The Post With All The Song Titles And Stuff

Well, as you may have imagined, my thinly and poorly veiled attempt to steal solicit blog post ideas from other people for 'You Decide Thursdays' didn’t go so well. However, I did get a few suggestions, one of which I will attempt today. The Exception suggested challenged me to write a blog post using as many song titles as possible. Perhaps I am being too cocky (TWSS), but I thought ‘It’s So Easy’ doing something like this. Well, I’ve got a long way to go and a short time to get there, so I better get started. I was tempted to name the artist after every song quoted like Michael Scott might do, but I’m far too lazy I don’t have the time. Now then, ‘Let’s Get It On.’

Since ‘We’ve Only Just Begun,’ I’ll ‘Take it Easy’ for the first few paragraphs. I love ‘The Sound of Music.’ Music makes me happy. I often listen to music just to relax, especially during the weekends. I find that’s it’s especially ‘Easy Like A Sunday Morning.’ OK, I’ll admit that one was stretching it just a little. But you can’t argue that music is much better than the ‘Sound of Silence.’ It’s not like I ‘Rock Around The Clock’ wearing my ‘Boogie Shoes,’ but I do listen to a lot of music. I spend a lot of money on music, because I am not ‘A Penny Lover’ and believe that you can’t take what you save with you when you die.

I write this post after having such a beautiful day here in So Cal. ‘I Can See For Miles And Miles,’ it’s so clear. I am so glad that I did not see ‘Fire And Rain’ today. However, because I’m ‘Workin’ For a Livin,’ I didn’t really get to enjoy it. My coworkers and I spent most of the day crying about how ‘We Gotta Get Out Of This Place.’ ‘What A Wonderful World’ it would be if I at least had a window in my cubicle. I’d even settle for being ‘Up On The Roof.’ In a ‘Perfect World,’ I’d be back ‘On The Road Again’ driving across ‘The Lost Highway,’ preferably in a ‘Convoy’ truckin’ through the night. Of course that would require me to ‘Take This Job And Shove It’ (you knew that was coming, didn’t you. But that’s ok, because I believe that ‘Life Is A Highway’ and I do indeed want to ride it all night long. (Um, if I was a girl that would totally call for a TWSS).

In other news, I helped the twins get ready for their ‘School Days’ in the morning. When I had to wake them up, they kept saying ‘I’m So Tired.’ I made them breakfast and they were acting ‘Crazy.’ They kept trying to touch the stove and I can’t recall how many times I had to tell them ‘U Can’t Touch This.’ Of course when I said that, they replied by saying ‘Hammer time.’ It’s not a song title, but it was funny and yes, it made me a little proud. ‘I Swear.’ I had to go to their school last night for a meeting of the ‘Harper Valley PTA.’ OK, I added the Harper Valley part, but pretending it was really the Harper Valley PTA was the only part that made it worth going. After the school meeting, I took Lucy and Ethel to McDonald’s for an 89 cent ‘Cheeseburger In Paradise.’ I drank a Diet Coke that you could swim in and will probably now be up until the ‘Wee Small Hours Of The Morning.’ Well, ain’t that just ‘A Kick In The Head.’

I now feel like I am just rambling as if I’m ‘Running On Empty.’ Perhaps I need a break. Maybe I should head down to ‘Luchenbach, Texas,’ ‘The Copacabana’ or ‘Jackson.’ I’d say ‘Viva Las Vegas,’ but I’m not always the smartest ‘Gambler.’ A few days on the ‘Chattahoochee’ or a ‘Weekend In New England’ might do me good. It’s got to be ‘Five O’ Clock Somewhere.’ Of course if I keep this up much longer, you’ll all be yelling ‘Help’ or ‘Rescue Me.’

Ok, I’m done now. ‘This Is The End.’ But ‘Don’t Worry About Me’ because ‘I’ll Be Back’ tomorrow. ‘It’s All Right’ if you do worry though because ‘It’s Your Thing’ and you can do what you want to do.

As far as another post using nothing but song titles, I promise I won’t ‘Do It Again.’

'I Burn For You.'

You were really 'Digging in the Dirt' for some of those. But your blog is definitely a place to read about 'The Music of the Night.' I know I'm not going to come close to what you did. The score will be something like '25 or 6 to 4.' The only thing 'Savin' Me' is actually having my WPM window open right now.

