"God Blessed the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts is my pic for favorite song. There are so many! I'll be sure & let you know more of my picks as they pop into my head! Hope you're doing okay, JUNE!

Very cool. That Rascal Flatts song is a favorite of mine (although I am not a huge country girl) but it was the song that my little sister and her hubby danced to at their wedding so it always makes me smile.

Just email my your mailing address Valerie and I'll send out your $20 iTunes card ASAP.

I have to say... you all have great taste in music. With this playlist, I highly recommend that you just minimize my blog for the rest of the day and let all of the songs play through-you'll enjoy it I guarantee.

I did have a few that I could not put on simply because they would make my ears bleed if I did. Sorry Alan, but I could not add Pink Floyd's "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Grooving Together in a Cave" because I don't think any of the Six-Packers want to trip out on acid today and go crazy. Plus-that is the worst song in the history of songs, right before William Hung.

I also could not add anything by Britney Spears or Taylor Swift. I tried... I really did, but I just could not do it without vomiting in my mouth each time I went to click the "add" button. Please forgive me.

There were also a few that I could not find-I think only four of the songs were completely obscure and not known to most people in the world... but that is Okay-groove to whatever makes you happy man.

I did add a few of my own:

Follow You Home by Nickleback-which in my opinion is the best song ever. I listen to it no less than 5 times a day. The drums are sick, the base is genius, the guitar is hot and Chad Kroeger's voice drives me crazy... simply crazy. Mercy. This song reminds me completely of Carl, because he is a rockstar like that and it sounds like a lot of our fights.

Shattered by O.A.R. This is a great song... another voice that I love, and again, it reminds me of Carl.

You'll Accomp'ny Me by Bob Seger. I like the way he just tells her that one day she'll be his. No questions.

Misunderstood by Robbie Williams. If you have not heard any of his songs then you really need to search him out. I discovered him when we were in the UK and totally fell in love with his cheeky attitude. I thought I met him once in a bar in Germany... but it turned out that it was just a German guy who looked a lot like him-and I was really drunk. That was also the day I got my tattoo by a guy named "Gunther" and the day my friend Leslie bought a stocking cap that was in the shape of a chicken and everyone kept telling her she had a cock on her head. Ahhh... memories.

Gimmee Three Steps by Lynyrd Skynryd. How can anyone NOT like this song? It reminds me of my friend Sherry-she was singing it one New Years Eve just before she did a nose dive into my Christmas Tree. This is the same New Year's Eve that I discovered my friend Lori is a very affectionate drunk. ahem. I'll always and forever smile when I hear this song and it was a favorite of mine long before the Christmas Tree incident... it is just cool. Just try not to roll your shoulders while you listen to this song, you won't be able to do it.

Turn by Travis. You know why I love this song? Because years ago I saw the video and thought is was cool. That is it. Nothing special-it just stuck with me and I have carried it with me ever since. You never hear it on the radio, you may have never even heard it on the radio here in the States. It is another memory from our days in England. His voice is perfect.

Broken by Seether. I dig the drums in this... also I like his voice. It is the song I turn on when I am missing Carl and want to be sad. It is a good song to help you sink into a mood that we need to visit from time to time. You know what I am talking about--a sad that reminds me that I still feel even though most days I am numb. Phew--that was deep.

Okay... a few more messages for some Six-Packers:

Aunt Barb-I know you love "I'm Yours". I went to a talent show at our high school a while back and three guys got up and did this accapella. I thought of you and how much you would have loved it. They were awesome and that performance was better than the original recorded song.

Melissa-thanks for saying "No Rain" by Blind Melon. That is so you man.

Kelly-I have to tell you that it was very hard for me to put John Mayer on my blog... but for you I did. I don't hate him as much as I hate Britney or Taylor Swift so I gave in, but this will be the last time do you hear me?

Hobbit-I would have to agree with your assessment that Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" may just be the best song ever... if it weren't so bloody long. I do love it though-thanks for reminding me.

Joanne-Hello! How have I never found Carbon Leaf before? Thank you! Love them.

Quitecontrary- Sean Lennon? Really? Dead Meat? Seriously? Okay... sure.

CJ-I looked for your "A Woman To Love" song but only found the version from Enrique Iglesias and it is hot. I hope you like it... if not, too bad. Enrique is hot for a skinny guy.

Jaibee-I can't believe I put Aikon on here let alone Reliant K and that awful Pirate song... never question my loyalty to you. Sheesh.

Warren-I hope you don't mind, but I put your Chattanooga Choo Choo in a medley from Glenn Miller just because Glenn is a genius. I also did this for my mother because she wanted the 1812 Overture (I am sure she was hitting the boxed wine when she commented) so I thought I could appease her old and fragile bones with some Glenn. Thanks for sharing. We all know that my mother would be happy with any song from the movie "West Side Story" though. My dad would want something from "The Sound of Music." It is a miracle that I ever survived that house.

Cousin Steve-although you did not comment on your favorite song, I am sure it would have been some country crap that would have made me stick my head in the oven, but you will be happy to see that Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson made it on this playlist, you country loving freak.

FYI-the playlist is at the bottom of this page so if you want to find your favorite song or go listen to Follow You Home which will change your life, have at it.

That is it folks, and in the words of that skinny, short and irritating Ryan Seacrest... June Out.

I knew I should have left a comment, not because I missed out on the iTunes card, but because no one mentioned Big Head Todd and the Monsters! Our wedding dance was Soul For Every Cowboy.

Kimberly said...

