One blog to rule them all
Welcome to my blog!

I would make some sort of clever introduction here, but most of us already know how blogs work; if you like me and like my writing, you might also enjoy my personal ramblings and assorted thoughts. If you don't like me, you're probably not reading this anyway. And if you're undecided in your opinion of me, I invite you to read as much or as little as you like and decide for yourself.

Please read on and, if you find something worth discussing, don't be shy about submitting a comment! *Bigsmile*

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 8




"Valerie"
by Amy Winehouse (d. July 23, 2011)
cover by Teddy Swims


Full Lyrics

Sometimes I look
across the water
I think
all the things
in my head
I paint a picture

I've missed the way you like
making a fool out of me

Why don't you come on over

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 7




"It's Time"
by Imagine Dragons
covered by Lulu Antariksa


Full Lyrics

It's time to build
from the bottom of the pit
right to the top, don't hold back

I don't ever wanna let you down
I don't ever wanna leave this town
'Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

I'm just the same as I was
now you understand
that I'm never changing who I am

The path to heaven runs
through miles of clouded hell

This road never looked so lonely

But I'm never changing who I am

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 6




"A Little Less Conversation"
by Elvis Presley (d. August 16, 1977)
remix by Junkie XL


Full Lyrics

Less conversation, more action
aggravation ain't satisfaction
more bite, less bark
less fight, more spark
open up your heart and
satisfy me baby

Close your eyes and drift through a summer breeze
come along and put your mind at ease
I'm tired of talking, let's start walking
don't procrastinate, don't articulate
it's getting late

Come on, come on
gettin' upset waitin' around
satisfy me

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 5




"How Will I Know"
by Whitney Houston (d. February 11, 2012)
covered by the cast of Glee


Full Lyrics

I know I lose control
         can't seem to get enough
                   how will I trust your feelings
                             how will i be deceiving

how will i say a prayer
         fall in love
                   think of love so bittersweet

why do i feel weak
         wake me, i'm shaking
                   there's no mistaking
                             what I feel

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 4




"No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn"
by Beastie Boys (1978-2012)


Full Lyrics

Foot on the pedal,
engine running hot

My job's a damn good time

City to city, I'm running
touring the nation
itchy trigger finger
I do what I do best

Ain't no faking
your money I'm taking
going coast to coast
while you're working nine to five

Another plane another train
Another bottle in the brain
Another girl another fight
Another drive all night

Tour around the world,
rock around the clock
Getting paid along the way,
'cause it's worth your while

Got a safe in the trunk with money in a stack
ice in the front, and Brooklyn in the back

Waking up before I get to sleep
'cause I'll be rocking this party
eight days a week

No sleep 'til Brooklyn

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 3




"Scream"
by Michael Jackson (d. June 25, 2009)


Full Lyrics

tired of injustice
kicking me down
the whole system sucks

in the shadow
you're sellin' out souls
abusin' victims

makes you wanna scream

you keep changin' the rules
while playin' the game

i might go insane

i just can't take it

stop pressurin' me
just stop pressurin' me
stop pressurin' me
make me wanna scream

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 2




"This Must Be The Place"
by The Talking Heads (1975-1991, 1996-2002)


Full Lyrics

Home

I feel numb,
the less we say the better

We go along, head wrong

Standing here beside me,
passing time

Home

I'm already there,
this must be the place

I can't tell,
we drift in and out

I'm just looking for a home,
the same space for a minute or two

Cover up the blank spots

"Resurrection Jukebox | Day 1




"Brokenhearted"
by Karmin (2010-2017)


Full Lyrics

This is more than the jones in my bones,
in a daze, I find it hard to sleep
Five minutes, ten minutes, now it's been an hour
I can't seem to let you go

You leave me brokenhearted, that's right
You leave me brokenhearted, tonight
Such a crime, had me inside out
I don't even think you know

Anything you wanna do,
everything you said,
maybe I was wrong

This kinda thing doesn't happen usually
I'm on the opposite side of it, truthfully

You leave me brokenhearted
Leave me brokenhearted, tonight
That's right

I can't seem to let you go...

"Barrel of Monkeys | Day 10




"Need You Now"
by Lady A
from Need You Now (2009)


This entry isn't so much about the song as the band and all of their misfortune with their name lately. For those of you who haven't heard, in light of all of the recent talk about racism and the ongoing legacy of slavery and the South, Lady Antebellum (and the Dixie Chicks) decided to change their band name to remove references to their Southern Roots. But while Dixie Chicks became "The Chicks" and both checked with and celebrated the fact that they share a name with a band from New Zealand, Lady Antebellum decided to change their name to "Lady A" without realizing that there was already a fairly prominent African American musician using that stage name... and then sued said musician over the name.

I'm not sure that's really the best way to prove that you're sensitive to racial tensions, but sure. You do you, Lady A. *RollEyes*

"Barrel of Monkeys | Day 9




"In My Head"
by Jason DeRulo
from Jason DeRulo (2010)


This is one of the most played songs on my iTunes, thanks in large part to the fact that I put it on repeat and then accidentally left it on all night. So while I can't claim that it's one of my favorite songs in the world, I do enjoy it from time to time. But probably not as much as my iTunes listening library would imply, which has it literally with hundreds and hundreds of plays.

So I guess you could say this was definitely my "most listened to" track of 2010. *Laugh*
