seriously, these "first ten songs" posts are getting out of hand. i first saw that adam had done this, and i thought, wow, list the next ten songs that your ipod plays, what a neat and original idea, but now everyone has one. what's that? you don't have one? oh my god, you're a total loser and you should either a) go to your blog and write down your ten songs immediately before anyone notices how out-of-the-loop your are, or b) stop reading my blog, because i don't think we can be friends if you haven't jumped on this bandwagon. for real.
so anyway, you guys know by now that i'm a bit sarcastic. and maybe a little hypocritical. so while i usually dislike the "everybody's doing it" mentality.... okay, this ipod thing was a really good idea, and it's fun, and it's easy, and i think you can tell a lot about a person by her music, so here i go. this may be cheating a little bit, because i only have an ishuffle, so my selection is much more narrow and i'm therefore much more likely to get the awesome songs that will make everyone jealous, but i promise you, somewhere on this little baby is a very sappy michael jackson song that was quite popular ten years ago among middle-school girls, and even then it wasn't cool. if if comes up, it comes up. here goes:
1. The Beatles - "Hey Bulldog" (yeeeesssssssss, my first song rocks!)
2. Pete Yorn - "Ever Fallen in Love"
3. Paul Young - "Everytime you go Away" (stop laughing, this song is fun.)
4. Frou Frou - "Holding Out for a Hero"
5. Yes - "I Would have Waited Forever" (suh-weet!)
6. Billy Idol - "Hot in the City"
7. Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean" (that was close)
8. Thompson Twins - "Hold Me Now"
9. Queen - "Somebody to Love"
10. The Beatles - "Why Don't We Do It in the Road"
dude, i'm so cool, my songs rock! especially that last one. i really think that if the lyrics were different (as in, something other than "why don't we do it in the road, why don't we do it in the road, why don't we do it in the road, why don't we do it in the road, no one will be watching us, why don't we do it in the road?"), it could be the greatest rock song EVER. the beat at the beggining... just... brilliant. oh, and by the way, did you know that the only two beatles who actually worked on that song were ringo and paul? but doesn't it seem like a john song?!? well it's not!!! see, you learn things every day. bandwagons rule!
looking over the rest of my songs... hmm, i'm holding out for a hero, looking for somebody to love, waiting forever... man, this is sort of depressing. but then again, there is billy idol. and hey bulldog.
oh my gosh! my #11 song is the strongbad techno. too bad i can't write that on my list. that would be cheating.
(get it? CHEATing?!? ha! i'm funny.)
