Day 01 - Your favourite song

One song? Clearly sir, you're joking (for me, anyway). So, I'm going to cheat and post three of my favorite songs. I have many, many more. :-D

And! For this category at least, I'm going to avoid songs I've already posted about, or songs by groups I've talked about ad infinitum in my journal…which means no NSYNC, no Live and no Dave Matthews Band.

Day 02 - Your least favourite song

Easy, easy, easy. While there are many contenders for the crown, this song just makes my skin crawl. The main reason I hate it? Lyrics. Anyone wanting to inflict their lyrical musings on others should be required to pass a basic literacy exam. Ladies and gentlemen, the first line from "Somebody to Shove":

"Grandfather watches the grandfather clock and the phone hasn't rang in so long...time flies by like a vulture in the sky...suddenly he breaks into song"

The first time I heard this I nearly choked on my tongue. Aiiiiii! Foaming-at-the-mouth here. If I were the lyricist's (HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I use the term so loosely it's sliding down around my ankles) mother, I'd be tempted to pop him up 'side the head every single time I saw him. Hasn't rang in so long. OH MY GOD, I COULD KILL SOMEONE, THIS MAKES ME SO CRAZY.

And! Found this gem of a rant online. Post subject: I'd almost forgotten just how bad Soul Asylum was... Too funny, and too true. ;-)
