random song meme lol  
The six songs that define you - and why.

Drops of Jupiter (Train)

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall from shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there?

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that there's a room to grow, hey, hey

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

But tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day?
And head back to the Milky Way?
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind?
Was it everything you wanted to find?
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there?

Can you imagine your love fried, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you
Even when I know you're wrong
Can you imagine your first dance, freeze dried romance
Five-hour phone conversation, the best soy latte that you ever had
And me

But tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet?
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day?
And head back toward the Milky Way?
Tell me did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights are faded?
And that heaven is overrated?

Tell me, did you fall from shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself?

Nanana...
And did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
Nanana...
And did you fall from a shooting star, fall from a shooting star
Nanana...
And are you lonely looking for yourself out there?
For me, this song is the beginning of my life in fandom, specifically STARGATE. I first heard it when I was quite young one a stargate (team) music video. It now reminds me, not only of fandom, but of the show itself and what stargate stands for - the adventure to worlds other than our own, the things that are waiting for us out there and the lives that we lead here on earth. It reminds me of the friends I have lost in fandom now that that part of my life is over - some of you may even remember sg1-database and the years, afternoons and early hours we spent laughing with people we will never meet and those friends that I will always have. They are all good memories and only sad now that those times are gone.

Bittersweet Symphony (The Verve)

Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony, this life
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah

No change, I can change, I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next...
I can't change my mould, no,no,no,no,no,no,no (have you ever been down?) no, no, no

Well I've never prayed
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can change, I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no

Have you ever been down?
I can't change it you know, I can't change it...

Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down...
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah

You know I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next.
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no
I can't change my mould, no, no, no, no, no
You've gotta change my mould, no, no, no
(It's just sex and violence, melody and silence)
(Gotta, can't change my violence, melody and silence)
(gotta can't change my violence, melody and silence)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Gotta, can't change my violence, melody and silence)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)
(Gotta, can't change my violence, melody and silence)
(Been down)
(Ever been down)
(Can't change my violence, melody and silence)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Ever been down)
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?)
(Have you ever been down?)
This IS life. Simple as that.

Delirium: Silence (Sarah Maclachlan)

Give me release
Witness me
I am outside
Give me peace

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe
That I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides

In this white wave
I am sinking
In this silence
In this white wave
In this silence
I believe

Passion chokes the flower
'Til she cries no more
Possessing all the beauty
Hungry still for more

Heaven holds a sense of wonder…

I can't help this longing
Comfort me
I can't hold it all in
If you won't let me

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe
That I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides

In this white wave
I am sinking
In this silence
In this white wave
In this silence
I believe

I have seen you
In this white wave
You are silent
You are breathing
In this white wave
I am free

The only song I hear when I am writing my novel - a novel that has been part of my life for nearly 8 years. It is about oppressed worlds fascinated by unattainable beauty.

The Cup of Life - (Ricky Martin)


Do you really want it
Do you really want it
Do you really want it

Go, go, go (go, go, go)
Ale, ale, ale (ale, ale, ale)
Go (go), go (go)
Go (go), go (go)
Here we go (yeah)

The cup of life, this is the one
Now is the time, don't ever stop
Push it along, gotta be strong
Push it along, right to the top

The feeling in your soul is gonna take control
Nothing can hold you back if you really want it
I see it in your eyes, you want the cup of life
Now that the day is here, gotta go and get it
Do you really want it (yeah)
Do you really want it (yeah)

Here we go, ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go, ale, ale, ale
Tonight's the night we're gonna celebrate
The cup of life, ale, ale, ale

The cup of life, it's do or die
It's here it's now, turn up the lights
Push it along, then let it roll
Push it along, go, go, go

And when you feel the heat, the world is at your feet
No one can hold you down if you really want it
Just steal your destiny right from the hands of fate
Reach for the cup of life 'cause your name is on it
Do you really want it (yeah)
Do you really want it (yeah)

Here we go, ale, ale, ale

Go, go, go, ale, ale, ale
Tonight's the night we're gonna celebrate
The cup of life, ale, ale, ale

We're gonna get it
Do you really want it
We're gonna get it
Do you really want it
Yeah

The cup of life, this is the one
Now is the time, don't ever stop
Push it along, gotta be strong
Push it along, right to the top

