Wednesday Wist

See, Amy, I told you I'd get into the swing of this!!!!

So how do you participate in Wednesday Wist? You take your ipod, winamp, windows media player, mp3 player, itunes player..whatever you use. Put it on shuffle. Grab the first 5 songs and write what that song makes you remember. If it’s a new song…and you can’t relate it to a memory….do you like it? Leave me a comment if you do it on your site and if you don’t have a site, comment what you would leave if you did have one. Oh…and feel free to comment about my songs as well!!! Here are mine for the week!

Midnight Rider - Allman Bros.
I got to run to keep from hidin'
And I'm bound to keep on ridin'
I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me no
I'm not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider.


Ok, not much I can say about symbolism or in depth meaning, this song just ROCKS.

Itty Bitty - Alan Jackson
It's alright to be little bitty
a little ol' town or a big ol' city
Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while
.
LOVE AJ! LOVE country...and my sister is about 4inches shorter than I am, so she's adopted this song as her "theme song". It makes me think about her. Love you Chica!

My Best Friend - Tim McGraw
You stand by me, you believe in me
Like nobody ever has.
When my world goes crazy, you're right there to save me
You make me see how much I have.
I still tremble when we touch
I know the look in your eyes when we make love.
You're more than a lover
There could never be another who makes me feel the way you do
Oh, we just get closer
I fall in love all over everytime I look at you.
I don't know where I'd be without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend.

On top of the fact that I would jump Tim McGraw if given the chance and if he and I were both single, this song has particularly special meaning. PC and I are truly best friends. It's an amazing relationship that formed quickly and deeply. We were married last New Year's Eve and chose this song as our first dance. I had a really LONG day at work and couldn't wait to get home to my busy evening tonight when I was in the car and this song came on. It just makes me so happy. Even better, still, is that I've realized I CAN sing it without sounding like a moron...maybe another song for the band!!!

Who Says You Can't Go Home - Jon Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland)
Who says you can't go home
There's only one place that calls me one of their own
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone, who says you can't go home.

Ok, this was just WEIRD...Bon Jovi & Sugarland...Bon Jovi & Country. Heard this for the first time today and just about freaked....It weirded me out.

Clint Eastwood - The Gorillaz
Hey, I'm happy, I'm feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I'm useless, but not for long
The future is coming on.

Ok, again, no particular meaning. It was the 5th song I heard - and, in the true spirit of Wednesday Wist, it was TOTALLY random. When I got home, LargeBoy & Girl were on the computer and had the disc playing. Again, another song that reminds me of my kids....I kinda like those.

Ok, you're turn now!!!!

Ok...so I'm completely freaking out. In October, Dennis came to Maine to go to a wedding with me....the song, My Bestfriend by Tim McGraw came on....I slowdanced with him and completely fell in love with him all over again. Recently (like YESTERDAY) I downloaded this song and wrote a post with a pic of Dennis and I on it...I just haven't posted it yet....*sigh* Isn't it weird that this was YOUR random song. Ok..maybe it's not so weird..but it makes me feel funny inside :)

So you love the Allman brothers? Gregg Allman lives 10 miles from me. He has just built another big house, right next to his old house. His parties are great, stars fly in by the dozens. I first saw them in Statesboro Ga, when I was at Ga Southern, back in the late 60's, take care, Cat

I really need to learn how to do this. Of course, I probably need an iPod first. Good thing my birthday is coming! Bwah ha ha...