Ok, so I just love this whole thread. I just got an itouch for Christmas, but I don't know what to add. So this was greeeeat! (as Tony the Tiger would say.)

Now, I am totally computer illiterate. Can I download this playlist to my itunes or ipod? Will it give me the songs? Or can I just play it on the computer? Inquiring minds want to know!!

Oooooh! Another Robbie Williams fan. =)

Something Beautiful got me through one of the worst summers in my life--the time I got the chicken pox and had to learn to cook for myself by trial and error. I emerged spotty and starved, but also singing.

Nothing beats Angels, though. Magnificent!

lolaberly said...

Excited to see that my suggestion made the cut! When I read the Britney/Taylor Swift bit, I did fear that I had gone too far!

And despite being a newlywed (7 months and counting!) I'm not judging you or your complaints! Love the blog and your sense of humor. :)

Floyd R. Turbo said...

I forgot to submit "If I Told You Had A Good Body Would You Hold It Against Me?" "I Went To Bed at 2 With a 10 and Woke Up At 10 With a 2" and "Dropkick Me Jesus Through the Goaslposts of Life".

Damn!

june cleaver said...

Kimberly, sadly... itunes will not let you download anything unless you pay for it-unless it is a cd that you are adding to your list. I suppose you could burn this playlist, but do not ask me how because I do not know about those things...

Now if you asked me how to make a Long Island Iced Tea-that I would be able to answer with no hesitation.

june cleaver said...

Aw Floyd, I may just have to go add those. Just because who doesn't want to listen to "Dropkick me Jesus"??? It's a classic.

june cleaver said...

Floyd, man you are lucky. I added "Drop kick me Jesus" and the Belamy Brothers... but I could not get Kenny Chesney to load Ten and Two (gag... I hate that short little bugger) so I replaced it with Happy For The Rest of Your Life by Jimmy Soul. I hope you're happy... you are so demanding. And my flawless thinking of you is ruined since you submitted all country songs. What is up with that?

Stacy.Make.Do, I couldn't get your Cowboy song to load-plus it was live and I don't like live recordings... but I do love Big Head Todd and the Monsters, so I added "Please Don't Tell Her."

love it.

:)

Floyd R. Turbo said...

June... Flawless... I'll actually take the lessened expectation!

I am one of the few West Texans who wears no boots, no Wrangler, drive a Honda Accord ( no pickup), and don't listen to much country. I loves me my guns though. Those are all novelty songs... exceptions... Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, bluegrass, and Cowboy songs in general. I will listen to anything just about except most (c)rap music. U2 is all-time rock favorite, but I listen to The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and Foo Fighter a lot too. Since I now sound hopelessly blah I'll end it with saying that my last fight was at a Metallica concert -- but even that was early 90s.

Kristina said...

You know, I really did minimize this blog today. That's sad. Great playlist, though!

Stacie.Make.Do. said...

Too bad about live version of Soul For Every Cowboy. I agree, I don't like most live recordings, including that one. Thanks for trying and for adding the other song.

In case you care, Big Head lets you listen to all of their albums on their website, bigheadtodd.com.

SFECowboy is on the album Sister Sweetly.

warren said...

Hey June, I responded to your comment over at my blog...the gist...I'd be honored!

pipsqeak said...

Thanks for the Nickleback song, I had to go check it out on Itunes and now its on my nano.

Don't know if you have seen the movie, P.S. I love you...and you should because its good (and Gerard Butler is FINE)...but a good rocky-folk song they played was called Galway Girl..I downloaded the one by The Town Pants because its live and the tempo is faster than other versions, which I like.

Your list is awesome, aww The Beatles just came on, reminds me of driving with my mom when I was a kid. : )

Kelly said...

Thanks June! LOVE the playlist! Old stand-by's and new favs discovered. This was a fantastic idea. I'll be adding to my ipod this week for sure. And I do appreciate your putting Mayer on your list...yes, I hear you loud and clear ;).

Jess said...

Hey Cris,
Ok so I scoped out the truck situation this weekend and my hubby has his shuffle hooked up to the dvd player. He said you need a cord (ask the geek squad and they will know which one) to run from the shuffle to your dvd player. Turn the volume on the shuffle all the way up and turn the radio to aux.

june cleaver said...

pipsqueak... Gerard Butler has been a long time swoon worthy man on the six-pack. it is a prerequisite that you must think he is beautiful in order to even read the crap I write!

Anyway-thanks for the suggestion-I added it.

Jess... thanks, I may just be able to buy a new digital camera instead of a iPod for my birthday because of your suggestions... back to the geek squad I go~

Kelly... you must know that I am worried about you if you like Mayer. Do I need to set up an intervention?

:)

Nicole said...

Hey June, thanks for making me feel famous or something by including MY favourites on YOUR muse..no other blogger has ever done that for me before! I'd send ya $, but our coloured Canadian currency wouldn't get you anything in the U.S of A! Tell ya what, next time you are on Canadian soil, you let me know! I'll treat you to a Tim Horton's coffee! And I promise you'll be hooked!

june cleaver said...

Nicole-my friend to the North... Tim Horton's coffee eh? Does it have liquor in it? I am trying an all-alcohol diet to lose weight, or to forget that I am fat. The problem is that I forget where I live and sometimes what my name is too.

Just curious.

Kelly said...

Thanks June, but no, that wont be necessary. Your fantastic playlist is all the help I needed. I'm on the road to recovery! ;) But please don't judge me on that one musical suggestion. I'm usually very eclectic in my music and believe the problem to be that I have been hormonal and consuming far too much cocoa for my own good. Anywho, that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!
