The Ice Is Getting Thin

I'm one of those people who must have a soundtrack to my life. I love to pop in Ani, Tori or Evanescence when I'm feeling very jaded and angry. And I love to cry to Sarah and Alanis when I'm feeling dejected. By far, the songs of Van Halen and Brian Setzer Orchestra get me upbeat and sunny.

And then there are the songs I relate to those I have known in my life. We all do it - it's a type of sensory memory of those we love. And I have some great memories.

Barbie Girl (Aqua) - Rachael G
What's Up (4 Non-Blondes) - My Girls at Camp
Dancin' Nancies (DMB) - Nick
Seasons of Love (Rent) - Brian T
Leather (Tori Amos) - Erin
Move Bitch (Ludicrous) - Nathan
First Kiss (TMBG) - Mark
Love Cats (The Cure) - Shannon
King of Spain (Moxy Fruvous) - Jody
Don't Let's Start (TMBG) - Jennie
Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk (Rufus Wainwright) - Jesse
Sad Girl (Moxy Fruvous) - Leslie
When Doves Cry (Prince) - Tiffany
If I Fell (Beatles) - Christie
In My Life (Beatles) - Paulie
Particle Man (TMBG) - Karen
My Baby Loves A Bunch Of Authors (Moxy Fruvous) - Brian W
Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffet) - Karla
Riveria Paradise (SRV) - Brandon

There's plenty more and of course, some who have more than one. But I'll have to think on them.

Now, how did Karla make this and I didn't?????

Maple de Fische said...

Because, dear, there are too many songs for you...

Alrighty all, for Char there is the eternal House of the Rising Sun and any Matchbox Twenty song off the first album. Also add anything from the musical Brigadoon and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy...

There's more of that too...

Ah, The House of the Rising Sun...
