Hmm. This one's interesting.

You're supposed to answer the questions with lyrics. (Thank you, chiriko! Still! :D )

tell us a li'l about yourself

"She just wept till her eyes became sore, I knew who she was but I don't any more..." -'She Just Wept', Starsailor

"Electric blue for me!" -'Electricity', OMD

"Dreaming of Mercy Street
Wear your inside out
Dreaming of mercy
In your daddy's arms..." -'Mercy Street', Peter Gabriel

"Machines will love me all of my life,
Electric (?) energies keeping me alive...
I let them teach me how to pass the time,
They only want what's best for you...
Oh, future days are here..." -'Now Always And Forever', Gay Dad

~counts words~ "Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame ,fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame..." -'Fame', David Bowie

"The sound of waves in a pool of water
I'm drowning in my nostalgia..." -'Nostalgia', David Sylvian (thank you sing365.com)


if you could sing one thing to the person you like what would it be?

asrana - "Stay by my side and the cynics won't get in our way..." -'Alcoholic', Starsailor.

Chris, and please excuse the fact that this is addressed to 'her' - I can't exactly change the lyrics... -
"If I was a soldier
Captive arms I'd lay before her
If I was a sailor
Seven oceans I'd sail to her
If I was a painter
I'd paint a world that couldn't taint her
If I was a leader
On food of love from above I would feed her
If I was a poet
All my love in burning words I would show it..." -'If I Was', Midge Ure. #3 on list of World's Most Grammatically Incorrect Songs.

Jewel - "Rub the sleep out of my face
Hug my pillow and try not to count the days
Get your face out of my brain
I don't believe in being brave..." -'Being Brave', Menswe@r

Val - "SWITCH IT ON!" -'Planet Earth (live version), Duran Duran ~ggls~

Vered (sorry for being...well, obtuse, frankly) -
"In dresses white, all set for sail
A little girl dreams of taking the veil
In dresses white, all set for sail
A little girl dreams of taking the veil
On beaches clean of sand and shell
A little girl dreams of taking the veil
All lightning bright and thunder loud
A little girl dreams safe and sound..."
-'Taking The Veil', David Sylvian

Nick - "Oh I was moved by your screen dream
Celluloid pictures of living
Your death could not kill my love for you
Take two people romantic...
Smoky nightclub situation...
Your cigarette traces a ladder..." -'2HB', Roxy Music

Rebecca - "You've got me girl on the run around run around
You've got me all around town..." -'Ladytron', Roxy Music


if you could say one thing to your worst enemy what would it be?

Congratulations, my sweet - you get a long one.
"Like the knife of a thief that's held close to the throat
I'm threatened by you and the cruel way you gloat
You once turned me on, now all it seems so remote
You broke me in pieces, you cherished each blow;
The harder you hit me, the stronger I grow
I'll leave you tomorrow, take my pride and I'll go

You may break the skin but you can't kill the soul
I've had all I can take
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving, I've had all I can take

Don't tell me you love me, your tears are too late
Your trap was deception, and I took the bait
The animal in you, you can't keep at bay
I'm not your possession to treat as you wish
Your silence will slowly destroy you each day
I'm leaving tomorrow, my love for life is great

You may break the skin but you can't kill the soul
I've had all I can take
I've had all I can take
I've had all I can take
I've had all I can take

I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving tomorrow
I'm leaving, yes I'm leaving

You broke me in pieces, you cherished each blow;
The harder you hit me, the stronger I grow
I'll leave you tomorrow, take my pride and I'll go
I'm leaving tomorrow..." -'Tomorrow', The Communards
(I mean, clearly, I couldn't be saying this. But it's appropriate in the worst way.)

And to the Wives from Hell :
"I'm giving you the news :
Your domination's through." -'Who Do You Think You Are?', Duran Duran
(seemed appropriate, though I don't like the song...)


where would you go on vacation?

