30 day song challenge, day 13

30 day song challenge, day 13
A song that is a guilty pleasure
Don Spencer, Bob the Kelpie

I love this song! :) I also love sheepie dogs.

So it’s been about a month since my last song challenge post, but who’s counting…

30 day song challenge, day 12

30 day song challenge, day 12
A song from a band you hate

I can hate lots of bands, but I especially hate Led Zepplin. Sorry, universe. It’s just the way it has to be. This song is particularly atrocious, but probably not even their worst.

30 day song challenge, day 11
A song from your favorite band
Mr. Bungle, Super Mario Brothers Medley

There’s that word “favorite” again. Ugh. Tough call. I’ll use this, Super Mario theme from Mr. Bungle, live at Club Lingerie in 1991. Mike Patton seems a bit drunk.

A song that makes you fall asleep
Pink Floyd, Comfortably Numb

Anything by Pink Floyd makes me sleepy. That’s not to say I don’t like them – I love them, they’re so awesome – but anything after Syd Barrett left the band just gets me all drowsy.

A song that you can dance to
Smile.dk, Coconut

That is to say, a song you try to dance to, but just end up hopping about, gesticulating like a lunatic.

30 day song challenge, day 08

30 day song challenge, day 08
A song that you know all the words to
Faith No More, Falling to Pieces

I have been unable to memorize the words to any song since 1993. There is one song that I know perfectly: 1990s SNL, Steve Martin’s “Tonight Song”, but it’s not available online and it would take me too long to get the DVD. So here’s more Mikey. I think I know all the words to FNM’s The Real Thing album. Quintessential 90s video in glorious funk-colors.

30 day song challenge, day 07

30 day song challenge, day 07
A song that reminds you of a certain event
James, Laid

This song reminds me of a bachelorette party my friends and I put together. I’m not sure if we listened to this at the time or if it just became relevant later. Kitchen knives and skeeewers!!!

30 day song challenge, day 06

30 day song challenge, day 06
A song that reminds you of somewhere
They Might Be Giants, New York City

I realize this is a cop out for day 5 (and it’s also been a week since my last Challenge post, also with a TMBG song), but this is in the NYC mix Shawn put together for me. I have to admit, NYC is a very friendly place so I’m glad things all worked out in its favor.

I love NYC! Except for the last time, when I ran out of money and nearly missed my flight because of the Veteran’s Day parade.

30 day song challenge, day 05
A song that reminds you of someone
They Might Be Giants, Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

This song, reminds me of my ferret Skitzo. We used to “dance” together to this song all the time, I’m convinced she loved it. Here’s the Tiny Toons version, with sound effects.

30 day song challenge, day 04
A song that makes you sad
Bruce Evans, The Cat Carol (Performed by Meryn Cadell)

This song is so sad that I cannot listen to it ever again. I am not joking. Do NOT listen to this song. I can’t even think about this song without bawling.
