    If I Were a Playlist...

    If you could put yourself in song form, which 15 songs would you be? They can be anything- songs that remind you of times in your life, favourites that never get old, instrumentals, anything!

    Feel free to explain your choices!

    Here goes...

    If I Were a Playlist, I would be...

    1. Take 5- Dave Brubeck
    2. Sweetness- Jimmy Eat World...me, in song form
    3. Under the Bridge- Red Hot Chili Peppers...no idea why, but I used to scream this at the top of my lungs when I was 5...
    4. Warning- Incubus...poetry
    5. Jupiter from "The Planets"- Gustav Holst...continues to stop me dead in my tracks no matter where I am or what I'm doing
    6. Let it Be- the Beatles...perhaps my favourite song in the world
    7. Moon River- Frank Sinatra
    8. September- Earth, Wind & Fire...laughing harder than I have ever laughed before
    9. Caribbean Blue- Enya...the "dolphin song" from my childhood memories
    10. Home- Michael Buble...will remind me of the best summer of my life until the day I die
    11. The Bazaar- The Tea Party...a distinct memory of my brothers from when I was very young
    12. My Funny Valentine- Rogers and Hammerstein...reminds my favourite person in the world
    13. Clair de Lune- Debussy...reminds me of my daddy
    14. Something- The Beatles
    15. Stellar- Incubus
    I'm weary with right-angles, abbreviated daylight,
    Waiting for a winter to be done.
    Why do I still see you in every mirrored window,
    In all that I could never overcome?

    I'd be...

    1. Love Street: The Doors
    Explanation: I love Jim Morrison and particularily this song. I wish to be as mysterious and enigmatic as the woman who it is about.

    2. Seventeen: Ladytron
    Explanation: I am seventeen. This song speaks loudly to me about certain lifestyle choices of mine. And the music is great. I've linked to videos for some of the more obscure songs.

    4. Lovers in a Dangerous Time: Bruce Cockburn

    5. If I Ever Leave this World Alive: Flogging Molly

    6. Nature Boy: Nat King Cole

    7. Everything's Happening So Fast: MGMT
    OBSCURE.

    8. Naked in the City Again: Hot Hot Heat
    Live, not best quality.

    9. Lost in the Supermarket: The Clash

    10. Hey, Ladies! : The Johnstones
    This is also sort of dirty and full of innuendo.

    11. Finding out True Love is Blind: Louis XIV
    I forewarn you, this is pretty dirty and and full of innuendo.

    12. Shine on, You Crazy Diamond: Pink Floyd (this is the choice of my best friend in the entire world, and my Mom.)

    13. Honest Mistake: The Bravery
    It was...

    14. Time Won't Let me Go: The Bravery
    This is how I feel. Almost all the time. Damn you, nostalgia!

    15. Two Hands on the Wheel: Jimmy Swift Band
    This song got me through England.

    Naked except for a cigarette, you let your mind drift and forget your disbelief. Feel the chill down your back and the flutter of wings through dandelion fields, and forget the pull of gravity in a night without stars.

    I lack eloquence and commitment to my arguments. They are half baked, and I will begin passionately, and then abandon them.

    My relationship with songs is a bit different: I've been collecting them, from some time ago ... So, here's the list I have, up till now:

    (Not all youtubes are available ... it happens, sometimes, of a song to vanish; I found it interesting, and let the link in my bookmarks list, anyhow.)

    001
    My father's gun FOR Elizabethtown
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu7O0J61zac

    001b
    (lyrics of Elizabethtown soundtrack)
    http://www.stlyrics.com/e/elizabethtown.htm

    002
    Hard Times (Eastmountainsouth)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBSbZAn-hLM

    (two songs from the movie Elizabethtown ... sweet romantickish movie )


    003
    Sweet Fellowship (Acappella)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2RW5...elated&search=

    (my first girlfriend was from a religious family, and knew lots and lots and lots of gospel groups ... this is one I remembered to have liked, back then; when I recovered touch (and friendship) with her, last year, I asked her about some groups, and recollected this one; they don't sound as good as back then, funny, but, even so, I liked to find them out again)


    004
    The city of the blinding lights FOR The Devil wears Prada
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LaKWuqm-3c

    005
    Sleep
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFhzY31oYz4

    my Devil wears Prada movie fever ...


