Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter

Day 17: A song that you hear often on the radio
Day 18: A song you wish you heard on the radio

I'm really sick of the usual format of my entries for this meme: "Here's the prompt, but I'm so different and special that I have to explain to you all how this doesn't really apply to me because I am different and special - oh, it's so hard to be different and special!". I swear, I'm not really that pompous in real life. Or maybe I am, but at least it's not usually quite as apparent to me :(

So, anyway, I kind of have to repeat myself in that, as I've said before, I don't listen to the radio. Or at least, not the sort of stations they play music on. So I've interpreted 'often' as meaning 'last song you remember hearing'. Which would be this (yes, it was that long ago...):



Maybe if I emigrated...Collapse )

Day 15: A song that describes you
Day 16: A song that you used to love but now hate

So, okay, this song kinda describes me circa 1997 more than it does now, but fuck it, it's always been sort of anthemic to me, so what the hell...



You're only someone that I used to love...Collapse )

I know, I know, I've gotten crazy behind on this. But instead of trying everyone's patience by posting a huge great wad of videos now, I'm going to aim to do two a day until I've caught up with myself. So, onto

Day 11: A song from your favourite band...

Who are my favourite band? [In a Gir voice] "I dooooon't knoooow..." Most of my musical favourites are solo artists rather than bands. But this may be they (although, yes, technically they're a duo not a band, but STFU)...



Feels like another one...Collapse )

Day 7: A song that reminds you of a certain event...

This one was a bit easier, in that I could think of several responses to this prompt, only most of them were very, very dull 'events'. I eventually came up with this one, which at least holds some good memories for me (including giving Mima a pink dye-job)...



This song takes me back to the eighteenth birthday party of a friend of mine back then, Abby. We were mildly obsessed with the Bangles at that point, and I brought along a CD with this on, and made the DJ (who was at college with us, and some of us sort of knew, though I can't for the life of me remember anything about him) play this as the last song of the night for Abs and I to dance to.

Also, that night, I was wearing the shortest hotpants this side of a Kylie video. I had no shame...

Just tried this three times, with three different samples of my writing, and got three results that could not be more dissimilar. This is the only one that didn't offend me hugely. Instead, it's completely laughable - this was an excerpt from my PhD art history thesis...


I write like
H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




EDIT --- Much, much more amusingly - Mima allegedly writes like the guy who wrote 'Fight Club'. Heheheheh...

Day 6: A song that reminds you of somewhere...

This didn't occur to me straight away, even though it really should have done...



On my last but one trip to Japan, Muu-chan and I were seemingly stalked by a promotional van that blared out this song on repeat. So 'Girlfriend' of all songs will be forever associated by me with Shibuya, Tokyo, of all places. I think the random wins out every time.

Day 5: A song that reminds you of someone...

I'm not sure I tend to associate people with indivdual songs. Styles of music, sure, individual artists, absoluetly, but songs? Not so much.

Thankfully, there are a couple of things that spring to mind when I think of Linzi, even if they're by artists I've subjected to her over the years. Such as...



Which is totally awesome, btw :)

Day 4: A song that makes you sad...

Doing this tonight to pre-empt the fact that if I leave it till tomorrow, it probably won't get done, as I'll be out all day, imposing upon Aunty Snake's hospitality.

So this song is sad. Sad songs make me sad. I've had to stop myself listening to this before because I knew that if I continued it would make me blub.

Current Mood: hothot

Day 3: A song that makes you happy...

Today, we have the perfect anitidote to last night's rant. This does indeed make me happy :)

So this is twbasketcase's fault ;P

I know this whole thing will be of interest to me and me alone, but hey no-one's forcing y'all to read this anyway... And anyway, if I'm supposed to keep this up for thirty days, there's a reasonable chance that I'll get bored and give up halfway.

But anyway, here's day one: Your favourite song...

A Case of You

Cut for your sanity...Collapse )
