream with you."

"We belong together, on the beach, by the sea."

"I saw a friend who doesn't know if I'm his friend just yet."

"I'd walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way script."

"Cause I can't read the number that you just gave me, there's something in my eyes."

"Scuse me while I kiss this guy"

I'd walk away like a movie star who gets burned in a three way script.

One of the most heartbreaking songs ever. When I want to wallow in sadness and despair, it's my number one choice.

I like this post, Snag. It's sweet. I think I'll try this trick next time a client is droning on and on and on and on...

Just because a man
Throws his own mother
Down a flight of stairs
Well does that necessarily imply
That he is insane?

When in fact
I was trying to save her
From her own vicious dog
Which she mistakenly thought
Was cuddly and tame.

"Never Gave Me a Kiss" by Killdozer.

"My life is filled
with squirrels
And ten thousand
beautiful girls"

Sordid Humor. MY all-time favorite WTF? lyric.

I'm listening to this now...

Turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis

This song is my new obsession. I've listened to it now about 56 times in a row.

dear BG, that's so 2005.

speaking of 2005, the opening from here's my favourite song from that year's warped tour:

I took cutie for a ride in my deathcab
She tipped me with a kiss I dropped her off at the meth lab
Before she left she made a dashboard confessional
And spilled her guts in cursive but whats worse is
I could still see her bright eyes like sunny day real estate

i should email you that song so you can play it for blue kid who will probably think it's pretty cool, or pretty lame, depending on which bands he listens to.

Fifty-six times in a row and your family hasn't run screaming from the house?

Snag, I'm like a four year old who can watch the same Barney episode over and over and over.

The Skimmer knows me too well -- he knows it'll never change.

I got on a High Fidelity youtube kick two days ago. I love that movie. And there's a video where they edit a ton of scenes to Mr. Brightside.

That song PLUS John Cusack?


aif, email me the song! I'll let you know what blue kid says.

He went to see Across the Universe last night and has been blaring The Beatles all day.

High Fidelity, now that I can understand watching over and over. In fact, I do.
