25-Day Song Challenge--DAYS 13, 14, 15, 16


Wow...really behind. Still fighting this cold.

Day 13: A song that reminds you of a  former friend.
Whenever I would talk to a certain female friend of mine when she lived with her boyfriend in NYC, for some reason this song would always come on my player:



When I Come Around--Green Day

Day 14: A song that reminds you of your boyfriend.

We have this as "our song":





Everlong--Foo Fighters.
This seemed to be our song from the very beginning. There are a few others, but this is THE one.

Day 15: A song you love singing along to.

I have a ton of these, but this is one I'm always singing like a maniac when I'm cooking:




Pretend To Be Nice--Josie and the Pussycats.

Day 16: A song that has made you cry.

Oh, for sure, this one did. Like a baby.




Into The Ocean--Blue October.

25-Day Song Challenge-- DAYS 11-12


Day 11: A song on the soundtrack of your favourite movie.
I have waaaayyyy too many favourite movies, but the first thing that came to mind was this:




Black Sheep--The Clash at Demonhead. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Soundtrack. I prefer the version with Brie Larson's vocal, even though it is technically a song by the band Metric.

Day 12: The last song you heard.

I believe it may have been this:




Birthday Cake--Cibo Matto. I blame Jet Set Radio Future.

25-Day Song Challenge DAYS 7, 8, 9 and 10

Sorry I'm behind, BTW. I was busy, and then took ill. Still not feeling that great, but...here we go.

Day 07: A song that reminds you of the past summer.

Like you didn't know this was coming cuz it was only everywhere:




Gangnam Style--PSY.
Eff you-- I love it, LOL

Day 08: A song that reminds you of your first love.

Oh, WOW.
Uhm...prolly this one:




Patience--Guns N Roses
I chose it because it always reminds me of him for some reason. We were really into this band's stuff.

Day 09: A song that makes you hopeful.

I guess this...I dunno if it's exactly hopeful, but sometimes it does keep me going.




Move Along--All American Rejects

Day 10: A song by your favourite band.

I dunno if I even HAVE one of those anymore...like an absolute fave. There are a few I would pay to see. Maybe this one will work, then....



  The Small Print-- MUSE
One of my faves by them. I love this band.

25-Day Song Challenge--DAY 6


Day 06: A song that reminds you of a best friend.
Huh.
My best friend is my boyfriend of five years, Peace. He's probably the bestest friend I have ever had, TBH. I'm not just saying that because he's the father of my cubs, either. He walked in when everyone else walked out; 'nuff said; g'night. Fierce loyalty, not fairweather, always down for fxckin' whatever. If I ever found a female friend with that kinda loyalty, I'd get on my knees and thank God/dess. 
I have pretty good female friends, old friends, and people who I admire and get on well with, but my best friend is Peace. And, honestly, to find one song that reminds me of him in a friendship context is damned difficult.
But I'll try, anyway.
Uhm...
I got it.





Otherside--Red Hot Chili Peppers.

On my birthday one year we went to a karaoke bar (that I will never set foot in again, I guess) and he got onstage with his then-chyck and tried--TRIED-- to sing this song. I was so tickled by it cuz he wasn't even trying to read the lyrics, LOL. That's why I use emphasis on "tried"! I thought it took some cojones, and it was definitely memorable. He also brought me a Mudd bag that I carried, like, everywhere after that.
Oddly enough, he started singing the hook from this the other day for no apparent reason, and stared right into my eyes while doing so. I smiled. Partly because of that karaoke thing!
So, while we weren't best friends--but good friends-- at the time, I think this is still a fair choice.

25-Day Song Challenge--DAY 5


Day 05: A song that is often stuck in your head.

Easy.
Right now it's this:





Help I'm Alive--Metric

I really love this song because I can relate to it for some reason. I have some strange emotional connection to it. Eighty percent of the time it's stuck in my head.

25-Day Song Challenge--DAY 4


Day 04: A song that calms you down.

Y'know...I never really thought about this, and I'm not sure I even HAVE a current one that accomplishes this task. BUT...I can name one that did for me once...so much so I had an out-of-body-experience while listening to it.




This is from Songs From The Big Chair: Listen--Tears For Fears.
I love this band.

25-Day Song Challenge--DAY 3


Day 3: A song that reminds you of one/both of your parents.
Also hard... but I think I got at least one.
This song reminds me of my dad because, well, he's mentioned in it. You see, my dad, he grew up with George Clinton. They were on the same label; my dad was in a group called The Supremes; George with The Parliaments. They always had this rivalry/acknowledgement thing going on where they would reference each other. This song contains a reference to my dad by George, and so I pick this :



Flash Light--Parliament.

25-Day Song Challenge--DAY 2


Day 02: A song that reminds you of your most recent ex-boyfriend/girlfriend.

This is a DUMB one.
Hmmm...and difficult.
I got it.
I guess this would be told from the POV of the ex--as if they're speaking. Or maybe it's all I heard whenever they talked towards the end--even well BEFORE the end, but, y'know, brainwashing'll do that to you.





Liar--Rollins Band
...'nuff said.

25-Day Song Challenge--DAY 1

Okay, giving this a shot...

Day 01: A song from your childhood.
Huh.
Okay, to keep folx guessing, I will give more than one...hee hee hee!!!




Take On Me from a-ha. This video is fxcking epic. I chose it because it makes me happy, and I currently have it on my mp3 player. But you know what? They have another I love that no-one seems to remember:




The Sun Always Shines on TV. I just seem to have this...connection to this song.




Leave Me Alone--Michael Jackson. Chosen cuz, yeh--I DO feel like this sometimes due to outside drama from sources I don't need it from...




  Spice Girls--Say You'll Be There. I just like the visuals.



Okay, that's enough...I said I'd keep you guessing.

Okay, Let's See...

Where do I start...
I'm grateful Mercury Retrograde is almost over-- I am so sick of not being understood even more so than usual! Anything technical has been screwing up when it can, and it's so frustrating. But things, nevertheless, have been happening. I have a few projects coming up, and I'm eager to get to work. 
It's been a rough month, but we pull through as best as we can. I'm going to have to get another dancer, albeit temporarily, at least that's the impression I'm under. 3D has gone to Florida for a bit. I hate looking because it's hard to find a quality dancer who doesn't have this...attitude, but I gotta do what I gotta do.
I'll be dropping in on a few things this spring, just to say hey, lend a hand to some fellow AAEHH members, extend my reach a little. I'm also back on an endurance regimen, cuz I totally need it after slacking off due to the holidays and to stress. Handle your stress, yawl--do what worx for you.
Been putting in work on developing a monthly event. I'm hoping I can get this off the ground and get the type of people I'd like to have involved all-in. It's nice to have people who actually believe in what you're doing, and the vision you have.
Oh, I'll be starting a 25-day song challenge. Soo you might be hearing from me for the next 25 days, if I'm lucky...
