  1. A little something for everyone on this one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3TvjXC_oMk
  2. "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones and "Love the One You're With" by CSN...
  3. This CD is great for summer dinner parties...especially if you are serving mojitos or caipirinhas... Getz/Gilberto, is an album by Stan Getz and João Gilberto, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim, released in 1964. Its release created a bossa nova craze in the U.S., and subsequently internationally. It brought together saxophonist Stan Getz, who had already performed the genre on his LP Jazz Samba, Joao Gilberto (one of the creators of the style), and Jobim, a celebrated Brazilian songwriter, who wrote most of the songs in the album. It became one of the best-selling jazz albums of all times, and turned singer Astrud Gilberto, who sang on the track of "The Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado", into an international sensation. In 2003, the album was ranked number 454 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
  4. Have you ever seen the movie "Heathers"? It is a bit twisted but hilarious. It came out in 1989 with Christian Slater, Shannon Doherty and Winona Ryder...The 1980's was the best for teen movies!!!
  5. I will admit- I like the lyrics in "Closer"... believe it or not, it's a love song...that specific profane lyric, I believe, is meant to express the primal urge to "connect" with someone, from someone, who doesn't have the emotional capacity to connect... "you get me closer to god. you can have my isolation. you can have the hate that it brings. you can have my absence of faith. you can have my everything" ...with interspersed "help me" littered throughout the song... I know...psychobabble...but I thought I'd at least try to defend this song...
  6. The horns on most of Phil Collins' album "Face Value" are fabulous! Specifically "Behind the Lines"; "I Missed Again" and the intro to "If Leaving Me Is Easy". A truly underrated album- yes- I said it!!! An additional note: "Face Value"'s backup musicians are the Earth, Wind and Fire horn section....
  7. "Hot Women (Cold Beer)" by Goober and the Peas
  8. For right before the mug shots- "Jockey Full of Bourbon" by Tom Waits..
  9. Some serious alliteration in this song... Helplessly Hoping by CSNY Helplessly hoping Her harlequin hovers nearby Awaiting a word Gasping at glimpses Of gentle true spirit He runs, wishing he could fly Only to trip at the sound of good-bye Wordlessly watching He waits by the window And wonders At the empty place inside Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams He worries Did he hear a good-bye? Or even hello?
