I’m writing this whilst suffering from insomnia. But posting it later – the magic of technology.
But what better way to entertain yourself when probably everyone else is asleep than to go through old CDs and laugh at your taste in music 10 or more years ago?
Tonight? Five and six.
Lawa CD 5, y’all
Track 1 – “When You Say Nothin’ At All,” Alison Krauss.
That breakup took a LONG-ass time to get over. Dang. Apparently we are now at the “But he was so great, not a total asshole, remember the good times” stage. Pfft.
Track 2 – “Underneath Your Clothes,” Shakira
See comment on track one.
Track 3 – “Leavin’ On A Jet Plane,” Chantal Kreviazuk
I wore out this version.
Track 4 – “Baby Mine” Alison Krauss
I think I had just seen O Brother, Where Art Thou and was obsessed with Alison Krauss’ voice and found everything she’d sang that wasn’t on that soundtrack that I’d already listened to 19,000 times. Also this is the song from Dumbo that is heartbreaking.
Track 5 – “We Danced,” Brad Paisley
Yeah I wasn’t completely out of the country phase at this point..
Track 6 – “First Date,” Blink 182
Well this is a change from the previous track. Shit.
Track 7 – “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” Britney Spears
*hangs head in shame*
Track 8 – “Think Of A Reason Later,” Leann Womack
Catchy as hell. And the lyrics are funny.
Track 9 – “Bring On The Rain,” Jo Dee Messina
Ohhh country music is really good for depression.
Track 10 – “You’ll Be In My Heart,” Phil Collins
YEP. FROM DISNEY’S TARZAN. YOU CAN’T JUDGE ME ANY MORE THAN I’M JUDGING MYSELF RIGHT NOW.
Track 11 – “#1,” Nelly
Because that’s naturally what should come next, duh.
Track 12 – “I Got You Babe,” Sonny & Cher
I don’t even…
Track 13 – “Wherever You Will Go,” The Calling
You guys, this CD is making weird noises in the laptop and I’m afraid it might break it. So that totally means I need to break/rid the world of this CD. You’re welcome.
Lawa CD 6 is subtitled “Country Mix 1.” Um, young Laura, I beg to differ. I believe there have been a couple country mixes preceding this one. But whatever.
Track 1: “Prayin’ for Daylight,” Rascal Flatts
Fun fact: I saw these guys in concert like, four times.
Track 2: “Tall Tall Trees,” Alan Jackson
What’s he doing these days?
Track 3: “I Breathe In,” Chris Cagle
And, what’s HE doing these days?
Track 4: “Write This Down,” George Strait
Take a little note…
Track 5: “What If She’s An Angel,” Brad Paisley
I forgot about this song. This is boring, are you bored?
Track 7: “Strawberry Wine,” Deana Carter
Oh man, this song. You know what it’s about? Well, one time I sang it with my best friend and my ex at karaoke and in the middle of it (after several alcoholic beverages) I called out the ex and said “Oh hey, remember that?” HAHAHAHA. Sorry again, Rebeck.
Track 8: “Forever and Ever Amen,” Randy Travis
I will always love this song.
Track 9: “The Lucky One,” Alison Krauss
Oh, there’s Alison Krauss again.
Track 11: “Amazed,” Lonestar
This is a prom song.
Track 12: “What I Really Meant To Say,” Cyndi Thomson
These CDs are where one-hit-wonder country singers go to die.
Track 13: “When I Think About Angels,” Jamie O’Neal
See previous track.
Track 14: “I’m Moving On,” Rascal Flatts
Please tell me this song is a clue to the end of the depression/super-awful song choices on these mixes. At least for a little while…
Track 15: “She’s In Love With The Boy,” Trisha Yearwood
Fun fact: My sister hates Trisha Yearwood.
And with that, I’m sleepy. Hopefully CD 7 is much better..