The feeling in your soul is gonna take control
Nothing can hold you back if you really want it
I see it in your eyes, you want the cup of life
Now that the day is here, gotta go and get it (yeah)
Do you really want it (yeah)
Do you really want it (yeah)
Do you really want it (yeah)

Here we go, ale, ale, ale
Go, go, go, ale, ale, ale
Tonight's the night we're gonna celebrate
The cup of life, ale, ale, ale

Un, Dos, Tres, ole, ole, ole
Un, Deux, Trois, ale, ale, ale
Tonight's the night we're gonna celebrate
The cup of life, ale, ale, ale
Ale, ale (ale, ale)
Ale, ale (ale, ale)
Ale, ale (ale, ale)
Ale, ale, ale
Ale, ale (ale, ale)
Ale, ale (ale, ale)
Ale, ale (ale, ale)
Ale, ale, ale

Yeah
Do you really want it
Yeah


Grew up in the 90's? Don't pretend you didn't rage to this. It represents my childhood - and the first time you truly become aware of world events (and ricky martin's unfathomable arse) and pretending to sing in spanish.

Can't Stop - (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

Can't stop addicted to the shindig
Chop top he says I'm gonna win big
Choose not a life of imitation
Distant cousin to the reservation
Defunct the pistol that you pay for
This punk the feeling that you stay for
In time I want to be your best friend
Eastside love is living on the westend
Knock out but boy you better come to
Don't die you know the truth as some do
Go write your message on the pavement
Burnin' so bright I wonder what the wave meant
White heat is screaming in the jungle
Complete the motion if you stumble
Go ask the dust for any answers
Come back strong with 50 belly dancers

The world I love
The tears I drop
To be part of
The wave can't stop
Ever wonder if it's all for you
The world I love
The trains I hop
To be part of
The wave can't stop
Come and tell me when it's time to

Sweetheart is bleeding in the snowcone
So smart she's leading me to ozone
Music the great communicator
Use two sticks to make it in the nature
I'll get you into penetration
The gender of a generation
The birth of every other nation
Worth your weight the gold of meditation
This chapter's going to be a close one
Smoke rings I know you're going to blow one
All on a spaceship persevering
Use my hands for everything but steering
Can't stop the spirits when they need you
Mop tops are happy when they feed you
J. Butterfly is in the treetop
Birds that blow the meaning into bebop

The world I love
The tears I drop
To be part of
The wave can't stop
Ever wonder if it's all for you
The world I love
The trains I hop
To be part of
The wave can't stop
Come and tell me when it's time to

Wait a minute I'm passing out
Win or lose just like you
Far more shocking
Than anything I ever knew
How about you
Ten more reasons
Why I need somebody new just like you
Far more shocking than anything I ever knew
Right on cue

Can't stop addicted to the shindig
Chop top he says I'm gonna win big
Choose not a life of imitation
Distant cousin to the reservation
Defunkt the pistol that you pay for
This punk the feeling that you stay for
In time I want to be your best friend
Eastside love is living on the westend
Knock out but boy you better come to
Don't die you know the truth as some do
Go write your message on the pavement
Burnin' so bright I wonder what the wave meant

Kick start the golden generator
Sweet talk but don't intimidate her
Can't stop the gods from engineering
Feel no need for any interfering
Your image in the dictionary
This life is more than ordinary
Can I get two maybe even three of these
Coming from space
To teach you of the Pleiades
Can't stop the spirits when they need you
This life is more than just a read through


SCORE OF MY LIFE. THAT IS ALL


Chemical Heart (Grinspoon)


When you look for a ride and you need to get high my friend
spend all your time just a walkin around instead
like black rose its somebody to hold for them for them

lets go outside havin nothin to hide for free
can't seem to see the forest from the trees
grass is always greener but how do you know we'll see we'll see

(CHORUS x 2)
can't get started
chemical heart
everytime i get started
you pull me apart

forgotten maybe things are right on the other side of dawn
better off wishin for the stars to kill the sun
like packed rows that nobody can hold no one no one

(Chorus x 2)

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh

When you look for a ride and you need to get high my friend
spend all your time just a walkin around instead
like black rose its somebody to hold for them for them

(Chorus x 2)

yeah.
(Chorus until fade out)
This has special meaning to me but I have never been able to place why. I always end up listening to it and no defining list would be complete without it. Especially with lines like, "better off wishing for the stars to kill the sun"

I adore Can't Stop, one of my favourite Chili Peppers songs ever.

Bittersweet Symphony and Silence are also great songs.
