Music Meme

So Bored. So here's another meme. I promise I won't do these every day.

WHAT SONG…

Reminds you of your youth…
This is too vague of a question. Which part of my youth? I've been listening to music for as long as I can remember and it always changes. But in high school I discovered Oasis and it changed my life. So I'm going to go with “Live Forever”. And I guess I'm still young so…who knows.

Gives you the chills…
This might sound lame, but “American Pie” does give me the chills. Still. Even though I've heard it 100 times. It's about “The Day The Music Died” and I can't even watch the “Behind the Music” or read a biography about Buddy Holly without crying. That song is bookended with two of the most beautiful verses I've ever heard. When he says “February made me shiver” I shiver and whenever he gets to the last verse of that song, man, It just gets me.

Makes you want to bang your head…
Depends on how they mean it. Guns n' Roses is usually good for rocking out. I also really like Queen. Most Nu Metal makes me want to bang my head against a wall.

You wish you knew the lyrics to…
“The Devil Went Down to Georgia”.

Makes you so upset you turn it off…
I turn off any country western “pro-America/anti-everyone else” song because I don't like to be reminded that so many people like that exist.

Was/is 'your song' with someone else…
I've never had an official “song” with someone. But an ex of mine used to sing “Glory of Love” by Peter Cetera to me in falsetto and I thought that was cute.

Makes you want to dance…
“Modern Love” by David Bowie.

Helps you heal after a breakup…
The entire album “Pinkerton” by Weezer. Faye knows this all too well, as, after a particularly difficult breakup, I listened to that album for 2 years straight. Love's a bitch sometimes.

Your parents made you listen to…
“Chiquitita” by ABBA. My mom's nickname for me as a little girl was “Chiquitita” and so she would always sing it to me and embarass the hell out of me.

Ignites a specific memory…
How can I answer this? MOST songs trigger some sort of specific memory. I think if I tried to pinpoint one right now, my head would explode.

You've dedicated to someone…
What? Like, over the radio? I've never done that. But I did make a catharsis tape about the previous mentioned difficult breakup and it was full of bitter bitter songs.

You identify with…
Again, I don't know how to answer this. Do they mean a song that is autobiographical or something? A theme song? I remember when I was in high school and feeling repressed by republicans, I would sing “Rock n' Roll Star” by Oasis. Particularly the line “I'll be scraping their lives from the sole of my shoe tonight”. I'm a vengeful motherfucker.

WOOHOO! It's almost lunch time! I do wish that Faye and Tom would come visit me. :(
