the one where he admits something


Day 13 – A song that is a guilty pleasure.

1 word: Spicegirls

Don’t worry, my taste has gotten better over the years. Every once in a while, I’ll annoy Crystal and play both their albums.

the one where he hates


Day 12 – A song from a band you hate

Crystal is turning me into a music snob. I know what I like, and know what I hate. This is from a singer that, while catchy is freakin annoying. I can’t believe that I’m posting this on my blog.

Remember people, its down the street, not across the street if you want to kill yourself after this song.

the one where he falls asleep


Day 10 – A song that makes you fall asleep.

I don’t listen to music when I go to sleep. I like to have it quiet. So I’m going to skip this one.

Day 11 – A song from your favorite band

Favorite Band of the moment?

Makes me smile every time I hear it.

the one where he busts a move


Day 09 – A song that you can dance to

This will be a simple day of memes. I cannot dance, so there is no song out there that makes me dance. Simple huh? Wow I answered that in record time and under 50 words.

In other news I got my shoes for the wedding, then I talked to tech support, and I got my shoes for the wedding the next day. is pretty rad. I ordered the wrong size shoe, so I did the web chat that is on their website. Within 5 minutes, I had a return UPS label, and a new pair had been ordered. And shipped next day. So yeah I was surprised that literally 24 hours had passed, and my shoes had arrived. I wish the whole internet was like this. If it was, I’d be in trouble from ordering things all the time.

This weekend has been all about relaxing. Had a couple drinks last night, and Crystal mixed her own after the first one, and mixed it to strong for herself. I had to giggle about that. Had a good night. It was a relaxing morning and afternoon. Hopefully the relaxing will continue on into the evening. I just put on a pot of tea, so that should help me with my cough that I’m trying very hard to get rid of.

Ok, back to surfing the net. I’m just waiting for the tea to steep.

the one where he has the skills


Day 08 – A song that you know all the words to.

I have two songs that I still know all the words too, even after all these years. And trust be it truly has been years for this first song.

The second one they seem to play at about 6:25ish almost every morning on the way into work. Its terrible, because it such a slow song, and at that I’m I’d love to be more awake, considering I’m driving.

Actual as I’m typing this I keep thinking of more and more songs that I know the words to, but I won’t bore you with the details. Just know, that deep down, I has teh skills to compete.

the one where he was there, mostly


Day 07 – A song that reminds you of a certain event

Sept. 11 2001. Day one of my Rhode Island vacation. The place, Providence, RI. the time, around 8am. Crystal and I wake up and turn on the tv, and see the first tower smoking. There no crawl or any ads on the tv, we figure that they are domolishing a building, we watch.

We watch the plane hit the second tower. I call my mom, she’s in hysterics. She thinks Rhode Island is Long Island. I explain where I am, and she calms down. At this point we’re tired of the news coverage, and I just want to enjoy my vacation, so we decided to go to the beach. These are the songs that come on the radio.

Crystal hears this and starts laughing right away. We turn it up and drive around with it blasting. Then this song comes on, and I think its the unofficial start of the Gulf War part 2: the Electric Bboogaloo.

the one where he says something, somewhere


Day 06 – A song that reminds of you of somewhere.

Hmm, this is difficult. I think it ties back to Day one, with my favorite song, that reminds of of a place. I’m reminded of my first job out of school, which goes together with my first apartment after living with room mates for a few years.

But lets see if I can actually find a song…


Its not a song but a full album. The year, 1995. The place, Cadet Camp Whitehorse. The album, Jagged Little Pill. I think my friends and I basically wore out the CD. It wasen’t an angry time for us, persay, just a time in our lives where everything was changing. We had graduated high school, and this was our last summer together, before people went away to university. Its a great album. I think her best. Here’s a song:

the one where he has a memory


Day 05 – A song that reminds you of someone.

It was probably 1993 or 1994, and I was at Spookarama, a dance on Halloween for the teens of Yellowknife. Basically put on in a giant hanger by the RCMP to keep us teens out of trouble on Halloween. Its a good time if you like dancing. I went with a group of friends because it was free. Because my parents couldn’t afford to give me money to see a movie. Besides, movies are only two hours, this lasted 4 or 5 five hours.

It was the last song. A friend asked me to dance. It was the first time I ever danced.

Course I hate the song now. if it comes on the radio, I change the channel. its too damned long. And the lead singer. Terrible!

The other one (I just totally had to text Crystal, because she’s a musical rain man. I gave her the WRONG lyric, and she still told me the name of the song and the singer!) Totally reminds me of Crystal, I played the song for her when she was in Canada, and when she left, I rode back to my apartment on the SkyTrain, listing to this song and crying all the way home.

Even after all these years. I heard the first couple of bars of the song, and all the feelings I felt on that ride home came rushing back to me. Profound sadness, and happiness at the same time.

Funny how songs can do that.

the one where he’s sad


Day 04 – A song that makes you sad.

So I just deleted like a huge paragraph because I was thinking of the wrong song, and had to quickly back track to find a different song. There’s not really a song that makes me sad. There’s depressing songs, but for some reason, I really can’t think of songs like that. There’s slow melancholy songs that are filled with hope. But maybe I’m thinking to much into this.

So yeah, now on to the task of finding a song that makes me sad. This could prove to be difficult, I think.

So let me get back to you on this one. I may revisit this day after the 30 days of music is over. I really honestly can’t think of a song that makes me sad. I feel like I have failed this day.

the one where he’s happy


Day 03 – A song that makes you happy.

Wow that’s a good question. What song does make me happy? That’s difficult for me to answer, I think. I don’t really know. Its is a stereotypical “happy” song, or am I “edgy” and choose a downtrodden song for me, to feel better about myself. I don’t know. But as I write this I think I found the song that makes me smile each time I hear it.

Back story. I was working as a systems administrator. It was my first job out of tech school, and I was listening to Capital FM out of London. I always missed what the title of this song was, but always spun in my chair a couple of times when I heard the song.

So without further adieu, here it is:

I like the Fatboy Slim remix of it, because its just a little bouncier.
