30 day meme that really shouldn't take 30 days so I'm doing it in one! Hoo-ah!

Day 01 - Your favourite song
oh god I have WAY too many. It is literally impossible for me to say which is my favourite right now, because I'm going through my iPod and rediscovering songs I love but haven't listened to in a while. I suppose that RIGHT NOW, it'd be either "Love Love Love" by The Mountain Goats, or Mozart's Concerto No. 23 for Piano and Orchestra.

Day 02 - Your least favourite song
"I Kissed  A Girl", by Katy Perry. God, FUCK that song.
Heh, I love that it took me SO LONG to figure out my favourite song for Day 1, but this was immediate and totally accurate.

Day 03 - A song that makes you happy
"Take Me Home Country Roads", by John Denver. It's awesome and just... agh. It sounds like sunshine on a dirt road.

Day 04 - A song that makes you sad
"February Song", by Josh Groban. ):

Day 05 - A song that reminds you of someone
"Gravity", by Sara Bareilles. Reminds me of an old flame.

Day 06 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere
I'm not sure... SomeWHERE? Hmm. Oh, I know! James Galway's version of the theme from "Braveheart". It reminds me of being in Bannockburn, Scotland, near the statues of Robert the Bruce and William Wallace, with the hills rolling greenly in the distance and the sound of bagpipes. Eeee.

Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event
"You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)" by Meat Loaf. Reminds me of the first time I hung out with a guy who would become my boyfriend and later one of my closest friends. =)

Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to
I know all the words to SO MANY SONGS, I cannot pick just one. But right now, I suppose we can go with "Holiday Clusterfuck", by Doug Walker. Because I can.

Day 09 - A song that you can dance to
"Dragostea Din Tea", by O-Zone. That's right. The Numa Numa Song. It comes on my iPod and I *have* to dance to it. It is a REQUIREMENT.

Day 10 - A song that makes you fall asleep
"Never Forget", from the Halo 3 soundtrack. Shut up, it's relaxing.

Day 11 - A song from your favourite band
I honestly don't have a favourite band.

Day 12 - A song from a band you hate
"Empire State of Mind", by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. I dislike rap in general, but I love this song.

Day 13 - A song that is a guilty pleasure
*sigh* ... "Just So You Know", by Jesse McCartney. I KNOW, I KNOW, but I really like the song, okay?

Day 14 - A song that no one would expect you to love
"Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga. I mean, with the amount i bitch about this song? Yeah, nobody suspects that I secretly ADORE it. And her.

Day 15 - A song that describes you
Oh god. Ummm. Well, if I want to be totally ridiculous, I could say "Nostalgia Critic Anthem" by Benzaie (one of the lines is "I love Doug Walker, it's true", I mean come on now), but I kind of want to be serious about this. Uhh...
OH! I KNOW! "Confrontation", from Jekyll and Hyde. It is totally awesome, and so much like me it makes me kind of want to kill myself.

Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate
I don't know. I don't *hate* that many songs. And the ones I do, I remove from my life.

Day 17 - A song that you hear often on the radio
I don't really listen to the radio that often, so...

Day 18 - A song that you wish you heard on the radio

Day 19 - A song from your favourite album
My favourite full album? That'd be The High Kings, from The High Kings (obviously). My favourite song off of it... man, I love all of them. Probably either "The Rocky Road to Dublin" or "Galway to Graceland".

Day 20 - A song that you listen to when you’re angry
Depends on what kind of angry it is. I have a whole list, really. "Requiem For A Dream", "Bitch/Slut/Liar/Whore", "Alive"...

Day 21 - A song that you listen to when you’re happy
If I'm not happy when I listen to "It's Okay To Be Gay", by Tomboy, then I sure as hell am once it's over. =)

Day 22 - A song that you listen to when you’re sad
Metric's cover of "Between the Bars", by Elliott Smith. It makes me feel so much better.

Day 23 - A song that you want to play at your wedding
Right now, all I can think is "Strange Animal" by Gowan. But that's probably because I'm listening to it now and I would love to dance to that with my future wife.

Day 24 - A song that you want to play at your funeral
"Alexandra Leaving", by Leonard Cohen. If you haven't heard it, go listen. It is bloody perfect.

Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh
"Living In The Sunlight, Loving In The Moonlight", by Tiny Tim. I admit, some of that is nervous laughter, but hey who cares.

Day 26 - A song that you can play on an instrument
I can play lots of songs. "The Last Rose of Summer" is my favourite.

Day 27 - A song that you wish you could play
Everything I can't play.

Day 28 - A song that makes you feel guilty
I don't really have any songs like that. Well, maybe "I'll Be (Your Crying Shoulder)", by Edwin McCain. Sarah and I danced to it at prom, and every time I hear it I feel like I don't treat her as well as she deserves.

Day 29 - A song from your childhood
"Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", by The Smiths. Yeah, I had a weird, eclectic childhood.

Day 30 - Your favourite song at this time last year
Probably "Bat Out Of Hell", by Meat Loaf.

    I think you all should DEFINITELY GO LOOK AT IT and COMMENT and SUBSCRIBE because I'm REALLY LONELY OVER THERE. I want to become a YouTube…

  • Writer's Block: Bone appetit!

    I'm assuming this has no basis in reality, being that my cat cannot arrange a dinner party. But, if Bearcat were to arrange a dinner party he'd…