    006
    So Young (Corrs, 1999)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBv5Y...elated&search=

    I made this list after some time that I had somewhat ran away of my Corrs fever ... but, sometimes, I come back to them


    007
    Leaving So Soon? (Keane)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp2vO...elated&search=

    around the same time I was in the The Corrs fever, I met these g*o*ys, and I liked them, all right


    008
    I've Got You (McFly)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKXlC...elated&search=

    the movie is Just my luck, if I'm not mistaken; it's with the boy that's going to play James Kirk, in the next Star Trek movie ... always good to remember that (both things~)


    009
    School of Rock
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=bTvlDFoIQKM

    another movie that I liked quite a lot!


    010
    My Brave Face (P. MacCartney)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGRMl...eature=related

    I worked with a woman, a bit older than me, and, at that time, I came to find out some old stuff again ... this was one of them -- not to mention that our fellow coworker is a ... (he would deny this, but) a beatlemaniac, as we call in Portuguese I like this album by mr. McCartney, it takes me back to the beginning of my highschool youth


    011
    Heroes (Wallflowers/Godzilla '98)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLY48-MENiI

    Godzilla movie. Good song, the Universal Channel used this, in one commercial, and, later on, I found out that it was this song (when I got the movie, in a store ...); I was glad to find out--


    012
    Superstition (Stevie Wonder)
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=wDZFf0pm0SE

    (something else of the days when I worked with that woman mentioned before ...)


    013
    drifting (Andy McKee)
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddn4MGaS3N4

    now, that fan of the beatles that I told you? he plays (and teaches) guitar; so, he presented me this guitar (wonderful-wish-I-could-do-that) freak ...


    014
    California Dreamin' (The Mamas & the Papas)
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=-wI6uAOHzvo

    love that! I was watching Forest Gump, with my dad (he bought the movie), and one of the things he was telling me about it is that it portrays his generation in an interesting way, and that this song as background of the movie is very touchy~ (I played it, in a karaoke, the birthday party of that mentioned ex-girlfriend; it was great, however I didn't make any preparations for that, and sang on my own, it was wonderful that the people around made an efficient chorus, which I completely forgot to be necessary )


    015
    Elephant Gun (Beirut)
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=N-mqhkuOF7s

    coworkers keep bringing me stuff to hear ... these are the two ways I meet songs: movies or coworkers~


    016
    Salvation is here (Hillsong United, álbum "Look to you")
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=aEI4Y4jpe94

    I don't usually like gospel, but one friend presented me this group, and they're quite ... hearable~


    017
    Coração audaz
    http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=c7YO-diQNuk

    017b
    Coração audaz (letra/lyrics)
    http://letras.terra.com.br/coracao-audaz/

    one particular "gospel" of the church I attend to ... | in Portuguese

    You've got a friend (James Taylor, '71)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vY1peG8gHQ

    019
    One (U2)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFWPeVfWB9o

    020
    Twist and shout (The Beatles)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVlr4g5-r18

    three other songs I sang in said kareoke; actually, that night, I sang 1. "Somos todos iguais esta noite", by Ivan Lins, Brasilian guy, 2. "Twist n' shout" (which almost drained all my throat, but, fortunately, I recovered myself, and got even more enthusiastic ...) 3. "California dreamin'", 4. "One", and 5. "You've got a friend"; maybe some other, I can't recall, it's been about a month


    021
    You are the sunshine of my life (Stevie Wonder)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPyq4iqt6Go

    another Stevie, that I was playing at youtube, these days ...


    &, my recent Mallu Magalhães fever:
    (I need to get her cd, but I'm completely out of money )


    022
    Once upon a time there was a flying cat (Mallu Magalhães)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKlEMi5wR2c

    Oh I completely understand. That is a magnificent song. Perhaps my favorite Beetles song.

    Fifteen songs is a lot to go searching for and explain.
    Let me give it a shot, but I know I wont be comprehensive. I'm just going to flip through my ipod. And in no particular order:

    1. My Way - Frank Sinatra
    2. Can't You Hear Me Knocking - Rolling Stones
    3. Symphony #41 (Jupiter) - Mozart
    4. Let It Be - Beetles
    5. Carol - Chuck Berry
    6. Symphony #3 - Beethoven
    7. Redemption Song - Bob Marley
    8. Night Moves - Bob Seger
    9. Comes Love - Billy Holiday
    10. Smokestack Lightning - Howlin Wolf
    11. Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters
    12. Georgia On My Mind - Ray Charles
    13. Sophisticated Lady - Duke Ellington
    14. Mack The Knife - Louis Armstrong
    15. Who Are You - The Who

    I tried to limit it to one per artist, and I could have had the whole list full of Stones or Sinatra.

    15 songs? We can't agree on 15 songs! Too much infighting.

    I do, indeed Virgil. I like a little bit of everything, but I LOVE Brubeck. I've seen him live twice now.

