Music Shuffle

This time I’m supposed to put my music on shuffle and share the 10 first songs. So here is a look to my music taste.

  1. Georgia in a Jug – Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton is one of my favorite artists and my ultimate favorite country singer. This may not be one of my favorite songs from him but I still like it.

2. God Gave Me You – Blake Shelton

This is actually one of my favorite songs from Blake Shelton. It is so earnest.

3. Dawsons Geek – Busted 

Busted is one of my favorite bands from my youth. I still love them and was extremely happy when I learned that they had gotten back together. This is not one of my favorite songs but they have many great songs.

4. Good Country Song – Blake Shelton

I love this song because it reflects some of the reasons why I love country music. It’s different and it acknowledges that it’s not wrong to like a different genre of music than others.

5. Home – Blake Shelton 

I like this song, but I prefer the Michael Buble version. Although, be being sung by either of these men it brings the same feelings to the surface for me. The Michael Buble version just was my first connection to this song, so I guess that’s why I prefer it.

6. Nerdy – Busted

I like this song. When I was younger I didn’t know why I connected to this song so well, but now that I’m older and have let my inner nerd roam free I do. Although the song is about the pain of loving someone who does not appreciate the person being nerdy, I feel like I connect to this song. I am a nerd, not necessarily in the way the person in this song is, but some people still find being a nerd not attractive or don’t like nerds in general. I have embraced my nerdiness and couldn’t be happier.

7. What if it All Goes Right – Melissa Lawson 

To me this song is about embracing the moment and not worrying about the future. We make choices every day that influence our lives. Those chances make our life worth living. You should not be afraid of choosing a particular path just because it might be a mistake. I live my life with the philosophy that you regret the chances you didn’t more than those that you took and ended up being wrong for you.

8. I still Got a Finger – Blake Shelton 

This song reflected how I felt so well the last summer I worked at a local farm. My employer was such a bitch. I sometimes still feel like this when people are getting on my nerves, I just wanna say fuck this and give them the finger. So I love this song.

9. La vida al reves – Fran Perea

I found Fran Perea’s music while watching the tv-series Los Serranos. He soon became one of my favorite singers. While I do not listen to his music as much anymore, I still sometimes go back. It brings back memories of my youth. And they are one of the reasons I know any Spanish at all and wish to learn more.

10. Just Like You – Three Day Grace 

Three Days Grace is my go to band when I’m feeling pissed. The genre is perfect for blowing off some steam. I also like the songs and this song in particular. I think Just Like You was the first song I heard from the band and I was hooked from the first moment. I pride myself on being different and not fitting a mold. That’s probably why this song speaks to me.

 

Your Lips Taste Like Sangria

Tonight is the night I will finally do it. I had promised I’d make my move and today I would finally do it. I had waited for years, and tonight the wait would finally be over, for better or worse. When this night is over I’ll either have the girl of my dreams or I’ll have lost my best friend for good.

I look at her, laughing with her girlfriends. She’s so beautiful, I can’t even find the right words to describe her. She looks my way and waves me over. I go, and soon I’m emerged in a group of laughing girls.

“I’m sorry you have to put up with us girls all on your own. The guys were supposed to be here already” she says as I reach her.

“I don’t mind as long as I’m with you” I answer.

“Aww, that’s so sweet” I faintly hear one of the girls gush behind me.

“Thanks for being here. I know you have a lot of work to do”

“It’s your birthday, of course I’m here” I smile.

Our chat is cut short by the guys coming through the door quite loudly. As the guys gave their greetings to her, I got roped into a game of darts and it was many hours before I had the next chance to talk to my best friend. I was celebrating my win over all the guys when she finally found me again in the crowded bar.

“You won!” I can hear from her voice that she’s a little tipsy.

“Guess I did, now where’s my price?” I joke.

“What would you like for your price?” was she flirting with me?

“Would a kiss be too much?” I ask, and she doesn’t even bother to answer me, she just kisses me on the lips.

“Your lips taste like sangria” I say as we finally pull out of the kiss.

“Yours taste like beer” she says, smiling and kisses me again.

“I love you” I finally let myself be honest after we pull apart again.

 

 

I Could be There in Five

“You know I could be there in five if you need me to” Dylan said on the phone.

“I don’t  know..”

“You sound like your upset. I’d be an awful brother if I didn’t come”

“I don’t want to be a bother”

“You’re not a bother. I’ll be there in five” he says and hangs up the phone.

It’s late, so I’m already wearing my PJ’s but I’m not gonna change because Dylan’s my brother and he doesn’t care. I decide to put the kettle on while I wait for him to arrive. After I put the kettle on, I sat in my armchair and read a book. As the kettle whistled, I started to wonder where Dylan was. Just then I heard a noise coming from the backyard and went to see what it was. As I was opening the back door, the  lights went out.

“Bugger” I curse under my breath.

I decide to walk to the fuse box to see if it was just a fuse. Just as I am at the fuse box, I hear footsteps behind me. Before I have a chance to turn around, I get hit in the head by something.

When I finally come to, I see a man dressed in a black hoodie holding a knife above my head. Just as I think it is all over, I hear a car driving to my driveway. Dylan was coming! I tried to  scream but no sound came out of my mouth. I start to panic as the man brings the knife to my throat.
