SONG 13: A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF A FORMER FRIEND
I Want Your Girlfriend To Be My Girlfriend - Reel Big Fish
I knew I wanted to use Reel Big Fish for this one but it took me a while to decide on the song. I chose this one because I actually think it's my favorite (apart from She Has A Girlfriend Now) & it also reminds me of another former friend, who once played this vindictively when my boyfriend of the time was there, nice. But really this is for a couple of people who have drifted out of my life. One of them is a guy who was a complete head fuck & the other is a girl who stole dreams from me. I don't particularly want to go into either of them, but my life is better without the negative energy. I'll keep the song though.

SONG 14: A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF YOUR BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND
Underneath It All - No Doubt
I once did this song at a gig with a band I was temporarily singing with, when he was there & he went all sheepish & embarrassed. It was pretty cheesy, but in my defense he had surprised me by being there. Made all the more as a crystallized memory because the song we did after (I Won't Share You) made him run out & think I was trying to break up with him or something. Needless to say we sorted it out & let's just chalk it up to experience & the effect of my awful singing. This song pretty much sums up my first thoughts on him & the reactions to us.

SONG 15: A SONG THAT YOU LOVE SINGING ALONG TO
A Rush And A Push And The Land That We Stand On Is Ours - The Smiths
Many a boring car journey has been made bearable by a mix tape of my favorite Smiths CDs. If you get in my car, you will be forced to sing to something, or listen to me sing something. This is the best because of one horrible drive, with rain & traffic when me & Jesus kept playing this song over & over so I could learn the lyrics for something & we could practice our rolling rrrs. I still haven't quite it down to an art form like Morrisey. How's your rrrrr?

SONG 16: A SONG THAT HAS MADE YOU CRY
Sorry About That - Alkaline Trio
There are a lot of songs that have made me cry, or I remember listening too when I was crying. But this one is probably the best one to share, because I haven't done Alkaline Trio yet & whenever I talk about this song no one seems to have heard about it. I only really love about 4 of their songs but this...it's just so perfect in it's self obsessed misery.



SONG 17: A SONG THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO DANCE
I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself - White Stripes
Another hard one, I was gonna do Wild Thing, but...this is better. I have probably danced to this song about 100+ times, including whilst singing it in the street on our way home. And the White Stripes over any of the other versions because of, well, Miss Moss...



SONG 18: A SONG THAT YOU LOVE BUT RARELY LISTEN TO
He Hit Me - The Crystals
Everyone looks at me weird when I try & explain why I love this song so much. I don't listen to it often because you really have to be in the mood for The Crystals, the mood being kind of unfeminist & screwed over by the male sex. Or just when it strikes. I also heard that this is Amy Winehouse's favorite song so I sort of stopped listening to it then. But I don't advocate domestic violence. I like this over their other songs because sometimes you want someone to tell you just how the fuck they feel. Sometimes so much you could hit them. & no it's not healthy...but I also love Florence's Hit With A Kiss, which maybe more people can relate too. If you overlook all the bullshit & think of being in love & passion & being hurt then it's beautiful. Luckily, I just don't feel like that too much anymore.
