13 Musical Questions

Because Kerry said I had to... lol

1. Song that sounds like happy feels:
"Centerfold" by J. Geils Band

2. Earliest Memory:
Well, I don't remember who sang it, but my parents and a lot of old 33's, and there was a country song that went "I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it, cos I know just what I'm gonna do. Gonna spend my money, callin' everybody honey, and wind up singin' the blues..." So evidenty, if you want your kids to grow up and abstain from alcohol, play drinking songs for them when they're young.

3. Last CD you bought:
Well, I bought 3 used ones Saturday night: When The Wrong One Loves You Right by Wade Hayes, 20 Classical Favorites by Various Artists, and I See It Now by Tracy Lawrence.

4. Reminds you of school:
Hmm. I don't think I really knew what music was at this point. I guess either the Electric Company theme or the Sesame Street theme. You know, "Sunny days, sweepin' the clouds away..."

High School
There are several. "All Around The World" by Lisa Stansfield reminds me of the bowling field trip. "Ice Ice Baby" reminds me of homecoming my senior year. And "Look Away" by Chicago, because there would always be these guys sitting by the door in the morning singing that song really loud.

I was in a mostly country phase at this time. No particular song stands out.

5. Total music files on your PC
Very, very few. A handful. For some reason, I was never really big on the downloading thing.

6. Song for listening to repeatedly while depressed
I don't think I listen to any songs repeatedly when depressed. Although I don't have it, I suppose that "Dead, Dead, Dead" would be a good one. It's quite uplifting.

7. Song that sounds British, but isn't:
Wow, that's a hard one. I dunno, every song I can think of that sounds British IS British. What about "Love Shack" by B-52's? That guy kinda sounds British. Maybe. Or not.

8. Song you love, band you hate:
Does this mean a song I love that is done by a band I hate? I can't think of any. Why would I hate a band if I loved their song?

9. A favorite song from the past that took ages to track down:
How about a few that I'd like to track down, but haven't really tried that hard to find? "Set Adrift On Memory Bliss" by PM Dawn, "New Age Girl" by Deadeye Dick, and "Reasons To Quit" by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.

10. Bought the album for one good song:
OK, I've only done this about twenty times, but the one that stands out is Dexter Freebish. I bought their album for "Leavin' Town" and the rest of the CD was a complete and total auditory nightmare. It was less entertaining than Dick Cheney reading aloud from the phone book.

11. Worst song to get stuck in your head:
It was "Carol Of The Bells" for a long time, but I don't seem to get stuck on that one much anymore. The Sesame Street is a good one, especially at work... or in mental hospitals. And the A-Team theme song. I like to make up various lyrics and sing them to the tune of the A-Team theme song. For example... eh, nevermind.

12. Best song to dump a beer on someone's head to, then storm out of the bar:
Sounds like this one came from someone's personal experience. I have no clue. "Friends In Low Places", I guess.

13. Who should do this next?
Um, J-Mo? Lindsy? Anyone who is bored at work and can actually come up with answers to all 13 questions. A couple of these were pretty tough for me.

"Reaching out, I touch a stranger. Electric eyes are everywhere. See that girl? She knows I'm watching. She likes the way I stare..."


  1. I don't know if I should be excited that you want me to do this or bummed b/c you think I don't do anything at work. :)
