So I know that it is Tuesday and I should have shuffled last night but I didn't not. What can I say? The excitement of two playoff games and one Monday Night Football game plus the fact that Crazy Taxi was paying triple points and cash last night kept me away from the blog. So I will make up for it tonight because I cannot get comfortable because of my knee. So let's get started.
Forever by Mariah Carey - I had forgotten about this song until the evil genius that is iTunes Genesis recommended it. There is nothing spectacular about this song lyrically or musically but that's okay. Not every song has to be excellent to be enjoyable. It is a sweet song to the one who got away. Vocally it is not Mariah's best song but the fact is that it is well sung and I enjoy it. Well done Genesis...it was worth the $0.99 to have it on the iPod. Best Line: "If you should ever need me unfailingly I will return to your arms and unburden your heart."
Walk On Water by Eddie Money - I swear that Eddie Money was under appreciated in his time. Every time I hear one of his songs I am reminded that he had a pretty damn good voice. This is not one of my favorite songs by him...it is still pretty damn good. When I heard it just now it actually made me feel pretty guilty. It is not fair to doubt the love of someone that you love. This song talks about mistakes that have been made and the fact is that things are bound to happen in any relationship...big things and little things. It made me promise myself to keep that mind because it really is silly to get upset over a little thing like not getting to talk to someone when planned. The best line of the song is also the opening line so that makes it even better. Best Line: "Well if I could walk on water and if I could find some way to prove, if I could walk on water would you believe in me? My love is so true."
Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits - This song recently became the #1 played song on my ipod. It is hard to point out one single reason why I love this song so much...because everything about this song works. It is so good that I never get sick of it and I never fail to smile when I listen to it. It is such a romantic song that is wonderful because it is real. What can I say...it is one of the best songs of all time...in my humble opinion. It is hard to pick the best line because so many of them are great. Perhaps it is the fact that this song understands that "the timing is wrong". Perhaps it is the sexiness of the challenge "You & Me Babe...how 'bout it?" It is probably the fact that it has one of the most real and romantic lines in a song ever with "I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you, can't do anything except be in love with you". Whatever it is about this song...it melts my heart every time I hear it...and that is a good thing. Best Line: "The dice were loaded from the start and I bet and you exploded in my heart." Great song...truly is.
What the hell is happening in the world of baseball? There is no reason that the Dodgers or the Red Sux should be trailing 3-1 and yet they are. I can handle the disappointment of the Dodgers not going to the World Series as long as the Red Sux are also watching it from their couches. The good news is that it looks like they will be. I just hate the Red Sux so much.
As long as Boston doesn't win the ALCS... I am good. Either way...I am working on my "Let's Go Phillies" chant because I will cheer from them regardless of who they play in the championship.
