Surprised I Made it This Far? I am!


A Song That You Know All The Words to…

Well there are so many of these, I generally learn all the words to every song I like pretty quickly…. Lyrics just come naturally to me (I used to write songs! but that’s for a future post…). I’m not really sure what I should pick… I guess it should be just another song I like enough to sing along to…. That narrows it down to just about EVERYTHING

Except Barbra Streisand, but it’s not exactly hard to get the lyrics to that song!! What’s it again? Barbra Streisand? Oh and Oooohh NEVER forget the OOOOOOH!!!

Anyway my current favourite song!!!!

Warning for those with photosensitive epilepsy… flashing lights… Oh god I love it!!

All of the Lights – Kanye West

Day 7 – A Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event…

Low – Flo Rida

Heres the story….

A long long time ago… I was picking a friend up from work. Myself and her sister went and picked her up in my car and we decided do get something in the McDonalds drive thru. I’m gonna say it was Ice-cream because I have a feeling it was summer! Anyway my friend (lets call her Horny) Horny was in a really bad mood and didn’t want to do anything. She just wanted to go home and shower and wallow in self pity….


Her sister (Lets call her Hyperbole, see if you can guess why) however had different plans and launched into an extremely dramatic story which I can’t remember but the basic premise was that their cousin (We’ll call her McCormal) was an absolute “EMOTIONAL WRECK” and Myself, Horny and Hyperbole NEEDED to go and visit her IMMEDIATELY…

So the conversation went on and we discussed other irrelevant things as we sat in the McDonalds car park listening to the radio, eating our Ice-cream/Chicken Nuggets/whatever it was we were eating. Horny continued to moan and express her negative mental attitude while Hyperbole and Myself talked about the happier things in life sunshine lollipops rainbows etc. we sang along to the radio and had an all round good time.


SIDENOTE:

Just to add a bit of background to the story the above song was Myself and Horny’s favourite song at the time.

1. I sometimes have this problem where if someone is talking to me or I’m talking and there’s music that I like on in the background my attention automatically focuses on the music 100% and I can’t hear what the person in front of me is saying or I completely lose my train of thought…

2. McCormal lives outside the county so it’s a bit of a drive and I was only driving I’d say about 4 months so I needed a more experienced driver with me by law (for the most part I didn’t have one when I was just driving locally). Horny was that necessary experienced driver so she was essential to Hyperboles plan, we couldn’t just drop Horny home and then just go by ourselves.

Also I had a bit of a thing for McCormal at this time which I think was factored into Hyperbole’s plans, she knew I’d have enough sympathy for McCormal to drive accross the country* for her!!

So the conversation whent on we finished whatever it was we were eating and Hyperbole kept on at Horny begging and begging her to come to McCormal’s telling her that she was ruining everyones day and that it was her RESPONSIBILITY to make sure all parties involved were happy (or something along those lines). At this point it occurred to me that I really hadn’t been asked whether I wanted to go and it was just expected of me! So I began

“Hang on… Did you think just because you said McCormal was an APPLE!…” the radio continued… bottom jeans, boots with the fur…

You may have gathered I intended to say an emotional wreck and continue to make my point that I wasn’t about to drop everything and rush over there for her (I was). Myself and Hyperbole broke into hyserical laughter for about 10 minutes! Horny found it very hard to stay in a bad mood after that.

We went to see McCormal (She was as happy as Larry, nowhere close to an emotional wreck. I think she had just mentioned to Hyperbole that she had nothing to do and wouldn’t mind some company).

We had a really fun time for the rest of the day! We still laugh about that story to this day (Horny definitely sees the funny side now…)



Hyperbole is moving to Australia next week for a YEAR!! this post is dedicated to her!! I wish her well and I hope she never forgets about this story!!! Have an AMAZING exaggerated time!! See your soon!

*I did not have to drive accross the country, but exaggeration is key to the story!

Day 5: A Song That Reminds You of Someone…

25 Feb

So so many to choose from so little time….

9 to 5 – Dolly Parton

This reminds me of a friend who, a couple of years ago, didn’t believe me that the verse with “you’re in the same boat as a lot your friends, waiting for the day your ship’ll come in” existed!! from then on it kinda became “our song”

Anyway I’m off out to  enjoy my friday night… maybe I’ll do something blogworthy and then you’ll have two post in one day. That might just blow your minds!!!

30 Day Song challenge: Day 4

A Song That Makes You Sad!!


I really can’t think of many songs that make me sad right now… Even sad songs I listen to don’t necessarily make me sad. I appreciate the sadness and all but it doesn’t send me spiraling into the depths of depression….

Hmmm…. It’s tough there’s plenty of sad songs I like I suppose I’ll just pick one of those…………..

Ok I’ve thought about it… and there’s three songs* I associate with sadness and loss and I wouldn’t be insulted (actually I reckon I’d feel fairly big headed) if any of them were played at my funeral!!

Wishing you were somehow here again – The Phantom of the Opera


Hear You me (May Angels Lead you in)- Jimmy Eat World

With this song it’s the line “A song for a heart so big, God wouldn’t let it live” Absolutely gets me every time, a giant surge of emotion. I love this song for that reason.


I’m yours – The Script

In this one, the song itself isn’t a sad one but the line “The day news came my best friend died, my knees went weak and you saw me cry” the first time I heard it I have to be honest I actually shed several tears (So so manly I know!!) because I was so into the song I imagined my best friend dying I NEVER want to think about that ever again! It’s my biggest fear!!

Anyway there are my songs for the day… talk to y’all tomorrow!! 😀

*THREE SONGS… I’m getting out of control! Seriously!

30 Day song challenge… Day 3… (I almost forgot!!)

23 Feb

A Song That Makes You Happy!


I have several of these but I’m gonna pick two*… The first one never fails to get me out of a bad mood in work, and I work in retail so I’m mostly in a bad mood!! I was in a really bad/low mood the other day and I just decided to listen to it on my iPhone to attempt to drag myself into somewhat of a humour where I would be able to deal with other human beings… It worked to a point… I also used my phone to create a genius playlist using the song. I got a fairly cheery playlist out of it. That music and the company of my best friend who pretty much puts up with me through any mood I’m in (I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you… more please! ) got me into a better place for the rest of the day and week so far I think….

The song is…. wait for it… you’re probably gonna hate it…. but you can’t deny it’s upbeat message!… here goes….

I’ll Be OK – McFly


The other song is one that was introduced to be by a friend a couple of years ago and It reminds me of some good times…

It also makes me excited for summer… and that’s about it…

Another Sunny Day – Belle and Sebastian


* I know I shouldn’t be picking two but I just couldn’t choose one and really you’re lucky that I’ve only chosen two because there are SO MANY that I could’ve picked!!

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 02

22 Feb

My least favourite song…

Hmmm…. Similar to the fact I have trouble picking favourites, I have trouble picking my least favourite…

I’ve been thinking about this all day and there is a recent song that’s standing out for me…


Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand

Link

The song just kinda annoys me, I reckon it’s just the repetitive nature of it…

I have been known to dance to it and enjoy it while drunk but that’s a separate issue!!

Now after watching the video I actually like it significantly more… The video is not as repetitive and is generally just less like the single/radio version

But yeah it’s still my least favourite at the moment!!
