Life is off-kilter
My world seems to tilter
And spin on the point
Of a dime or a pin
Is this new rock-faller
One big, small or smaller
Than others, who knows?
Let the music play in…
DJ Jen and her Groupie (what? No? I didn’t just…but the groupies are the BEST part of being in a band, right?) want to know which music I/you/we like which is waaaaaaay off base from our usually-preferred genres.
Jukebox ’em up!
I’m bad at soppy, terrible at lovey-dovey, and the saccharine super-puke stickiness of some songs makes me occasionally wish I could tear my arm off, just to have something to hurl at the radio and make it stop.
But these two I’ve loved for many years. Which just goes to show I’m all this, and a hypocrite, too 😉
Not that I’d actually use the above in a ‘I’m sending this to you in lieu of actual words’ to anyone. Ever.
This one, however, I totally dedicate to Husby 🙂
Just because it REALLY irks me when someone tries to muck around with something which is already pretty perfect. But in finding this, I found that it’s true – it can work, just sometimes. Awesome! Gives me chills when it hits the drop…
Yeah, yeah, don’t I sound cool, talkin’ ’bout dubstep like I have a single clue 😉
I just never managed to really get into it. I think I was a little put off after a girl in college marched up to me and demanded “Name three hip-hop artists, and none of them can be Destiny’s Child” and in response to my baffled splutterings, rolled her eyes and informed me that I clearly had NO grasp of good music, and stalked off.
But then after a chat with Emma, I remembered that I ADORE ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’, which is Hip Hop through and through. Guess I’m cooler than even I knew…
Oh gosh, don’t even get me started on the teenage angst! Can’t stand it as a movement, but as a person who was significantly angsty and would’ve probably qualified for the label ‘Premo’ (as in, before it was cool) I did (slightly shamefully, when I found out who the awesomerockin’ tune was by) admit to having a HUGE amount of time for JUST this track by *whispers* My Chemical Romance
Jen, Kristi, somehow each week you continue to expand my mind and my horizons and my understanding of my musical soul with these prompts – thank you 🙂
