Hate is a strong word
In general, I hate memes. But I like Shan, and she's tagged me twice now, and I blew off the last one. And this one is about music, at least. And it saves me from having to put much actual thought into writing a post. So fine, okay, whatever. Here goes:
One song from early childhood: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Elton John (Yes, I know, I'm old. Fuck off.)
One song you associate with your first big love: Hysteria, Def Leppard (We were 14, and Shawn had the most amazing mullet...sigh...)
One song that reminds you of one of your holidays: Something I Can Never Have, Nine Inch Nails (San Diego, 1991...teen angst on a beach...Oh, the gheyness...)
One song you like, but hate to admit: MMMBop, Hanson (Again, I know, and fuck off.)
One song listened to while you where lovesick: Were I capable of such emotions, it would Losing My Religion, REM. Thank god I'm such a heartless bitch.
One song you listened to most often in your life: Watching the Detectives, Elvis Costello
One song which is your favorite instrumental: Miles Davis' Funeral, Morphine
One song by one of your favorite bands: Million $ Man, The Giraffes
One song in which you recognize yourself or through which you somehow feel understood: Probably Will, Concrete Blonde
One song which reminds you to a certain occasion (and the occasion): Party Up, DMX. Summer, 2001. Imagine ten or so extremely white, extremely drunk, heavily tattooed assholes sitting on the outdoor patio of a dive bar adjacent to a busy, smarmy, crime-ridden street. Imagine then that the biggest, drunkest, most brilliantly retarded of them, apropos of nothing, busts out with "Y'ALL GON' MAKE ME LOSE MY MIND!" And then, of course, that the remaining nine assholes respond, in unison, with "UP IN HEAH, UP IN HEAH!" Yeah, good times. Now perhaps you understand why I don't live in Denver anymore.
One rap/ hip hop song you like: Anything Public Enemy ever did.
One song that helps you relax: Magic & Loss, Lou Reed
One song which symbolizes a great time in your life: Coney Island, Death Cab for Cutie
One song which is your most favorite at the moment: Wish You All the Best, New Professionals
One song you would dedicate to your best friend: Megacolon, Fischerspooner
One song no one besides you likes: Yes, I DO have Insane Clown Posse in my iPod. And yet again I must say...fuck off.
One song you like because of its lyrics: Drooping the Boom, Mishka Shubaly
One song you like which is not in English: Anything by the Buena Vista Social Club. If I hadda pick one song off that record, it'd be Chan Chan. Or Dos Gardenias...hmmm...
One song that helps you work out: Like I work out. Ever. Pssh.
One song that should be played on your funeral: End of the World, REM (duh...)
So there you go, little missy. Tag me again and I'll fly over there & pee in yer yard, or somethin'.
And now, just to ensure my place in the American Museum of Hypocritical Shitwads, I'll share the joy with Aaron, Charles, Dan, Tom, and Natalie.
