You Don’t Know Me But You Don’t Like Me

16 Jul

Not really, but I do enjoy it if that counts!

So…today’s post calls for putting my iPod on shuffle and reporting what the first 10 songs are. You are either going to find that I am even more of an old lady than you thought OR way more hood then you ever imaged. It’s all up in the air.

1. This Train Don’t Stop There Anymore- Elton John

This is a newer Elton John song and the video is really great. I have seen him live and would do it again. He’s very gracious and signed everyone’s records in the front rows.  Justin Timberlake is playing a young Elton and does a pretty much awesome job at it!

2. Streets Of Bakersfield- Buck Owens & Dwight Yoakam

Yes, I know all the words to this song and I swear to God my iPod knows when I’ve entered the city limits because it will ALWAYS shuffle to this song when I’m driving into town.

3. Moonglow & The Theme from Picnic- Soundtrack from the Motion Picture Picnic

I remember my Dad getting this CD at Blockbuster Music near East Hills Mall when I was a kid. I think it was one of our first CD’s ever. I didn’t end up watching the movie until I was an adult and I highly suggest it. Moonglow is a great song to listen to if you want to daydream about dancing in a big, poofy dress.

4. Hot In Here- Nelly

OH YEAH SON! This was THE song of my senior prom. They played this jam twice. Senior prom at the K.C. Fairgrounds, thank you God for letting high school only last four years!

5. Save Me- Queen

Amazing Queen song. Freddie looks magnificent.

6. Power of Love- Huey Lewis & The News

Hop in your Delorian and gun it to 88MPH! Next time he’s in town, I’m totally going to see Huey Lewis…me and a bunch of people my parents age. It’s hip to be square!

7. Get Outta My Way- Kylie Minogue

Don’t think for a second that I don’t own super gay disco music. I LOVE Kylie Minogue. I listen to her when I work out, so almost every day. Her music makes me want to own a trampoline so I could blast her jams and jump around like a dork.

8. Fly Me To The Moon- Sinatra

I can’t watch this and NOT think of Phil Hartman doing his perfect Sinatra impression from SNL. If you haven’t seen it, don’t admit it, I will think less of you. Just watch it.

9. Gonorrhea- Lil’ Wayne

Thanks to my friend Neal, I have about 2 days worth of Lil’ Wayne on my iPod. Most people are surprised to learn I enjoy hardcore rap.

10. Symphony No. 5 in C Sharp Minor- Gustav Mahler

Naturally, classical music would come right after some gansta rap. Mahler is great, I think a lot of his music sounds like a soundtrack to a classic film, which is why I really like him.

    Is there a parental advisory on the Lil Wayne selection so that your parents’ won’t listen to save their ears from bleeding? That one sucks. Sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks went “gangsta”. Pee You. All other selections are listenable…even the one with the angry Dr. Seuss lyrics (Nelly. oooo What a super scary name Nelly is. Whoa, Nelly!).
    Many years ago, I rode in one of John DeLorean’s creations. I only hope that the next ride will involve a Flux Capcitor. Great Scott!
