And Baby I've Tried To Forget You

It’s Monday and it totally sucked. It was not improved by the fact that the Yankees got rained out. Oh well. So let’s shuffle…as there is not much else to do.

Angel by Jon Secada - Probably not the best song to listen to in my current mood but the iPod Shuffle has a mind of its own. I love this song but it sure is depressing. It is one of those songs that in right mood you find yourself singing along, crying your broken heart, and then laughing at yourself for later (or so I am counting on). So see…every cloud has a silver lining. This is song that really nails the feelings that with come with trying to forget someone and being unable to. You know that you want to…but you just can’t and it sucks. And to make it even better…the best line of the song is the opening line. Best Line: “I can’t read the future but I still want to hold you close.”

You Never Even Called Me By Name by David Allan Coe – Oh does this song bring back some good memories. Don’t get me wrong…it is an absolutely terrible song…probably one of the worst songs ever to be honest but that is what makes it so damn entertaining. If I had a dollar for every time that I have heard this song butchered at a karaoke bar I could up and walk away from the CG and still be fine. Hell I have done it at least a dozen times myself. My favorite memory of this song at the karaoke bar involves my dearest friend who had consumed at least four too many double shots of Patron. The whole bar sang along during the chorus and the whole bar laughed their asses off as Todd fell off the stage. Good times. Maybe that is all I need…a night at the karaoke bar with a few good friends. I don’t know. I do know that the song has a good point. Best Line: “And I’ll hang around as long as you will let me.”

All You Wanted by Michelle Branch – For song with such simple lyrics I have to say that I really do love it. Maybe that is the key to it because some things are pretty simple. Some answers are right there, staring you in the face and yet we miss them because we think “It can’t be that easy.” Of course hearing this song reminds me that some people do not want to be saved and one must learn to accept that it is their own damn choice. Oh well. Best Line: “I wanted to be like you, I wanted everything so I tried to be like you and I got swept away.”

Right Now by Akon – Have I mentioned that I really dig Akon? His voice is slightly annoying but I still like him. I like his lyrics and his songs usually have a pretty good beat. Quite honestly I can’t really ask for much more than that. The good thing for Akon is that the way that I feel right now is that my expectations are incredibly low so he doesn’t have to do anything more than he is already doing to win me over. Again…yet another silver lining. And to think that several people accused me of being too negative today. I can’t imagine what on earth they are talking about. “Why can’t it be the way it was when you were my homie, lover and friend?”

Coffee’s For Closers by Fall Out Boy – Ok so I mentioned this song the other night. Big deal. I LOVE this song. Hell I love Fall Out Boy. Their concert is the only thing that I am looking forward to at the moment. Oh well. At least it is something that is sure to be awesome than something that has a chance of letting me down. As long as the band shows up and plays for more than 30 minutes I will be happy. In spite of some of the negative lines in the song I still feel a little better when I hear it. Perhaps it is because misery truly loves company. Nevertheless…it is a great song..While I am still hearing the line “I will never believe in anything again” in my head over and over again that is not my pick for the best line of the song. Once again tonight the best line of the song is the opening line which momentarily cheers me up. Best Line: “I can’t explain a thing…I want everything to change and stay the same.” I hear ya FOB…so help me I hear ya.

For the love of Bob Cat Bob this sucks.

I am lucky to have you as a friend Mo-ni-ca-Chi-cka! You are my girl.

I can't believe that you would bring that up! Wasn't I singing because I was heartbroken?

If laughing at my expense will cheer you than you laugh away my friend. I want you to cheer up more than I can say my friend.

Day or night, your sam is ready to listen when you are ready to talk.

I noticed that you were bummed out. Just think of Jeter and I'm sure that you will smile.
