I Like Where We Are....Here

Do The Shuffle!

I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab for Cutie (445) – The funny thing about indie music is that I am not typically a fan of it. For the most part, I find a bit too whinny and hippie for my tastes, with the exception of indie love songs. For some reason I am sucker for indie love songs. This song is probably my favorite of all indie love songs. It is almost a Gothic love song in the sense that it is a little depressing and yet tragically romantic, all in just over three minutes. I love the honesty in the first line. “Love of mine someday you will die.” Now if someone started off a conversation with that line by itself, it might be a little creepy and I might even wonder if it was some kind of threat. But the line is followed up with “But I’ll be close behind, I’ll follow you into the dark.” That is what turns a potentially creepy line to an awesomely romantic line. The rest of the song remains equally romantic in spite of the fact that it really does focus on the impending doom. It is not just the death itself that is creepy, but the fact that the “afterlife” is painted so bleakly. There is no promise of heaven nor threat of hell…it is simply darkness. It is easy to say “Hey I will meet you at the pearly gates” or “Hey your pyre or mine?” but it is another thing entirely to be like “I’ll follow you into the dark”. The uncertainty of the dark is what makes it amazing. Imagine having someone love you so much that much. That is what makes this song worth of being the #8 played song of all times on my iPod. Best line: “No blinding lights, no tunnels to gates of white, just our hands clasped so tight, waiting for the hint of a spark.”

Who Says You Can’t Go Home by Bon Jovi (168) – Notice first that I said Bon Jovi…not Bon Jovi featuring Jennifer Nettles. I really, really, really don’t care for the Jennifer Nettles version. Her voice annoys the shit out of me. Moving on....this is not one of the better Bon Jovi songs…but it is still pretty damn good. What I like most about this song is its ability to get everyone singing. You cannot listen to this song and not feel compelled to say “Its alright.” If you are going to have something stuck in your head all day, wouldn’t you rather that it be a positive line like this? When I listen to this song I cannot help but think about my Duke City days. While I never see myself living there again, I can’t help but call it home. I admit that I don’t go back nearly as often as I should and yet whenever I do I find comfort when there. Those are my streets. I cannot go anywhere in that town without recalling some memory. I feel safe because even though things have changed, it is still the town I grew up in. I know that it will always be there no matter where I go thus making it forever possible for me to always go home. One day (hopefully not anytime soon of course) I will go back home forever and I better be wearing socks. Best Line: “Spent 20 years trying to get out of this place, I was looking for something I couldn't replace.”
Two Pina Coladas by Garth Brooks (30) – You know this song isn’t any fun or even that good unless you have actually had at least two drinks. Being that I am not a fan of pina coladas….it would be anything else but I get the point of the song. I don’t even want to think of how many times I “set sail with Captain Morgan” in effort to try to forget my own heartache. Best Line: “So bring me two pina coladas, one for each hand, let’s set sail with Captain Morgan and never leave dry land.”

I Wanna Know by Joe (23) - Not a bad little R&B song. What Joe lacks in vocal talent he makes up for in sexy crooning. Quite honestly there is nothing spectacular about this song but I still enjoy it. I doubt that there is a woman alive who wouldn't. It is simple and sweet love song that makes me a melt a little bit. Now if this was sung by say...Joshua Radin and it would be all over. It is pretty tough to believe that all of the sweetness found in this song isn't total bullshit. Oh well. In the right mood it isn't a bad song to listen to. In my current mood it just makes me a little bit sad. Best Line: "I'd like to know what makes you cry so I can be the one who always makes you smile."


Faded by Soul Decision (20) - There really is something irresistible about boy bands. No matter how terrible a song might be...you can't help but like and this song is a perfectly good example of that. This really is a terrible song and I know on some level I should be a little bit offended as a woman yet I can't help dancing a little and singing along. I don't know much about the boys of Soul Decision but I am guessing that they have broken up since their "success" with this song. That's too bad really...as this song is actually pretty funny. How cool must they have thought they were to use the line " You stepped like my steeps the way we conversated"? Poor bastards. Yet as great as that line is, it is not my pick for the best line. Best Line: "Ever since you've been hangin' around I've been trying to figure out what I'm gonna say to you to get some play, yeah". You can't tell me that line doesn't make you laugh?

Somebody's Crying by Chris Isaak (241) - Now I was only like 13 (I think) when this song came out but that did not deter from developing what appears to be a lifelong crush on Chris Isaak. I remember buying the CD single of this song and listening to it over and over again for weeks. The funny thing is that I loved the song but had no idea what it was really about. I get it now and let's just say that it doesn't make it any easier to listen to now that I do. It is a simple song of longing and self-deception and yet it still manages to be overwhelmingly hot. I stand by my previous statements that it really doesn't matter what Chris is singing about...it just sounds hot. Add that incredible voice to his stellar looks and it really is no wonder that teenage Millie developed a thing for him. Best Line: "I know somebody and they called your name a million times and still you never came."

Here (In Your Arms) by Hellogoodbye (381) I don't care that no one else likes this song and I am not ashamed to admit that it is #10 in My Top 25 playlist on my iPod. It is a bouncy little love song and I happen to be quite fond of it. I love the simplicity of it. The song is about telling someone that you like to be with them and all of the reasons why. Before you knock this song, stop and think when the last time it was that you told someone that you liked being with them...then judge. In the meantime...get off my back about this song...you know who you are. Best Line: "Well you are the one, the one that lies close to me, whisper's "Hello, I've missed you quite terribly"".

Heaven by Warrant (237) - I was just about to sign off for the night when this song came on. I can't turn this song...ever. This is another one of those ballads that I hear and just stop and think to. It provokes the eye closing, back-tilting, back and forth rocking that I love about ballads as I sing along...even though it isn't a rock song...except for one line that always brings on all three...every single time I hear it. So that line is my pick for best line. Best Line: "I've got nowhere left to go and no one really cares I don't know what to do but I'm never giving up on you." It just barely nudges out the line "I don't need to be a superman as long as you will always be my biggest fan".

Tomorrow is the first of three games that will either result in Millie the Queen of Cloud Nine...or Millie the Raging Bitch. Pray for whichever you will find more entertaining just don't say that you were never warned.

My vote is for raging bitch but only because it is funny as all hell when you get super pissed off. I need more laughter in my life.

I think that the odds are against you being on cloud nine again anytime in the near future.

Girl you are such a glutton for misery. I will pray for you but I have to agree with the majority. Your Yankees are putting up a fight but it is just going to disappoint you even more in the end.

Millie Vanillie, as your dear friend I hope for the first but I am afraid that I have to agree with everyone else. Just remember that I love you no matter how much of a raging bitch you turn into.

Your friends and readers are brutal!!

I'll be the rebel and say that I hope that you will end the week on Cloud 9. It is funny when you are pissed but there is no better sight than seeing you smile.

BTW you got every line wrong in this blog. Here are the real best lines of each song:

1:If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

2:There's only one place left I want to go, who says you can't go home

3:Every line of this song sucks

4:I wish that I could take a journey through your mind

5:This song sucks so much

6:Give me a sign and let me know we're through if you don't love me like I love you but if you cry at night the way I do I'll know that somebody's lying.

7:Song sucks

8:I've got a picture of your house
and you're standing by the door.
It's black and white and faded,
and it's looking pretty worn.
