|11:13 am - 10 songs meme|
Comment and (if you want) I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter.
kajivar gave me D. (Yes, I've done other letters as part of this, but I do so enjoy it.)
I just sorta picked 10 semirandom songs.
"Denise" by Randy and Rainbows
Oh with your eyes so blue...
"Daydream Believer" by The Monkeys
Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings,
Of the bluebird as she sings.
The six o'clock alarm would never ring.
"Don't You Want Me" by The Thompson Twins
You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar,
When I met you.
I picked you up, I shook you off,
I turned you around,
And turned you into someone new.
Now 5 years later on,
You've got the world at your feet,
Success has come so easy for you,
But forget it's me who put your where you are now,
And I could put you back down too.
"Desert Moon" Dennis deYoung
The way to put our memories in a tiny cup,
We stumbled over words we longed to hear,
We talked about the dreams we'd lost, or given up,
"Dare to be Stupid" Weird Al
It's like spitting on a fish,
It's like barking up a tree,
It's like I said you gotta buy one if you wanna get one free.
"Dancing in the Dark" Bruce Springsteen
I'm sick of sitting around here,
Trying to write this book,
I need a love reaction,
Common, baby, give me just one look.
"Diamonds are Forever" Shirley Bassey
Unlike men, diamonds linger.
Men are mere morals who are not worth going to your grave for.
I don't need love,
For what good would love do.
Diamonds never lie to me,
For when love's gone,
They'll luster on.
"Damn, I wish I was your lover" Sophie B. Hawkins
I sat on the mountainside with peace of mind,
I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear,
Walked for days with no one near,
And I return as chained and bound to you
"Doctor, My Eyes" Jackson Browne
I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can.
"Do You Wanna Party" Schoolhouse Rock
A couple of hundred years ago, the democratic party began, (before that, they were called the Democratic Republican Party.)
They stand for public education, health care, and the welfare of the common man. (Andrew Jackson was the first president who was a Democrat.)
Then in the 1850s, the grand ole' party arrived, (That's the Republicans.)
Promising less government and standin' up for free enterprise.
I felt like I had to choose only one "Don't" so I didn't include the following "Don't" songs.
"Don't Cross the River" America
If you want you can ride my train,
And soon forget the reason that you're leaving
You'll lose yourself and then sometime,
Maybe even save yourself some grievin'
"Don't Speak" No Doubt
It's all ending,
I gotta stop pretending who we are...
You and me I can see us dying...are we?
I have a lot on my mind that I need to blog about, but not right now, as I'm in danger of running late.
Current Mood: busy
I hate you. I now have Denise stuck in my head. While I'm watching the BBC Robin Hood. Really odd combination.

Dude. It's The Human League, not The Thompson Twins. I guess they sound a bit alike...
I was about to post this same thing, Ben. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who's anal about his 80s music. ;)
Except for the female vocalist, which should have been an obvious indicator.
I changed the song from "Doctor Doctor" to "Don't You Want Me" and forgot to change the artist.
...of course, this all makes me think of "Don't Kill The Whale" by Yes. One of those you-gotta-love-it-cause-its-just-so-BAD songs.Rejoice they sing
They worship their own space
In a moment of love, they will die for their grace
Don't kill the whalehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlgH7Oec__s
has the official music video, if you are morbidly curious. :)
every time I hear a song from America's Greatest Hits (including "Don't Cross The River"), I think of the trip we took at Spring Break to Pittsburgh. It seems like a million years ago.
And I thought you'd be all about the night we stood and waited for the desert train.
that too. lots
of songs make me think of you.
there's a meme: ten songs that make me think of mdyesowitch
