Song of the Day

No reason for this one, just one I love:

Kokomo by the Beach Boys

Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why dont we go
Jamaica

Off the florida keys
Theres a place called kokomo
Thats where you wanna go to get away from it all

Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
Well be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in kokomo

Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why dont we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo
Well get there fast
And then well take it slow
Thats where we wanna go
Way down to kokomo

To martinique, that monserrat mystique

Well put out to sea
And well perfect our chemistry
By and by well defy a little bit of gravity

Afternoon delight
Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high
Way down in kokomo

Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why dont we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo
Well get there fast
And then well take it slow
Thats where we wanna go
Way down to kokomo

Port au prince I wanna catch a glimpse

Everybody knows
A little place like kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to kokomo

Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why dont we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo
Well get there fast
And then well take it slow
Thats where we wanna go
Way down to kokomo

Aruba, jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To bermuda, bahama come on pretty mama
Key largo, montego baby why dont we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to kokomo

I is dumb

*sits on beach and relaxes*

Mindy, of Kiss My Code, did the current theme (check it out), and man, oh man, I adore it. It totally suits me, and since I’m seriously considering just smooshing TM2TS and TWOOD into one site (just making it easier on myself, but keeping the domain for when the wedding gets closer, XD), this works out perfectly!!

But, come on, admit it!! It’s gorgeous, ain’t it?

Oh, don’t forget about the contest going on!! So far, sawcat‘s in the lead with 2. Anyone wanna knock her out of the running? XD

Music

Last post for today, I swear, XD

Music has a strong grasp on my soul. There are songs on my playlist that are guaranteed to make me cry:
Alyssa Lies – Jason Michael Carroll
Skin – Rascal Flatts

There are songs guaranteed to transport me back in time:
Basket Case – Green Day … it’s the first day of 6th grade, and VJ’s singing it as annoyingly as possible
Hero – Enrique Iglesias … we’re (Josh and I) standing in the parking lot of Grace’s apartment, and Josh is dancing with me, whispering the lyrics in my ear
In The End / Crawling – Linkin Park … I’m in the car, hearing about 2 towers getting slammed with planes (I heard one in the shower, and the other on the way to class)

There are songs that make me wish my wedding was tomorrow:
One Boy, One Girl – Collin Raye

The songs that make me wanna just bust out and dance always make Josh crack up:
Glamorous – Fergie
Call Me When You’re Sober – Evanescence

Some just make me think of my wonderful aunt, whom I don’t get to see enough:
Keep The Candle Burning – Point of Grace
Red Letters – dcTalk

Some just make me giggle with glee:
Miracles Happen – Myra … I love the Princess Diaries
I Dare You to Move – Switchfoot … A Walk to Remember is my “I need a good cry movie”
Cry – Mandy Moore … even the video makes me cry, but makes me appreciate my love

So, what songs touch your heart? Which ones are guaranteed to make you smile?

Now, a little game:
I’m gonna randomize 10 songs (already happens anyway), and post a line, and then you guess!! The one who gets the most correct gets a free month at Sigs ‘n More.

Please don’t cheat. I mean I can’t stop you, but that wouldn’t be fair, though, would it?

  1. Oh, no, no, no, no, no…
    When you feel it in your body
    You found somebody who makes you change your ways

    U Got It Bad – Usher
    –Megan
  2. I’m gonna clean the house
    I’m gonna fix the fence
    In my final hours
    I’m gonna tie up these loose ends
  3. I’ve heard all the stories
    I’ve seen all the signs
    Witnessed all the glory. Yeah
    Tasted all that’s fine

    Nothing Compares – Third Day
    –Kellie
  4. We both lie silently still
    In the dead of the night
    Although we both lie close together
    We feel miles apart inside

    Every Rose Has It’s Thorn – Poison
    Sky
  5. I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
    You get your fill to eat
    But always keep that hunger
    May you never take one single breath for granted

    Martina McBride / Ms. Womack (I can’t spell, XD) – I Hope You Dance
    –sawcat
  6. I keep trying to find a life
    On my own, apart from you
    I am the king of excuses
    Ive got one for every selfish thing I do

    In The Light – dcTalk
    –Megan
  7. I like the feel of your name on my lips
    And I like the sound of your sweet gentle kiss
    The way that your fingers run through my hair
    And how your scent lingers even when you’re not there

    I Love The Way You Love Me – JMM or Boyzone
    –Sky
  8. Dum de de dum, de de dum, de de dum, de de da da.
    Dum de de dum, de de dum, de de dum, de da da, la la la.
    Well, I walk into the room passin’ out hundred dollar bills.
    An’ it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grille.

    Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy
    –sawcat
  9. There are days when I feel
    The best of me is ready to begin.
    Then therere days when I feel
    Im letting go and soaring on the wind.

    On My Knees – Jaci Velasquez
    Sky
  10. I wake up in the morning
    And I raise my weary head
    I got an old coat for a pillow
    And the earth was last nights bed

    Blaze of Glory – Bon Jovi
    –sawcat

Song of the Day

If You’re Going Through Hell by Rodney Atkins

Well you know those times
When you feel like there’s a sign there on your back
Says I don’t mind if ya kick me
Seems like everybody has
Things go from bad to worse
You’d think they can’t get worse than that
And then they do

You step off the straight and narrow
And you don’t know where you are
Use the needle of your compass
To sew up your broken heart
Ask directions from a genie
In a bottle of Jim Beam
And she lies to you
That’s when you learn the truth

If you’re going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If you’re scared, don’t show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there

Well I been deep down in that darkness
I been down to my last match
Felt a hundred different demons
Breathing fire down my back
And I knew that if I stumbled
I’d fall right into the trap that they were laying, yeah

But the good news
Is there’s angels everywhere out on the street
Holding out a hand to pull you back up on your feet
The one’s that you’ve been dragginig for so long
You’re on your knees
You maight as well be praying
Guess what I’m saying

If your going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If you’re scared don’t show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there

Yeah, If you’re going through hell
Keep on moving, face that fire
Walk right through it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows your there

If you’re going through hell
Keep on going, don’t slow down
If your scared don’t show it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows your there

Yeah, If your going through hell
Keep on moving, face that fire
Walk right through it
You might get out
Before the devil even knows you’re there
Yeah, you might get out
Before the devil even knows your there.

–Early, but oh well, XD
