What's On My iPod

The Flys - "Got You (Where I Want You)" - This is a song from 1998... which was an awesome year for me! It doesn't show up much in my shuffle, so it was a nice surprise. If you're a Katie Holmes fan, she appears in this video.

No Doubt - "Sunday Morning" - No Doubt's early stuff is what I prefer, and this song is from "Tragic Kingdom" (1995 I believe). I had completely forgotten there was a video for this song - bonus!

Urge Overkill - "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" - If you listen to this song knowing that Neil Diamond wrote it, you can totally see it. I absolutely adore this track from the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, it's a haunting love song! Pulp Fiction, incidentally, is one of my favorite movies; when it was released you'd never seen anything like it, and during the whole movie I was either laughing, dropping jaw, making an "ewwwww" face or feeling complete disbelief. There wasn't a dull moment, and that makes an awesome flick.

Duran Duran - "Careless Memories" - This song is from their first self-titled album, and is probably my favorite song from it. I remember when they released a "video album" that had this video on it, and I watched it more times than I can count. I also have this on a 12" vinyl extended EP, it's one of my prized possessions from my teenage years. :)

Boston - "More Than a Feeling" - I don't include much classic rock here, mostly because videos aren't as easy to find, but I have a huge collection of this stuff. I got a chance to see Boston at the Aladdin Theater a very long time ago (as evidenced by the Aladdin's implosion in 1998). These guys put on an awesome show... wow, thinking about it, I think it was 1994 when I saw them.

Randy: LMAO, that's funny stuff. I'll give you credit though cause it's so catchy you really can't help yourself. So I'm assuming you didn't get carded for anything. Heh!

OH MY GOD!! I totally forgot about that Flys song! I used to love that. Man, I have to go look for that mp3 now. Thanks for the reminder!

You know, it's funny...I downloaded that mp3 and that song is definitely not as good as I remember. Ah well. :)

Too many good songs here not to comment. "Careless Memories" is on of my favorite tunes by DD. Something about the line "...but it always takes so damn long before I feel how much my eyes have darkened" always reminds me of an internal darkness manifesting itself. "More Than A Feeling" is classic, "Got You (Where I Want You)" should have led to better things for the Flys, "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" was a reward to Urge Overkill for endurance (the song was overlooked by many as it appeared on their 1992 EP Still and resurfaced as a hit 2 years later) and I agree that No Doubt's "Sunday Morning" gets overlooked often for other hits. Great collection.
