I Was Tagged And Didn't Even Get A Reach Around!!

Wow; I think I've had a ton of music related entries this month and last. Music is a huge part of my life, no denying. I always have music somewhere (except when I study). I can't drive with the radio off; I can't blog without music; I can't draw without music. It permeates my very being. Those of you who know me pretty well know that this is due to my awesome mother who ALWAYS had music in our home.

As for the pic, go to this website. This was what hapened with "Crash Into Me" by the beloved DMB. It's done by some sort of computer program that follows the notes with a line and then bends them according to the song. It's pretty cool Now, we're on to a music topic again! The always cute and effervescent Jen tagged me.

Instructions: Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle. Say the following questions aloud, and press play. Use the song title as the answer to the question. NO CHEATING.

How does the world see you? : "911 Is A Joke" - Public Enemy (Telling lyric: " ... They don't care 'cause they stay paid anyways ... ". This is a call to revolution ... not that I would favor that sort of thing!)

Will I have a happy life? : "Nasim Joon" - O.A.R. (Telling lyric: "... Set to ride this here rail 'til the end")

What do my friends really think of me? : "La Tierra Del Olvido" - Carlos Vives (Wish my Spanish was better and then I could give you some lyrics)

What do people secretly think of me? : "Wait 'til You See Him" - Ella Fitzgerald (I'm not sure if this is a good sign or not; but Ella is fucking awesome)

How can I be happy? : "Galaxia" - Gipsy Kings (Well, I do love the guitar and I love these guys; maybe concentrating on playing the guitar will make me happy?!?!? They're coming this summer so I need to snag tickets for this show)

What should I do with my life? : "I'll Drink To That" - The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones (Telling lyric: "... The place is packed / I needed that / The bottles cracked / I'm glad for that / A good nights rest? / Forget about that / I feel alive in this dive so I'll drink to that")

Will I ever have children? : "Como Duelo En Los Labios" - Mana (If I play some music like this with the ladies, I just might .... then again ... probably not!)

What is some good advice for me? : "Simmer Down" - The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones (I think the shuffle function on my MP3 player isn't that great hence 2 Bosstones' songs so close together; actually this good advice for everyone .... except Cheri Oteri doing that skit on SNL where this was her catchphrase)

How will I be remembered? : "A Message To You Rudy" - The Specials (Telling lyrics: "... Stop your messing around / Time you straightened right out / Better think of your future / Else you'll wind up in jail ..."; what is God telling me?)

What is my signature dancing song? : "Havest Home" - Big Country (Super great song ... yeah, I'm playing air guitar while I listen to this home; I love how this band got this super distorted sound almost like bag pipes from their guitars; LISTEN TO THIS SONG: This was one of the best 80's band that is known only for one song and it is a crime to only know that song)

What do I think my current theme song is? : "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby" - Counting Crows (Deeesguy insisted once that "Holiday In Spain" is more of my theme song; Deeesguy took me to their show at Miami U in Oxford and now I am definitely a fan)

What does everyone else think my current theme song is? : "Cum On Feel The Noize" - Quiet Riot (A guilty pleasure? Sure. Is it cheesy? Sure. But admit it; in the 80's when this first came out, you were banging your head like I was. And in case you are wondering ..... yes, I am playing air guitar along with this one too)

What song will play at my funeral? : "Monkey Man" - Toots & The Maytals w/ No Doubt (When I do pass away, I want something like an Irish wake. You don't have to leave my body out for like a day or two, but I want everyone to hit the pub with an open bar, drink, laugh, and remember me for the good times; this is a fun little ditty that just might perk up the mourners!!)

What type of men/women do you like? : "Crash Into Me" - Dave Matthews Band (Maybe this is fitting considering neither Andrea Corr nor Salma Hayek, Paz Vega, Penelope Cruz, Monica Belluci, Kirsten Dunst nor Scar Jo has publicly acknowledged my love. This is a song about a peeping tom, Telling lyrics: " ... Oh I watch you there / Through the window / And I stare at you / You wear nothing / But you wear it so well ....")

What is my day going to be like? : "La Cienega Just Smiled" - Ryan Adams (Beautiful song; when I returned from my trip to Ireland to visit my friends there, this was playing on the inboard music channel the moment the wheels left the ground; maybe it's a day to remember good friends and great experiences)

Now who am I tagging? Well, I believe Mariemm, Deeesguy (you can just post yours in the comments ... unless you start you own blog like I've been bugging you to do), Andi and well ... EVERYONE who reads this should do it if you haven't already!!!

Hey you visited my blog a while back and I'm not sure I ever responded... Aaaaaaaanyway, I am in the process of moving to Cincinnati (Hyde Park) and need to know some good places to hang out!!!

MsAbcMom said...

I am going to have to do this one. It looks like fun.

If you like music, you should check out this musical website.
After that, click on
Pâte à Son.
Once you are there, you can watch, listen and then play with the pieces and make your own music. It is so cool.

I can play on that site for hours. I LOVE it!

jennifer said...

you like the kind of women who "crash into" you, huh? that's almost prophetic!!!

i think that you should start hanging out at grocery stores. and strategically position yourself in a narrow aisle where there is a lot of traffic.

you never know who might crash into you there...

JHD said...

Already did this one, I found it on DCNats wonderful blog. Nice touch though with adding pertinent lyrics.

A. Estella Sassypants said...

Alrighty! I'll get on it in a few.

Chelle said...

This was hilarious. Laughed myself silly a few times.


DCNats said...

yeah I have to agree with jhd- um not only is my blog wonderful, but I also loved that you added pertinent lyrics... I wish I had thought of it!??!?!

Cincysundevil said...

I'll shoot you an email. Maybe you can get in touch with my old roommate. He's pretty in touch with where people are going in Cincy these days.

Cincysundevil said...

It sounds like you'll have to be part of the music blog.

Cincysundevil said...

The only girls that would crash into me are those with bad eyesight!

Cincysundevil said...

So I see on your blog. I notice I didn't get a "wonderful" to describe my blog .. .ahem.

Cincysundevil said...

YOu're the best. I love your profile pic to this day. Quite alluring.

Cincysundevil said...

Glad you enjoyed it! I read the songs that came up; alot like my taste in music!

Cincysundevil said...

Your blog is wonderful. I only added the lyrics to try to make sense of the songs that came up. Too bad my Spanish is horrible because Carlos Vives might have had some profoudn lyrics for me.

JHD said...

Sorry Devil, I thought it goes without saying. Why else would I continue to leave comments on here?

But since your... um, ego... needs stroking, you're fabulous. Feel better now?

Cincysundevil said...

That's not all that needs stroking! ... OK, that was way too easy.
