The Greatest Song in the World

No, unfortunately, none of this week's songs have been either the greatest song in the world or The Tribute to the Greatest Song in the World (which is what I'm listening to as I post this....), but they are pretty darn good songs in their own right.

Check 'em out...

Monday: F-Stop Blues, Jack Johnson (Yes! finally, some JJ!!)
Tuesday: I'm a Terrible Person, Rooney (Great Friday afternoon rock)
Wednesday: Life for Rent, Dido

I did wake up with a song in my head on Sunday this time, but for the life of me, I haven't been able to remember it. It's another one of those random songs that gets played occasionaly on KNIN, but isnt even remotely in my "library of cool." All I remember about it is that somewhere in one of the verses, its talking about "Sally," but not the Mustang variety. Oh well...

Man, even with daily occurences, I still can't seem to post daily. Sorry, anyone who is actually reading this.... I'll try to play catch up today.

Well, to my defense, no music graced my awakening on Friday morning, so there was nothing to post. But on Saturday, I had one of the most random Limp Bizkit songs in my head, A Lesson Learned. In fact, it only has a Play Count of "2" in my iTunes and 1 of those was me listening to it on Saturday morning to make sure it was the right there is no telling why that popped in my head. It's kind of a depressing song too....

Now, the only thing consistent about any of this is that no songs are in my head on Sunday mornings. This Sunday was no different.

However, Monday was fun because I woke up with track 11 of the Snatch Soundtrack in my head. Ironically, however, it's not even a song. Just a line from the movie, as spoken by Alan Ford:

"Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personfied in this case by a 'orrible c***..... Me!"

If you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend it. Brad Pitt (the slut) is quite good in it, and it's probably Guy Ritchie's finest...although I haven't seen Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Tuesday I woke up with another commercial jingle in my head, and thankfully it left me before I could record it somewhere. This morning Cassie's alarm disturbed my final moments of slumber so I don't think I had one today either.

Sorry the last few days have been fairly boring and sorry that the songs that I do come up with are fairly random and obscure...but what do you expect when you listen to iTunes party shuffle at least 8 hours a day while staring at a computer screen?! Oh...and any new music samples will be greatly appreciated from any generous donors. In fact, Stevo owes me some Rage already, so we'll see how that goes...and Peter Gabriel is as good a guess as any, Rick. I haven't heard the commercial again, but I will remain vigilant and increase my TV watching.

You gotta do what you gotta do....

I am Jack's....happy song?

Today's music was brought to us courtesy of The Who. Happy Jack...perhaps best known for use in a very funny Hummer commercial (one of the only funny Hummer commercials).

Speaking of commercials, I keep hearing this new commercial that has an awesome song as its music. It sounds like the Beatles, but I'm not sure. Also, I am not watching the TV usually when the commercial comes on, just listening in the background. Either way, the song rocks and I'm gonna need to get that somehow.

If anyone knows what song it is from this very elaborate and highly-detailed information I just provided, please hook me up. Otherwise, I'll keep investigating and then post/google when I know more.

Only the blue cars?

Today's "selection" contributes further to the confusion of the songs in my head and where the heck they come from....

Counting Blue Cars by Dishwalla

I cannot remember the last time I heard that song played anywhere, much less why I would have it playing in my dreams.

Until tomorrow....

Musak in my head

So, I've been too busy to post lately, but I have been keeping track of my waking music. Here's how the last days have broken down:

Thursday - See Last Post
Friday - Out of My Mind, James Blunt
Saturday - I think there was something, but it was very weak and soon forgotten...
Sunday - Maybe my weekend dreams just don't have music?
Monday - Place for My Head, Linkin Park

Now, today is the real kicker... It wasn't a "song" at all...

"Don't let allergens or irritants do you in...
Ask your doctor 'bout Astelin!!"


(Oh yeah, and Rick... You too can be mondo sleek and link to iTunes like me. Just find a song in the iTunes Music Store and right click and "Copy iTunes Music Store URL" then paste that as the link in Blogger. )

My New Thing

So, every morning, I wake up with a different, seemingly random song in my head. While I am chopping vegetables for Cassie's salad, I can think of nothing besides this song.

I just realized that I may be unwittingly holding the secret to man's greatest problems in analyzing the human psyche. To perform my civic duty, I shall record for posterity, in the form of an iTunes playlist (what else?) these songs. Independently, these songs are nothing more than whimsical tunes and perhaps the soundtrack of my dreams. But together...together, these songs will undoubtedly combine to form some sort of message revealing the answer to life, the universe, and everything (42?) Maybe I'll even make it an iMix and see how many stars I can get for my wonderful contribution to science...also, I will use this as incentive to continue to have something to post to my blog.

Beginning today, with O-zone's Dragostea Din Tei, the project shall begin. Check back with me later to see what I am able to discover. If Cassie and I can't crack it, maybe Russell Crowe can help...nah, he looks busy.

J to the Izzo...
