You actually LISTEN to the lyrics?!

Every few months or so, I put together a playlist and burn a CD.

Then I listen to it until I know all the words to all the songs.

Then I listen to it s'more.

I sing at the top of my lungs in the car.

At some point, I actually GET what the songs I chose are about.

Like, I ACTUALLY HEAR the words!

(The list is chosen by sound and mood...notsomuch content...)

The strange thing is, all the songs usually have a common theme.

I don't do it on purpose.

But when I look back at what was going on at the time I made the list, I see it in the music.

Por Ejemplo:

The last CD I made was back in, oh I dunno early December.

It included songs by Koop, this strange Swedish group that puts out some Jazzy sounding stuff with titles like: Whenever There is You and Come to Me

2 songs by John Legend: Heaven and Save Room, a tune called Ghetto Heaven by Common and Macy Grey, some Lemon Jelly....and I can't remember the rest..

The point is, after I actually LISTENED I realized all the songs I had chosen were about the beginning and ending of a relationship. (isn't that what most songs are about anyway?!)

Which is exactly where I was when I made it:

The end of the relationship whose first ending spawed this blog.

The beginning of things with Mr. Squeeze. . .

So if I'm ever confused about how I feel or where I am, all I have to do is look at the music I'm listening to and I should be able to figure it out!

Aren't women strange?
(Or maybe it's just Music-lovers?)

No wonder guys can't figure us out. We barely understand ourselves!

BTW - Tomorrow is my Birthday!!

I'll post embarrassing pictures of myself and do a little weekend update . . . and What a Weekend it Was!
