I pulled this one from january one:
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.
See if you can pick up on a theme 😉
- Reggie and the Full Effect – Thanks for the Misery
I hope that things work out for you
I hope that he works out for you
I wish that we worked out for you
I know we’d never work for you
- The Get Up Kids – Overdue
Went on a limb for you,
Capsized when I turned twenty two.
Did it burn as bad for you?
No bottle serves to soothe my wounds.
- Fiona Apple – Love Ridden
No, not ‘baby’ anymore – if I need you
I’ll just use your simple name…
I stood too long in the way of the door
And now I’m giving up on you
- The Magnetic Fields – I thought you were my boyfriend (disco
You told me you loved me
I know where and when
Come sunrise, surprise surprise, the joke’s on me again.
- My Chemical Romance – I’m Not Okay (I Promise)
I held you close as we both shook
for the last time
take a good hard look!
- Reggie and the Full Effect – Lord of the Bling Trilogy: The
Two Blings – Ignore the title. Total Best. Song. Ever. That bit where it switches gears. Priceless.
(Yes, this is another breakup song)
There goes my baby
Leaving me today
Don’t know why she’s leaving me
And don’t know what to say
A new frustration on top of all the rest
Funerals are relationships
So where’s my Sundays best
Don’t tell me everything’s okay
It’s not enough that you took it all away
And finally… One of these things is not like the other (OK, how many of you are the appropriate age to remember that Sesame Street song?) … not a breakup song!
- Brendan Benson – You’re Quiet – It’s so sickly sweet. I love it. My kind of guy.
You don’t talk
You’re shut down
And closed off
You’re like me
We’re the same
What’s your name
Been a little bit down on my luck
I think you know where I’m coming from
I need a pick up and I don’t mean truck
I wanna know where to get some
You make me
Wanna ask you
A lot of questions
Get to know you
I like you
You can tell
I’d like to
Know you well