So did anyone 'Follow You Home' to pummel the crap out of you after your blatant flaunting of the Carpenters? (oops - 2 Nickelbacks in a row - cheating?)

I guess I should knock it off before I say something really 'Stupid.' Well, even more 'Dumb.'

'So Long, Farewell.' ^_^

Candace: Very, very well done!!!!!!

Patti said...

I can't match Candace's wittiness, nor yours.

But I think maybe it's time for that "White Room" with black curtains for you.

(that's not a drug song, is it?)

P.S. I sent you a Q

ian said...

"Hey, Joe,"

I'm "Going to California" in just under "Thirty Days in the Hole." Although I'm traveling with "Boys and Girls," "Let's Get Together."

Email me a "Message in a Bottle" and "We Can Work it Out."

AndreAnna said...

Seriously, even though I consider you a real actual friend, I couldn't get past the second paragraph. LOL. I think I may have had a mini-stroke from trying to figure out how you did that.

Nice job.

Terri said...

Excellent post! Crazy though. How much time did you put into this or can you just pull that stuff outta your head at a moment's notice? I'm seriously impressed.

Michael C said...

Patti: Not sure if that's a drug song or not.

Ian: 'I Will'

AA: Thanks! Did you really call me an asscake in my other post??
;-)

Terri: Uh, I did that off the top of my head....seriously. 'I Swear'

Heart Of Darkness said...

"Hey-ya", "You Sexy Thing"! I say "Do it again", 'cause you "can't stop this thing we've started" here, can you? :D

brandy said...

Today I walked out of the house only wearing one sock. I swear to God. And yet, YET, you continue to become even more of a genius. This was hilarious and clever. Just thinking of what I would do for this makes my brain hurt. Possibly because I can only remember 4 song titles at a time and if I try to remember more, my brain starts to smoke. Well done here friend, well done!!

Candace said...

One sock? Seriously? How did you do that?

I once went to the airport in a giant hurry, got out of th ecar and found I had one flat and one heel. (I'd grabbed and carried my shoes I was in such a rush.)

I want to hear the sock story.

Dorry to derail your comments, Michael. :)

Candace said...

And also sorry. :-P

Ralph said...

I get a kick out of you!

That's the way I like it!

armalicious said...

This was truly amazing, MC. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing. But I will say that you earned bonus points for using "Convoy" in the story. Seriously...I'm obsessed.

Michael C said...

Heart: Nice, very nice!

Bran: Oh, my head has been smoking all day after this. Would you rather have one sock or be walking into work realize you have on one dark blue and one black sock...cuz I've done...more than once.

Candace: Don't worry, I want to hear Bran's sock story too.

Ralph: Good one!!!!

Armalicious: I thought you might like that as I was typing it.

AndreAnna said...

Yes, asscake is a fantabulous word!!

Amy said...

I think my brain just exploded. That was craziness. Never in a million years could I do that. Kudos to you mein Freund!!

Michael C said...

AA: Ok, that's what I thought ;-)

Amy: Sadly, I speak like that in public sometimes too. We used to have battles at work to see who could name all the song lyrics that had certain words in them...

Odat said...

That was fantastic! (as usual)...
;-)

Peace

Airam said...

I'm completely and utterly impressed!

Michael C said...

Odat: Thank you very much!!
:D

Airam: Yeah, it was kinda geektastic.
;-)

Airam said...

Ha! Forgive me dammit!!

Michael C said...

Airam: Hehehehehe
Ok, It's outta my system now. I promise!! Really.
:D

Candace said...

Geektastic! I love it. ^_^

Michael C said...

Candace: Sometimes, 2 words just collide and it's magical...
;-)

meleah rebeccah said...

Michael C said...

Meleah: Thanks!!!! I may have to do another one of these...

FRIGGA said...

Reading that makes my head spin. I can't comprehend so many titles thrown at me at once - especially from such a wide range of genres!
8-)

Oh, what's your favorite song ever?

Lis said...

This post sounds like it's been a "hard day's night"!

Parlancheq said...

Impressive. I don't think I even know that many song titles.
