time and time again, by the cemetery gates, a wolf was at the door with a hummingbird, dreaming western dreamz of skindiving, while Belle and Sebastian, who claimed that B is for “butcher”, pleaded “please, please, please, let me get what I want”, but it was all fool’s gold
I think it was Mellowlee’s friend, Just a Cool Cat, who first got us started on it, with his Friday Random 10 Playlist. It was cool seeing what came up randomly on other people’s music files.
Then Allison, thinking outside the box, took it one step further by, not only moving it to a Tuesday (a day in desperate need of a random playlist), but making a new song by taking some lyrics from each of the songs.
Well, that was too much fun to pass up. Here is my copycat effort:
Cemetery Gates – the Smiths
Time and Time Again – Counting Crows
Hummingbird – Wilco
A Wolf at the Door – Radiohead
Western Dreamz – Thrush Hermit
Skindiving – James
Belle and Sebastian – Belle and Sebastian
B is for Butcher – the Hives
Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want – the Smiths
Fool’s Gold – the Stone Roses
It seems so unfair. I wanted to see you walking backwards to get the sensation of you coming home. Remember to remember me standing still in your past.
Take it with a pinch of salt. Nothing’s ever good enough, good enough for me. Going down, I’m growing wings; hope I can fly before I hit the ground.
You better take a weight right off your mind and listen to what other people say, cause things are going wrong. You keep trying and end up in the middle.
For once in my life, let me get what I want; lord knows it would be the first time. I don’t need you to tell me what’s going down.
Well. That turned out to be a rather self-centered and angsty song, didn’t it? But I guess that’s not too surprising with two Smiths’ songs in the mix.
Victory cds are now burned and I'm pretty pumped about the playlist! It's not too late to give me a shout if you want one.
