Wistward Ho!

Wednesday, November 16, 2005

So it's Wednesday, and I just need to get right back in the swing of things so it's time for a Wednesday wist!

So 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. Billy Joel - We Didn't Start The Fire:

"We didn't start the fire. It's was always burnin' since the world's been turning. We didn't start the fire. No we didn't light it but, but we're trying to fight it."

Ok, who hasn't tried to sing all the words to this song? Yes, tried being the operative word there. I remember this being such a popular song way back in the day the local paper actually printed the words to it. My cousin and I had sat down and listen to a tape of the song over and over to try and write them all down ourselves previously and got pretty close ;O) Gotta love it through, the recent history of the world all wrapped up into a fun little dity.

2. 2 Pac - Changes:

"I see no changes. Wake up in the morning and I ask myself: 'Is life worth livin' or should I blast myself?'"

"I'd rather do back to the way we played as kids, but things have changed, that's the way it is..."

Yes Virigina, even Gangsta Rappers have consciences. There's a lot of things wrong in the world and no one's going to change them unless we work together right? And who doesn't wish we could all live like most of us did as kids? Just go out and play, have a good time. Oh yeah, there's that whole responsibility thing. Damn! He he, 2 pac was song 2. hehehe. Yup. I'm lame.

3. Bon Jovi - Blaze of Glory:

"You ask me if I've known love, and if I know what it's like to sing songs in the rain. Well I've seen love come, I've seen it shot down, I've seen it die in vein. Shot, Down in a blaze of glory, take me now, but know the truth. Cause I'm going down in a blaze of glory. Lord, I never drew first but I drew first blood I'm the Devil's son. Call me Young Gun."

Oh man did my parents regret buying me this CD along with my first personal CD player. I listen to this CD and sang along to this song so much they threatened to take it away. heh. I found out years later mom actually thought the singing was good, but even the most loving parents get sick of hearing the same song over and over ;O)

4. The Corrs - Breathless:

"Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless. Tempt me, Tease me, until I can't deny this loving feeling. Make me long for your kiss. Go on, go on.

Well screw you NOMAD , like I wanted a happy go lucky lovey dovey song right now. Play this one again when I have someone worth playing it about! Catchy tune normally though.

5. Dave Matthews Band - Don't Drink the Water (Live at Red Rock):

"I live with my justice, And I live with my greedy need. I live with no mercy, And I live with my frenzied feeding. I live with my hatred, And I live with my jealousy. I live with the notion that I don't need anyone but me

Don't Drink the Water, Don't Drink the Water, Blood in the water, Don't Drink the Water"


Pretty much any Dave Matthews reminds me of a friend of mine from Michigan I unfortunately haven't heard from in years. She was a Michigan Statey I met when I use to hang out a college community website. We saw DMB live here in the cities, but unfortunately Dave was sick and it wasn't the best of shows. Good music though. Miss chatting with that girl. If any of you Michiganders know a 4'10" Spartan named Holly let her know I still have her rings to send back! Love the song, haunting melody. You more feel this song than listen to it.



So there you have it another Wednesday Wist is passed into the archives. Yet another odd collection of song from the Chief. I do still need to do some updating of the music. What are some of you people's favorite songs lately? Gimme something good to listen to!

Upcoming posts: Slacker's Life States (The scale of happy to crappy and more), Slacker's Rules for Women, Slacker's Dating History (This one will be epic people, don't expect it for a good week)

What a great Wednesday Wist! I am liking the songs you have here and am trying to picture you belting out "Blaze of Glory" over and over. ;) that's awesome. I also remember trying to memorize the lyrics of "We Didn't Start the Fire"...great song!

Ohhhh. "We didn't start the fire?" I'm totally downloading that right now.

And I love "Don't Drink the Water." I think every person in the U.S. has at least one college or early 20s memory associated with DMB. I have multitudes.

Awesome Wist.

P.S. I love "Young Guns."

Finally a decent song - that one by DMB is one of their only ones I can stomach. I like "Crush" a lot too.

I can never participate in Wednesday Wist, since i don't have an ipod or a playlist on my computer. I know, I'm stuck in the dark ages. But "We Didn't Start the Fire" is a classic. And I do know all the words!

Pieces - So you're a hip hop girl then eh? ;O) And it's a Nomad thank you!

Amber - Yeah DMB is totally a collegiate staple. I love the movie too, The character Billy the Kidd is funny.

Cap B - yeah Crush isn't bad. DMB is funny like that, a lot of the songs are so diverese most epople can find one or two of his sings they like and some they hate.

Esther - Well, you could always listen to the radio and blog about the first five songs taht come on...
