There's this song...

Okay, so a while ago I was in crisis mode, you can read the previous posts and get that vibe. Anyway to help me through my "funk" my good friend The Saint made me some kick a** cd mixes. They are labeled "strong women #..." and this last one, #7, is hilarious. It has a bunch of angry British chicks singing about relationships and there is the one song called "D!ckhead" that I could listen to over and over again. Seriously, if your significant other has ever, ever, messed up in any kind of way you HAVE to hear this song. I wonder if there's a way I can put it in this blog...hmmm... I think all of you would appreciate it, unless there is one of you out there that has found the perfect man who has never done anything wrong ever...and if that's you...you're lying.

It's funny how music can represent what we're thinking, feeling, going through... It's as if the artist or song writer is living your life. Of course the same can be said for poetry, or sometimes it's just a simple quote. It can put everything into perspective. These things bring us together, they make us feel like we're not alone. I mean, how could we be alone if someone else that is somewhere else is going through the EXACT same thing that we are?? Ahhh...I could go on and on. The universe is connected, we are all connected, everything happens for a reason and happens at the appropriate time in our lives. Life is a big lesson. I think I'm averaging a C+ right now.

What songs touch you? What songs represent your life? Your love? Your family??

Songs that touch me:
Holst - The Planets (I realize this is an instrumental song, but it's powerful)
Ashlee Simpson - "Say Goodbye"
Toad and the Wet Sprocket "Windmills"
Gary Jules - "Mad World"
And many more...

Songs that represent my life:
Sheryl Crow - "Soak up the Sun"
Ashlee Simpson - "Beautifully Broken" (I know some of you can't stand Ashlee, but I like her)
Oh, so many...

Songs that represent my love:
KISS - "Every Time I Look at You"
Dave Matthews Band - "Crash"
Macy Gray - "Freak Like Me"
And again, many more...

Song that represent my family:
Huh...is there a song that sums up any dysfunctional family?? I'll have to think about that one.

There are so many songs and at different points in our life we are touched. These are mine for now and some that will be on those lists forever.

How about you? What songs do you connect with? What makes you think of that special person or people in your life?

LOVE Dickhead!! Ha, ha! I typed that and then re-read it and it sounds funny. Love it. It stays. It's a very "Sexy Hippie" thing to say, huh?!

What I meant to say was, "I love the song, 'Dickhead.'"

The first one sounded much better.

Isn't music amazing in the ways it takes us back, moves us forward, opens up eyes, and shines back like a mirror?

The one song that represents my life is "Homeward Bound" by Simon and Garfunkel. It has been my favorite song since I knew what music was and it amazingly suits my heart in every situation I have ever found myself in. And "home" not always being home in the traditional sense of the word - you know?

And, like Sexy Hippie, I love Dickhead. Ha!

"The Story" by Brandi Carlile is a good one. I highly recommend it when you're trying to find your "center" after a rough day/week. "Don't Worry Baby" by the Beach Boys always reminds me of my childhood and has a real "home" feel to it for me. It makes me happy.
