Some good lyrics

While traveling to the anti-metropolis of Highland, WI for Thanksgiving break, I was doing some pretty hardcore jamming with my iPod. The trip is one of the most boring trips ever. Just a short 1 hour trip down I-94 from Brookfield to the Beltline. A short boring trip down Hwy 12-18 (aka Beltine), then taking 151 South for a unthrilling trip to Dodgeville. From here things get interesting, I hop on County Hwy Q and fly through the hills and valleys in which I was raised.

I have to mention this while I have it on my mind. Do you people all remember when that chick from Madison kidnapped herself, Audrey Seiler. Well, that got some national coverage for a bit. And I remember sitting in Whitewater watching CNN, probably fresh off of calling in sick to Arrow with SARS (remember that shit). Anyways, 24 hour news stations are always searching for something to say. While this might not be exact, I believe it to be accurate as to the conversation.

Reporter 1 (with view from helicopter over the Madison Beltine) - We are looking at an open space of land in which authorities think Audrey may be. It is right off state highways 12 and 18. The locals here call it, "The Beltine"

CNN Anchor - The Beltine, is that at all like the Beltine in Washington DC?

Ok, first off. what was the relevance of that question. Second, Madison, WI....Washington DC.......think about it.

Anyways, while driving I thought of an idea to post some pretty sweet lyrics in my opinion. In no particular order here are a few of my choosing.

Bon Jovi - Bed of Roses
"As I dream about movies,
They won't make of me when I'm dead"

Not too sure why I think this is a good line. Probably because it is a feeling I think most of us have. We all think our life stories would make an excellent movie, but we all know that a) it really wouldn't be a good movie b) people wouldn't pay to see it. This is also a bit of a love ballad, and that always seems, in my opinion, to be a time to think about a movie of your life and its tangled love life.......oh, whoa is me, haha.

Satan - Up There (South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut)
"Without evil there can be no good,
so it must be good to be evil sometimes"

Just think about it, it would seem to be a true statement. Ok, this is a cartoon, and is a big joke...but really, would it not give us a bit of an excuse to do some mischief from time to time.

Blink-182 - What's My Age Again
"No one should take themselves so seriously,
With many years ahead to fall in line,
... I'll never wanna act my age,
What's my age again?"

I like this line because it rings true with my refusal to grow up. Why shouldn't we have fun and live life like we want to. Who says I have to act a certain way just because I am a certain age, that is a bunch of BS.

Lucky Boys Confusion - Atari
"I just want to drink beer and play Atari"

Two of my favorite past times!

Offspring - Bad Habit
"You stupid dumbshit goddam motherfucker!"

Ok, so, I was a kid, Offspring rocked, and swearing was a new, cool thing for me. Why wouldn't this be a good line?

O.A.R. - I Feel Home
"There are few things pure in this world anymore,
and home is one of the few.
We'd have a drink outside,maybe run and hide
if we saw a couple men in blue."

"Feeling alright, heading out tonight,
maybe out to a dark driveway.
I say now some feel bored,and some are looking for more.
Well, we all just decide to stay."

Really, I could have put this whole song in there, but I won't. I love this song, and it reminds me so much about growing up in a small town. We were all friends just passing time with a few drinks in remote locations.

I know there were more lyrics I thought of, but damned if I can remember. Maybe I will do a similar post in the future.
Carry on..........carry on!
