I very rarely do something that Rick doesn't like or approve of...except when I vote republican in the elections. But today I've done something that not only Rick disapproves of, he actually preaches against it...playlists on blogs.
It's true. Rick hates them. He says things like, "Why do I want to listen to other people's music? Most of it's crap anyways." Although I tend to agree (with the crappy music part), I've been sucked in and started my own playlist, each song with a special meaning.
That's When I Love You - I first heard this song on a Mandy Moore movie (can't remember which one so it must not have been very good) and I kinda dig Mandy, hence the song. Also I really dig Rick...even when he leaves his bloody bandaids on the kitchen table.
Pennies From Heaven - Aren loves this song. He sings it everytime we get in the car and he listens to his homemade cd. And seriously, if you hear this kid sing "Shoo-be-doo-be!" you'll love it too.
Annie's Song - This was Lily's song. I sang it to her when she was in the hospital (which was alot) and it always calmed her down. I sang it to her the night she died and plan on singing it to her the morning I see her again.
Puff the Magic Dragon - This is Tatiana's song. I sang this to her when she was a baby and I still do. And no you big fat jerks, this song is not about smoking a doobie. Peter Paul and Mary said so.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow - I know everyone loves this song and it's sort of an obvious choice, but I've learned over the past few years to not wish for the somewhere over the rainbow. My rainbow is usually now and I love it.
So there you are. My playlist is officially on this site and as a courtesy to the other "Ricks" out there, it is right where you can see it and turn it off fast so you don't have to listen to my crappy music. Sorry Rick for going against your wishes, but it was bound to happen with something besides the elections...Go McCain!