    Yes, it's mine too. I love your list, Virgil, especially the Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters! I have a soft spot for Maybelline...haha

    1. You Can Still Be Free- Savage Garden
    2.Goodbye My Lover- James Blunt
    3. Yesterday- The Beatles
    4. Moonlight Sonata- Beethoven
    5. Any Miles Davis
    6. Softly, As I leave you- Frank Sinatra

    8. At Last- Etta James
    9. There for You- Damian Marley

    But 15 songs is not enough... there have been so many in my life that have affected me or meant something to me... that make me nostalgic or that I associate with loved ones, with past loves, etc. Or songs that incite the revolutionary spirit within me

    Artists I would want to add to this list are Talib Kweli, Michael Jackson, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Vivaldi, Marvin Gaye, Dino Merlin, Kanye West... Spanish boleros... ahhh, so many more I could add... music stirs great emotion within me

    1.All The Same by Sick Puppies.
    This song... my gosh... this song. It has so many meanings and memories attached to it. I wouldn't even know where to begin with this song. This guy and I... it's our song, I guess . I remember the first time I heard it... The first time we listened to it together, and there's one other song on the album that means a lot to us both as well. It's also called All The Same (Free Hugs), and given my generally loving and huggy nature, it's even better .

    And I'll take you for who you are
    If you take me for everything
    And do it all over again
    It's all the same


    2.Running Up That Hill by Placebo.
    It's a cover of another song but this version is one of my all time ever favourite songs. It haunts me, in a good way. The guy I mentioned beforehand got me listening to the band, so that means something too.

    And if I only could
    Make a deal with God,
    And get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    Be running up that building,
    If I only could, oh...


    3.Looming Moon by Secret and Whisper.
    This song is in my avatar . Funnily enough I wasn't too keen on the song until I mentioned it to the guy I've mentioned in the past two songs and we discussed it and kind of analysed it.

    Don't turn away looming moon
    You'll have your revenge very soon
    Don't turn away from what you love
    Soon you'll be finding it's much too tough


    4.Marble House by The Knife.
    I always thought this was a love song until I talked to some people and we came up with heaps of different interpretations. It makes me want to relax, want to dance, want to think.

    The moment we believe that we have never met
    Another kind of love it's easy to forget.
    When we are all alone then we do both agree,
    We have a thing in common this was meant to be.


    5.Rock & Roll by Eric Hutchinson.
    This is kind of a newer song, but it's already one of my summer songs . It's just so mellow and catchy, even though the lyrics don't exactly match the type of song . It makes me think of the stubborn and determined side of me

    'Cause If she wants rock, she rocks
    If she wants to roll, she rolls.
    She can roll with the punches
    As long as she feels like she’s in control


    6.The Cemetery by Architecture In Helsinki.
    I wanted to put heaps of their songs in here, but this one will do. One of the main thoughts on my mind tends to be about life and death and everything related to that, and this song is so happy and upbeat, but about a cemetery and everyone going there. So, yeah.

    There's a shadow on the wall and it's nine feet tall,
    And our hearts won't sink 'cause it's obviously nothing at all,
    And in a roundabout way we can disappear towards the coast,
    The most I have to say isn't really that revealing at all.


    7.Death And All His Friends by Coldplay.
    Almost any Coldplay song (esp. Clocks and Fix You and Shiver) all have some connection to some event in my life, but this one lately always just speaks to me.

    No I don't wanna battle from beginning to end,
    I don't wanna cycle or recycle revenge,
    I don't wanna follow death and all of his friends.


    8.Just A Girl by No Doubt.
    No Doubt reminds me of childhood (not that it was that long ago . I always used to love the band and I was always singing their songs). And a few people know how feminist I can get

    This world is forcing me
    To hold your hand
    'Cause I'm just a girl, little 'ol me
    Don't let me out of your sight
    I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
    So don't let me have any rights


    9.Mr. Raven by MC Lars.
    I love nerdcore hiphop!! This song is indeed a version of The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. I was rapping all day today when we went on a drama/lit excursion!! I included this one because there are quite a few classics that I like (whereas I love his other songs but couldn't make them fit as easy )

    Who's that, who's that rappin'
    Who's that rappin' at my chamber door?
    Mr, Mr. Raven
    All up in my grill like "nevermore"


    10. Consoler Of The Lonely by The Raconteurs.
    There have been so many times, and there still are times, where people expect me to be something I'm not, and I get so sick sometimes of pretending to be what they think I am just so that it doesn't blow up into something big.

    Conversations getting dull
    There's a constant buzzing in my ears
    Sense of humor's void and numb
    And I'm bored to tears


    11.Rusty Halo by The Script.
    Fits in with my beliefs on religion etc.

