Big Sigh

After a week of enjoying beautiful sunshine and warm weather it is raining. Add to the rain a very high chance of snow storms. I am so depressed that I can't even work up the strength to rant and rave.  So instead I am listening to what Willow calls cerebral music and working up a great case of the blues.

It is all very awesome.

Want to join in on the fun?  Shoot me a comment of your favorite, "I'm to sad to deal with life song."  I will try to track the video down.  By the end of the day we will have the ultimate today could have been better song list.

Fun right! Okay, whatever it gets me through the day so come on join in.

Here is my first choice and the song playing on my computer right now.

Joshua Radin, "The Fear You Won't Fall" if you are a Grey's Anatomy fan you may recognize it.

Oh and if you have a song that makes the blues run away. Makes you jump up and boogey hey throw it in maybe it will chase the snow away.

Songs are being posted below this post.

My fav happy song is Don't Worry Be Happy. I love this song. I have it on my ipod and I could listen to it over and over.

If you want to dance... well, then you need some EMF - Unbelievable!

If you want to chuckle in slight horror that someone would string together words that obviously don't belong together (yep, that sentence is miserable), then you need Love Me Dead. I can't remember who sings it... but it isn't the nicest of songs. However, when a song begins with "Love me cancerously," you know it is a classic.

I know that you are missing the sun and warmth that you enjoyed while here. Guess what, we are missing it too. Today we are overcast, coolish, and expecting a dust storm. See, you don't miss choking on the air, do you?

Okay. Don't make fun, and I don't think there is a video. But the song that I absolutely love, love, love is called "Whatever Happens I Love You" by Morrissey.

It's not a happy song, but it gets my mind off of whatever I am sad about and gets it on, well, ummm, something else. :)

Oh, if you really just want to wallow is despair, then you need some "Everybody Hurts." Isn't that REM? Maybe it was Depeshe Mode.... all I know is that about 4 measures into the song and I am nearly suicidal. Uff... painful little ditty.

If you need another song to chuckle, then I highly recommend "Girl with the Wandering Eye" by the Rugburns. The Rugburns are not for the faint of heart... if you are not careful, they can be exceptionally profain. However the lyric, "I made love to the girl with the wandering eye -- I think my baby's got a wandering eye -- hope my baby's gonna stay for a while." is funny on so many levels.

PS -- Russ would say you really shouldn't listen to my recommedations. HE finds the Rugburns too profain, and he has the biggest potty mouth I know.

PPS -- I am not the biggest Jewel fan, but the lead singer of the Rugburns wrote Jewel's break-out hit (I think the title was 'You Were Meant For Me'). Well... I think they co-wrote it. He sold her the rights to the song for a little, and she made MILLIONS with it. Not a bad deal for her at all.
