I've been blog-tagged.
Sorry, Arethusa, I really couldn't find anything in a song that pins me down. But since you tagged me I had to choose two songs, so I pick these.
Young MC - Roll With The Punches (mp3). Always good advice. It's what you do when you bust a move and the move backfires. Rolling with the punches isn't possible if you don't anticipate them. Sometimes I hate that I do this, but when things are going really, really well for me I start looking for oil slicks and falling anvils, and flying fists. On the other hand, when life is shit I know that good times are near. That's what this 1989 song is all about.
Fiery Furnaces - Sing for Me (mp3). I'm coming close to the end of my military assignment here just outside of Washington, D.C., and there's a good chance that I'll be heading overseas within the 10 months or so for an "unaccompanied tour." I'm always excited about travel and little adventures, but I've become close to my friends here, and of course I will also miss family, including my new baby girl. Tthis song is full of hope, and heartbreaking. REM's Untitled track from GREEN would have worked just as well.
So, I suppose I have to tag someone else now and make him/her "it."
RC666, you know what to do. Let me guess...You're going to pick Freebird by Skynyrd and something by Marilyn Manson? hehe.