    Yeah it's been a long time,
    It's been a long time coming.
    Been so long
    But I gotta shine, shine, shine
    My rusty halo.
    Gotta shine my rusty halo


    12.Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) by Quindon Tarver.
    One of the best best best songs in the world. I remember growing up with it, and the words still stick in my mind. When I stress out or worry, this is the song I turn to.

    Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday

    13. Always by Bent.
    I love this song in general, but this remix always makes me want to dance, although sometimes it helps me relax too.

    Just before I go to sleep
    There's a rendez-vous I keep
    And, my darling, till we do
    You are always in my heart


    14. Porcelain by Moby.
    Most songs by Moby remind me of drama class, a big part of my life and who I am.

    In my dreams I'm jealous all the time
    Then I wake I'm going out of my mind
    Going out of my mind


    15. Coconut by The Sea and Cake.
    I love this band! Their music is so relaxing and if I was a song, I'd probably be one of theirs.

    I have no idea what the lyrics are and I can't find them anywhere.

    2. Seniorita - James (dedicated to me by the bf when we first got together..the refrain goes like "don't treat me like a God, treat me like a dog"..when we were out he always asked for the dj to play that song..now he does the same but changes the refrain to "don't treat me like a dog, treat me like a God" )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3vVDyBGvNI

    3. Can't bee - Moonspell (the song that got me and my bf together - long story)

    Here's Mine:

    1. Bastards of Young -- The Replacements: Because sometimes I feel young, mad and whiny.

    2. 'Round Midnight - Miles Davis: Because I like coffee and this song makes me want to have another cup. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mji4nAk_8ZY

    3. I Don't Want To Live on the Moon - Ernie: Because this is the saddest, most hopeful song there has ever been. It makes me almost cry every time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeNO5...eature=related

    4. Intergalactic - The Beastie Boys: Because I can only hope to this geeky and this awesome at the same time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDS83yrM30Y

    5. Hey Ladies - Beastie Boys: Same reasons as above, except you can add this phrase at the end: "with the ladies". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hy5iQubfV5s

    6. Stupid Boy - Gear Daddies: This is the song I'll want my two daughters to commit to memory in a short while. It's about how most boys are dumb. . and stupid. And that there are a whole lot of 'em. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvC_rV0qt_Y

    7. I Want to Drive a Zamboni - Gear Daddies: Because I want drive a Zamboni some time. Call it a life goal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVkJbvv3pHg

    8. "The Conversation" -- Hank Jr. & Waylon Jennings: Because Bosepheus + Hoss + Jim Beam = Awesome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoOEEQPiUxE

    9. "Fern Hill" - Dylan Thomas. I like listening to poetry. And Thomas is a great reader, a little over the top, but I'd rather over-the-top than monotoned stiffness: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuMfsjyg9MM

    10. "Our Town" Iris Dement: The best song about small town America that I've ever heard. I've lived in many small towns and seen them destroyed by pretension, greed, and hopelessness. But I still hold on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9-pD...eature=related

    11. "Thank God I'm a Country Boy" - John Denver. The title says it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzldL...eature=related

    Okay, I got to get back to work.

    These are the songs, which would make feel a little bit sentimental every time I listen to them:
    1) Who Are you - The Who: this is my current life theme song
    2) Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere - The Who: this was my life theme song when I was younger
    3) Time - Pink Floyd: This is my birthday song, will be played on birthday annually
    4) Tonight Tonight - The Smashing Pumpkins: First time I thought that Billy Corgan was the sexiest man ever
    5) People Are Strange - The Doors: This is the song of understanding people when I wish I didn't have to understand them
    6) Use Somebody - Kings of Leon: My self-pity song
    7) The Freshman - The Verve Pipe: Just like the lyrics, nothing really special
    8) Let Down - Radiohead: When I was younger (again), I would listen to this song to lift up my spirit
    9) El Schorcho - Weezer: I will send this song when I want to tell a guy that I like him
    10) With or Without You - U2: Have no particular reason, I just think it is so sentimental
    11) Why Does It Always Rain On Me - Travis: Cheer up song, everyone has his/her share
    12) Trash - Suede: We're trash...you and me...
    13) Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd: Awesome love expression
    14) Disappear - INXS
    15) Subterranean Homesick Alien - Radiohead: I told the policemen they'd never believe me, they thought I have finally lost it completely. I showed the stars and the meaning of life, they shot me away. But I will be alright.

    I love how varied and creative everyone's playlists are! I will have to think hard about mine.
    I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.
