Today I’m doin a lil groovy music tag thingy from Stephellaneous Stephanie cause I’m so blog-lazy.
- List the first 10 songs that come on shuffle
- Write your favorite lyric (or verse) from each song.
- Tag/link to other bloggers
I’m … modifying. You’re tagged if you like.
The Forgotten People — Theivery Corporation
Um, there are no words. You just hafta shake it. Maybe that’s not a good one.
A Sorta Fairytale — Tori Amos
“Lookin for some Indian blood, Find a little in you, Find a little in me
We may be on this road but we’re just impostors in this country”
Paul Revere — Beastie Boys
“I did it like this, I did it like that, I did with the wiffle ball bat, sooooo — ” Yes, I am still 13. I am 12 when I listen to Pink Floyd and I am 5 when I do the hustle. Your numbers may vary.
Mary Jane’s Last Dance — Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
“Oh my my, Oh Hell yes, Honey put on that party dress
Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come cause I can’t stay long”
It may be a rule that if you’re a girl from Indiana, you are required to love this song, and in the wee hours, you may still question why you didn’t grow up tall on them Indiana nights…
Always Alright — Alabama Shakes
“Pass me the whiskey, pass me the gin, pass me whatever there’s drank left in”
River Lea — Adele
Haha, that’s not available yet. You can listen to its intro ad nauseam or read the lyrics, but I guess otherwise, y’all hafta wait. Sorry. Not a good one.
Dragula — Rob Zombie
“Knuckle crack the bone, twenty-one to win” but you know you gotta “Dig through the ditches and burn through the witches” too
The Hills — The Weeknd
I really need to get this cd. Every time I ask the girls “What is that? I like it,” they say, “The Weeknd.”
“I only love it when you touch me, not feel me
When I’m fucked up, that’s the real me
When I’m fucked up, that’s the real me, yeah”
Downtown — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Eric Nally, Mellie Mel, Kool Moe Dee & Grandmaster Caz)
I like to bellow out Eric Nally’s downtown part, personally, but “1988 Mariah Carey hair, errrywhere, Mom jeans on her derriere” is also good
Talula — Tori Amos
Sassy and I usually rock out to this on our own, because the others don’t seem to enjoy it. Strangely, this is a song I loved even more than carrots while I carried Sassy. I don’t know if Sassy knows that…
“I got Big Bird on a fishing line
With a bit of a shout a bit of shout a bit of an angry snout
He’s my favourite hooker of the whole bunch
And I know about his only bride
And how the Russians died on the ice
I got my rape hat on Honey but I always could accessorize
And I never cared too much for the money
I know right now, Honey, that it’s in God’s hands
Oh but I don’t know who the father is”
Hypnotize — The Notorious B.I.G.
I’m sorry, does your family not sing the whole thing in the minivan like you’re the official white emissaries of Biggie? Neither does The Mister. “That Brooklyn bullshit, we on it”
Copperhead Road — Steve Earle
Ditto this. Epic tales of apples not fallin far from the tree don’t get any better than this. And um, there are bagpipes, k? There is no part of this that doesn’t sound like home.
“Now Daddy ran the whiskey in a big black Dodge
Bought it at an auction at the Mason’s Lodge
Johnson County Sheriff painted on the side”
You must understand, I buy the music, so I buy what I like, but what mostly gets played is a sorta democratic process, and this would be our “Most Frequently Played” list on my phone, because I am the DJ. I take requests.
Request your favorite song and I’ll let you know if I own it.
