  • Name that Lyric

    10 jan. 2008, 16h10m

    I know these kinda posts are lame and played-out, but fuck it, I made one anyway...


    30 random songs from your media player... You guess the Artist and Song title by reading a small portion of the lyrics. Choices are under the connections tab. Answer as many as you can! No cheating with search engines!! (Bold lyrics were already guessed)

    1. There's no heartache if you can afford everything delivered to your door.


    2. Away with these nightmares. Away with suburbia.

    3. Don't let it throw you off too far, because I'll be running right behind you.

    4. I smell your skin on the empty pillow next to mine.

    5. I can't believe what we've become. I'll leave without a trace.

    6. Let me turn it up and we'll play a little faster.

    7. I've gotta bust you out of here, somehow.

    8. Windows open and close, that's just how it goes.

    9. The more I scream, the more it seems, now I'm through.

    10. When the tide comes I'll take you away.


    11. Tonight, you've got me.

    12. A new tattoo. A lot more sex.

    13. I'm gonna carry on.

    14. You're lying through your teeth again, suicidal imbecile.

    15. You'd think this life would make me colder.

    16. You know that I could crush you with my voice.

    17. When you're looking for truth on the cover of a magazine, how does it feel when you find out what you're not gonna be.

    18. Back & forth, we sway like branches in a storm.

    19. Now I can breathe, turn my insides out.

    20. You were the best I didn't know I didn't have.

    21. I just don't understand how you can smile with all those tears in your eyes.

    22. Gotta green light, but you're going nowhere.

    23. Destined I am, to walk among the dark.

    24. I'll take your invitation if you take all of me.

    25. You've made yourself a bed at the bottom of the blackest hole.


    26. You said "the rain's the rain", that some air would be good for you.

    27. You want to play with my yo-yo?

    28. Glad for what we've got. Done with what we've lost.

    29. In that instant, it started to pour.

    30. I'm just a stupid fuck with brilliant luck.

  • I am finally waking up.

    4 mars 2007, 21h38m

    So last saturday I went to a Jack's Mannequin show at the Electric Factory in Philly. I can't even express how much it meant to me. I have always admired Andrew McMahon's very contemporary (in a poetic kind of way) writing style that I myself try to dabble in. Well, at the show I was able to meet him and it seems so odd to say, but I feel like I haven't been the same since. During the show I was front row and center, up against the barricade, being crushed by throngs of people who love him and his music just as much as I do, yet I still felt different. From where I was standing and from how his piano was situated, I was in his line of vision and seeing him looked down on the sea of raised fists before him, I made contact with his eyes and felt like I finally could get over the mental block that's been fucking up my writing for months. It gave me chills. Catching the setlist at the end of the show was a sign to me that I wouldn't be the same when I left that venue. The show moved me to the point of immense motivation and inspiration, hoping that I could effect somebody with my poetry even in a fraction of the way he moved me with his. Jack's and Something Corporate were incredible before, but they mean so much more than I ever thought a band could. My wall of writer's blocks has been taken down and for that I am forever grateful. The only thing that really keeps me up at night now (aside from the scribbiling of my pen against the paper next to my pillow) is the unfullfilled thank you I wish I could give to him. It's completely corny and drenched in melodramatics, but all I want is to just thank Andrew for writing songs that move me. Writing lyrics that mean more to me than anything I've ever read before. Writing words that keep this 21 year old up till 4 am at night, trying to create anything remotely worthwhiled. I hope one day I can let him know how those cramped, sweaty two hours in Philadelphia really sparked something in me. A flame I doubt will go out as long as I have these headphones to remind me of how great life can feel sometimes.

    So...kelly_xtina bought me Loose as a joke christmas present...and I have to say that I am actually enjoying it quite thoroughly. Not only do I love Say It Right (Feat. Timbaland) and Maneater, but I am totally digging Do It & Afraid (feat. Attitude).

    However...Shit on the Radio (Remember the Days) is still the best pop song of all time. :-D
  • I know the pieces fit.

  • Guess the songs

    25 juin 2006, 21h15m

    30 random songs from your media player... You guess the Artist and Song title by reading a small portion of the lyrics. Choices are under the connections tab. Answer as many as you can! No cheating with search engines!! Good luck!! (Bold lyrics were already guessed)

    1. There's a song on the radio that says, "Let's get this party started", so let's get this party started.

    2. Just say hello to the ground.

    3. The cowboy kills the rockstar, and friday night's gone too far.

    4. Your mother was born in December, on the one sunny day that winter gave up.

    5. Into the sand we're sinking, holding us back from breathing free.

    6. Simply change your destination from the diamond canopy.

    7. I've been assuming everything, hoping you'll soon mean everything.

    8. I'm just a guy who never tries. I'm just a stupid fuck with brilliant luck and sometimes a bright idea.

    9. This poison's my intoxication.

    10. The syllables and sounds just aren't sentences.

    11. Your taste still lingers on my lips.

    12. You're online with the feline of Avenue B.

    13. The attitude? That's the Philly in I.

    14. Did you exchange a walk-on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

    15. Take my security from me and maybe finally I won't have to know everything.

    16. Scream for a window about two feet wide.

    17. She fakes a smile a presses her hips into his.

    18. She wishes she were a dancer and that she never heard of cancer.

    19. I cannot believe in the one that I need.

    20. After the date I wouldn't go home with you, I wouldn't put my hands in the air for you.

    21. Hello? Is anyone there?

    22. Say it fits just right when last year's dress is just a little too tight. And when I cook him dinner and I burn it black, he better say, "Ooh, I like it like that."

