    Step 1: Open your music player.
    Step 2: Put all of your music on random.
    Step 3: Pick the first twenty songs
    Step 4: Write down the first line of each song, no matter how embarrassing!
    Step 5: Put a list of what songs the lyrics came from.
    Step 5: When someone guesses correctly, strike out the line and list the correct name of the song next to it...

    1. I walk the maze of moments, but everywhere I turn to begins a new beginning.
    2. Grew up on a tightrope, learned to smile even when I was falling down.
    3. There’s two things I know for sure, she was sent here from Heaven and she’s Daddy’s little girl.
    4. Out of the tree of life I just picked me a pun, you came along and everything started to hum.
    5. The D.A. is dressed to the nines, in the mirror he practices his lines.
    6. Finding my way back to sanity again, I don’t really know what I’m gonna do when I get there.
    7. On the edge, windowsill, ponders his maker, ponders his will.
    8. Words get tangled on your tongue and you stumble on your feet, when you miss somebody…
    9. He said, "I was in my early 40’s, with a lot of life before me, when a moment came that stopped me on a dime."
    10. If one day you discover him, broken down he’s lost everything.
    11. Allright, so this is a song about anyone, it could be anyone, you’re doing your own thing and someone comes out of the blue and they’re like “can I get your digits?”.
    12. This is my Church, this is where I heal my hurts.
    13. You can run on for a long time, run on for a long time, run on for a long time, sooner or later gonna cut you down.
    14. It started way back in third grade, I used to sit next to Emmylou Hays.
    15. I know that every morning you go thumbing through the personal want ads.
    16. Have a itty bit of love on a itty honeymoon, you have a itty dish and a itty bitty spoon.
    17. From the moment that we met, my world was turned around, upside down, to some degree I still regret my memory for keeping you around.
    18. I never had all the answers, I never had enough time.
    19. Don't tell me, if there's ever no more me and you, just let me keep on thinking the grass is green and the sky is blue.
    20. Sleep with all the lights on, you're not so happy, you're not secure.

    1. Jonathan Larson - [1]
    2. Fall Out Boy - [2]
    3. One Less Reason - [-]

    2. Cabeysoup2056 (SUPER music compatibility)

  • 10,000 Mark :-)

    19. Jan. 2007, 0:07

    Wow, since the middle of September (five months) I've listened to 11,013 songs. I always knew I listened to alot of music, but I never realized how much until this. It seems that I listen to about 600 songs a week, with the highest being 1090 songs in the first week of december (holy shit, what was I listening to!?) and the lowest being 414 the 2nd week in November when I was crazy busy with my dad's visit and YSB's Youth Rec Event.

    But, overall, I listen to anywhere between 500 to 700 songs a week, most often one of those songs/artists being around the 200 mark. And it's a different song or artist every week. Right now it's Rascal Flatts, last week it was Tegan & Sara. I just listen to what I like, not a specific genre or group. And when I like something, I tend to overplay it and be a bit obsessive about it. oops?

    So 10,000 tracks in five months. Will it take me another five to get to 20,000?

    mmmm pizza. /drool
  • It's HappyHardcore Time!!!

    1. Dez. 2006, 21:08

    Definition - "Happy hardcore is a form of dance music typified by a very fast tempo (usually around 165-180 BPM), often coupled with male or female vocals, and saccharine lyrics. Its characteristically 4/4 beat "happy" sound distinguishes it from most other forms of breakbeat hardcore, which tend to be 'darker'."(www.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Hardcore)

    This is my FAVOURITE style of techno, and they definitely don't play enough of it in Ottawa at raves.

    My favourite DJ of HappyHardcore is Ottawa's very own Anabolic Frolic. He used to host 'Hullabaloo' in Toronto from 1997-2005, which was considered (at the time) the standard to which all other raves are compared to. At the time Frolic found the North American version of raves had veered into a darker, more techno influenced direction - rather than a pure party atmosphere - and, fustrated with the lack of raves featuring his prefered music of happy hardcore, Hullabaloo was born. It was modeled after the UK's biggest promotions of the time, Dreamscape and Helter Skelter. (http://www.hulla.info/?page=about)

    I'm very sad that I didn't get to experience what Hullaballo was all about - I am a HUGE fan of HappyHardcore and an entire rave series devoted to just that genre of music would have been my Nirvana.

    Anabolic Frolic (real name: Chris Samojlenko) is also known for his "Happy2bHardcore" album series. These 7 albums span from January 1997 to January 2003. On his myspace page, a blog entry dating September 20th, 2006, he basically gives 'permission' (term used loosely here) to download any/all of these tracks if you can find them, as he does not get paid anything if you buy them in stores (due to his record label going out of business).

    I have since found every album and gladly added them to my music collection. They will definitely be on repeat for quite awhile to come.

    So are you Happy to be Hardcore?

    I say,
    "Hulla yeah!!"

  • OverDosing on Country

    17. Sep. 2006, 14:31

    Ladylike in mama's shoes, I tried but i don't fit them. Ladylike in cowboy boots, in diamonds,lace and denim. A woman redefined - I'm ladylike -- Ladylike - Lisa Brokop

    Introduction

    yep. its official. i am a country girl. i now have 4 hrs, 53 min and 33 seconds of just country music on my computer.
    With 98 files to choose from, it was incredibly difficult to highlight just a couple of songs. Especially with country - other styles of music I have to be in the mood for to enjoy - but with country I am very indiscriminatory....makes it twice as difficult!

    Oldies

    I definitely discovered some old classics/favourites which I hadn't listened to in just about forever, namely; Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Fishing in the dark, Travis Tritt - It's a great day to be alive, and Cheyl Wright - Jezebel.

    Absolute Classics

    I also re-discovered the triology of the best love songs to ever grace my short existance. I play them in this order b/c it just makes sense; Alison Krauss -You say it best (when you say nothing at all), Travis Tritt - Best of Intentions, and Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses.

    Favourite Artists

    Everything that certain artists release as singles, I fall in love with. In particular - Brad Paisley, (f: The World & Alcohol)
    Rascal Flatts (f: Skin (Sara-Beth) & Love to love you out loud),
    Joe Nichols (f:Tequila makes her clothes fall off).

    Top 5

    1) George Canyon - My Name
    This song sends shivers throughout my body and sometimes almost makes me tearful. It is about a stillborn baby, written from that perspective, and it's very moving. Plus he just has an amazing voice.
    "This love is my only emotion...never knew any fear or pain..."

    2) Gretchen Wilson - Homewrecker
    3) Toby Keith - Little Whisky Girl
    4) Big & Rich - Holy Water
    5) Lisa Brokop - Ladylike

    Ending

    Anyway, that's long enough for my first post. I'm going on 24 hours of no sleep. Need caffiene. Lots of it.
