I've been tagged

Well I’ve been tagged – I might be beginning to feel like a real blogger with an audience now (thanks baseballmom). 7 songs that run around in my head – geez and I heard such a funny term for this a couple of weeks ago, but thanks to the mental-pause, of course that is irretrievable now. So to this list… (apologies in advance if this causes you to scream out later that you must must must get this song out of your head)

1. Mickey – I can barely hear the stupid word/name Mickey without this gem getting stuck for days on end (it will be stuck now for sure)
2. (I am) Ironman – of course only the chorus, and not even all of that!
3. Oh Pretty Baby or Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You (can’t get a for sure title here) – REMEMBER I HATE love songs – my husband will get this puppy stuck in his head run around singing it for days and then pass the curse to me.

Geez this sucks, everytime I finally get far enough through the song to figure out the title… then it’s stuck and I can’t get it out to get a new song

4. Ohio (Come Back to Texas) – sort of ironic for a Colorado girl

Now I’m booting up the iTunes for a quick read of the songs there, because I know there are at least a couple dozen songs that play on loop in my brain – and it’s just not coming to me today.

5. Steve McQueen – and I do like to have a fast machine!
6. Ruby Tuesday – there isn’t a good reason, except that I say choose-day instead of Toos-day and it makes my kids giggle at me **update from link adding... rofl @ Mick lookin all sexy, ewwwwwww**
7. (the Shit) Hollaback Girl– (Gwen Stefani) – does this really require explanation? B-A-N-A-N-A-S
8. Eminence Front – absolutely the best of the 80’s Who
9. Crazy Mama – J.J. Cale (this one you might need to check out – I used to sing it to my mom on Tuesdays after she had been out with the Tuesday Girls drinking Martini’s and playing cards)
10. The Marine Hymn
11. Comet – you know the Comet song

Comet, it makes your teeth turn green

Comet, it tastes like gasoline

Comet, it makes you vomit

So get some Comet, and vomit, today

12. Will the Circle be Unbroken? (I listened to the Opry a lot growing up)
13. Rawhide

Oops… it was supposed to be 7, but I can’t possibly edit it now that I’ve done the work for 13 and I know there are so many more. So, the only cure for me is to actually find the damn song and listen to it all the way through, this can present difficulties if it’s a song I hate… but I have managed. Occasionally I can drown it out by just simply listening to constant music (not much of a problem actually since I tend to pretty much have music on all the time anyhow – but there are times when I’m stuck with someone who is intolerant of music in general, strange very strange.

I also want to say that the biggest problem I have is getting a hook/riff stuck and then I can’t remember exactly which song it belongs to because it’s not the lyrics just the music!

I guess the appropriate thing now would be to tag someone... so Moosema and Jen, you are both tagged! (I love this, two other musicians, they should come up with some dandies)

Wow... I've never been tagged before. How fun!

I'll have to think about this. I'll do it later this afternoon.

OH Lawdy, this is going to hurt. Hurt many, many people. :) But mainly me.
Thanks for the tag!