    23. Jam another dragon down the hole.

    24. That's too slow. Go ahead and put that thing in overdrive.

    25. Here's a message!

    26. You're the only one breaking me down like this.

    27. The day begins to break, like the tears that run across your cheek.

    28. Angels with your broken wing, stop basking in our sin.

    29. The broken watch you gave me turns into a compass. It's two hands still point to the same time: 12:03, our last goodbye.

    30. So everybody put your best suit or dress on, let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once.

    Why is this song played more than any other?

    Any Man of Mine (36 times)

    Um...cuz I have an unhealthy addiction to American Idol
    and some of the really mediocre performances. I never actually saw this performance live (I saw it later online). I instead heard the commotion the next morning about Mandisa getting voted off...blah blah. I looked into it and read all about the different theories as to why she was booted...ranging from racism to her supposed homophobic statements to her just plain sucking that week on country night. Well, regardless, I downloaded her performance and I just find myself playing it over and over...trying to maybe figure out if her slightly subpar performace validated her much too early ousting from the show.

    #2. Do you have any memories with this song?
    Because of You (33 times)

    Aside from Lisa Tucker's utterly painful performance of the song on American Idol, there aren't any standout memories with this song. Val and I sometimes pick it apart and talk about how awesome it is...but then again, Val and I do that with nearly every Kelly Clarkson song.

    #3. When did you first hear this song?
    Moody's Mood For Love (32 times)

    I heard this beautiful piece of American Idol perfection during the semifinals. It is one of the cementing factors in my growing love for Elliott Yamin. Seeing him spit out the off-beat lyrics of this song was quite impressive and I am so incredibly glad that he rerecorded it for the AI cd that was just released.


    #4. What is your favorite part of this song?
    Wake Up(31 times)

    I honestly don't think I have a favorite part of this track. The whole thing flows like some sort of demented lullaby and Claudio's vocals are oddly gentle throughout the entire piece which is both haunting and beautiful at the same time.


    #5. What does this song represent to you?

    Hold Me Down (30 times)

    This song represents a guy trying to end a relationship with someone, even though he is not ready himself to end it. Throughout the entire piece he claims to still love the woman, and can't find a way to let her down and leave. A lack of communication built up stunting the growth of their love and ultimately left them with no way to discuss how they feel...it's so bad that he can't even figure out how to tell her that he wants to end it all.

    #6. What is your favorite line in the song?
    Stickwitu (30 times)

    Um...I love the lines where the Dolls make up slurred speech impetements by combining the syllables in easily pronouncable words in order to be edgy: "You know how to 'preciate me"..."I'ma stickwitu foweva."

    #7. Does this song remind you of anyone in particular?
    Hide And Seek (27 times)

    Val. Her and I have honestly spent HOURS discussing the lyrics and musical aspects of this song. HOURS.


    #8. If this song was a color, what would it be?
    I Will Follow You Into The Dark (26 times)

    Hmm...this song reminds me of a dream...so I would sa y a pale grayish blue. Not exciting...whatever.


    #9. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear this song?
    Somebody To Love (26 times)

    Right when I hear the beginning noted of this song, not only do I remember how much I love Elliott, but I anticipate the ascent and run he does at :19..."I take home all of my hard earned pay ALL ON MY OWN." Ug...he is amazing. I love Elliott Yamin. Oh...I am also digging the belting he does at :39. MMMmmmMmMMmMm.

    #10. How does this song make you feel?
    Bedroom Talk (25 times)

    It kind of makes me horny...the lyrics are so perverted..."I'm gonna tear your ass up like we just got married, and you're all mine now." I think they are hot though.

    I absolutely adore Elliott Yamin.

    END OF STORY.
  • Will you come back? It's all she wants to know.

    Ok, so I have been growing quite fond of Mae lately... The style of their music is so melodic and focused not on just one aspect of the music. Many bands seem to devote their entire attention to lyrics or to the music, and fail to strike a happy medium. With Mae though, they seem to hit the nail right on the head. Their music is not only driven by the superb guitar and bass work that ties in perfectly with the pounding piano (like in Breakdown) but they also craft quite genius lyrics that sound absolutely beautiful when sung in the harmonies that they seem attracted to.

    Right now, I think I am in love with Tisbury Lane...

    ...if you have never heard this song, go get it and listen to it on repeat. So great.
