Musical Post the Second

You and me, we have an opportunity
And we could make it something really cool
But you, you think I’m not that kind of girl
I’m here to tell you baby, I know how to rock your world

Blast from the past.  This song was playing when I was buying dinner, and these words struck me.  Remind me to tell you the funny side one day.

Anyone else remember Madison Avenue?  They kind of rocked.

ETA: I just hit bingo with my six.  It’s only 11am.  I hate this station.

Wow.  I swear to a deity I don’t even believe in, if I have to listen to this radio station every fucking day for much longer I will explode.  The woman next to me at work has her radio on this station.  They play the same six songs over and over again all day.  And they’re crap songs.  Seriously.

Don’t click the link at the bottom of the page.  Trust me.  But I heard that song FOUR times today.  FOUR TIMES.  I hate it so much.  I end up with so much hostility and anger everytime it comes on the radio.  Seriously, do not click it.

Here’s the list of most songs they play on repeat all fucking day.  If you’re game, try looking them up on youtube.  And if you think they’re not annoying, look six of them up at random (must include the one at the bottom of the post!) and just play those six all day.  ALL DAY.  EVERY FUCKING DAY.

My random 5 (plus the one at the bottom) would be ‘you found me’ by the fray (a song I used to love mind you), My Delirium by LadyHawke, Halo by Beyonce (although sometimes they try to change to a different one of her songs, but THEY ALL SOUND THE SAME), any of the fallout boy songs, and the Britney Spears song.  Go listen to that list on repeat.  Then try to collect money off people all day.

ARGH!  I’m seriously losing it.

Annoying Song

I’m feeling a bit drained at the moment, so in lieu of individual, meaningful posts that no one’s going to read or care about, I’m just going to quote some lyrics I’ve been liking recently.  Will expand if needed.

Seein’ Red by Unwritten Law

I’m seein red
Don’t think you’ll have to see my face again


And swallow your pride and drown
When there’s no place left to go
Maybe thats when you will know

You’re so vain, you probably think this post is about you
You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this post is about you
Don’t you? Don’t you?

Cary Brothers – Honestly

July 17, 2008 at 12:58 pm (music) ()

Think I’m goin home
I think I’m gettin lost for a while

So I’ll file away all my dreams
Though I still believe in everything

Honestly over you
Honestly over you
One lie short of true
Honestly over you

Lookin for some hope
Polished off the whiskey tonight
You turned a man to stone
For lookin at you straight in the eyes

Full lyrics, without the omitted parts, found here.

This song breaks my heart when I listen to it. In some twisted way, it also comforts me. You have to hear it to fully appreciate it, so if you can, find a way to listen to it.

My Name Is Luca

July 6, 2008 at 11:07 am (abuse, feminism, music) (, )

This song came on the radio the other day. I think it’s the first time I’ve heard it since my ‘awakening’, and it chilled me. I used to love this song, now I’m not so sure I could listen to it anymore.

Most songs I’ve stopped listening to are because they’re deeply misogynist. This one just chills me.

“And they only hit until you cry
After that you don’t ask why
You just don’t argue anymore”

Knowing that stuff like this isn’t creative license is why I’m bitter.
