Kick-Ass Tunes

I'm just catching up on some of my pal's blogs and the lovely and SUPER talented SJ Alloco posted this video of Carrie Underwood's single "Before He Cheats" and damned if I don't love that song now. Damned if I didn't use my final free song download (last of 50 that I got from my credit card points... thank you INNYC card! All I had to do was go deep in debt!) to purchase that song. Damned if I'm not listening to that song right now!

I grew up listening to country. It's in my bones. I love it. I ain't gonna deny it either. "Friends in Low Places" comes on and DAMNED if I'm not drawlin' right along.

Add this to the list of songs I can not stop listening to lately. No, they're not all country but they're all great:

1. Let's Call It Off (Girl Talk Remix) - Peter Bjorn and John
2. Neon Bible - Arcade Fire
3. The Perfect Crime - The Decemberists
4. Say It Right - Nelly Furtado
5. Glamorous - Fergie (Thanks to miss Kate Spencer for this one!)
6. Who Killed It? - Nas
7. Can't Forget About You - Nas

God how great is Arcade Fire. It took me this long to listen to them! Sometimes I gotta wait until I've listened to everything else in my ipod 500 times before I can allow new music into my ears. Does that make any sense?

Anyway, it felt good to listen to a ridiculous, country, kick-ass song. So thank you, SJ. Hilarious.

And I leave you with the conversation I heard from the dressing room at American Apparel between two sales-chicks.

Chick #1 - I am so bad at reading stuff out loud.
Chick #2 - Maybe you just overthink it and get nervous.
Chick #1 - Yeah. I'm a really nervous person.

Chick #1 - Don't you wish we had a trampoline here?

Have a great night.

Love,

Glennis

PS - If you were on the receiving end of my Evite disaster today I apologize. Evite has seen the last of me. I'm starting a new website called Ecanyoucomeorwhat.com. Stay tuned.

Glennis.. I have a blog alert set up for Evite, so I saw your post. I would like to invite you to checkout http://www.mypunchbowl.com -- a new site for event and party planning. I'm not sure what your evite disaster was, but hopefully we can help.

I'm so glad you like the song as much as I! I seriously have had it on repeat and even danced around the apartment to it (while pretending I was Carrie Underwood in the video). Let's sing it tomorrow night!
