Funny what you find on your ipod


I was driving down the road, listening to my ipod, and this song came on. Now I am not a big country music fan, so I am not sure where I got this song, but I think I know. Any how- I laughed so hard, sadly because it is so true.

"Alcohol"

I can make anybody pretty
I can make you believe any lie
I can make you pick a fight
With somebody twice your size

I been known to cause a few break ups
I been known to cause a few births
I can make you new friends
Or get you fired from Work

[1st Chorus]
And since the day I left Milwaukee
Lynchburg and Bordeaux France
Been making the bars lots of big money
And helping white people dance
I got you in trouble in high school
But college, now that was a ball
You had some of the best times
You'll never remember with me
Alcohol
Alcohol

I got blamed at your wedding reception
For your best man's embarrassing speech
And also for those
Naked pictures of you at the beach

I've influenced kings and world leaders
I helped Hemmingway write like he did
And I'll bet you a drink or two that I can make you
Put that lampshade on your head

[2nd Chorus]
'Cause since the day I left Milwaukee
Lynchburg and Bordeaux France
Been making a fool out of folks just like you
And helping white people dance
I'm medicine and I am poison
I can help you up or make you fall
You had some of the best times
You'll never remember with me
Alcohol
Alcohol

[Repeat 1st Chorus]

Across The Universe

Current mood:Trippy
Category: Music

Last night I saw the movie Across The Universe. I loved it. It began with Jude (Jim Sturgess), sitting on a quiet beach front singing "Girl", and ends with "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" playing during the end credits. In between is some fantastic music and a pretty good story as well. You have to know the Beatles' catalog to get the subtle references to their songs sprinkled throughout the movie. It is fun to try and find them. Names alone: Lucy, Jude, Sadie, Mr. Kite, Dr. Robert, Prudence, JoJo, Rita.


I love this song, not only the melody, but the words. Poetry, plain and simple - simply Lennon/McCartney. I can so relate to the second verse.


Strawberry Fields Forever



Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.

Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.
It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out, it doesn't matter much to me.

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.

No one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high or low.
That is you can't you know tune in but it's all right, that is I think it's not too bad.

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.

Always, no sometimes, think it's me, but you know I know and it's a dream.
I think I know I mean a 'Yes' but it's all wrong, that is I think I disagree.

Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.
Nothing is real and nothing to get hungabout.
Strawberry Fields forever.
Strawberry Fields forever.

Check out the Beatles doing a video for the song. You happen to think drugs were involved? Of course they were silly.
