Secret Message Music Meme

I started this meme the last time the ’10 Anonymous Messages to the F-list’ thing went around. I’ve done that twice now, so I decided to do it with a twist. I’ve chosen song lyrics that either hold a message or in some way remind me of a friend. I chose carefully, and I really had fun with this. I have 25, but I’m 100% certain that I covered everyone on my friends list.

One set of lyrics can apply to many people, and then many sets of lyrics can apply to one person. As always, if you feel like you recognize yourself in it, claim it for you. :) I will say that some of the less-positive entries apply to people either cut or who were never on my f-list (which is why in the effort of full disclosure, I’m not locking it). But many positive ones apply there, too!

I’d give 5 million cool points to anyone who can list every song on here. And I suppose I’d make it 50 million if you could honestly say you didn’t google/search it. :P





1. How great thou art, how great thou art!

2. Give to me your energy – can I subscribe to your vibe?

3. I've got some imperfections, but how can you collect them all and throw them in my face?

4. I feel like a stranger…feel like a stranger…you know it's gonna get stranger, let's get on with the show

5. Here I am! Want you to know, just if you can, where I stand.

6. I swallowed his facade cause I'm so eager to identify with someone above the ground, someone who seemed to feel the same…

7. I just can't believe -- I wonder if you'll miss me. Hey, goodbye! I wish you stayed here, I wish you were here.

8. Shine on, you crazy diamond!

9. How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people? Now that you know who you are, what are you going to be?

10. Her mental clearance is high, but the overpass is low, she ducks her head, holds on tight, when she gets through she lets go…

11. Bend over, greek sailor…

12. Turn on your love light, let it shine on me

13. I want to fuck you like an animal!

14. That’s all right, I’m waiting here, just waiting to hear from you.

15. Don't cha wish your girlfriend was raw like me? Don't cha wish your girlfriend was fun like me? Don't cha?

16. I…I know how I feel when I’m around you. I don’t know how I feel when I’m around you.

17. Reach out your hand if your cup be empty, if your cup is full, may it be again.

18. Who are you to wave your finger? So full of it - eye balls deep in muddy waters, fuckin' hypocrite

19. But if you wanna find hell with me, I can show you what it's like.

20. Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?

21. I want you, I want you so bad…it's driving me mad, it's driving me mad.

22. I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why, why, why can't it be, why can't it be mine?

23. See here how everything lead up to this day, and it's just like any other day that's ever been. Sun goin up and then the sun it goin down…Shine through my window and my friends they come around…come around…

24. Life is very short, and there’s no time for fussing and fighting, my friend.

25. Now I don't know, but I been told, it's hard to run with the weight of gold. Other hand, I heard it said it's just as hard with the weight of lead.

Oh, glad to provide a challenge. I didn't think it was too hard, but I guess that depends on what kind of music you listen to.

Jesus, let's see. I certainly can't get all of em... but I'll give it a shot.

3. Staind - Right Here
5. Bob Marley - Sun Is Shining
6. Tool - Eulogy (Bill Hicks, RIP)
8. Pink Floyd - Shine On, You Crazy Diamond
12. The Grateful Dead - Turn On Your Love Light
13. Nine Inch Nails - Closer
15. Pussycat Dolls - Don't Cha
17. The Grateful Dead - Ripple
18. Tool - The Pot
19. Glenn Danzig - Mother
20. Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb
21. The Beatles - I Want You (She's So Heavy)
22. Pearl Jam - Black
24. The Beatles - We Can Work It Out
25. The Grateful Dead - New Speedway Boogie

I'm sure some of those were the Dead that I didn't catch. I like em, but I'm certainly not a 'fan' in any intense sense of the word. I'm not even going to attempt to guess which lyric was directed at whom. :)

A therapist would have a field day? Greeeeaaaat. Why's that? Because I'm in lust with half my f-list?

And #24 - shit - are we fighting?

Turd. I know you know yours, unless I remembered the words wrong. :P

4. The Grateful Dead- Feel Like A Stranger

ahavah
Feb. 14th, 2007 12:49 pm (UTC)
I'm not allowed to tell you which is which. :P Although I will say that that's not the one I thought for you - it isn't actually Keller - and I would have thought you'd known a couple more. :P

So are you gonna tell us which one is us? With that many friends, and only 25 songs listed, I kno there's lots of overlap.

So spill it, sister! ;)
ahavah
Feb. 14th, 2007 04:02 pm (UTC)
Well now, that would defeat the whole purpose of secret, anonymous messages. :P

But you're right, there is mad overlap with most of them.

I recognize 1, 8, 13, 15, 19, 20, 22 (a song that resonated with me back when my marriage broke up), and 24. Might know others if I heard them in their musical context.

But I suspect that I am No. 4.
ahavah
Feb. 14th, 2007 04:04 pm (UTC)
Number 4 could honestly apply to most of my newish friends. A bit of a cop-out choice, perhaps :P

LOVE the icon

I only recognize some of the lyrics, but I quite like the ones I do.

Well thank you. Not taking a stab at lyrics or which one's for you? I'm surprised. You're usually claiming all the best ones. lol
