In a struggle to be original I have been racking my brain to come up with something more than “It’s been a while”. Yet while I am no genius with a unique perspective on the greater world and I have no opulent language to wow the masses with, I have procrastinated a blog post for long enough.
I have learned that I am not foolish enough to promise myself silly resolutions that I will write every day about some new topic about a certain thing.
I have also learned that while I am no genius or poetic writer the best and in-between authors suggest writing about what we know. And no one knows me better than me, that is besides God. So now I guess it came down to just picking some topics that don’t completely bore me.
I found some random questions to answer. Enjoy my answers! One every now and then.
1. Put your I-pod on shuffle and give me the first 6 songs.
1. Caruso by Josh Groban
I love this song, I love this cd. Heck! I love this singer!! Hello!! It’s freaking Josh Groban! What isn’t there to love about him. Senior year of high school, me and my besties were graduating and each of us heading in a different direction. One of our mom’s gave us this cd to help us get through the next years. That way we could listen to it and still be close to each other. How freaking sweet is that!? The best part is it makes me think of them and how awesome my friends are. We are still super close though we live far apart from each other most of the time.
2. Black or White by the Glee Cast
First the song. Awesome. Not just the message. But the memories of seeing the original music video when I was a kid. For all of Michael Jackson’s faults, he was a musical, lyrical, and choreograph-al genius! Powerful lyrics, awesome music and sensational dance moves. My favorite part is the awesome face melding they did at the end of his video
Second, Glee! When this show was first advertised and came on the air I was a huge Gleek! I loved it. Then it got to drama-y. But the music still rocks. I don’t watch the show anymore though.
3. Fum, Fum, Fum by Concordia Concert Choir
Ok so it’s just after Christmas so I still have a lot of Christmas music on my i-pod. This song was from my very first college choir concert. This song is so classically Christmas too. I could go on and on about choir and college memories and all of that for many a moon but I will spare you, for now. I will say though that college was some of the best years of my life and choir was so fundamental in those experiences.
4. Get Me To The Church On Time by Stanley Holloway and Cast from “My Fair Lady”
I love, love, love musicals! I love to watch them, see them, be in them. i definitely miss being in the theater. I would love to do them again. I hip that I will be again soon. While I have not been in this particular musical I can’t help but enjoy this one too, though not one of my favorites.
5. The Kraken by Hans Zimmer from Pirates of The Carribean
I guess being in love with the theater goes hand in hand with being a movie buff. Or maybe not. None the less I am one also. Have you ever noticed that when you are listening to epic music in your car, you tend to drive faster? Yeah I do, And this is definitely one I speed to.
6. Golden Slumbers/The End by K.D. lang from Happy Feet
This song is beautiful and sad. I like the movie too. I don’t remember where exactly this song came in during the movie though. Anyone have an idea? *shrug* oh well. This is one of those songs that I sometime find myself singing at random times. And on of the songs that match my voice well. K.D. Lang has those types of songs that I can sing. Like “Suddenly I See“. Also her name is interesting. Anyone else thought her name was Katie when they first heard it? I did. Who knew it was K.D.?
So what is your top 6 shuffled songs? I’d like to know.
