[Friday] music (and movie) memes

I saw the Somerville Theater marquee today "September 8 Duncan Sheik and Vienna Teng" and thought of musesfool.

(via helholden, among others)

Here are the rules:
- Answer all the questions with the song titles of one band/group/artist. Multiple albums are fine (recommended, in fact).
- State the band/group/artist you're using in the subject line.
- Use songs whose titles answer the question, not songs whose lyrics do. Not all of us know these songs, so it's not as fun.
- Covers are NOT legit unless it is on a normal (non-live) CD.

For a true 10 questions challenge, do this without the aid of the internet/CDs/outside sources.

Frankenmix 4 already? I haven't even finished listening to all the mixes I downloaded last time.

1. A song that could have written about/for you.
2. A song for that bad day to end all bad days.
3. A song about the end of the world.
4. A song about the devil.
5. A song that reminds you of your favorite pair of jeans.
6. A song for lying to your mother.
7. A drunk song.
8. A song for truth.
9. A song you could have written about somebody else.
10. A song to listen to while watching a fire burn.
11. A song about an angel.
12. A modern-day lullaby.

As always, you may be as abstract or specific as you wish. And providing downloads is optional--all the challenge requires is a tracklisting.


1. A song that could have written about/for you.

"As Cool As I Am" - Dar Williams // lyrics

And then I go outside and join the others, I am the others
Oh and that's not petty
As cool as I am, I thought you'd know this already
I will not be afraid of women

While I quote like it's going out of style, it's really hard to select an entire song that fits -- and usually I'm quoting in regards to a specific relationship with someone rather than about me particularly. This song admittedly reminds me of a few specific relational incidents, but I decided on it not just because the chorus is a frequent mantra of mine but because the incidents I associate with it (and the lyrics generally) remind me of how I've grown as a person and the strength I'm continuing to strive for.

2. A song for that bad day to end all bad days.

"Inside Out" - Eve 6 // lyrics

I would swallow my doubt turn it inside out find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart it in a blender
Watch it spin round to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous then I'm through with you

3. A song about the end of the world.

"Mary" - Patty Griffin // lyrics

Jesus says Mother I couldn't stay another day longer
Flys right by me and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels are singin' his praises in a blaze of glory
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place

4. A song about the devil.

"A Case of You" - Joni Mitchell // lyrics

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
Go to him, stay with him if you can
But be prepared to bleed

5. A song that reminds you of your favorite pair of jeans.

"Galileo" - Indigo Girls // lyrics

I know, this seems ridiculous, but it reminds me of finals period spring semester of my first year of college, sitting at my computer at my desk in my room in the sunlight... reminds me of how difficult that time was and how I survived and what goodness and strength I was surrounded by....

how long till my soul gets it right can any human being ever reach that kind of light i call on the resting soul of galileo king of night vision king of insight i'm not making a joke you know me i take everything so seriously if we wait for the time till all souls get it right then at least i know there'll be no nuclear annihilation in my lifetime I'm still not right i offer thanks to those before me that's all i've got to say

6. A song for lying to your mother.

"Mother" - Tori Amos // lyrics

I don't actually read this song as the speaker being untruthful, but it just felt right. [Someone else posted Tracy Bonham's "Mother Mother," which is perfect -- Mother mother can you hear me yeah I'm sober sure I'm sane / Life is perfect never better still your daughter still the same.]

mother the car is here
somebody leave the light on
black chariot for the redhead
DANCING dancing girl
he's gonna change my name
maybe you'll leave the light on
just in just in case i like the dancing

7. A drunk song.

"Tubthumping" - Chumbawamba // lyrics

Yeah, I'm predictable.

He drinks a whisky drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink

8. A song for truth.

"Life Uncommon" - Jewel // lyrics

[I was really tempted to do Ani's "school night," but I just recently posted a download of that song, plus I prefer not to repeat artists in this meme.]

Lend your voices only to sounds of freedom
No longer lend you strength to that which you wish to be free from
Fill your lives with love and bravery
And you shall lead a live uncommon

9. A song you could have written about somebody else.

"Collide" - Howie Day // lyrics

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

10. A song to listen to while watching a fire burn.

"Walk Through the Fire" - OMWF // lyrics

So predictable, I know.

And we are caught in the fire
At the point of no return
So we will walk through the fire
And let it
Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn!

11. A song about an angel.

"Hear You Me" - Jimmy Eat World // lyrics

Hear you me my friends.
On sleepless roads the sleepless go.
May angels lead you in.

12. A modern-day lullaby.

"pulse" - ani difranco // lyrics

and i realized that night that the hall light,
which seemed so bright when you turned it on,
is nothing-
compared to the dawn
which is nothing-
compared to the light
which seeps from you while you're sleeping,
cocooned in my room-
beautiful and grotesque,

(via escritoireazul) Apparently there's a movie version of the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die.

I'm not even gonna do the "Italicize ones I have some intention of seeing." Feel free to tell me which ones I should see. (The classics are probably already on my list.) No spoilers allowed.

In going through this list there were definitely movies that I thought, "Okay, I can see why this is on the list, 'cause it was groundbreaking or formative or whatever, even if I don't think it's worth much as a movie in and of itself," but there are no queer films on this list. I take issue with that.

Anyway, I count 90 of the movies here I've seen.
