I've been working on this playlist for a while. It's for you to listen to while you read my blog. Need to get caught up on a few Lost posts? Sit back. Relax. Press play and let the digital dominate your life, for once. These songs are for you from me or for you about me or mood music for my posts or just songs I love. See annotations below if you are interested. In a perfect world you would be interested and I would play songs I like for you all day and talk about them.
After that you'll hear "The Whole of the Moon" by the Waterboys. I have no idea what it's about but I love it and kind of assume everyone agrees that it is one of the best songs ever. When it comes on I just look around sheepishly thinking "How can we contain ourselves when we hear this wonderful song? Why don't we all just let go and start singing?" It's kind of surprising when I realize that everyone doesn't feel how I feel about it. I'm over selling it now, even. Next you'll hear Prince singing "I Would Die for You." Prince is awesome. How does he manage to pull off sexy? He's 4 feet tall and womanish. And yet. I would die for you--especially when you leave comments.
Then we have my favorite Killers song. I love it. It kind of reminds me of us. Or anything else I love. Because I love it. "Sand and Ice" by Fanfarlo is another song I don't understand. The last few lines, however, seem relevant to blogging: "I'm no worse than the rest but I'm easily impressed. You've seen my file." Because guys--you've totally seen my file.
I've included my favorite Doors song, "Peace Frog." My high school boyfriend told me it's about Jim Morrison's girlfriend getting an abortion and for all I know that's true. So it's not exactly for you or about me or involved with blogging in any way but holla at cha' Jim Morrison, it rules. Don't think about it too much. It's what I want you to listen to while you read this. Just do it.
The Julian Casablancas song, "Out of the Blue" just seems fitting for all my posts. Maybe because he sings about how exacting vengeance gives excitement? He gets me, I think. Even though he's a shade crasser than I am. For those of you with questions about my religion, I give you "Goody Two Shoes." It's all you need to know about Mormons. Just kidding. Or am I?
"Special Brew" is another song dedicated to you. Listen. It's a special message from me to you. Then you'll hear "Sweet Disposition" by Temper Trap which I like but can not sing along to no matter what. See if you can. It's composed entirely of notes I can't hit. And then of course I end on an obvious note. Obvious is underrated.
