Thank you, Claire!

Using song lyrics, answer the following questions...

1. Are you male or female:

...but you treat me like a woman, when I feel like a man...
-'Hey Dude', Kula Shaker

She was a lipstick boy
She was a beautiful boy...

-'Born Slippy', Underworld

She's a boy that we like and she's going to go far...
-'Lawnchairs', Our Daughter's Wedding

2. Describe yourself:

...you're sick and you're twisted,
irreverent, so beautiful...

-'Satan's Butterfly Ball', Boy George - excuse the ego trip

One day see a strange little girl, look at you...
One day see a strange little girl feeling blue...
She’d run to the town one day
Leaving home and the country fair
Just beware when you’re there
Strange little girl...
She didn’t know how to live in a town that was rough
It didn’t take long before she knew she had enough
Walking home in her wrapped up world,
She survived but she’s feeling old,
'Cause she found all things cold...
Strange little girl, where are you going?

-'Strange Little Girl', The Stranglers

3. How do they feel about you:

They? Who're they? Well, I can answer that in many ways, some of them quite painful, but - heh...I know...

"If you ever catch me in the arcade,
Don't even stop me for a photograph..."

-'Undergoing Treatment', Duran Duran

Oh, I don't know.

4. How do you feel about yourself:

Depending on the day I'm having -

I'm weightless/I'm bare
I'm faithless/I'm scared...

-'Peeping Tom', Placebo


'Cause I'm gonna make you see
There's nobody else here
No-one like me,
I'm special, so special,
I gotta have some of your attention, give it to me...

-'Brass In Pocket', The Pretenders. Tee hee. Ego trip again.

5. How do you feel about life:

Did nobody warn you, boy?
Love's in vogue again, my love...

-'In Vogue', Japan

6. What would you rather be doing:

~cracks up~
Hey, you, where were those Nine Inch Nails lyrics you quotes at me again?

~cough cough choke more laughter~
Moving on...

7. Describe where you live:

We're miles away from nowhere
And the wind doesn't have a name
So call it what you want to call it
Still blows down the lane...

-'Hold Back The Rain', Duran Duran

Y a des arbres, des maisons...
C'est pas Paris, c'est sa banlieue...

-'C'est Sa Banlieue' by Reynaldo Hahn - though the whole song, which I can't find, would make more sense

8. Describe how you love:

Tee hee.

Also -

...I don't feel bad about letting you go
I just feel sad about letting you know...

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new England
Are you looking for another girl

I loved the words you wrote to me
But that was bloody yesterday
I can't survive on what you send
Every time you need a friend

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them, but they were only satellites
It's wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care...

-'A New England', Kirsty MacColl

9. Share a few words of wisdom:
While looking for something appropriate at sing365.com, I turned up this, and I *like* it -

See the blue suburban dream,
under the jet plane sky,
Sleep away and dream a dream
Life is just a lullaby...

Oh, and everything will flow
Oh, you know everything will flow...

Watch the day begin again,
Whispering into the night,
See the pretty people play,
Hurrying under the light,
A million cars, a million trains,
Under the jet plane sky
Nothing lost and nothing gained
Life is just a lullaby...

-'Everything Will Flow', Suede

I love Suede. Happy me. Yay.

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

  • (no subject)

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

  • (no subject)

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
