Anywho...many journals are random thoughts and bored ramblings. Yay. Those are always fun.
Also, I'm totally squeeing over the ideas for a matchbox/puppies slash. Mmmm...mixing genres. I can totally see JC and Robbie going at it. Yay! I'm anxiously awaiting Kino's story.
Damn it. Lois posted a survey. You know how I can't resist a survey. And not just that...it's a music survey. Hell, who needs sleep anyways?
The song that represents your friends: "Time After Time" - Cyndi Lauper [they are there to catch me when I fall...]
The song that makes your spirit fly: "Beautiful Thing" - Sister Hazel
One song for the road you travel: "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" - U2.
Driving music: (aka...my CD's of choice for the car?) Sister Hazel - Fortress; Matchbox Twenty - Mad Season; Tabitha's Secret - Don't Play With Matches; Britney Spears - Oops...I Did It Again
Two songs for dancing like a crazy fox: "Dancing Queen" - ABBA; "Stronger" - Britney Spears
Five songs you can't help but sing along with at the top of your lungs: "Stronger" - Britney Spears; "Million Miles" - Tabitha's Secret; "Breakfast at Tiffany's" - Deep Blue Something; "3AM" - Matchbox 20; "Heads Carolina, Tails California" - Jo Dee Messina.
One song you think you sound good at when you sing it acapella: "Tired" - Tabitha's Secret.
Songs that represent people you've loved (past and present): "Time After Time" - Cyndi Lauper; "Your Winter" - Sister Hazel; "Why Do They Call it Falling?" - Lee Ann Womack(?); "The Dance" - Garth Brooks; "When I Fall" - Barenaked Ladies.
Your favorite TV theme: I'm a big fan of the Cheers Theme (especially because Allie has been singing it non-stop for the past week). Also, The Brady Bunch, Friends, and The Simpsons.
A song you play when you're lonely: "Bad Day" - Fuel
And of course, the things you'd never be caught dead with on your life's soundtrack: In all honesty, anything would probably go, as long as the song or lyrics fit. (Maybe not rap though. Blah.)
One song you'd never want to admit to having liked: Oh geez. Um...that would probably have to be "Wannabe" - Spice Girls. (what the hell was I thinking?) Oh yeah, and "MmmmBop"
too. '96 was a bad year for music.
One song you'd be glad never to hear again:
"Follow Me" - Uncle Kracker (can you say "overplayed"?).
One song you shut off the radio when it comes on:
Anything that I don't want to listen to at the current time.
One song you hate having stuck in your head:
Bach's Little Fugue. Damn you, Mr. Thompson!!! (elementary school music teacher. Made us learn classical music, and test us by playing parts that we would have to guess which piece they were in). That and the theme to Passions. Damn song does not leave you head, I swear.
Song that's the best to drive to work/school:
"America Town" - Five For Fighting (it worked last week, figure it must be good).
Song that's the best to drive home from work/school:
"Free Fallin'" - Tom Petty (predictable, yes, but for good reason. I mean, come on. Who doesn't love that scene in Jerry Maguire?).
Song that reminds you of your childhood:
"Hold On" - Wilson Philips and "I'll Be Right There" - Richard Marx (some of my first favorite songs growing up. My intro to music.) Oh, and "Paradise City" - GNR
Music Groups: [oh, geez...]

Basically, see the above (though I still enjoy Madonna from time to time - her earlier stuff, at least).
Music group that you still like after years and years:
Matchbox Twenty....no contest.
