meme of sorts: music shuffle

luke & tria did this. so i'm jumping on that....i'm posting this on facebook too. (also, i passed on Malajube, 'cuz i couldn't find their wacky french lyrics anywhere.)

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly in the comments.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own.
IF THE SONG HAS THE NAME IN IT, use "---" INSTEAD.

I knew 23 damnit.

The rest is no doubt Sinatra or Elvis other such old lady music as befits your age (bitter at not knowing any? me?)

says the guys who owns the essential jerry reed. if you were to do this, i'm guessing that 50% of all the songs would be ben folds. 3/4 of these bands are younger then you, you should allow yourself to explore a little. with age come wisdom, you know! or maybe you don't yet.

and on that note, there is an elvis song on this list.

hint for luke & tria—you have #1....

older stuff

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
