I like American music...
Share it...

Fox fur on my back, bow tie 'round my neck...

Just a few quickies...

Bulls
Chicago got Joakim Noah! Chicago got Joakim Noah! Yeah, buddy. You bring that bad ass bow tie and 'fro to the United Center, okay?

Joakimnoah

I must ask, though, what is it with Chicago pro sports teams and athletes from the University of Florida? I think half the Chicago Bears squad are former Gators.

Simpsons:
Hey look! It's Katie and me as Simpsons characters! Okay, I was being a bit overly optimistic about my physique. It's not quite that. But it will be sometime soon if I can get off my butt and in a gym. And I hate that the only goatee has no smile. I'm one grim lookin' mofo. Katie is hot, though. See? I told you I'd post a picture of her new hairstyle, didn't I?

Make your own at the Simpsons movie site and click on "Create Your Simpsons Avatar" at the top. Thanks for the tip, Dave!

Lyrical Challenge:
Okay, let's do this thing!

I was thinking of shaking things up a bit with some new twists, but the creativity is still lacking and I'm due at work soon. So let's do this just like last time, okay?

What I want to do is have all of you suggest lyrics for me for a post. I will pick out a few of my favorite suggestions and blog using them as the driving theme. Whether the post actually winds up being what you expect it to be is something we'll all discover together. If I only get a few suggestions, I'll eventually post about them all. If I get a ton, I will hold a vote like last time to give you some more input.

A few caveats...

  1. These must be real songs and ones I either already know or I can find and listen to easily enough. So, in addition to the lyric, I will also need the band name and song title. NO EXCEPTIONS.
  2. KISS - Keep It Short and Sweet. I try to keep my post titles to a single line on my blog. Don't send me the entire chorus. Just pick a single line from the song.
  3. Be creative; but don't frighten me, please.
  4. No DiVinyl's "I Touch Myself." 'Nuff said.

The posting schedule remains to be determined based on participation.

I will give you through the weekend to come up with ideas. Sound good?

The Simpsons avatar is too much fun. I will have to think about the song lyrics.

sue

Lyrics? Sorry... I love music but am horrible at lyrics. I'm the person who starts out with the first word of the line (or maybe the middle) then hums... :)

Love the Simpsons. Will have to check that out.

Scott

Well, good thing for me I have time at work and I think I came up with a couple good ones. Their my recent personal favorites. Here goes nothing.

1. "They're way too young, but I'm way too old to preach." Kings of Leon, Ragoo

2. "Tell you to pray, while the devils on their shoulder." PJ, World Wide Suicide

3. "Tonight I want a slut, will you be mine?" Nate Dogg, Shake That by Eminem feat Nate Dogg

4. "This is what you get when you mess with us." Radiohead, Karma Police

5. "I hate the ending myself, but it started with an alright scene." My Chemical Romance, Enchanted

Bre

That goatee needs some serious maintenance!

Ok - lyrics for you:

"I feel so foolish, I never noticed"
from "Something To Talk About" by the fabulous Bonnie Raitt

Elaine

I'm braindead today and have no inclination to start using my brain juices right now. I do like the SImpson characters though! I'm gonna have to check that out. Katie's hairstyle is soooo hot right now ;)

Karl

I'm with Elaine...brain isn't working enough to come up with lyrics. I did make myself into a Simpson, though. It'll be a while till I can post it, since my house is full of hot women right now.

Odie

Ooohh! I like the lyrics game.
"Living in a fisheye lens,
Caught in the camera eye." Limelight (Rush)

"But do I really feel the way I feel?" Walking in Memphis (Marc Cohn)

"I have no fear of falling, but I hate hitting the ground" Fear of Falling (the Badlees)

"Cause just like the music's sayin' you gotta take chances
Go ahead just do it and trust yourself" The Motown Song (Rod Stewart)

I could go on forever, but I'll stop with these 4. Have fun!

