Few things....

No puppies on Ananda. Well, not *NSYNC puppies, she's having animals on, so there may very well be some actual puppies later.

I totally didn't remember until reading Dacey's journal, but I too had a dream about LJ last night. I was reading people's entries. That was all, basically.

Saw this in someone's journal, and basically started to laugh. People are so fucking stupid sometimes. It's a list of songs with questionable lyrics. Now, yes, there are some "questionable lyrics" out there, but some of these are ridiculous.
-Savage Garden "Crash and Burn"
-Dave Matthews Band "Crash Into Me"
-Bangles "Walk Like an Egyptian"
-Alanis Morissette "Ironic"
-Barenaked Ladies "Falling for the First Time"
-Fuel "Bad Day"
Falling for the First Time? Bad Day? These aren't "questionable lyrics". Crash into Me is blatantly about sex, but I wouldn't call it questionable.
-Peter Paul and Mary "Leavin' on a Jet Plane"
-Simon And Garfunkel "Bridge Over Troubled Water"
-Frank Sinatra "New York, New York"
These are just absurd.
-Cat Stevens "Peace Train"
What? Questionable by teaching tolerance? Peace Train is a good song. I don't understand this at all.
[I was going to stop with that, but I needed to add these songs here too...sorry]
-3 Doors Down "Duck and Run"
-Third Eye Blind "Jumper"
-Neil Diamond "America"
-Lenny Kravitz "Fly Away"
-Tom Petty "Free Fallin'"
-Foo Fighters "Learn to Fly"
-Red Hot Chili Peppers "Under the Bridge"
-Sugar Ray "Fly"
-Nina "99 Red Balloons"

*sigh* Music is not evil. Music is an outlet. Perhaps if some of the angered youth of America picked up a guitar and a pen, we could prevent some of the tragedies that seem to be so prevalent here.

Oooo...listening to "Falling For the First Time".
Anyone perfect, must be lying
Anything easy, has it's costs
Anyone plain, can be lovely
Anyone loved, can be lost

These aren't questionable. These are life. These are true. Some people are stupid.

i think they might mean questionable in that thier lyrics might cause unneeded grief in light of the tragedy in new york.

'ironic' has a lyric about a plane crash, and alot of the titles say new york and crash or burn. so yeah.

the rage against the machine one bothers me. all thier songs?

that don't seem right.

Re: 2 cents
I realize that a lot do have to do with New York and planes, but still. Some don't seem to make sense to me. "Leavin' on a Jet Plane" is about leaving someone you love. It has nothing to do with crashing. And "Bad Day" is more of a 'make you feel good when you're down' song because it makes you realize everyone has bad days.

I can *almost* see where they are coming from, but, yeah, Rage Against the Machine, and plenty of other bands are on there solely for the type of music they produce.

Not to minimize or trivialize the WTC crash, because it was absolutely terrible, but I think that it's stupid for people to automatically jump up and say "well, this song has a referance to an airplane, so it must be concidered questionable." I just think people need to settle down and come together in the wake of something like this, instead of pointing fingers and making fools of themselves (*coughcough*JerryFalwell*coughcough*)

[Sorry if it sounds like I'm taking out my anger on you. This just annoys me a lot.]

Re: 2 cents
i understand. but i just didn't see the list as the threat everyone else seemed to. it just seemed to me that everyone was getting pissed off about something that looks like it was taken out of context.

jerry falwell is going to burn in hell. and i'll be right there, holding my marshmallow. making smores.
