Music Meme

So, I’ve been tagged by Carole to do this music meme thing that’s been taking over the blogosphere. I always feel flattered to be asked so I’m definitely in ;o)

List seven songs you are into right now.
No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re
any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these
instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven
other people to see what they’re listening to.

Song #1 – Closing Time – Semisonic

Closing time

Open all the doors and let you out into the world

Closing time

Turn all of the lights on over every boy and every girl

Closing time

One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer

Closing time

You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

I know who I want to take me home

Closing time

Time for you to go out to the places you will be from

Closing time

This room won’t be open till your brothers or your sisters come

So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits

I hope you have found a friend

Closing time

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end

When I was dating the troll, this is the song that his band played at the end of every gig. What once was the sign I’d be able to go home soon (after he was done getting phone numbers from groupies) became Roger and my ‘going home’ song :o)

Song #2 – Sheep go to Heaven – Cake

Now, I just want to play on my panpipes,
I just want to drink me some wine,
As soon as you're born, you start dying,
So you might as well have a good time, 
Sheep go to Heaven,
Goats go to Hell,
Sheep go to Heaven,
Goats go to Hell, 
Just 'cuz it makes me giggle ;o)

Song #3 – My Humps – Black Eyed Peas

They say I’m really sexy,

The boys they wanna sex me.

They always standing next to me,

Always dancing next to me,

Tryin’ a feel my hump, hump.

Lookin’ at my lump, lump.

U can look but you can’t touch it,

If you touch it I’ma start some drama,

You don’t want no drama,

No, no drama, no, no, no, no drama

Another one that just cracks me up *laughing*

Song #4 – When You Say Nothing At All – Alison Krause

It’s amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I can never explain
What I hear when you don’t say a thing

This is ‘Our Song’ :o)

Song #5 – Scenes from an Italian Restaurant – Billy Joel

I remember those days hanging out
At the village green
Engineer boots, leather jackets
And tight blue jeans
Drop a dime in the box play the
Song about New Orleans
Cold beer, hot lights
My sweet romantic teenage nights

Alison Krause is our ‘official song’ however, if this song happens to come on Roger will stop everything and dance with me :o) (go ahead, all together now, “aaaawwwwww” ;o) )

Song #6 – Satisfaction – The Rolling Stones

I can’t get no satisfaction,
I can’t get no satisfaction.
’cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
I can’t get no, I can’t get no.

One of the few things I enjoyed about the damned Superbowl. I just found out that I didn’t TiVo the entire episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Because of the damned Superbowl. I got half of it – up to the moment where Bailey’s husband is getting operated on and they put out the code black. WTF. If anybody out there has this episode on their TiVo in its entirety and is willing to copy it and send it to me not only will I be forever in your debt but I will pay for the tape/DVD, the postage AND GIVE YOU YARN. I am not joking. I do not joke about either Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. McDreamy or yarn.*

Song #7 – I am a Man of Constant Sorrow recorded by…well, by alot of people but I like the version sung by The Soggy Bottom Boys

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised
(The place where he was born and raised)

Not only one of the best movies of all time, but also one of the best soundtracks of all time. Anything that can get my daughter to listen to something other than Top 20 makes me a happy woman.

Now I’m supposed to tag people….I’m not so good with the tagging. Okay here goes, hopefully they will all be happy to be tagged…



Karen (Mostly Self-Taught Karen)

Karyn (because I love to torture her, muahahaha) (she’s not a knitter, can you believe it? Go try to convert her, I dare you ;o) )


and, last but definitely not least, Julia ;o)

well crap, that’s six. If you haven’t already done this meme and are reading it – tag, you’re it!

Oh, and I promised photos and witty commentary today didn’t I…sorry guys, I learned my lesson last night. No photo blogging after 10pm ;o)

* Don’t all jump on the yarn bandwagon at once, mmmkay? ;op~ I’m officially withdrawing my offer regarding Grey’s Anatomy because Karen lead me to a site that had the episode in its entirety (THANKS KAREN!! Send me your snail mail addy and I’ll put a little somethin’ in the mail to you ;o) ). The link is below in her comment for anyone who is interested but be warned…you may be greeted with a ‘Full Monty’ like I was this morning ;o) (Apparently some people have nothing better to do than to video their flaccid penises (peni?) and put them up on the web for all the world to see – so I ask, who the hell do they think they’re impressing? Do they think this will help them get dates? I think I speak for most women when I say that we truly aren’t interested in Mr. Softee so go on wit choo. Read a book. Or, even better – do your homework. Gah.)
