C'Mon Baby, Let's Do the Wist!

Wednesday, November 30, 2005

Long like the Pudgy Checkered man!

Anyway, it just happens to be Wednesday, and I have my MP3 player going, so time for the Wednesday Wist it would be!

In case you're not familiar:

How do you participate in Wednesday Wist? You take whatever music player you use, put it on shuffle, grab the first 5 songs and write what that song makes you remember. If it's a new song...and you can't relate it to a memory....do you like it? Leave a comment if you do it on your site and if you don't have a site, comment your wist here! Oh...and feel free to comment about my songs as well!!!

1. Jewel - Hands:

If I could tell the world just one thing, it would be that we're all OK. And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful, and useless in times like these. I won't be made useless, I won't be idle with despair. I will gather myself around my faith, for light does the darkness most fear."

It's a pretty simple message. Gotta have faith. Be it in you God or gods, or simply in other people. People who lack faith in anything but themselves are rarely happy people. At least in my observations...

2. Pink - Family Portrait:

"I ran away today, ran from the noise, ran away. Don't wanna go back to that place, but don't have no choice, no way. It ain't easy growin up in World War III, never knowin what love could be, well I've seen. I don't want love to destroy me like it did my family."

This doesn't hit that close to home for me like I'm sure it would for some. I have a pretty good family even if my dad and I have to struggle to get along sometimes. Things got rough for a while before I left for college, the D word even came up. But they're back to decent now. It would have to be rough on a younger kid though.

3. Orbital - The Box:

Can't really give you any lyrics for this one since there aren't any. Just William Orbit doing his thing layin down some good tunes. It has a kind of spooky, sci-fi feel to it. Good beat, not real fast, but keeps ya going.

4. Nirvana - Heart Shaped Box:

"Hey! Wait! I got a real complaint. Forever in debt to your priceless advice."

I remember trying to actually figure out if there was some sort of message in this song. I'm fairly certain there's not. I just like the guitar riff in this one. Fun to listen to.

5. Aerosmith - Janie's Got a Gun:

"She had to take him down easy, and put a bullet in his brain. She said 'cause nobody believes me, the man was such a sleaze. He ain't never gonna be the same."

A couple years of homework were made a little more tolerable by this band. At night, up in my room jammin to "Pump" and other various Aerosmith CDs. A little tunage un the background always made that homework go by a little better.

OK, I'm off, got a huge project to take care of. Keep and eye out for the new Slacker's Spotlight tomorrow or Friday!

Miss Tude - Use the radio. Tune to your favorite station, I think that should be a pretty decent alternative.
