My Recent Itunes downloads

RAP
Just a Friend--Biz Markee

This song reminds me of high school. Plus Biz is so off key I laugh every time

Top 40ish
If I had $1,000,000--Barenaked Ladies

Another happy, funny song

Soul
A Change is Gonna Come--Sam Cooke

I fell in love with this song when I was watching ALI.

Classic Rock

Paint It, Black--Rolling Stones

I have loved this song since I heard it as an intro to a TV show about Vietnam.

Blues (kind of)

When Love Comes to Town--BB King and U2

One of my fave songs. Play this when I need to focus and clear my mind.

Drinking Songs (Country)

Its Five O'Clock Somewhere--Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett

Its Hard to Be Humble--Mac Davis

Alcohol--Brad Paisley

All of these are fun, upbeat, playful country songs. The first two are a few years old, while the last one is new. The Mac Davis song brings back memories of hanging out at the pizza parlor as a young kid after Mom's softball games. When they would sing that song most of the time they got together after a game, especially when they won.

Fighting Songs (Alternative)

Alive--Pearl Jam

Rooster--Alice in Chains

I LOVE that Mac Davis song. I used to always try and get someone to sing it karaoke, but none of em knew it! WHAT? It's WAY too low for me to sing...but it's a keeper!

OK, Biz Markee? Hilarious! OH BABY YOUUUUU!

I just hear the BL version of $million last night. I do believe that Simon and Garfunkle did it first, back in the day. It's a keeper though and appropriately timed with the bazillion dollar lottery out there.

Now, Mac Davis is more than a few years old. I LOVE THIS SONG! Ah, country. It's where it's at! And you can never go wrong with, as Ruby would say, Brady-Brad-Brad.

OK, so maybe S&G didn't do the BL song, but I swear that they did, just can't find it anywhere. hmmmm, maybe it's the voices in my head again?

my favorite line of the biz song is, "So I took Blah-Blah's word for it at the time. I thought that just havin' a friend couldn't be no crime- cuz I have friends and that's a fact, like Agnes, Agatha, Jermaine and Jack!"
Yes..I know the whole song..as well as Ice Ice Baby, Too Legit to Quit, Baby got Back, and Shoop! I love early rap. It's too funny!

Say "Go white girl! Go white girl! GO!"

Another stellar one I recently found again and you should definitely add to your collection..

Young MC's- Principal's Office.

Technically, if we're gonna be all sentimental about cheesy old rap...you can't go wrong with Will Smith's-Paren'ts just don't understand!
