Watch out, my darlings. I’m gonna bring the party down a bit.
You know those songs that you hear and you’re like, “That’s my song!” Not in the drunken “Ooo, girl, that’s my SONG! Here, hold my purse…” but in the, “This describes everything perfectly RIGHT THIS MINUTE.” Ever have some of those songs? Here are some of mine. Not currently applicable, but they always take me back..and apparently “back” is kind of a emo place.
[The links lead to videos off-site. Embeds sometimes suck and frankly I'm tired of dealing with them. If someone knows how to do one of those embedded music player jukebox thingies, I will show you my boobies. Or bake you something or both. Whatever, I'd be super grateful.]
“New Soul” Yael Nain
This is one of my Pandora discoveries, though I think it was used for some ad. (Note: Googled it. Macbook ad. WHY are most of my favorite songs used in Apple ads?)
Anyway, this is one of those that really spoke to me at the time because I was trying really hard to be a good person/adult/friend/girlfriend and apparently SCREWING IT ALL UP.
Okay, I wasn’t actually screwing it up, I was being told I was screwing it up because I was around bad people.
Except for the adult part. I was screwing that up a little bit. Store credit cards are BAD for you, moppets, BAD. Victoria’s Secret does NOT love you, no matter how many times they up your limit.
“22” Lily Allen
This one I first heard when I was already with Jethro, but it was a fairly accurate view of me and some of my friends just six months prior. There gets to be a point when you get tired of the bar scene and you’re like, “This is what I spent so much time trying to get older for??” The lyrics are kind of a downer, but I choose to believe that it’s a hopeful song. Shut up, it IS!
“Portions for Foxes” Rilo Kiley
I was NOT with Jethro with this song.
(Sidenote: I’ve been slightly mushy lately and this much more healthy song reminds me of Jethro and makes me smile. And then he leaves his damn plate on the floor again and I’m over it.)
And yes, that’s the girl from Troop Beverly Hills. She’s much cooler now.
“Rain” Patty Griffin
You know those songs where you put on repeat and just play over and over while you lie on the bed and stare at the ceiling fan and wonder what the hell you are doing with your life?
Not that that’s a bad thing. I could be in the best and giddiest mood, but Patty tends to speak to my soul and turn me introspective.
And maybe a little maudlin.
Okay, a lot.
Whatever, she’s awesome.
“Keep Breathing” Ingrid Michaelson
Sometimes you’re helpless. And sometime you feel helpless when you are decidedly NOT. And I just heart Ingrid Michaelson. Plus she’s just so damn cute.
Anyway, what are YOUR songs; the ones that made you stop and go “Holy sh*t, that’s totally me…:
And just so I don’t leave you in a sad, emo mood, here’s a picture of bunny that looks like a kitty that looks like a bunny. (from Cute Overload, natch.)
