while I am taking my shower the radio station I listen to plays All I Wanna Do Is Have Some Fun by Sheryl Crowe - every.single.morning. Can I just tell you how much I HATE that song? I hated it when it was popular and I hate it even more now. At least when it was a hit I could understand why it was being played – some one some where liked it. But I had hope – I ASSUMED it would eventually lose it’s popularity and I would never be annoyed again – but nope – some people just can’t let sleeping dogs lie. I mean really what is the deal – it’s an old song. It isn’t popular. Is it the station theme song? Does one of the DJ’s have a thing for Sheryl Crowe? Is Julie D. calling in every morning with a request? Why must they play this song EVERY SINGLE DAY? What’s the deal? JUST LET IT DIE! And there isn’t even a buffer, just get up, get in the shower, turn on the radio – crappy song, that alone is enough to put me in a bad mood even before I’ve hit the Walmart zone.
And as long as we are on the topic let’s just talk about music for a minute and how it makes us feel (well fine how it makes ME feel - it is my blog after all). Anyway, I can be having a bad morning but let me hear a little Hammer Time or the Hooters or Rob Thomas and I feel all good and non-crabby inside. Or, and this is a quirky thing about me (just in case there weren’t enough quirky things about me already) play some Todd Rundgren and I'm in a very happy place. I love Todd Rundgren. He can always put me in a good mood (sometimes mellow but still good) I mean I know he is pretty much before my time but I still love his music. Play me a little Hello It’s Me and I’m yours. And although Todd is not much to look at his music just does it for me and makes me feel all calm and swooney. Ditto for James Taylor. Oh and Simon and Garfunkle too. I know I know it sounds so middle age and all but really I like new music too. I love that Hinder song and Snow Patrol and Nickelback so I’m not that weird - or old!
Oh and lest you think I am fickle, when I said I love Todd I meant I love his music. REALLY! It isn’t the Mario Mania kind of love – I couldn't forget my Mario just like that! There would have to be a lot more involved than just another pretty voice :-)
Okay so the answer to Monday’s trivia was Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen.
And for today let’s do a spin-off: In which Brat-Pack movie did Emilio Estevez’s character have legal aspirations (yes I made it up myself – but it’s a good one)? (by the way if you've been checking I've changed this question three times because I had the wrong character - but this time it is right - I promise - next time I'll just stick to the Trivial Pursuit questions...)
AND the bonus question (which could earn you your very own hand glittered monogram): What big screen starlet thought Todd Rundgren was her father until she was eleven and caught a glimpse of the real deal?
