List the first 10 songs and why you like the song or the reason it's on your system
Do it only if you want feel like it.

1. Special by Garbage
I remember the video of the dogfight in these weird little 1 seater aircraft. Upbeat song and the first one of theirs I heard.

2. Obesession by Animotion
Star Trek episode with that cloud creature that feeds on the iron in human blood. Nope, nothing to do with the song but I always think ST when I hear it. It's got a good beat!
"Spock! You're alive.!" ...copper-based Vulcan blood...

3. Can't Not by Alanis Morissette
Two negatives make a positive but two positives don't make a negative. Yeah, right!
It's a different kind of tune.

4. Ironic by Alanis Morissette
Sometimes this is my life.

5. Connection by Elastica
A good beat that gets me feet tapping or picks me up and gets me movin'!

6. As Heaven is Wide by Garbage
*If flesh could crawl my skin would fall from off my bones and crawl away from here.*
Yes, I do have a strange sense of humor.

7. If Not for You by Olivia Newton-John
A soft voice and a light tune with a nice little storyline.

8. I am a Rock by Simon & Garfunkel
With my Great Stone Face (yes, there's a story there), I AM a Rock! and an Island and almost Mr. Spock! lol (I'm also hallucinating again!)

9. Take My Hand by Dido
Finally, a Dido song. I was getting worried there. *grin* Not one of my most favorites but her songs are filled with some wonderful stories. I can sing to this one when it comes on but not without the music.

10. Stoned by Dido
Go figure. Where's Don't Think of Me, This Land is Mine, Do You Have a Little Time, My Lover's Gone, Isobel, Honestly OK, Hunter, Life For Rent, The Closer You Get, Sand in my Shoes, Me, River Run Me Dry, Worthless, or Flowerstand Man? This is another not exactly favorite Dido song but it has a quick little beat to it.
And here's Honestly OK at #11 *I'm so lonely I don't even want to be with myself anymore*
I should reshuffle and start over! lol

That was a lot less Dido than I thought would come up randomly. I put "Hunter" and "This Land Is Mine" on my Feels Like Thursday mix. :D

I thought so too. You'd think 34 out of 105 songs would give you more than two!

Two of my favorites though I'm still memorizing This Land is Mine so I can sing it whenever instead of only when I hear it!

Is Don't Leave Home part of your Monday Blues mix?
Here's me, trying to be funny again. Guess I can't quit my day job yet, huh? :D

I don't have a Monday Blues album yet, but when I do, I'll be sure to include my favorite Carpenters song.

Calling Occupants from Interplanetary Craft?
Oct. 15th, 2008 10:06 pm (UTC)
Isn't that by David Bowie? :P
Oct. 15th, 2008 10:10 pm (UTC)
Nope. That was a Carpenter's song. One of their last hits, I believe.
