Day 19 is the first song alphabetically in my iPod/iTunes.
Since the iPod is far more accessible for me right now, here it is. (I like that this day is quite a no brainer.)
First on my playlist is Counting Crows.
Who doesn’t love that song?
I remember hearing this song while I was still in Convergys. I really like this song and then Dylan just started singing it out loud, and I realized that he has all the lyrics down. Hahahaha.
Good times. :)
I hate myself for missing the last four days of this challenge. Be ready because I am so making up for it right now!
Day 17 is a song that makes me want to dance.
Mind you, I don’t dance. I never dance. I hardly dance. Dance makes me itchy. Dance makes me iffy. Dance pains me, and I don’t dance. I once threatened a coworker (and a superior at that!) actual physical harm just because he wanted me to join this dance thing here in the office. No no no no no no no no no no no no no no. I do not dance.
The only instance I remember dancing was when Dylan bravely pulled me to my feet and started dancing with me. I can’t not dance with him. It’s Dylan.
I have to admit though, this song kinda makes me wish I dance more.
I still like the first one best.
Day 11 is a song from the soundtrack of my favorite movie.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been told by some — Dylan –that my favorite movie, Closer, is too morbid. I’ve always found it fascinating. The casting was perfect. I didn’t think that I’d ever see Natalie Portman become a stripper or Jude Law become a dick. I mean, he was quite a dick in Alfie but in this one, he was more like a wimpy dick. But still hot. And Clive Owen? Oh wow. Fantastic delivery and acting. Julia Roberts was almost forgetful until that honesty scene in their house.
I love love love this movie. Especially the opening and closing credits.
The song is true, fitting and endlessly haunting. You cannot deny the poetry that just happened there.
Usually, I would close with a photo of the artist — in this case, Damien Rice — but it’s my favorite movie! Hence, it ends with the poster.
