The Anthems of Blogging....

Sitting out on the deck and listening to all of the sounds that nature has to offer, is truly one of my favorite things to do. But sometimes, those sounds just don't do the trick. For that very reason, there's a couple of 150w Bose speakers just hanging around, waiting for me to abuse the old eardrums. Last Sunday afternoon, was one of those days.

Our neighbours in Bedrock, aren't exactly close. To make matters even better, there's a fairly dense tree line that helps create an even better separation and sound barrier for my cause. In Bedrock, tunage always = crankage!

So last Sunday as I tried to work off the Margarita head thumps with a little bit of rock thumping, Pebbles wanders by and asks me about the smile on my face, just as another classic starts to wind it's way up to tune.

"This song will always remind me of Kat." I said.

With a brief smile, she wandered off to do her thing and leave me to turn the volume up just a touch. After a bit of time, Peb's sat down and asked, "OK, now who is it?"

"Now who what?" I responded.

She wanted to know who the next particular song was making me think of.

"You kidding me? Drizz....... natch!" I said.

"And this one?"

"Honey come on! Doesn't this make you think of The Rooster?" It always does me.

And so we went on all afternoon. Until finally, Peb's takes the time to stand around in front of me, look me directly in the eyes and say, "I think we just figured out what to do for you 200th. post."

She was right. I was creating a list of Blogger-Anthems.

Now heading into this list, a few things need to be cleared up. Firstly, each and every song is on my play list and at no time did I go searching for the perfect song for any blogger. At the very first few beats of these songs, I honestly associate them immediately with the blogger, (or blog) in question. It may be that we've met, had time to chat and get to know each other, or perhaps it's just that I read certain things into the way you write. Maybe it's a tone in the blog that presents itself as a continuing or recurring theme from life. Maybe it's something I know about you, (or you know about me) that just fits with the tune in question. Whatever it is that gets me there, I've somehow associated a blogger or blog with each of the tunes I'm about to list.

You should also know, I have a rather diversif..... uh... better go with eclectic taste in music. Saying I have everything from A to Z doesn't even cut it anymore. So there might be one or two on the list, that aren't exactly chart toppers.

If it matters to anyone out there, there's not one negative thought that creeps into my head, as a result of the link between blogger and song. Each one honestly makes me smile every time the association process begins.

So I give to you dear readers,

Very cool! and for the bloggers I've met, very apropos!

Kat's is my favourite ;)

For you, though, I would have picked Lust For Life by Iggy Pop.

BadBlood said...

As I try to be everything and everyone, I shrivel up and waste away.

Neilc999 said...

hey bam cool post. Gotta say fuels got the best song there but thats just my taste in music.

I read in one of your last posts that you have seperate accounts for your NLHE and STUD. Are these on the same site? I was thinking about having seperate accounts for my cash and tourny money if that makes sense. Can you let me know if i can do this on stars.

Cheers mate.

Neilc999 said...

I see so basically its all one account but you keep track of what money youve got for what game. Good idea really, i'll have to give it a try.

DrChako said...

I don't know about the rest, but ours are perfect. For you I would pick Scotch & Soda by the Kingston Trio. I'm not really that old, but I love that song. Give it a listen if you get the chance.

Congrats on 200!


Otis said...

Did you know I'm a Steve Earle junkie or was that just an odd coincidence?

Oh, and someday you should listen to Sedaka's "Bad Blood."

Very few more hilarious things than watching our Badblood when the song comes on.

BWoP said...

For my song, I will always have visions of Dana Carvey.



katitude said...

OMG that is so funn!y Nicely done!

But I'd have put my song as Bad Reputation by Joan Jett *grin.

Evy said...

Very creative!!! I enjoyed it, and am honored to have a song attributed to me!

And here I always thought "Crazy Bitch" by Buckcherry would be how most men thought of me.....:)

Riggstad said...
