the song I love the most... #1

Since yesterday's post was negative about the song I hate the most right now, I thought I should counter that with the song I love the most right now.

It's Hallelujah, sung here by the Canadian Tenors. I've heard this song in a couple of other places - on Shrek and on General Hospital (don't judge my viewing habits, please). I love it. They played it as part of the In Memory part of the Emmy's a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was great. I think it's lovely, beautiful, and all kinds of other warm and fuzzy adjectives.

Now, I just need to control how much I play it (obviously I downloaded it) so I don't get sick of it.

What's the song you love the most right now?


the song I hate the most... #1

Hate is a strong word. And maybe I don't hate this song, but I'm on the verge.

It sounds harmless enough - nice and upbeat music. But, the lyrics, on the other hand are about "the kids with the pumped up kicks who better run, better run, faster than my bullet." And that pretty much wrecked it for me... but, I did a little searching, and apparently the song is to "bring awareness to the issue of youth gun violence."

Even so, this is the song that is on the radio when I wake up. It's the one in my car when I leave for work. It's on when I get to work. And it's the song in my car on my way home from work... and probably by the time I get out of the car, as well. Rinse. Repeat. Day After Day. After. Day. After Day.

When I got in my car after work today, I had a headache. Then the first thing I heard was this on the radio.... Lovely.

And that is the song I hate the most -- today, anyway.

What's yours?


things that make me go hmm... #4

I was talking to a friend, who has two kids, on the phone tonight about a baby shower we're planning for another friend next weekend.

Friend: You're making a cake, right?

Me: Yes, I'm planning on it.

[we discuss flavors, even though it's obvious we'll be having chocolate]

Friend: Oh, I just remembered I have a nook I can bring if you want.

Me: What? (thinks "Nook?"... thinks "I already have a Nook...")

Friend: A nook - if you want to put it on the cake as a decoration.

Me: A nook?

Friend: Yeah - but if you don't need it, that's ok... you can do what you want.

Me: Ohhhh. A pacifier?  (just now realizes friend meant Nuk - a pacifier.) When I think of Nook, I think of my e-reader.

Friend: Haha - wow. We really do live in different worlds.

Me: Haha - apparently. But your kind of Nuk makes more sense for cake decorations.
Hmm... it's funny how your life can make you interpret things so differently than others - but we love each other anyway. :)
