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.
