Comment to this post if you want to play, and I'll give you a letter. Then you should post five songs to your own LJ starting with that letter.

dahliablue gave me "S" for Snazzy

Like her I couldn't limit myself to just 5.

1. Same As - KhZ

From their album "Emotronic", which is just what it sounds like. Emotional, electronic music.

Once again thinking about the way I thought it would be.
Don't say it, I want to feel the way that I did.
Same as.

2. Sari - Nellie McKay

If you guys haven't listen to Nellie McKay you need to.

I'm sorry for the time
the stupid way I rhyme
I knew I shoulda chose a life of crime
I'm sorry for my blues
I guess it's all old news
and yet you know that really I'm sorry for you

3. Scar - Missy Higgins

A relationship song - something most of us can relate to

And doesn't that sound familiar
Doesn't that hit too close to home
Doesn't that make you shiver
The way things could have gone

And doesn't it feel peculiar
when everyone wants a little more
So that I do remember to never go that far
Could you leave me with a scar

4. Sex on Wheelz - My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult

This just brings back memories *grins*

I'll turn you on
like a tiger baby
hard body
motor city
love life
I'll take you for a ride
down the mindway baby
be my little human sacrifice

do my kisses burn
do they take your breath
you've got a lesson to learn now
i'm the kiss of death

5. Shabby Doll - Elvis Costello and the Attractions

Because nobody has songs like Elvis Costello

There's a girl in this dress
There's always a girl in distress
She's just a shabby doll
She's so sure she's self-possessed
Then again she's half undressed
She's just a shabby doll

6. Silent All These Years - Tori Amos

What can I say about this one?

But what if Im a mermaid
In these jeans of his with her name still on it
Hey but I dont care cause sometimes, I said sometimes
I hear my voice and its been here
Silent all these years

7. Skellig - Loreena McKennitt

The music alone is beautiful. The lyrics are touching. It tells the story of a monk passing along his knowledge to another monk on his deathbed. Unlike the others, I am going to share the whole lyrics.

O light the candle, John
The daylight has almost gone
The birds have sung their last
The bells call all to mass

Sit here by my side
For the night is very long
There's something I must tell
Before I pass along

I joined the brotherhood
My books were all to me
I scribed the words of God
And much of history

Many a year was I
Perched out upon the sea
The waves would wash my tears,
The wind, my memory

I'd hear the ocean breathe
Exhale upon the shore
I knew the tempest's blood
Its wrath I would endure

And so the years went by
Within my rocky cell
With only a mouse or bird
My friend; I loved them well

And so it came to pass
I'd come here to Romani
And many a year it took
Till I arrived here with thee

On dusty roads I walked
And over mountains high
Through rivers running deep
Beneath the endless sky

Beneath these jasmine flowers
Amidst these cypress trees
I give you now my books
And all their mysteries

Now take the hourglass
And turn it on its head
For when the sands are still
'Tis then you'll find me dead

O light the candle, John
The daylight is almost gone
The birds have sung their last
The bells call all to mass

8. Smile - Lily Allen

Dunno, I just can't help but like this song. I think I've felt this way about someone on occasion, as bad as it may be.

At first when I see you cry,
yeah it makes me smile, yeah it makes my smile
At worst I feel bad for a while,
but then I just smile I go ahead and smile

9.  Sonic Boom - Venus Hum

I fell in love with this band when they opened for the Blue Man Group. Their lead singer also sings "I Feel Love" for them.

Green gum Lips so pink
Hot neon pen
Flash forward take a picture of me
I'm the prize at the end
Swim the rainbow
Drown in paint and sky
I meet my melody
Feeling she's Fascinating

I'm Super Loud like Sonic Boom!
Like racing trains!
Like bells at noon!

10.  Stay ( I Missed You) - Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories

A song for the Gen X crowd. I remember when this song became popular. The single had a version recorded in a living room in Houston, the living room belonged to a woman who won a radio contest. I entered and lost, LOL

You said that I was naive,
and I thought that I was strong.
I thought, "hey, I can leave, I can leave."
Oh, but now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you.
Yeah, I miss you.

You said you caught me 'cause you want me and one day you'll let me go.
You try to give away a keeper, or keep me 'cause you know you're just
scared to lose.
And you say, "Stay."

And you say I only hear what I want to.
