Digging One Out of the Archives

Eh, just so the post about my stinky living room isn’t front and center, here’s an MP3 Shuffle meme from October… New iPod, new tunes.

Opening – “Guys Do It All the Time” (Mindy McCready)
So I had some beers with the girls last night
Guys do it all the time

Wake Up – “Walkaways” (Counting Crows)
And someday I’m gonna stay
but not today

Average Day – “Tainted Love” (Soft Cell)
To make things right
you need someone to hold you tight

First Date – “Baby Can I Hold You” (Tracy Chapman)
But you can say baby, baby can I hold you tonight?

Falling in Love – “The Boy From New York City” (The AdLibs)
Today I hope to make him mine all mine

Fight Scene – “Mr. Jones” (Counting Crows)
And we stare at the beautiful women
She’s looking at you, oh no no she’s lookin’ at me

Break Up Scene – “32 Flavors” (Ani DiFranco)
Squint your eyes and look a bit closer
I’m not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster
I’m 32 flavors and then some

Secret Love – “To Make You Feel My Love” (Billy Joel)
I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I could never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met,
no doubt in my mind where you belong

Life’s Okay – “Hey Jealousy” (GinBlossoms)
The past is gone but something might be found
to take its place

Mental Breakdown – “Closer to Free” (The BoDeans)
Every body wants respect, just a little bit
Everybody needs a chance once in awhile

Deep Thought – “You Keep Me Hanging On” (Kim Wilde)
Set me free, why don’t ya babe
Get out of my life, why don’t ya babe
You don’t really love me – you just keep me hangin’ on

Flashback – “Help!” (The Beatles)
When I was younger, so much younger than today
I never needed anyone’s help in any way

Partying – “I Like It” (The Blackout Allstarts)
Yeah, baby, I like it like that
I like it like that
*This song is real deep like that.

Happy Dance – “Winter” (Tori Amos)
Get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter

Regretting – “Holiday” (Madonna)

Long Night Alone – “Northern Lad” (Tori Amos)
He don’t show much these days
It gets so f—ing cold
I love his secret places
but I can’t go anymore

Death Scene – “The End of the Innocence” (Don Henley)
So lay your head back on the ground
Let your hair fall all around you
Offer up your best defense
This is the end, this is the end of the innocence

Closing Credits – “Daughter” (Pearl Jam)
She will rise.

    Tori Amos’s Winter is one of my all-time absolute favorite songs. Don’t even get me started on Pearl Jam. Farm Wife and I rewrote the lyrics to nearly every Pearl Jam song we knew. Daughter was my fav.
