Crap! I missed a day! Here's a two in one. Also hoping everyone had a good Fourth!

Day 9: A childhood memory T.V. theme tune

Rocko's Modern Life. I STILL love this show, as dated as it is now.

Day 10: A song from one of your favorite albums

It feels a bit like I'm cheating since Alcehmy Vol 1 by Poets of the Fall is technically a greatest hits, BUT they did include two new songs. And while Can You Hear Me is just wonderful, the lyrics to No End, No Beginning just strike me so much deeper. I think its the "I'm secretly grateful you're sharing this moment with me" that hits me the hardest.

Mmm Poets.

nothing witty here tonight )

8. A song you used to love but now hate

Urg. That's difficult for me because there's so little that I actually "hate", and generally it takes me hating it from the start.

... I think this is kind of cheating because I can't honestly remember if I DID like it or not, but... in my defense, I was like. Four. I probably did like it until all the name jokes started cropping up.

867-5309 (Jenny) - Tommy Tutone

The 80's were a strange time... )

6. A novelty song

Nya Nyan Dance - UTAUloids

I STILL LOVE THIS VERSION BEST. Nyan Cat can go choke on a rainbow. Chibi UTAUloids are much cuter. Especially Tei-chan.

crappin' rainbows over here )

4. A song you can remember your parents listening to

Pretty Maids All in a Row - The Eagles

One of my dad's favorite albums when I was growing up was the Eagles: Hell Freezes Over album. There are so many songs I could pick just from that band alone, and most people probably at the very least know Hotel California (which was featured on the album as it was their reunion tour) but as much as I love that song... honestly my favorite is a toss up between New York Minute and Pretty Maids All in a Row.

And since I actually used this once in an RP setting as one character singing it to another in a lullaby... I'uno, this one just speaks to me a little more than New York Minute did when I was a kid.

Day 3! Wee!

3. A song that reminds you of a night out

I'm On a Boat - The Lonely Island

Okay, stay with me here. Just close your eyes and picture this.

A tiny 5'4" blonde girl in glasses, in a karaoke booth in Seattle, Washington, singing this.

It happened.

A couple of years ago [ profile] mellonemrys  and I went up to Seattle to visit my sister, Koto and go to a small anime convention called ChibiChibiCon. The first night there Koto rented a karaoke booth for us in downtown, which included getting us and our various friends and cohorts alcohol. About halfway through the night Koto saw that "I'm On A Boat" was on there and, giggling the entire way, put it in for her turn. And she did it. The whole song. Swears and everything. It was BEAUTIFUL.

The best thing?

The machine glitched and played it TWICE. By the end we were all in to it. It was ridiculous and so much fun.

did you know that "meme" comes from the phrase "memetic mutation"? )
jenioctavia: (Riiiiiiiight....)
2.  A song from the first album you ever bought.

Ahahaha... ohman... this. This going to date me.

The first album I ever bought... you ready for this? Are you?

The first album I ever bought myself with my own money was..

The soundtrack to SpaceJam.

Yup. I was thirteen. I WANTED the soundtrack to Dangerous Minds but it had that damn parental warning on it and I couldn't get it, so I settled for one of my other favorite movies which was, at the time, SpaceJam. Crazy, right?

Anyway... it wasn't a BAD album perse but it wasn't the best music either. Of course I think EVERYONE who was around during that time remembers how Fly Like An Eagle (remade by Seal) and I Believe I Can Fly were on the radio CONSTANTLY because of it. So... I'll spare those songs and pick something else.

I honestly liked the Monstar's Theme (Hit 'em High) a lot. It's one of the few off the album I still listen to besides the title song and Fly Like An Eagle. Plus the video isn't horrible! And yes I have it on iTunes now. :P I'm a dork.


Meme (How many people are gonna post a Rickroll on day 100?) )
jenioctavia: (Haruhi Slumps)
I know I said I was going to finish those entries about what happened to my mom a while ago, but my desire to write lengthy things kind of went the wayside when school started. But yay I'm back at LCC!

Anyway, I will continue some day, but for now, lets have a meme.

Jacked from [ profile] dandywonderous 

Day 1 - A song you know all the lyrics to

Ohgod I know so many... I think right now the ones I know the best are Poets of the Fall songs (which will probably get put on here a lot) just because I listen to them CONSTANTLY. And "Stay" is still among my top favorites by them (though "No End, No Beginning" is edging its way up there. God that one is beautiful.)

Aaand I can't find a lyrics video, so I'll just link to the official site for lyrics.

Just Say Yes - Ken Andrews

Every time I take a chance
This hesitation pulls me back
I'm finding out who I should be
I want to know the real me

I pick myself up off the floor
And realize just who I was before
I can't listen to the voice inside
That keeps on saying I should never try

Just say yes

E- Endless Summer Nights - Richard Marx

Oh please, take me there again

And I remember how you loved me
Time was all we had until the day we said goodbye
I remember every moment
Of those endless summer nights

No Fear - The Rasmus

No fear
Destination darkness
No fear
Destination darkness
No fear
(For the record, I was SO tempted to rickroll this. =D I totally have the song, and its under N. xD)

I Can't Decide - Scissor Sisters

Dancing jigs until I'm crippled
Slugged in drinks I won't get pickled

I gotta hand it to you, you play by all the same rules
It takes the truth to fool me, and now you've made me angry

I can't decide whether you should live or die
oh you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why my heart feels dead inside
Its cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride


One of These Nights - The Eagles

Oh, some one to be kind to in between the dark and the light
Oh, coming right behind you
Swear I'm going to find you one of these nights

Cannonball - Damien Rice

That I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to lie
Life, it taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

Take Me In - Bonnie Pink
And Take Me In, DJ Hasebe Remix

minareta doa o tataiteta

Take me take me in
Have nowhere to go
sono neko no kawari ni watashi o oite
Take me take me in
Have nowhere else to go
kono ame de subete o arainagashite shimaou

All The Way /4U - Poets of the Fall

So please remember that I'm going to follow through
All the way

All the way

Van Nuys - Sixx AM

Everybody gets high
Everybody gets low
Everybody gets bruised
Everybody gets sold
Everybody gets dark
Everybody unfolds
Everybody gets high
Everybody gets so low

And every one's eyes are blue
And every one's mouth is dry
And nobody wants to die
In Van Nuys
Van Nuys

I Want Nothing - Kerli

Faking it all of the time
Conscious it cuts like a knife
When will you start to realize
We don't have time on our side

There is more than meets the eye
Hits you right between the eyes

Any Other Way - Backstreet Boys

Since you drained all the color out of the sky
How am I supposed to feel?
It's like I'm living in some body else's life
Tell me it's not real

There, have fun, enjoy my random music, and get off my lawn you damn wippersnappers. *shakes cane at*
