Love this very sad song...

You know, I love Elvis. This song has brought tears to my eyes over many years of hearing it. You can hear the truth and pain in his words, there's no denying it. Funny how things you feel years before, become quite ironic in your own life...enjoy this song...

Walking down memory lane...

This was a staple 8-track in our car in the early 80's that I remember...and I'm pretty sure we only had two others lol! So we got to know this pretty well!

Wow! It's a snow day!

It snowed...and snowed...and snowed! I just shovelled for 1/2 hour and I'm not even 1/4 done...going to buy a bigger shovel this afternoon!!! I thought this song was appropriate to those who are working hard today where I live...shovelling!

Opps...missed yesterday!

I'm not used to this working stuff and organizing my life around it yet...but here I am today! I really love Adam Lambert, have since American Idol,and I'm glad he didn't win b/c now he's nobody's puppet, he can do what he wants with his music. I love the lyrics in this know sometimes you just like the song...sometimes you like the message...

Hey, slow it down whataya want from me
Whataya want from me
Yeah I'm afraid whataya want from me
Whataya want from me

There might have been a time
When I would give myself away
Oooh once upon a time I didn't give a damn
But now, here we are so whataya want from me

Just don't give up I'm workin it out
Please don't give in, I won't let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me
Yeah, it's plain to see (plain to see)
that baby you're beautiful

And there's nothing wrong with you
(nothing wrong with you)
It's me, I'm a freak (yeah)
but thanks for lovin' me
Cause you're doing it perfectly
(it perfectly)

There might have been a time
When I would let you slip away
I wouldn't even try
But I think you could save my life

Just don't give up on me
I won't let you down
No, I won't let you down

(So hey) just don't give up
I'm workin it out
Please don't give in,
I won't let you down
It messed me up Need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me

A German pop song for you!

For those of you that do not know...18 years ago I was a Rotary Exchange student and I was given East Germany to live in! Yes...the was was down 2 years b/f I went...but no...changes were barely made! Every house looked the same, drab, dreary, old, grey and falling apart. BUT it was the best time...once I learnt German, and that was thanks to a girl from England that came over to do her German practicum! After almost 3 months of me being cooped up ( I couldn't buy a train ticket, couldn't ask directions...nothing) She taught me German and life was good!

This song reminds me of my time, it's the only cassette...yes I said cassette...that I bought from over there, and I still remember the lyrics to this song lol! I hope you enjoy it!

Song of the day...for you my Rivier!

I am not one of those yell out to the world religious people. Yes I am catholic, graduated from a private catholic all girls school and in all honestly, was the best thing I did. I truely hope I can give my children the education I received from this school. It wasn't just math and science, it was you! Small classes with teachers who WANT to be there, they WANT you to succeed, they WANT their school to look good! I made the best friends there, we had the best times locked up for 6 out of 7 days of the week! No one tried to scale the 20 foot chain link fence lol! We did almost burn down the home ec room...but certainly not on purpose!
Such great memories there that I would not have had, had I stayed at high school here.

This song is a great song for Sunday, we often played this in prayer in the morning or at night. Michael W Smith and Amy Grant were like our staple songs! Love them both still to this day. This song makes me smile b/c it reminds me of you girls from Rivier as well as all the Sisters that put up with us!

This song has good memories...I hope you enjoy it as well!

Video not so it!

This song just makes me want to dance...despite what it's called! The video on the other hand, is much to be desired...if I were you...I'd just listen to the good song! It has no real meaning for me...except that it makes me happy!

Song of the day

Ah...I used to listen to this song EVERY night before I went to sleep. Most often b/c my friend Ryan worked at the radio station and would play it for me =) I love love loved Glass Tiger growing up...which most of you know! And thanks to a local singer Jen Hanson who ended up being a back up singer for the group, I got to meet my idols when I was I think 16? Sigh...dreams do come true! Those were the days...

It's my party...

I'm having an un-birthday this year, I really don't care that I'm getting a year older, nor do I care to celebrate...I'm not exactly where I thought I'd be or who I thought I'd be when I was 37 years old...but I guess I have to take that and make it into who I'm going to be and where I will be IN my 37th year don't I...hmmm...easier said...

Anyways, I have decided to take time every day and find a song that matches me, or someone in my life at this time...or this time years ago. Music has always played a very important role for me...probably b/c it's the only thing I can remember! I can't remember what I did yesterday, or two weeks ago...but I bet I can sing most Poison or Glass Tiger songs from the 80's! I ROCK! is my birthday...what song shall I start my 37th year...this is a long and thoughtful process...should I start it sad...emotional...happy...silly...hmmm...WELL...if you know me, you know I don't stay unhappy for too know I like to have fun, and I am usually the loudest in the crowd and doing the stupidest things...SO...I found this song...I remember my Dad singing this around the house when it was popular....ahh...see I do remember things!

and's kinda fitting for the beginning of my 37th year lol!! Enjoy my song of the day...turn up the volume!
