song of the day

the last couple of these have come to me courtesy of pandora. pandora is fucking worth it at 10 times the price. pandora learns what you like ... and then only plays shit you'll like. i haven't given thumbs down to a song in a long time now.


say hey (i love you)
michael franti and spearhead
go watch now (awesome video too)

----

this one goes out to you and yours, worldwide

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you.

i've been a lot of places all around the way
i've seen a lot of joy and i've seen a lot of pain
but i don't want to write a love song for the world
i just want to write a song about a boy and girl
junkies on the corner always calling my name
and the kids on the corner playing ghetto games
when i saw you getting down, girl i hoped it was you
and when i looked into your eyes i knew it was true

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you.

now i'm not a highly metaphysical man
but i know when the stars are aligned you can
bump into a person in the middle of the road
look into their eyes and you suddenly know
rocking in the dance hall moving with you
dancing in the night in the middle of june
my momma told me don't lose you
'cause the best luck i had was you

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you.

and i said rocking in the dance hall, moving with you
i said hey momma, hey momma close to you
rocking in the dance hall moving with you
i said hey trippa hey trippa off your shoes!
rocking in the dance hall, moving with you
i said hey momma hey momma close to you
rocking in the dance hall moving with you
i say hey momma, hey momma, hey momma
hey momma, hey momma, hey momma
hey momma, hey momma!

what you gonna do?

my momma told me don't lose you
'cause the best luck i had was you
and i know one thing, that i love you

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know

i say hey, i be gone today
but i be back around the way
seems like everywhere i go
the more i see, the less i know
but i know one thing, that i love you

baby girl!

i love you, i love you, i love you

uh huh, uh huh!

i love you, i love you, i love you
i love you, i love you, i love you

it's true, it's true!

i love you, i love you, i love you

song of the day

conservative christian
todd snider
as performed 2007-02-18, great american music hall
go watch now



conservative christian
right-wing republican
straight white american male
gay-bashing black-fearing
war-fighting tree-killing
regional leaders of sale

shirt-tucking frat-housing
keg-tapping back-slapping
hater of hippies like
tree-hugging peace-loving
pot-smoking porn-watching
lazy ass hippies like me

tree-hugging peace-loving
pro-choicing gay wedding
wide spread panic-digging hippies like me
skin color-blinded conspiracy minded
protesters of corporate greed

we who have nothing
who most likely will till
we all end up locked up in jail
by conservative christian
right-wing republican
straight white american males

diamonds and dolls
boys and girls
living together in two separate worlds
following leaders of mountains of shame
looking for someone to blame
i know who i like to blame

conservative christian
right-wing republican
straight white american male
soul-saving flag-waving
rush-loving land-paving
personal friend to the quayles

why diligently work so hard to keep
the free reins to this democracy
from tree-hugging peace-loving
pot-smoking porn-watching
lazy ass hippies like me

tree-hugging peace-loving
pot-smoking porn-watching
barefoot and hippies like me
