Stolen from Tim:
Sort of. I saw this a little while ago and thought about snatching it but these questions are all so hard. There is a constant soundtrack in my head so I always have loads of songs that remind me of certain things and people. Anyway, with nothing new here in a while and no desire to write about the CRAZY changes I'm in the midst of, this will have to do:
Name a song....
...that reminds you of an ex:
"Both Hands" by Ani DiFranco and "These Are Days" by 10,000 Maniacs.
...that makes you cry:
There's no song that typically makes me cry, but one that could if I were in the right mood is "Baby Hold On" by Dixie Chicks, even though it's really about having trouble conceiving.
...that reminds you of your childhood:
"Gloria" by Laura Branigan. Reminds me of the local bar (not even kidding).
...that reminds you of high school:
So many! Let's go with two: Paula Cole's "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone" and Shawn Colvin's "Sunny Came Home" simply because these were played on the radio every five minutes when I first got my license and started driving around aimlessly ... because I could.
...that mirrors you too closely:
"You and I Both" by Jason Mraz
...that makes you laugh:
"My Girlfriend, Who Lives in Canada" from Avenue Q
...that will always get you up to dance:
These days it's the MTV Unplugged version of "Suenos" by Diego Torres.
...that you used to hate, but now love:
"Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani. I thought it was redunkulous but it really grew on me. It helps that I don't hear it every five minutes now. Damn you, Z100.
...that you love but wouldn't know of if it weren't for a friend:
"And Then You Kissed Me" by The Cardigans. Thanks, Tim!
...that you like from your parents' collection:
My mom tends to like the Top 40 stuff that I like. Also, I'm one of the only people who buys her CDs (she certainly doesn't buy her own). Let's go with "Let Go" by Frou Frou, which is on the Garden State soundtrack I gave her when she moved from NJ to Colorado and which was in her car CD player for ages.
...that makes you think of sex:
"Breathe on Me" by Britney Spears
...that is your anthem:
"Me Voy" by Julieta Venegas
...that is your ultimate love song:
"Runaway" by The Corrs
...that reminds you of something nasty:
"Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee
...that reminds you of a break-up:
"Who Knew" by Pink. The new break-up anthem.
...that makes you think of your friends:
"Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson
...that is held between you and a friend:
The theme song to Roundhouse, a weird Nickelodeon show from the early '90s. Love you, sugar booger!
...that would be your choice for a national anthem:
Uh ... I have no freaking idea. How about "I Hope" by Dixie Chicks. Because.
...that changed your life in some pragmatic way:
In a pragmatic way? OK, let's go with "Before the Goodbye" by Britney Spears.
