A Look Into My iPod

I'm not in the mood to write much today, so here's a random meme for your enjoyment.

SONGS ON MY iPOD AT THE MOMENT AND WHY I LIKE THEM.

"You Get What You Give" by the New Radicals. I like this song because my son has the "music in him."

But when the night is falling
And you cannot find the light
If you feel your dream is dying
Hold tight
You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up


"The Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani, my favorite singer of all time. I'm always in the mood for this song. It's my little sweet escape.

"I Just Want You" by Ozzy Osbourne. That's hot.

"Head Over Heels" by the Go-Go's. Memories.

"Cumbersome" by Seven Mary Three. I just like how this song makes me feel. It's a dark song about wanting someone but not meeting up with them somehow in a relationship...feeling awkward and not being able to do anything right and just throwing up your hands. I play this one when I'm in a dark mood. I saw this band in Portland and learned all about the concept of a mosh pit.

"U + Your Hand" by Pink. In sharp contrast to my dark songs, I play this one when I am feeling full of it in a happy way. It makes me feel like I'm up for anything.

"Slipped Away" by Avril Lavigne. For the babies I just couldn't hold onto.

I hope you can hear me
I remember it clearly
The day you slipped away
Was the day I found
It won't be the same


"Ode to My Car" by Adam Sandler. The language in this song is horrendous. With that said, if you are ever having a bad day, go to iTunes and download this song immediately. Try not to laugh. I dare you. One of the most hilarious songs ever written, especially if your bad day started with car trouble. One of my all-time favorites. It's my personal tribute to my 1980 Volkswagen which ran when only when it felt like it and in which a member of the Idaho State hockey team threw up his 7-11 nachos (don't ask).

"Don't Worry Baby" by the Beach Boys. Soothing and calming song about a young relationship where there are no more serious worries than cars and feeling insecure. Ahhhh.

"Juicy" by Better Than Ezra. If you see me bee-bopping in my car sitting in traffic and Erik's lips mouthing the word "juicy," that's what we are listening to. This is, by far, Erik's favorite song from my collection.

"Close to Me" by the Cure. Jim Carrey once said this song made him feel like he was being tickled. And it has the same effect on me. There is a little of everything in this song, and it is a surefire mood lifter.

"Better Days" by the Goo Goo Dolls. Sums up how I feel right now. Sure, life can be incredibly crappy, but there is always hope. Right? Right?

"A.M. Radio" by Everclear. If you grew up in the 1970s, this song is for you. I have a weakness for these guys because they're out of good old Portland, Oregon.

"Sweet Emotion" by Aerosmith. Sexy, sexy, sexy. I love the way this makes me feel. Best at full volume.

That's all for now.