"California, California, you're such a wonder that I think I'll stay in bed..." -'California', Rufus Wainwright

"All I want is a room somewhere,
Far away from the cold night air,
With one enormous chair -
Oh wouldn't it be loverly?" -from My Fair Lady. ~s~

"I'm going down to Liverpool to do nothing
All the days of my life..." -'Going Down To Liverpool', The Bangles


how do you feel right now?

"And how does it feel like to wake up in the sun,
And how does it feel like to shine on everyone,
How does it feel like to let forever be?"
-'Let Forever Be', The Chemical Brothers

"I miss you...but I haven't met you yet..." -'I Miss You', Björk

"I know all there is to know about the crying game...
I've had my share of the crying game..."
-'The Crying Game', Boy George

"Daddy I've got nothing left,
What can I do that's for the best?" -'She Just Wept', Starsailor

"I don't know what to do,
I'm always in the dark,
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks;
I really need you tonight..." -'Total Eclipse Of The Heart', Bonnie Tyler

"I hate to ask
But are friends electric?
Mine's broken down
And now I've no-one to love..."
-'Are "Friends" Electric?', Gary Numan

And finally. We're quirky tonight.
"Rameses! Colossus! Rameses! Colossus!
Indigo, here we go
Indigo, here we go oh oh oh..."
-'Indigo', Moloko


would you ever have a one night stand?

"Just say no - NO! - just say no..."
'Just Say No', The Grange Hill Cast. ~pause~ ~breaks up in giggles~


how do you feel about your best friends?

"But in a world without you,
Where would I be?"
-'World Without You', Belinda Carlisle

"Don't drink, don't smoke - what do ya do ya?" -'Goody Two Shoes', Adam Ant (Not sure why though...tee hee.)

"You lift my spirit, you melt the ice..." -'I Turn To You', Melanie C

"I'd drive a million miles
To be with you tonight
So if you're feeling low,
Turn up your radio!
'Everybody Have Fun Tonight', Wang Chung


do you have a boyfriend?

"'s long as we have music
Never gonna lose it
Everything'll work out right..."
-'Safety Dance', Men Without Hats

"Oh lover come back to me,
You don't have to knock on my door now,
Lover come back to me -
KICK IT RIGHT DOWN!
KICK IT RIGHT DOWN!
KICK IT RIGHT DOWN RIGHT DOWN!" -'Lover Come Back To Me', Dead Or Alive
Tee hee. I love love LOVE that song.


what do you wish you were doing right now?

"If I had a chance I'd ask the world to dance..."
-'Dancing With Myself', Billy Idol.

"Yeah, we wanna star in an eighties movie
American bratpack members, truly
Yeah, we want big hair, permed and curly
So we can wear shades, looking mean and surly
Yeah we wanna car with a removable roof
So we can air our big hair, bypass the truth
That these things never happen in reality
But we'll be pretty in pink, just wait and see

I'll be the starbright boy
And you're the starbright girl
I'll be the starbright boy
And invade your world

..../cut verse/

We'll be hanging around with ferris bueller
Meet drew barrymore cuz she's way cooler
Buy all our clothes on rodeo drive
Never flatlining, we'll be alive
Upside down like we're the lost boys
Endorse the starbright fake plastic toys
Until the white flag must be unfurled
Just like superman, we'll invade your WORLD!"
-'Starbright Boy', Bis.


any words of advice?

"They say they can break you again and again, if life is a radio, TURN UP TO TEN!" -'Crazy Crazy Nights', KISS

"And when it hurts you know they love to tell you
How they warned you...
They say "Don't be surprised at someone's lies"
They think they taunt you,
But if you can stand the test
You know your worst is better than their best
.../cut chorus/
Being an island
Shying from trying
Seems the easy way
Such an easy way
But there's no future
Without tears..."
-'Open Your Heart', The Human League

And, predictably,
"Follow your heart,
Don't let someone else do your living for you,
Follow your heart,
To yourself and no-one else always be true..."
-'Follow Your Heart', The Thompson Twins

That was. A LOT. Of fun. Happy! Happy! Happy! Music! Yay!

Someone wanna set me some more? ~bounce bounce~
~ggl~

    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…

    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…

    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…
