Thursday for Knowledge

I spend most of my time "telling" things about myself, telling stories, ranting about current events or issues that I might encounter on a daily basis.

Maybe today would be a good time to "ask" you guys something and get your input... well I guess it still involves a little bit of "telling", since i'll give you my opinion on it as well.

Today found me contemplating music, and although there are unlimited topics and resources to discuss about music, I found myself thinking about the most depressing songs that I could remember hearing. Then of course there are songs that are so uplifting they make you wanna change your life, or at least take you sailing through the day with a good feeling.

Then there are the ones that are so annoying that you cannot even abide listening to them for a minute (in which case I flip channels or put in a CD).


So here goes... and list as many as you feel like.

What is the most Depressing song you've ever heard?

What's the most Uplifting or "feel good" song for you?

What's the most annoying song you've ever heard?

What's the best comical tune?

Best "Get Busy" sexy love song?

All around favorite song?


My answers are-
Depressing: "Time in A Bottle" by Jim Croce and "Cat's In The Cradle" by Harry Chapin

Uplifting/feel good: "She Sells Sanctuary" the Cult

Annoying: "Fergalicious" (lately that is) by Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas

Comical: Anything by Weird Al Yankovic

'Get Busy': "These Arms of Mine" by Otis Redding or the whole "R. Kelly" album.

I might think of more...

What is the most Depressing song you've ever heard? A lot of country does that for me even though i like some of it. Too many to list Jackie...

What's the most Uplifting or "feel good" song for you? Probably something along the lines of Wang Chung, Everybody Wang Chung Tonight...

What's the most annoying song you've ever heard? That is a really hard one. i would have to limit that to commercial jingles and such...

What's the best comical tune? Anything Adam Sandler...

Best "Get Busy" sexy love song? Enigma does the trick or something industrial like The Chemical Brothers or Crystal Method, shit even old time classic rock can push the old buttons sometimes...

All around favorite song? Alright, I'll give in and give you one single favorite, Twilight Zone, the long version by Golden Earring....

Once again you have made me think way to much on Half Naked Thursday when I should be enjoying my nakedness and my music completely and not singling any out, I love just about all of it Jackie...

Good Post and good make me tinker about things, way to go....

Big Time by Peter Gabriel is the most annoying songs ever.

Dan fogelburg, Same Old Lang Syne is probably one of the most depressing songs I've ever heard.

These Are Days by 10,000 Maniacs is pretty uplifting. That's all I got so far.