Bec

Like your Simpson's. Nice. 5 think these may appear on everyone's blogs over the next couple of days. OKay lyrics. Whacking on the iTunes as we speak!

"If you want me I'll be in the bar" - A Case Of You, Joni Mitchell
"I need you so much closer" - Transatlanticism, Death Cab For Cutie
"Even the angels are losing sleep" - Angels Losing Sleep, Our Lady Peace
"I wanna be a cowboy, baby" - Cowboy, Kid Rock
"Feels just like it should" - Feels Just Like It Should, Jamiroquai
and finally (just because)
"Ging Gang Goolie Goolie Goolie Goolie Watcha" - Ging Gand Goolie, Anon.

The Exception

Love that Simpson's thing!

As for the songs - (which is a truly fun idea)

She's got a way about her (Billy Joel)
"I've got friends in low places..." (Garth Brooks)
(and I am not meaning the titles but the lines themselves)

God Bless Texas (is this one you can work with)) (Little Texas)

Swallow it down (Jagged Little Pill)
Sometimes I think about what might have been... (Little Texas again - I need to get over it)
Wise men say (Elvis)
I think to myself... (Louise Armstrong "Wonderful Day)
No Where Else that I'd rather be... (On My Way, Brother Bear Soundtrack)

Baby Got Back

L.A. Daddy

I was so bummed my Buckeyes lost their freshman phenom to be the first pick in the draft. Oh, well... maybe we'll get another first rounder in the next century.

Nat

Ok, hope I didn't miss the deadline. I have tried to keep them short...

Like sugar the guests are so refined. (Bushleager Pearl Jam)

Better take off that fake Versace (Black Mambo, Angel and The Mambo Cats)

Yes, it's true that I have seen some naked men. (Billy Bragg, Warmest Room.)

(Any of the following lines would work.... )

When I die I want no part of heaven (OR)
I will not do heaven's work well (OR)
I pray the devils come to take me away (OR)
To stand in the fiery furnaces of hell. (OR)
(Youngstown Springsteen. )

If I had your faith that I could make it safe and clean (The Cure, Head on the Door.)

She was old and she would have died anyway. (Sweet and Tender Hooligan - The Smiths)

I'll be a pharaoh soon. (Sonic Reducer, Dead Boys.)

You've slipped beyond my hands (It's Ok. Dead Moon.)

I think that may be enough...

Dagny

Sorry but I'm completely in a 70s/80s kind of mood. Mostly 70s. And so after some thought, I present my baker's dozen.

1. "Straight down the middle until next Thursday." Depeche Mode - "Get the Balance Right"

2. "And I can sense the hours slipping by." Depeche Mode - "Fly on the Windscreen"

3. "County fair in the country sun and everything is cool." Sly Stone & the Family Stone - "Hot Fun in the Summertime" (Yes, I have finally gotten over my Depeche infatuation. Instead I channeled the second song I remember singing to on the radio.)

4. "I'll never be untrue." Al Green - "Let's Stay Together"

5. "Go underground, young man." The Sylistics - "People Make the World Go Round"

6. "But the hangman isn't hanging." Steely Dan - "Do It Again"

7. "And I've been in the Washington too." Steely Dan - "Show Biz Kids"

8. "I don't want to feel that I'm in the wrong place to be real." Earth, Wind & Fire - "Reasons"

9. "Look at where we've been." Barry Manilow - "Daybreak" (As I listened to this one, all I could picture was Serial Mom.)

10. "They'll tell you a lie with a Colgate smile." Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band - "Cherchez La Femme"

11. "Leave your worries behind" Heatwave - "Grooveline"

12. "I want to be there in my city." Journey - "Lights"

13. "Tell me that this world is no place for the weak." Joe Jackson -- "Look Sharp"

August

My suggestions for a lyric:

"She's got the Jack" ACDC

love ya, mean it! bye!

kapgar

Photoshop. I'm cool like that. ;-)

crap, I know I'm late, but I'm tossing my suggestion out there anyway...
