It Only Makes Me Laugh
~ Oingo Boingo

I don't know why I feel this way
I don't know if it's right or wrong to laugh at misfortune
Darkness can never last too long

Every time I think I'm falling
And there's nobody around to hold me up
And it seems like the world has come to an end
I look for miles but not a face is friendly
But then suddenly a hole opens up in the ground
The bottom of the hole is a raging fire
I try to jump over but there's no way
The next thing I know, I'm going down

Does it hurt?
Oh, it really doesn't matter
Does it burn?
Oh, no
Oh, I don't feel a thing
Does it sting?
Oh, yeah, it really doesn't matter
Does it hurt?
Oh, I don't give a damn

When I find myself falling and I hit the bottom
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
When I go down the hole and I hit the bottom--

The last time that I fell in love
The love was milk and honey but the milk turned sour
The woman became a monster
And everyone I knew had become a stranger
But the room went black and my luck was spent
The floor opened up, down I went

Does it hurt?
Oh, it really doesn't matter
Does it burn?
Oh, no
I don't feel a thing
Does it sting?
Oh, yeah, it really doesn't matter
Does it hurt?
Oh, I don't give a damn

When I find myself falling and I hit the bottom,
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
When I go down the hole and I hit the bottom

It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
Coming right back
Coming right back
'Cause you can't keep me down
Can't keep me down
Oh, in the ground

Does it hurt?
Oh, it really doesn't matter
Does it burn?
Oh, I don't feel a thing
I don't mind just a little pain
Wooh, oh yeah
Whoa...

Remembering when I was a young man
How everything seemed to turn against me
I didn't know a soul, it was an alien place
The sun was covered by a dark cloud
And though I tried, I couldn't find a way to escape
The only way to go was straight down

Does it hurt?
Oh, it really doesn't matter
Does it burn?
Oh, no
I don't feel a thing
Does it sting?
Oh, yeah, it really doesn't matter
Does it hurt?
Oh, I don't give a damn

When I find myself falling and I hit the bottom
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
When I go down the hole and I hit the bottom
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh
It only makes me laugh

I don't know why I feel this way
I don't know if it's right or wrong to laugh at misfortune
Darkness can never last too long--
When you laugh in his face
Ooh, ooh, yeah
When you laugh in his face

Wooh!

I don't know why I feel this way
I don't know if it's right or wrong to laugh at misfortune
Darkness can never last too long--
When you laugh in his face

I have probably mentioned this before, but I suspend my usual dislike of pop music when it comes to Pink. She is a big exception to that admittedly flexible rule in my world.

Don't know why—and the "why" isn't important here, anyway—but just now, singing along with this brought an unexpected swell in my heart and a tear to my eye (in a schmoobly-overwhelmed-but-in-a-good-I-love-life kind of way)...

God Is a DJ
~ Pink


I've been the girl with her skirt pulled high
Been the outcast never running with mascara eyes
Now I see the world as a candy store
With a cigarette smile, saying things you can't ignore
Like Mommy I love you
Daddy I hate you
Brother I need you
Lover, hey "fuck you"
I can see everything here with my third eye
Like the blue in the sky

[CHORUS:]
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm
You are the music
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
You get what you're given
It's all how you use it

[Verse 2:]
I've been the girl—middle finger in the air
Unaffected by rumors, the truth: I don't care
So open your mouth and stick out your tongue
You might as well let go, you can't take back what you've done
So find a new lifestyle
A new reason to smile
Look for Nirvana
Under the strobe lights
Sequins and sex dreams
You whisper to me
There's no reason to cry

[CHORUS:]
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm
You are the music
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
You get what you're given
It's all how you use it

[BRIDGE:]
You take what you get and you get what you give
I say don't run from yourself, man, that's no way to live
I've got a record in my bag you should give it a spin
Lift your hands in the air so that life can begin

If God Is a DJ... If God
If God is a DJ (life is a dance floor)
Get your ass on the dance floor

[CHORUS (2X):]
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
Love is the rhythm
You are the music
If God is a DJ
Life is a dance floor
You get what you're given
It's all how you use it

High School Never Ends
~ Bowling for Soup

Four years you think for sure
That’s all you've got to endure
All the total dicks
All the stuck up chicks
So superficial, so immature
Then when you graduate
You take a look around and you say HEY WAIT!
This is the same as where I just came from
I thought it was over
Aw that’s just great

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who‘s the best dressed and who‘s having sex
Who‘s got the money, who gets the honeys
Who‘s kinda cute and who‘s just a mess
And you still don’t have the right look
And you don’t have the right friends
Nothing changes but the faces, the names, and the trends
High school never ends Read more... )

Another musical interlude brought to you by my Creative Zen MP3 player... 'cuz this song is too too sassy and HAWT (why did I just picture Captain Sassypants himself? Oh great, now I'm craving a Fatman BurgerTM...)

Two Girls
Paranoid Social Club


I need two girls
If I can't have you
I need two girls
If I can't have you
One that I can love
To have and to hold
One for at the club
One back at the home
I need two girls
If I can't have you

I need a girl that's clean to bring home to my mom
And one thats got legs that are open and long
One that thinks I'm right; one knows that I'm wrong
One that always fights and throws my clothes on the lawn
One that does laundry and cooks food in the kitchen
One that says she's sorry and one just doesn't listen
This girl wears make-up and that girl's plain
This girl is great but that girl's insane Read more... )

One for at the club
One back at the home
I need two girls
If I can't have you

I need a girl that's clean to bring home to my mom
And one thats got legs that are open and long
One that thinks I'm right; one knows that I'm wrong
One that always fights and throws my clothes on the lawn
One that does laundry and cooks food in the kitchen
One that says she's sorry and one just doesn't listen
This girl wears make-up and that girl's plain
This girl is great but that girl's insane Read more... )

Real post a-brewin' sometime soonish. In the meantime, enjoy these lyrics from one of my favorite bands, The Pretenders:

Hymn to Her
Let me inside you
Into your room
I've heard it's lined
with the things you don't show
Lay me beside you
down on the floor
I've been your lover
from the womb to the tomb
I dress as your daughter
when the moon becomes round
You be my mother
when everything's gone

And she will always carry on
Something is lost
But something is found
They will keep on speaking her name
Some things change
Some stay the same

Keep beckoning to me
from behind that closed door
The maid and the mother
and the crone that's grown old

I hear your voice
coming out of that hole
I listen to you
and I want some more
I listen to you
and I want some more

And she will always carry on
Something is lost
But something is found
They will keep on speaking her name
Some things change
Some stay the same
