This week I have decided to be kind, or at least as kind as person can be with a project designed to get songs stuck into people's heads. I will pick a song I love. LOVE I'll be even nicer by giving you music first and then story time.
So way back in 1998. My amazingly awesome/creative friend Jess made a mix-tape for me. An actual tape. It was epic in its greatness. There was not a song on there that I did not like. Not one. Or least now, 12 years later, I will swear I liked every song on there. It was a tape and skipping songs was a pain in the ass so I listened to them all.
On this tape, loaded with good music, was a song by Sublime that I had never heard before. One that had Gwen Stefani helping out on vocals. The song above, Saw Red. I fell in love with this song instantly. And it's short, fast, and kicks ass. The few lyrics, or chorus, get stuck in my head. And it's a scenario many understand, "Everyday I love her just a little bit more, but she loves me the same."
The song makes it here, because of a completely different, but equally as awesome/creative woman. All I needed to sing that song to myself all day was just seeing her mention it.
Be warned, I will not always be nice. And a box of worms has been opened that will lead to you being bombarded by The Pixies at some point.
Thanks for reading,
Yer Ol' Pal,
PS- If the cousin that called me weird on facebook actually clicks the link and reads this, then she will see that, indeed, had no idea how far off I am. *Waves* I did not name names, I'm being nice.
