I love all kinds of music!! Today all day I’ve been listening to music.
First random track – Crashing Down by Mat Kearney
I won this big ass MP3 player from Molson Canadian Rocks, back when MP3 players were a new thing. It’s big, like the size of a Walkman. When I’m using it people ask me what the heck it is. It’s awesome, that’s what it is!! It has 3359 tracks on it!! Sadly I can’t add more because there is no updated driver for it and it hasn’t worked on Windows 10…it last worked on Windows 7. Alas, now it only plays oldies, but goodies!!
Second random track – Talk Show Host by Radiohead
Romeo and Juliet, the one with Leo and Claire. Remember that movie? It came out in the 90’s when we were in high school, and super romantic. We were older than Romeo and Juliet were actually supposed to be. Now I wonder, since I’ve grown up and been burned, how can you know you’re in love when you’re that young? That was a different time though, now a days it seems like love is a choice that you have to make every day. So many people get lost and give up. Easily find someone else at the other end of their text. It was probably always hard, we’ve just become lazy.
Third random track – Rocket Man by Elton John
I wonder what made him write this song? Or, did he actually write it? I should look that up! Maybe someone wrote it, an actual astronaut, and decided he should sing it. When you hear the story telling singers, do you wonder where the song came from, or do you just listen and like it? This is a good song, for sure. “And all the science I don’t understand, it’s just my job five days a week.” Don’t most astronauts do the science too? Are there guys that just do the space part and nothing else?
Fourth random track – It’s a Wonderful Life (Gonna Have A Good Time) by Fishbone
I don’t even know. There’s so many songs on here and I’m not sure where some of them came from. Have you ever heard this one? It’s interesting. Has a good message, but who is Fishbone? What genre is this, ska? Hmmmmm….
Fifth random track – Wannabe by Spice Girls
There’s going to be a reunion tour?!?! I remember when this song came out. Seems like a billion years ago, or like 20 or something. Back then we couldn’t even imagine ourselves in 20 years. We just wanted to zigazig-ah, and we didn’t even know what that was!! This song really does get you wanting to move though, I heard it on the radio when I was driving home the other day and it totally lifted my grumpy mood!
Sixth random track – The Next Episode by Dr Dre
Rap has changed. This is a classic!! I can picture Snoop Dogg just a swinging his hair. Da da da da da. This song makes me want to dance around too. Where is Dr Dre now? Is he just producing? Will there be another episode? Snoop Dogg is doing different things now, like cooking with Martha Stewart. Times have changed!
Seventh random track – Living Dead Girl by Rob Zombie
Is she a zombie? I love zombies!! Not that I would ever want to meet one, unless it was like in Warm Bodies, those were good zombies. I love that genre though, Walking Dead, iZombie, that kind of thing. There’s even that one where someone was but by a mosquito and turned into a zombie. Oooo, and the one where the guy is in high school and he dies and comes back as a zombie and he’s falling apart and stuff. Classic!
Eighth random track – Fur Elise by Beethoven
This is one of the tracks that came with the MP3 player. It’s a nice random change of pace. It’s an actual classic too. It would be cool to live in the days when someone was just playing classical music in the corner, someone was doing a cross stitch, someone was reading, the dogs are laying by the fire and everyone is sipping on tea or brandy, deep in thought. Sounds pleasant, doesn’t it? Now we’re all sitting on our phones talking to someone else!
Ninth random track – Sorry, Sorry by Rooney
This song reminds me of college days, and also The O.C. because that’s where it was discovered. It’s kind of a story song too, just the way the guy is singing. It’s very catchy. If you’re still reading this, and you haven’t heard this song, you should listen to it! Recommendation straight from one of Ashley’s Random Ramblings!! I hope you’re enjoying this post and maybe opening up you musical mind! Get out of that every day genre, listen to something new. You might like it!
Tenth (and last) random track – Suds in the Bucket by Sara Evans
This is one of my favourite country songs! It’s easy to sing to, upbeat, relatable… okay, maybe not the last one. Are there any love stories like that? How many people are with their high school sweetheart? From a small town, where everyone knows everything about anything? I like the idea of it, I like the picture it puts in my head. We don’t even wash clothes that way anymore… sometimes people use a clothes line but no one in the first world uses a bucket anymore, we’re blessed to have washing machines. A girl can daydream about such a romance though, right?
That’s some random music for you, with some thoughts to boot! Good afternoon, good evening and goodnight!!
