Because I love you so much, my friends, I have decided that discretion is the better part of valor. I am unwilling to inflict another post on you such as the one below. A big shout-out to my homies Heather and Gina, for taking pity on a poor girl with rather painfully obvious writer's block.
I will do two things, one is to post what I would consider for myself the last resort of blogging. Ten random songs from my iPod shuffle. I am going to commence turning it on, and will list the songs in their complete and unchanged order, no matter how embarassing the title or artist. Can you just feel the anticipation? I can.
Although, keep in mind that this iPod shuffle is supposed to have upbeat, fast music to keep me grooving while I fold the laundry and such, so there will be no slow or classical music. I simply cannot afford to buy a whole bunch of songs, so my playlist is rather limited. And even though I am branded a craven thief by eb, I refuse to download songs I didn't pay for.
1. Speed Your Love to Me- Simple Minds
A great, often overlooked band.
2. The Light in Your Eyes- Sheryl Crow
A light, fluffy, inoffensive song. So sue me. At times I just need a break from my incredible hipness, and this song fits the bill.
3. Hit- The Sugarcubes
A rather special song for Hubba-hubba and me.
4. Talk Talk- Talk Talk
Again, another wonderful 80's band who even No Doubt thought was good enough to cover. And I think this song is even better than that one.
5. Jack the Ripper- Morrissey
I like this song, but I really got it for Hubba-hubba.
6. INXS- The One Thing
The real INXS kicked ass.
7. Cities in Dust- Siouxsie and the Banshees
Yeah, so I'm stuck in the 80's. Again, sue me.
8. Take Me Out- Franz Ferdinand
I don't know what exactly about this song I like so much, but I just do. I think I tend to gravitate toward songs that change tempo and such, and this one delivers. It has a great guitar riff besides.
9. The End of the World- U2
One of the greatest bands. Ever.
10. Beastie Boys- Sabotage
Sometimes you just need a bit of a Beastie fix. Nice old school rap for me.
Because I couldn't resist putting up the next one:
11. There's Something Going On- Frida
Now if you are my age, and this song does not take you back to those heady high school dance days, then I can be of no further help to you.
Just know that I am such a geek that I listened to all of the songs instead of just skipping to the next.
In honor of Monty Python coming back to PBS (if only for a brief time):
And now, for something completely different.
As seen at much more notable blogs than my own, a plea to my readers. I'm going to jump on this bandwagon before it gets passe.
Is there any topic that you would like me to write about that I haven't yet?
I'm up for just about anything. C'mon, whaddya got? Don't you want to save yourselves from more posts such as the one below?
